  • Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour: The Food to Freedom Tour is environmentally friendly because unlike many of the tour companies in Boston, you walk as opposed to using buses or other vehicles.
  • In the morning when you are in the famous North End, all of the food stops are 100% owned and run by locals, ensuring that local people benefit from tourism to their city. So any inclusions on the tour and additional purchases you make will directly benefit the local community.
  • You also stop at a couple of world-famous churches which are as much a part of Boston (and America's) history as you can get. Both the Old North Church and King's Chapel are non-profit organizations that work hard to educate school children and adults on American history and colonial life. By paying an entrance fee, you are helping to maintain the church and their work.
  • Most travellers can participate
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 12 travellers

Thank you for your review. We often get couples, families and single travelers on our walking tours. We keep our groups small so everyone gets a chance to meet and mingle with everyone else. And our guides make sure that everyone is included in the group. Glad you had a great time. Hope to see you on another Urban Adventure.
