Meet your small group in Savannah's beautiful Historic Downtown to begin your savory and sweet journey through the flavors of this lowcountry city. Learn about Savannah's long and colorful history, grand architecture and easygoing way of life from your informative local guide as you make your way through the city's four original squares and along its scenic waterfront. Along your route, visit several different restaurants and food shops to sample a wide array of local specialties such as shrimp and grits, pork belly donut slides, Scottish and English cuisine (a nod to our city's founders) and one-of-a-kind honey.

This was an excellent tour! It had the best of both worlds, history and food of Savannah! I would recommend having a late breakfast we were not able to eat dinner afterwards there was enough food to satisfy all! Everything was delicious the venues we stopped at we’re friendly and welcoming. I would definitely do this tour again! Our tour guide Julia was wonderful.

Great way to taste the city while learning about Savanah's history

The food tour was so fun. We loved learning about the history of Savanah from our great energetic tour guide, Victoria. We learned a lot about the different squares, streets, and establishments we visited. The food was delicious as well! It was so great to try things I normally perhaps would over look on the menu. Victoria was a great guide and we did not feel rushed but had adequate time to eat each meal, rest inside in the AC (savannah can get hot!) and chat with the other members in the group. I would suggest going on the tour at the beginning of your trip so the rest of your trip you can go off the recommendations given or use the coupons given. It's a great way to learn about the city!

Don't waste your money and time

This was not a good tour. Not worth our time or money. Aaron our tour guide is really enamored with himself and told all of us he loves hearing himself talk. He is not meant to be a tour guide.. He did not have control of the time or the group. The tour went on way too long and had to consistently wait for others while they were shopping to go to the next stop. We regret going on this tour. Please do not waste your money and valuable time on this tour. This Beautiful city has other tours that we believe give you your money's worth.

Thank you for your feedback. This is obviously not the tour we aim to provide and wished you would have called us directly to let us know of this poor experience so that we could have done something about it in real time. We do appreciate you letting us know about this guide and we will take the appropriate steps to make sure the experience you had is not repeated. We hope all our potential future guests will see our reviews as a whole and where there have been negative experiences, we have made corrections to ensure a consistently great tour product for the past 10 years. We hope we get to prove to you just how great and deliciously fun our tours are in the future.

Brenden was our tour guide and he was so full of life and had so much energy which helped to make the tour fun! He was very knowledgeable about the food and the history of Savannah. All of the good was really good and will fill you up. I suggest not eating before you come or if you do eat light. The shrimp and grits were my most favorite dish. I highly recommend this tour.
