"My chocolate and pastry tour was designed to help you discover the sweet secrets hidden within two distinct neighborhoods, taking you on a journey through time, and eating incredible food along the way."

WHY BACK BAY?

The Back Bay is an incredibly diverse mix of culture, historical sites and of course, delicious food! We'll be exploring some of its best sweet treats as we walk along the famous Newbury Street, which is a popular high-end shopping district. The early history of this area offers a fascinating insight into the culinary and cultural atmosphere of today.

Any visit to Boston wouldn't be complete without a walk through the Back Bay area and we're so excited to share our love for this city with you on our tour of this area.

Yes, but parking in Back Bay is limited so please give yourself enough time to look for a space. We recommend parking at a meter or one of the many lots in the area.

What if it rains or I change my plans?

The weather can be unpredictable in Boston. In Boston we don't let a little rain, sleet or snow stop us. Our tours run rain, snow or shine as the majority of the tour will be in the venues! Please note, if your plans change, we do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We can reschedule you to a different day if space allows. Safety First: We do reserve the right to cancel the tour if we feel the weather conditions are extreme and we will contact you directly to reschedule or refund. For more info see our Terms and Conditions.

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
