Locally owned by a native Bostonian and culinary school graduate, Boston Foodie Tours’ (“BFT”) focus is three-fold: “recognized” award-winning best eats, culinary education, and our city’s rich history. Our tour partners include many Best of Boston winners, some James Beard Award winners, food institutions, and the like. BFT has been awarded the 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and maintains a 5-star guest rating on Yelp.

Our tour route will bring us through the historic, 200+-year-old Haymarket Market on Fridays and Saturdays. We hear Julia Child used to shop here first thing in the morning! 

Our first stop is the two-year-old, indoor Boston Public Market, which is a must-visit, whether a local or a visitor to Boston. It’s comprised of up to forty local food vendors, some of whose stories we’ll hear firsthand. We’ll also enjoy tastings throughout, including a popular doughnut, honey, roasted nuts,, flavored salts and drinking vinegars. And how could we forget seafood? Will a lobster roll tasting at a Boston of Boston Fish Market do? We thought so! 

Next, we’ll move on to the historic North End, Boston’s Little Italy. There, we’ll visit FOUR Best of Boston winners: a sandwich shop, two different kinds of bakeries, and a pizza shop. And if we’re lucky, we might even score some just-made mozzarella cheese!

Our tour will end with a bowl of iconic chowder** at a restaurant rated by Forbes as one of the ten classics in the world.  And, don’t worry, we won’t forget to send you home with a cannoli!

Join Boston’s tastiest food tour as we “Stroll. Sample. Savor. Repeat.” our way through the city’s best eats.

*Gluten-free donuts available.

**Substitutions available for vegetarians and/or non-seafood/pork eaters.

Note: Tour stops subject to change. Tour does not run on holidays, when Boston Public Market is closed.
