North end pizza and freedom walk tour

We had a party of 7 and there was another couple so total of 9. This was basically a walk through north end with barely a mention of the freedom trail history. We stopped 2 pizza places and waited on the curb while our guide went in and ordered a pizza to go and we ate slice at a nearby “park” while standing. The third was finally a sit down restaurant where we could order a drink along with our slice. While in a small area waiting on our pizza, the election results came in and our guide and the other couple started talking politics. NOT WHAT WE PAID FOR😑 Huge waste of money all around. The pizza was delicious but for the $350 we paid it was complete waste of money and time. My advise, do a self guided freedom walk tour and stop in any of the delicious restaurants for pizza and save yourself the money.

Our tour guide, Dave was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He pointed out the points of interest on the Freedom Trail and explained them in detail. The "pizza" portion of the tour was excellent! We a slices of pizza at three different establishments and enjoyed each slice. I would highly recommend this tour!

What a great experience. The pizza was to die for as was the cannoli! Tour guide was AWESOME & accommodating. We really appreciated the extra time he took to accommodate a deaf member of our group (something that other tour guides DID NOT do). I would give it 10 stars if I could!

I loved this tour! It was a perfect combination of history, humor, walking, and great pizza. Our guide was amazing - provided our group with great points of history along the walk, kept the walking pace comfortable (even for an older woman), and provided plenty of time to enjoy our 3 pizza stops along the way. I never felt rushed. I would definitely take this tour again and am looking forward to their seafood tour and tavern tour. This was such an enjoyable and worthwhile experience - I came away feeling my money and time were well-spent.

Martin did a great job showing us around the North End. Being able to blend the history with the current environment. The pace of the tour was perfect. The pizza we tried was amazing and we wished we would have done the tour earlier in our visit because of the recommendations of other eateries in the area. Well worth the time and money!!
