    This is a must see guided tour of food and history in the heart of Boston. Luci B was simply amazing. The experience gave me the confidence now to explore the city on my own in the future. I do not feel as lost today exploring the city as I did when I first moved here. Thank you Luci you really are amazing.

    Corinne was excellent. Funny, informative, and kept a great energy going. Food was amazing and plentiful and great historical facts as we covered a huge part of the City physically and culturally. Would highly recommend as a great introduction to all Boston has to offer.
