Colorful, historic Davis Square in Somerville is fastly growing as one of the area's hottest neighborhoods to live and eat and is often coveted by local food critics as one of Boston's best food scenes. On this unique food tour, you will hear fascinating stories from local entrepreneurs about how they started their businesses and understand the most interesting tidbits from its rich history. We will sample innovative eats such as bowls from the area's first oatmeal cafe as well as dynamite family recipes such as gyros packed with flavor.

"My partner and I had an absolute blast on the Davis Square Food Tour. Our guide was so friendly and genuine and had a wonderful way of telling stories about the places we visited and history of the area in between food stops. The portions that you get on the tour are surprisingly substantial and delicious! My favorite part of the tour was finding new places in Davis, which is a place I have frequented for years. I am still dreaming about the food there and have revisited several of the places." - Guest via TripAdvisor
