We loved Country! You would think she was Ms. Savannah with all that charm. She knew a lot about the city, the food, and the community. She made us feel very welcome and made sure our bellies were full. You have the option to indicate if you were vegetarian/gluten free/whatever food issues preferences you may have, but it looked like one person in our group forgot to do that, but that was no obstacle for Country! She found alternatives for him. I will warn you, this is not a diet friendly tour. It is heavy on the carbs. The good thing is that you walk a lot, so you get to make room for even more food.

This culinary view of some of Savannah's food finds was great even on one of the hottest days. Our guide, Country, had a sense of fun and fact that added to the experience and she did everything she could to help keep us cool during this 2 hour walk.
We had a wonderful time with our guide, Country. The food was spectacular and her knowledge of the city and it's history was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour.
The tour was very informative and fun. We had a small group which made it that much more intimate and allowed for more interesting conversations with the tour guide. Savannah is a beautful place and I will return again to continue to investigate all of the little restauraunts and bars off the beaten path.
Great tour guide and great food. Loved it.
This tour is fantastic and not to be missed! This tour took us to places we never would have known about...and ones we really wouldn't have been able to find on our own. I cannot recommend this one enough!
Country was AMAZING! We booked this last minute and she was able to make arrangements for my food allergies. Great food, information, best of all guide!
Highly recommend this food tour. We've never done a food tour before and we really enjoyed it. Lisa was an awesome tour guide! All the food was so good and we enjoyed a margarita at 17hundred90 Inn that was recommended by our tour guide. Great experience and would do it again.
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.
