Don’t Take Our Word For It

I am from the Boston area and grew up here all my life but had never taken the time to explore some of the city’s most historic sites and learn about them. This tour was the perfect way to do so with really fascinating history and some walking mixed with delicious bites around town. I opted in for the beer add-on and loved trying some beers I had never tried before. This is the perfect date-day activity as I went with my girlfriend who also loved the tour. Our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable too making the experience even better. We can’t wait to take the other tours that Bites of Boston has!

This tour is wonderful for both visitors to Boston and for locals! I brought friends from Toronto on the tourand we all loved it. The restaurant stops are fabulous, the guide was really amazing, and we learned so much about the history of the South End— which is certainly one of the best foodie neighborhoods in town. They are full of suggestions and information about the city so it is a great way to kick off a stay in Boston. Highly recommended!

The Allston Arts & Eats Neighborhood Food tour was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in August. Amanda was a wonderful tour guide and she brought us to some great places in Allston. The murals were also very cool and it was nice to learn about how each mural came to exist. Having lived in Boston over 10 years ago it was fun to eat at places that were fairly new and serving up food that was absolutely delicious! If you are looking for a fun activity the next time you are in town I would highly recommend this food and art experience.

We’ve lived in MA all our lives and have enjoyed so many Boston neighborhoods and restaurants but have never ventured into Chinatown. Our loss and today became a great find! Nicole and Laurel were great guides and we learned a lot about the origin of the food we sampled and the history of the families that own the establishments, as well as the history of Chinatown. We’ll definitely return to explore more of Chinatown because of this introduction. Thank you Nicole and Laurel for a nice day.

I participated in 3 Bites of Boston tours while visiting my son recently. As a tour operator myself, I can attest this company is first class. All 3 guides were professional, enthusiastic, and extremely informative, not just about the food we sampled, but also the history of the area. I expected it to be all about the food (which would have been just fine with me!), but these tours are so much more. Great fun, and a wonderful way to become acquainted with the different areas of Boston.
