This was the highlight of our trip. Very informative, fun, and great food. Our whole family went together. It was entertaining for my three girls ages 15, 13, and 11. In fact, my 15 year old said it was awesome.

This was a great tour. The guide was very personable and knowledgeable. Not only did we get to taste some great food at places we would never have found on our own, but learned a lot and had a great time. I highly recommend it.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

This tour was good but not great. However, there was significantly more history discussed on this tour than other food tours I have taken in the past.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2014

I think this tour needs some constructive criticism. The tour guide was a very affable gent and gave us many interesting facts about Savannah but I have been on other food tours and the food part of this tour was sorely lacking. I expect food tours to be designed to showcase regional specialties and the Lowcountry has many of those. I thought we might sample seafood, particularly shrimp and grits or crab, maybe even she crab soup. Savannah has its own honey company and instead of visiting a local business, we want to an olive oil and balsamic vinegar store - every town of any size has one of these stores so it was nothing special or specific to Savannah. Perhaps we could have had a dish that showcased okra or maybe some of the creole-cajun influences in the region. Instead we had a hamburger at one location and not a very good one and we went to an herb store. The highlight of the tour was Leopold's as it is a local and world class ice cream shop (although the portion size there was barely visible to the human eye). Paula Dean's was a major disappointment. No one from the restaurant talked to us or welcomed us and we got one small sample from the buffet. Other food tours we have been on have given us a normal portion of each item and highlighted the region they were located in. Also, many of the restaurant managers gave us a little talk about the food and how it is part of the food scene in their region. We experienced none of this on our Savannah Food Tour.
