"Had a wonderful North End tour with our guide Gene. He was knowledgeable, energetic and gave us an additional 30 minutes to the tour. I have lived in the area for 10 years and I learned new things about the North End.We took the tour on a Friday afternoon, so our group was small (only 4) which made it nice and more personal feeling. For $12 per person you really can't go wrong!" - Malden, MA
