Wonderful tour. we visited many restaurants that we would never had even heard of on this tour. we were with a cousin from Toronto, Canada, who is a real foodie and my mother, who cannot walk long distances. The bus tour worked great for us in allowing us to see so much of Savannah that we would not otherwise have seen on a day trip. Also, my mom was able to join us since the tour was on a bus, as she would not have been able to go if we did a walking food tour.

We had a great time and were able to see several places that we wanted to go to but had very limited time. Our guide was interesting and helpful.

Gary was a fantastic host. A life-long Savannah resident he gave great background on all the restaurants as well as the other landmarks we passed.
The locations and food were terrific. The tour starts out with a appetizer type of food and goes through a multi course meal as you stop at the additional locations, ending with a really nice candy / desert shop.
I really felt well fed at the end of the tour. We were warmly created at all the stops by the restaurant staff.

I highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed our food tour of Savannah. Gary was very knowledgeable and entertaining. This trip was our first to Savannah, and we only spent one day on our way to Florida. My husband and I would love to go back again. The restaurants we visited were diverse and we thought the food, although only samples, was ample. We were so full we didn't eat dinner.
