  • Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour: The Food to Freedom Tour is environmentally friendly because unlike many of the tour companies in Boston, you walk as opposed to using buses or other vehicles.
  • In the morning when you are in the famous North End, all of the food stops are 100% owned and run by locals, ensuring that local people benefit from tourism to their city. So any inclusions on the tour and additional purchases you make will directly benefit the local community.
  • You also stop at a couple of world-famous churches which are as much a part of Boston (and America's) history as you can get. Both the Old North Church and King's Chapel are non-profit organizations that work hard to educate school children and adults on American history and colonial life. By paying an entrance fee, you are helping to maintain the church and their work.
  • Most travellers can participate
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travellers

As others gave said when you think of 5 hour tour you worry. However every minute is jammed packed w new sights sounds smells and tastes. Great way to see most of Boston then go back and visit spots at your leisure. Ive lived in the city but still saw and learned new things.

Thank you for that great review! We had a fun time yesterday and I appreciated your sense of humor. One of my favorite things is when I have someone who has lived in Boston on my tour and I get to show them things they never saw before. Enjoy the rest of your time in Boston. cheers!

Thanks for your review. Our guides always like to show Boston in the best possible way and bring our guests to places they might not find on their own - especially in the North End.
