Guests, local and tourists alike, often ask us about Boston's Freedom Trail. Yes, we've done the Freedom Trail and it really brought to life the history of Boston over the past 250 years and the American Revolution. It's really fun to see guides dressed in period costume.
Here are some bullet points to help you familiarize yourself with the Freedom Trail:
We hope to see you on a future Off The Beaten Path Food Tour! We walk 1-1.5 miles on our tours, and we explore off-the-beaten-path destinations with rich history and delicious food in Boston neighborhoods such as Somerville, Cambridge, Lowell, and Boston.
We truly are honored to work with the best guides in Boston, in our opinion! Our brand new Central Square Cambridge Food & Mural Arts Tour is no exception. Our guide Sai is extremely creative and comes to Boston from Northern California. Having attended Berklee, Sai is also in a popular rock band. You can see why he's a perfect fit to tell the story of Central Square, an area with one of the best music scenes in the region.
And who better to share the unique stories of Central Square, Cambridge as Sai works by day at the Central Square Business Association which is the organization that dreamed up and made these murals happen in the first place. He's also available during the week to give private tours, including corporate tours with area businesses, so definitely send us a note if you're interested in scheduling a unique team bonding activity.
Our Central Square Food and Mural Arts Tour runs Saturdays at 12:30pm-3:30pm. Book today via offthebeatenpathfoodtours.com or email us to schedule a private group tour. We can't wait to meet you!
We love Jamaica Plain, Boston and are excited to share our favorite activities in this vibrant and close-knit neighborhood.
Here are our top 10 things to do in Jamaica Plain, Boston besides our Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour and Jamaica Plain Food Tour. We will continue to add to this list so check back in for more ideas, and we hope to hear yours too!
Next, pop on over to nearby Roslindale Village (known as "Rozzie" Village to the locals) and check out their Saturday Farmer's Market as well as ComedySportz. We are starting a brand new food tour there next summer and can't wait to show you around town.
Our Jamaica Plain Food Tour runs every Sunday at 11am, and our Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour runs every Saturday at 2pm. We can't wait to host you. Book today via offthebeatenpathfoodtours.com.
Have you tried one of our Food Tours or Chocolate Tours yet? Our newest tour is our Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour. People may be surprised that just because the tour is dairy-free (and our Harvard Square tour can be made dairy free), it's not all dark chocolate. The tastings are varied and quite creamy - and we stop exclusively at small businesses created by local entrepreneurs. Plus you'll learn all about the magical fruit cacao on this walking tour as well.
One of our incredible JP Vegan Chocolate Tour guides is Mika. We are so lucky to work with Mika, a wealth of global knowledge who has lived all over the world from California to Japan and especially loves the East Coast. Mika is quite knowledgeable about sustainability and skin care (did you know that cocoa butter is often used in skincare?) so definitely ask her about it when you're on the tour. Plus she's bilingual in Japanese, so we can do a private group tour in Japanese as well for any groups interested. We know you'll learn a lot from Mika. Hope to meet you this Saturday!
Our Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour runs Saturdays at 2pm. We also host a Harvard Square Chocolate Tour on Saturdays at 2pm and 7pm. Book today via offthebeatenpathfoodtours.com.
We are so lucky to work with such amazing guides, and this week we are featuring one of our newest guides, Cam!
Cam has lived and worked in JP, and he is excited to help kick off the JP Vegan Chocolate Tour which runs on Saturdays at 2pm. Both Cam and guide Mika are working on this awesome tour which is fun for vegans and non-vegans alike.
What makes Cam perfect for his job as a tour guide is his love of training - he's not only a corporate training at his day job at Mass Mentoring Partnership providing trainings for youth-workers and schools across the Commonwealth but also a rugby coach. We're proud to work with someone like Cam who is making such a positive difference in our community through activism and community building.
Cam is also an avid cook, and his favorite stop on the Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour is definitely for ice cream. Won't you join us this weekend for a tour?
Jamaica Plain Vegan Chocolate Tour runs Saturdays at 2pm. We also have a Harvard Square Chocolate Tour that runs on Saturdays at 2pm and 5 or 7pm. Join us at offthebeatenpathfoodtours.com.
In this new series, we are highlighting the names and faces of the people behind our favorite tour stops! This week, we interviewed Alan from Davis Square's Oat Shop. With one full year of business behind them, we can't be luckier that Oat Shop is in town. On our Davis Square, Somerville Food Tour we stop at Oat Shop and try out one of their many delicious and ever-changing oatmeal bowls, and we hope you join us!
