What To Expect On A Bites of Boston Private Food Tour

We firmly believe that food is best enjoyed when served in the context of your local surroundings and our neighborhood food tours are carefully curated to create just that experience for your group. At Bites of Boston we host walking food tours through some of Boston’s most unique neighborhoods, diving into the history, culture, and food that makes them special. While we run public tours throughout the week, we also offer the unique experience of a private food tour, which can be specially crafted for your group’s needs.

From happy hour tours, to lunch tours, to dinner tours, we have something that’s perfect for everyone! Private tours are ideal for special occasions such as birthdays, bachelorette parties, company outings, team bonding, and really anything else that you may want to celebrate. For more ideas of what to celebrate with a private tour click here.

What is especially great about a private food tour is that you get all the benefits and fun of the public tour but in a more intimate setting that is catered directly to you and your group. You also have a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide all to yourself. Read on to get to know more about what happens on a Bites of Boston Private Food Tour.

Each of our tastings on the tour have a fascinating story behind them, so not only do you get to taste delicious local bites, you get to learn the stories behind them as well!

2.  You’ll stroll the streets

Half of our tours are spent outside experiencing and exploring the local neighborhood. In order to enjoy this fully we suggest that you wear comfortable shoes and clothing, plan to be outdoors, dress for the weather, and plan for the forecast. We’ll have fun in any and all types of weather!

Maybe you work in the area but have never explored the surrounding places or maybe you’ve never even been to Boston – so join us and we’ll guide you. Most locals are surprised as to how much they learn on our tours!

Our tours are part tour, part tasting, and all fun! This is a unique way to get together with your group and spend time together while tasting amazing local food and learning about a local neighborhood.

Boston’s food scene is booming and it’s the chef’s of all different backgrounds and experience that make the city’s food scene so diverse. Learn not only about the foods themselves but the chefs who inspire and prepare them.

What to do to prepare for your tour:

Before you join us for a private tour be sure to go through this list to make sure you are fully prepared and can have as much fun as possible!

1. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be prepared for all weather. We will be outside and on foot exploring the neighborhood between tastings rain or shine, so make sure you are prepared for the weather and to be out and about.

2. Bring a bottle of water to enjoy throughout the tour. Not all tastings will include a beverage.

3. Eat a small meal 2-3 hours before the experience – try not to come starving or too full.

4. Communicate any allergies and food restrictions to us prior to the tour. At least 48 hours notice is preferable.

5. Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so we may start right on time. The eateries will be expecting your group at predetermined times. Also plan to stay for the entire tour as the restaurants have thoughtfully set up for us at each stop.

6. Plan to take plenty of photos – and there will be many terrific opportunities – and tag us on social media!
