    Audrey was a delightful, enthusiastic and knowledgable culinary queen and tour guide/host. As both founder of the Boston Foodie Tour and a gourmet chef, she guided us through a delectable afternoon of an array of foods...from pizza and pasta to cannoli and sub sandwiches. Funny, candid and engaging...Audrey was delicious!

    Audrey our host was wonderful. We were three in our group so it was like getting a private tour. The food was delicious. We warn don't eat before you go.

    Audrey was a delightful guide and the food was all top notch and delicious. Enjoyed learning the history of the North End and visiting many one of a kind businesses.

    SO fun and informative! Loved the trivia questions about the North End. Food was delicious, well paced out. Definitely recommend not planning anything else right after the tour- give yourself a buffer of an hour or more to relax and digest and enjoy!

    Loved this tour. It was basically a private tour since we were the only group…an added bonus! Audrey had so many fun and interesting stories about the North End. Two members of our group are from Boston and they even learned some things. And the food…absolutely delicious! You will not leave hungry. Highly recommend!

    Audrey shared interesting information about the North End neighborhood’s history, culture and characters as she led us to sample pizza, pasta (when she recommends the rosete pasta at Limoncello, listen to her and order it! So good!!), bread, subs and cannelloni.

    This was such a great tour! Audrey was a wonderful guide--very nice and also knowledgeable about the North End. We loved the food that was included on this tour. If we go back to Boston, would definitely do this tour again! Highly recommend!

    The food was amazing, and plentiful! Our tour guide was a neighborhood local and shared backstory details about the North End, bringing the area to life. The food choices were fun and delicious - save room for the cannolis! My out-of-town friends and I had a wonderful time.

    Had a great tour! Audrey did such a great job talking about the North End and the food was fantastic! Can't wait to go back to many of the places again!

    What an awesome day! Audrey is such an incredible guide and hostess. She had a wealth of information for the North End and of course for the food. All of her stops were delicious and the restaurant owners were very kind and welcoming. We highly recommend Audrey and her tour. Thank you so much!!
