The tour guide Veronica was very nice and knowledgeable. The tour just wasn't that great. My husband thought we could have done it on our own. Alot of time was wasted waiting to get the pizza that we ate outside and understanding that it was dinner time on Saturday, I still feel when you are paying for a service you expect better. Also I would have thought a small bottle of water would have been nice to swallow down the pizza. I just wasn't that impressed.

Very disappointed with this tour. Online description stated group limited to 12, but was overbooked so group was larger. First slice of Mediterranean style pizza was very good. Next slice of Napolitano pizza was so soggy the cheese and sauce ran off into the box when picked up. First slice was the only one with toppings. Guide showed no enthusiasm, just walked form place to place without engaging the group. Online add said we would visit the USS Constitution. We didn't even get close. If you like plain cheese pizza this might be for you. I don't think it's worth $49.

We had a wonderful time on the pizza and cannoli tour! Our tour guide Veronica was knowledgeable and very funny, sharing fun historical insights as we walked all throughout the North End. Even as Boston locals, we still learned new things and were very entertained! Also we can’t thank Veronica enough for being so accommodating to our group, making sure everyone’s needs were met.
