Boston Foodie Tours offer all you might expect in the way of Boston bucket-list eats: pizza from Regina’s, cannoli from Modern Pastry, the maple bacon donuts from Union Square Donuts and Union Oyster House chowder so thick you can stand a spoon up in it. With a culinary background of her own, Boston Foodie Tours owner Audrey Giannattasio is a Boston-area native who delivers an insider’s approach that appeals to Bostonians and out-of-towners alike. Still craving Lydia Shire’s lobster pizza? You can get it on the tour. How about the perfect lobster roll with just a kiss of dressing made with mayonnaise, crème fraîche and a squeeze of lemon? Red’s Best Seafood in the Boston Public Market makes them fresh every day.

Giannattasio and her team have been making food memories for eight years. Guests from the ages of 1 to 102 have eaten their way through the North End, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, Haymarket and now the Boston Public Market. Spring school vacation brings thousands of tourists to Boston every year and food tours are be - coming a go-to activity for people entertaining houseguests. Boston Foodie Tours delivers the unique combination of American history, charm and delicious food that Boston is known for. What says spring in Boston better than a stroll through the tulips in the Public Garden on your way to sample a meringue egg with lemon filling at Ostri on Charles Street?
