About us

Hello there, food explorers and Boston buffs!

Welcome to Boston Food Tours, your number one source for all things delicious and interesting in Beantown. We’re committed to guiding you on an unforgettable journey through Boston’s rich culinary neighborhoods, unearthing hidden gems, long-time favorites, and fresh new finds..

Boston Food Tours is a passion project turned full-fledged resource for all your foodie needs in the city, and it’s the brainchild of Michele Thompson. Born and raised in the midwest, Michele moved to Boston in 1994, armed with nothing but her adventurous spirit and an insatiable appetite for culinary exploration. Over the years, she’s trekked through every neighborhood, from the historic North End to the innovative kitchens of Cambridge, in her quest to discover and taste the city’s offerings. She is a dedicated devourer of everything from mom-and-pop pastries to five-star dining experiences.

Why is Michele a veritable expert, you ask? Well, when you’ve sampled clam chowder from over a hundred different spots, can debate the merits of cannolis from every bakery in the North End, and can tell you the precise order to taste your way through the food stalls at Faneuil Hall, we think that gives you some serious street cred. Through Boston Food Tours, Michele isn’t just sharing her experiences – she’s sharing her love and deep knowledge of the city’s vibrant food scene.

Michele’s passion is to help both tourists and locals alike navigate the city’s diverse culinary offerings with confidence. She’s an enthusiastic guide, but also a respectful student of the city’s ever-evolving food culture. She’s seen first-hand how immigrant communities have shaped and enriched Boston’s food scene, and she’s always on the hunt for the next great dish that tells a story about the city she loves.

So, whether you’re a long-time Boston resident or just in town for a visit, we hope that Boston Food Tours can serve as your go-to guide for where to eat in this great city. Join us as we continue to eat, explore, and celebrate all the delicious flavors that Boston has to offer.

Bon Appétit!
