Martin was fabulous! All of the pizza options and canolli were excellent. 3 different styles and each was a top contender in its style. There was a perfect mix of walking and history and pizza stops. Martin clearly is an expert in the area and gave a great local flavor to the tour. we enjoyed it so much that we're planning to come back and do their Pub and Ghost tours in the fall. Highly recommend this tour company and Martin!!!

The guide was great! It was nice having a guide that grew up going to the North End. He could give us the back story which made everything more interesting. I loved combining the Pizza tasting with the Revolutionary History of the North End as well as an architectural tour. Pizza was great!

We had a good time. The tour was interesting from the historical aspect and stopping for pizza, which were all good, made for an enjoyable time. we've been to Boston on several occasions, but never really been around the North End. In the future we'll check out more of the restaurants in that area. Our guide, Dave, was knowledgeable, humorous, and was thrilled to find out we are from Buffalo, NY as he is originally from this area. So prior to and during the tour we talked about many aspects of Western New York. I think he got a bigger kick out of the tour then we did. In all I would recommend this tour to anyone.
