Excellent tour! The tour was thoughtfully planned and flawlessly executed. Our guide, Brandon was humorous and knowledgeable. We walked to various restaurants and pubs while sampling their fare and learning the history of the area along the way. You could that each of the merchants valued the Viator tour group and put on their best presentation for our group.

Country was a wonderful guide - very entertaining and knowledgable. All of the food was delicious and I especially enjoyed the variety of offerings. By the end of the first five courses, we were quite full! The salt and honey tastings were a delightful way to end the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to a friend.

We had a great time with Country as our guide. We had a small group 3 people which seemed to improve communication with each other. The food, at the scheduled locations, was excellent and Country's happy disposition and knowledge were great. Recommend this tour to anyone headed to Savannah.

Country was our guide and made the tour a blast. Her knowledge of the area and willingness to answer any question thrown her way waste notch. We didn't expect the food to be as delicious as it was. This was definitely a highlight on our trip.Would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

This food tour was fantastic! I'm a foodie and there were at least 3 items that made it all worth it!! The tour guide was very funny and entertaining and it wasn't a big walking tour. This tour is more about the food. We went to The Bee Company, which was so interesting and had to partake in the Mead tasting - wine made from honey. It was fantastic! My husband was RAVING about the gator sliders the rest of our trip.. and he's right, they were killer!!

Great tour! Charlotte was very informative and knowledgeable not only about the food but about the city in general. The food was delish on every single stop on the tour! Well worth the money.
