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 have exciting news that we have launched three new food tour experiences!
Please read the following press release about these exciting new tours.
Our Lowell Food Tour is finally open for booking - hurrah!
We are so excited to present our new Lowell Food Tour, a downtown cultural canalways tour which is first in the series of two that we are developing in the city. For the last decade or so, we have been exploring Lowell every chance we've gotten. The city has actually changed remarkably in that time. A bunch of new food concepts have also developed in the city, and it's become a really beautiful downtown area with romantic canalways surrounding the old brick and granite buildings, iconic buildings like City Hall and the Sun building, and wide cobblestone streets. There's a bit of industrial feel almost like Providence, Rhode Island, and lots of museums and cultural destinations to explore.
A few months ago, we shared Life as a Maven's top 10 places to visit in Lowell. Well we're excited to share that Timna from Life as a Maven herself will be available to be one of our Lowell tour guides. How lucky are we to be able to share Lowell with guests through the eyes of a true local who is full of great recommendations and stories. Timna and our other Lowell guides will take you through the history of Lowell through modern times including what's happening now in this diverse and energetic city. From the birthplace of Jack Kerouac to the history of the mills to University of Massachusetts in Lowell to the LUNA Theater, there's a lot to explore and see.
So dust off whatever you thought you knew about Lowell and come ready to see it with eyes anew. There's a lot to LOVE about Lowell, and we can't wait to share it with you.
The Lowell Downtown Cultural Canalways Food Tour is available on Saturdays from 11:30am-2:30pm. Book today via our website.
We were absolutely THRILLED to be asked to participate in a WCVB TV5 Chronicle taping with co-anchor Shayna Seymour! This past week, we were honored to take Shayna on a Harvard Square Chocolate Tour. Stay tuned to watch the taping and let us know what you think (it's rumored to be debuting on Monday, August 27th so set your DVR!)
We were also excited to have gotten the notice of Babson's WIN Lab women's entrepreneurship accelerator. Our founder Lizzie is a Babson MBA alum and sat down with the WIN Lab to give advice to others prepping for their first TV interview. Read on to hear what she said below or by clicking here.

Lizzie Bell, a Babson MBA alumna from the Class of 2011, launched Off The Beaten Path Food Tours in 2017, running food tours, chocolate tours, and trivia nights in foodie-fueled neighborhoods like Somerville, Cambridge, and Jamaica Plain. Each guided tour features a healthy dose of local history and the chance to try delectable cuisine from up to 7 local businesses, often meeting the owner themselves.
Recently, Lizzie met one of her entrepreneurial goals when WCVB TV5’s Chronicle news program gave her a call with an invitation to be featured on the show. After filming wrapped up, we sat down and asked Lizzie to share her top 5 tips on getting ready for the camera.
We're excited to see our Harvard Square Chocolate Tour featured on Chronicle WCVB TV5 on August 27, 2018. Save the date and tune in to let us know how we did!
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.
We are excited to work with our guide Carol who has a background in nutrition and food safety so is a wealth of knowledge on our tours. Carol loves the Northeast and is quite active. You can catch her biking to Bedford after one of our tours or taking part in many cultural activities around town. One thing you might not know about Carol is that she worked as a radio host and DJ. Maybe you can ask her more about these jobs on your next Davis Square Food Tour!
We look forward to meeting you this weekend. To read more about Carol and our other amazing guides, please refer to the About Us page on our website.
The Davis Square Food Tour runs weekly on Wednesdays through Sundays year-round. Book today via offthebeatenpathfoodtours.com.
