About Yummy Walks

Yummy Walks is about giving everyone a giant, mouth-watering taste of life in Boston - the food, the culture, the history, and the people. Spend a few hours with us and see why we’re the best food tour in Boston!

Boston is known as "America's Walking City". We think walking is the best way to truly experience a neighborhood. Our tours highlight different neighborhoods that are filled with history, interesting architecture, and wonderful restaurants and markets. Trying traditional foods along the way completes the cultural experience.

We love Boston!

Meet The Founder

Alex Gagnon

Alex Gagnon founded Yummy Walks Food Tours in Boston in partnership with Guide Service of Boston, Inc. At the end of a 28 day hike of the Appalachian Trail with only a handful of trail mix and an apple left, he thought about combining a great walk with plentiful food. After taking many food tours in various cities he felt that the historical aspects of the tours were lacking and often he left the tour hungry. Yummy Walks was created to combine a professional tour and a food tour in one.
