What an amazing experience! Our guide Laurel was super knowledgeable and shared the history of the South End, not only that but the food was wonderful! 6 different local restaurants- each with food more tantalizing than the one before. LOVED it!!!

Google Bites of Boston and their website will pop up. You can make the reservation online and they will reply with a confirmation. Then just show up at the location they tell you. Very simple. Have fun!
