Great tour led by Maria! Wonderful local food at places I'd never find on my own. Plus an insightful dialogue on the history of Savannah as we strolled between stops. All in all a wonderful day.

This was a great tour. Not only delicious food but the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the restaurants and city. You will end the tour hungry. I was almost too full to eat dessert at the last stop. Well worth the money.

I would recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning about some of the local eateries not frequented by tourists in the historic district. The walking is not strenuous, and there is time to sit and cool down in each establishment. All of the spots had excellent food, too!

This tour was beyond our expectations. Country our guide brought so much extra to the tour, she was entertaining while being very knowledgeable about Savannah and it's history. Stops on this tour were out of the way small places which just brought so much more then a general tour of restaurants that are already well known. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a fun tour with great food sampling.

Far better than tours of national chain restaurants we have taken in other cities. Having the local favorites arranged for us was much more interesting, especially when coupled with our tour guide's knowledge of Savannah history. Food was great, and the total experience even better!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

We loved the off the main path restaurants. Wall St BBQ was incredible and we would NEVER have found it on our own. Maria was a great guide who not only new food but history. I would probably not do the tour in summer. While Maria tried to keep us in the shade as much as possible it was still hot. A fun day.
