Derek was an amazing tour guide! He knew all about Boston and the food. We all had such a wonderful time exploring and getting to know him. I really couldn't recommend this tour enough. Absolute must do if you're new to Boston! The food was incredible as well.

We had a mix of local Boston folks and out-of-towners in our group, and everyone had a great time. We were worried the weather was going to ruin the fun, but even with light rain we all had nothing but good things to say when we were done. Derek was a fantastic guide, and was really knowledgeable. The structure of the tour is well thought out, it doesn't feel like too much walking, and there is a good balance of history and food. Definitely would recommend!

Great
Even though it was a rainy day, we all had such a great time on the tour. Derek was really personable and knowledgeable, we were lucky to have such a great guide. Even the Boston locals in our group had a wonderful experience and learned some new things! The way the tour was broken up it never felt like too much walking and the progression of food throughout the day was well thought out (it starts at 10, so donuts and pastries were an ideal first stop).

Great tour - so glad Boston was added to the list of food tours. Derrick, our guide, was the best - very accommodating with the pace of the tour, very knowlegdeable about the food we had as well as food in general. And including historical sights in the tour was a plus. A must tour for Boston!
