Know More about this tour

Indulge in Boston’s eclectic pizza culture on this 3-hour walking tour. Bring your appetite when you meet your guide in the North End, Boston’s oldest neighborhood. Settled in 1630, it’s also known as Little Italy, and Italian is still spoken in the streets.

Aside from sampling a cheesy slice in this neighborhood, you’ll get a taste of Boston’s history. See Boston’s oldest pizzeria, with an oven from 1883, and stop at the spot where the famous ‘Crime of the Century’ — the armed robbery of the Brink’s Building — happened in 1950.

Follow your guide down the cobblestone streets of neighboring Charlestown to see tavern ruins dating all the way back to 1635. Then stop at a historic tavern, established in 1785, for the second slice slice of the tour. Work up some more appetite on the walk past Bunker Hill Monument and through the Charlestown Navy Yard to see the USS Constitution, nicknamed ‘Old Ironsides.’

Then the walking tour gets sea legs on the short, scenic ferry ride to the historic Long Wharf. Bust out your camera for snapshots of the steeple of Old North Church, Fan Pier and the Old State House — the oldest public building still standing in Boston.

It’s a short walk back to the North End for your last slice before venturing to the Blackstone Block, Boston’s oldest commercial district. The tour wraps up in the North End at either the oldest tavern in America or a tavern known as the ‘Headquarters of the Revolution.’ Cheers! Take some time to order a beer (own expense) to complete the day.

  • The pizza 3 were all good. The third one won a major prize last year and we could taste why. The three taverns visited all had good, different local brews. This tour provided a very good introduction to the Italian section of Boston and a few highlights of local lore and history. The tour guide was knowledgeable and clearly stated his opinions.

  • The Pizza was great, the Taverns were great. Our guide Sean had a lot of historical knowledge to pass on to us. It was a lot of fun.

  • We were the only people on the tour and had tickets for Elvis Costello that night so we cut the tour short. Guide was good and crammed as much as possible into the time we had with him.

  • Jimmy was fantastic, funny and very informative. He knew his history, which made it even more enjoyable! Even though it rained in the beginning, the sun did shine. This tour was a great way to learn some amazing history about Boston and taste good pizza at the same time.

  • My children and I loved this tour! It was great to hear the history of the North End and eat at three different Pizza Restaurants and a couple of pubs. We went back to one of the places the next day for pizza and pastries! I would definitely recommend this tour if you are interested in the history of Boston and the good food in the North End.

  • Very informative and fun tour.

  • This was not really what we thought. The Taverns part of the tour was one tavern and you have to buy your beer in addition to the cost of this ticket. The description said we would end up at either The Bell in Hand or The Green Dragon. Not sure what one only one Tavern we went to but it was a nice place. The pizza was cheese pizza 2 places and one BBQ chicken pizza. Not really that impressive. The ferry ride back to where we started was a nice touch though.

  • Jimbo was fantastic and he was funny and in wonderful sports even though it was just slightly raining. Our group was small so it provided a better experience. Not only did we taste good pizza but we learned some amazing history about Boston. Hi Jimbo's mom :- !!!

  • This was a great trip - but be prepared for a LOT of walking!!!

  • We really enjoyed this tour. The pizza was fab and Jimbo was a great guide; informative without being dry. The walk in the early evening was really pleasant and we felt as though we packed a lot into a short time.
