We took the Sweet & Savory Tour Yesterday (10/1/2017). We visited 6 places and sampled dishes at each one. The food was delicious and the pace of the tour interspersed with local landmarks and history lessons was perfect. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Laurel was a great guide for our Bites of Boston South End walking food tour. Knowledgeable, well-spoken and entertaining, she combined the history of the South End with interesting background information on the 6 restaurants/offerings and their owners. Highly recommend.
