Cindy, our guide, was very good. Knowledgeable, pleasant and had great energy. She managed the group well. The first half of the your was fantastic but the quality of the food experience lessened in the second half.

The tour guide was wonderfully funny and informative but the restaurant choices were very average. It could be because of Covid, but we hoped for a better representation of the best of Savannah’s restaurants

This food tour was such a great experience!! My husband and I were visiting Savannah for our 3rd wedding anniversary and this was a perfect addition to our trip. Our guide was one of the owners and he was great at telling us history of the town and just being overall personable. If you’re not sure what to do, definitely check this out.
