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.

We met Charlotte our tour guide at Rocks on the River. We had 13 in our tour. While we enjoyed our She-Crab soup Charlotte gave us interesting tidbits about the start of Savannah. From there we headed to Tondee's for Shrimp and Grits. Then on to B and D Burger's for Gator Slider's. Very interesting, taste's like tuna. We then visited Molly McPherson's for Cottage Pie, very cute Pub makes you think you are in Scotland. For dessert we stopped at Mabel's Cupcakes, yum!! We continued our tour all the while with Charlotte giving us history about Savannah and comedy. We stopped in The Salt Table for great flavor's and finished at the Savannah Bee Company where we learned about the different bee's and different types of Honey depending on where it comes from. Very interesting tour. Ton's of fun. I look forward to doing these type's of tours in more cities. Don't miss it. It was the best!!

The food was fantastic and consisted of things that I wouldn't normally order for myself, which was great for expanding horizons. The history included along with the tour was much appreciated. This was a great way to see the city.
