    Our guide Adam was awesome and his commentary added an additional level of flavor to the tour. For the price, I would have liked to receive a bit more food. The quantities were fairly small

Meet in the courtyard of Bloc Cafe MBTA: The easiest thing to do is take the MBTA to a close stop and then Uber or taxi ten minutes to Union Square. The closest MBTA stops are: the Red Line's Central Square or the Green Line's Lechmere station. You could also take an MBTA bus from Harvard or Davis Square MBTA stations. Parking: Our tours run 2 - 3 hours so it is easiest to take the train or Uber/Lyft to Union Square or park in a private lot instead of utilizing street meters. Meters usually run for 2 hours time limit in general but in some places are 3 hours. You may be able to leave the tour briefly to refill the meter if that's your best option. On Sundays, street parking is free. Public Parking is available in a three nearby lots — beside the Old Firehouse/SCAT building in the center of Union Square, on Washington Street behind Ricky’s Flower Market, at the corner of Prospect and Somerville Avenue.
