Beacon Hill & Back Bay Food Tour
From US$95.00
Discover culinary hot-spots on this guided food tour, which allows you to experience Boston’s historic neighborhoods and explore the city’s food culture at the same time. Stroll through Beacon Hill and the Back Bay, dine at award-winning restaurants, and visit off-the-beaten-path specialty shops selling nuts, chocolate, wine, and cheese. Tastings, and an elegant multi-course lunch are included.
What to Expect
Your afternoon begins downtown at the Liberty Hotel, where you meet your guide before heading to a nearby restaurant for a light 3-course lunch.
Then, visit two specialty shops selling nuts and chocolate. Continue on to enjoy a savory tasting at a local bakery.
Head to a little-known wine and cheese shop for yet more samples, sightsee in Louisburg Square (the home of John Kerry), see Boston’s most-photographed street in Beacon Hill, and visit a picturesque botanical garden.
Top off your experience with an elegant multi-course dinner and enjoy a tasty dessert.
Your tour ends at the opposite end of the street from where you started. If needed, your guide can walk you back to the original starting point.
