Guide was very knowledgeable. Interesting way to see historic Savannah and get to try restaurants you may never otherwise have the chance to.

So glad we did this! There was a 'food orientation' to the tour, but certainly got some history and cultural background, as well. Great assortment of restaurants and cuisines with a friendly and knowledgeable guide Lauren. Definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed seeing a part of Savannah that wasn't on any other tour we went on. The food was varied and the walk was informative. There was even a mix-up with someone's reservations and it was handled easily with no fuss and they even handled my restricted food diet with advance notice. Of the 5 tours we went on this was definitely number one.

Our tour guide, Charlotte, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She paced the tour just right, and could answer all kinds of questions. The food on the tour was delicious and very varied. I thought the portions would be tiny, but they were huge! All the restaurants on the tour were very welcoming, as well. I would highly recommend this tour!
