Scotty was an awesome tour guide. He told us a lot of interesting historical info and has a fun personality. The pizza and cannoli were amazing. When traveling to places I’ve never been, I love to book walking tours that take you off the beaten path so you get a more “local” experience. This tour was definitely that kind of tour. I would highly recommend it. I fell in love with Boston’s North End during this tour.

Our guide, Scottie has a terrific sense of humour and was able to bring Boston history alive for us all. We enjoyed three totally different types of pizza. All yummy!!! Cannoli's speak for themselves. Sweetly delicious! The weather was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon in the North End of Boston.
