A great tour in the North side, with lots of history. Paula was a excellent guide and took us to places we wouldn’t have tried on our own. Learn some history while enjoying local favourites.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

I believe you meet at 10:45am but the website will tell you. The tour length depends a bit on questions, etc., but three hours is a good bet. I'd plan to be done around 2pm.

Yes. Very relaxed pace. Lots of stops. Only two sit downs so you have to be able to stand for a fair time.
