Overview

Sample some of Boston’s most delicious pizza and beer on this history-focused walking tour. Grab a slice in the city’s oldest neighborhood, the North End, and have a cold one at a historic tavern that may have been frequented by your favorite revolutionary war hero. See Boston’s iconic sites on foot and enjoy stunning city views on a quick ferry ride through Boston’s Inner Harbor. 

What to Expect

Start your tour with a slice of pizza in the North End, Boston’s Little Italy and its oldest neighborhood. Then, head to the historic waterfront neighborhood of Charlestown, home to a wooden-hulled frigate named by George Washington (the USS Constitution) and one of the first major battles of the American Revolution, the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Grab another slice before jumping on the 10-minute ferry to Long Wharf pier. Stop by the Old State House, Boston’s oldest public building, and its oldest church, Old North Church. Check out Fan Pier for another great view of the city and head to the Blackstone Block, Boston’s oldest business district. Snag your last slice in the North End before finishing the tour at the Green Dragon, the basement watering hole whose clientele once included John Hancock and Paul Revere, or Bell in Hand, America’s oldest tavern.

Great Tour!

We had a great time on this tour. Rina’s Pizza was our favorite slice. Sam was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We would recommend this tour. The description states a ferry ride...we didn’t experience that, not sure why!

Happy to hear that you had a great time! We switched up tavern tour routes this past Spring, so we don't use the ferry any longer - I apologize for that old description. Thank you for the review and recommendations!

Great sites, beer and pizza

Our guide was very personal and engaging, didn't hurry us at all. History mixed in. Would highly recommend. Second stop for pizza was "Rina's", which we thought was the best we ever had in our life. Stunningly good.

I don't recall anything quoted as gluten free- you need to contact the tour guide, he's very good. Beer is featured in cost, but you can drink anything you want.

Not sure. Pizza at Rina's was simple cheese pizza. Contact the tour.
