Average food tour
Kathy_H, Sep 2022
Enjoyed the history and the biscuit and honey stops. The others were not to my tastes. I feel the daiquiri should not have been one of the stops because that was not food and was such a small sample. The history shared was interesting, but there was a lot of downtime and waiting around while the previous tour finished or others ordered cocktails.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for your feedback. We are currently working on cleaning up some of the timing issues as well as improving two of the tastings. Those changes should go in to play next week. We hope we get the chance to show you the improvements and get you on another deliciously fun food tour.

Terribly disappointed
Angie_B, Sep 2022
The guide was good but the food terribly disappointing. In fact, awful. Your pictures on your site and what was served did not match up at all. I’ve been on multiple food tours in many states so I knew what I should expect. This did not measure up at all.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for your feedback. It would have been nice to hear from you directly so we could have a better understanding of how things "did not measure up", instead of this anonymous review. We do have four distinct food tours with different food options so it is hard to know which "pictures" you are referring to that didn't "match up." Nevertheless, we are always looking to improve and will take your thoughts into account in making future updates.
Take this tour!

Worth Taking A tour with Meagan
Theresa_W, Sep 2022
Meagan was our guide and full of knowledge, energy, professionalism, and friendly. It was interesting tasting each item at the different places we went. Fried green tomato biscuit was good and I would not have had it if it were not want we were tasting.
This tour is a must
Ashley_W, Sep 2022
Cathy did such an amazing job explaining the history of Savannah while making the tour a super fun experience. The food was all amazing! Especially the Empanada’s and the biscuit that had fried green tomato and pimento cheese! Such a great time!

Tour Great-Food okay at best
Gabriel_H, Sep 2022
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. Fun tour. I’ve done only 2 other foodie tours and this food experience was not very good. The Shrimp and Grits were excellent. The biscuit was okay. The sausage biscuit was not very good. The meatball was very good and then a little shot of liquor and honey should not be considered a course.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for your feedback. We are always tweaking our tastings to make sure we are providing the best possible Taste Experience we can. While we do not advertise each stop as a "course", we certainly understand that we need to do better to meet expectations on the two stops you mentioned. We hope to have you back in Savannah in the future to see the improvements we've made. Thanks again!
Great Tour for all ages!
Julie_W, Sep 2022
Awesome tour! Cathy was great and very knowledgeable of the area! We learned a lot of history and had a lot of fun! The food and drink choices were very good! Highly recommend!
