I really enjoyed this low-key food and historical tour with Cindy. It started off with honey tasting at an adorable shop and then moved on to food, drinks and stories of Savannah. Everything was delicious! This isn’t a fancy chefy/foodie tour, which some may expect, but it does introduce you to some places that tourists would most likely overlook like amazing sandwiches at Zunzi’s. When I’m back in Savannah, I can’t wait to have a full meal at farm-to-table Cha Bella. Also, be sure to come on an empty stomach and enjoy a cocktail or two while you walk through the squares.

Way over priced.

Way overpriced for what you got. Each place but one had less than a couple of dollars invested in the food. Very hot and had to ask for water at most places because they expected you to purchase their drinks. First place was honey tasting and a piece of cheese and 15% off any honey purchase. Really?

So disappointed when comparing this tour to others I’ve enjoyed.

Picture advertising this tour is unethical…because it’s nothing like what we experienced. Unexpected mandatory 30 minutes sales pitch to buy honey constitutes your first stop. Most of the food stops had food that was an afterthought - prepared way ahead of time or overdone - served outside (without care) or in a dark basement of the restaurant with no explanation of the food. Our ice cream experience was basically the group standing on a sidewalk, across the street, while the guide gave us school size pre-packaged ice cream pod which we ate standing there while people walked around us. So disappointing if you’ve ever been on a really good food tour. oh and they take you all the way back to the honey store to end the trip, a trek. I would not recommend this tour at all.

Thank you for your feedback. We hope you will take an opportunity to reach out to us directly as there are many questions we have about your review as much of it does not correlate to the experience we have designed. There should have been no basements and the only outside dining should have been at restaurants with incredible outside dining spaces. We hope you continue to seek out deliciously fun food tours everywhere you travel.
