The Basics

There’s no better way to experience this marketplace than to grab a bite at one of Quincy Market’s many restaurants or food stalls. Stop by on a hop-on, hop-off bus or trolley tour and watch street performers execute acrobatic and musical feats at the historic Faneuil Hall, sit in the rotunda while enjoying a cup of coffee, or step outside to soak up sunshine and enjoy the festive street atmosphere.

Visit on a narrated coach or city bike tour and let a guide show you the best hidden spots, or delve into Boston’s past on a Freedom Trail history tour. Because of its central location, Quincy Market is also an excellent jumping-off point for visiting other nearby attractions such as the New England Aquarium, Boston Children’s Museum, Boston Public Garden, and Museum of Fine Arts.

We had Sully on our tour and he was fantastic. Sully is a Boston native so of course he had a Boston accent! We explored a variety of foods/desserts as well as historical landmarks/statues. Sully knew so much about Boston's history you'd think he was around during the revolutionary war. We took this tour on our last day in town however he had some great recommendations for the others in our group. Would highly recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed the tour and the food. We met in front of the Samuel Adams statue. We started our tour on time. Our tour guide, Sully was very knowledgeable about important events in the history of Boston. He was very professional and personable. I enjoyed the restaurants he selected and the food we sampled. I left feeling full. I would recommend this food tour and purchase it again.
