The food was tasty. The tour guide was very informative. The ice cream at the end hit the spot, as it was a hot day.

Shannon was fun and spirited. We really enjoyed ourselves. We were a party of 8 with one small child and one adult age 81. Everyone had a great time.
Steamy but enjoyable!

Despite the heat and on and off rain, Bailey made the tour super fun and entertaining! Loved her humor! Her pace throughout was great! She kept things moving yet gave us time to look around and shop if we wanted too.b
Look for a different food tour

It rained the whole time but 2of the 6 stops were good. Didn’t care for honey tasting, also thought the Parker stop was bad
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thanks for your feedback. Sorry we couldn't control the weather for you.
Delicious food.
Marlene_F, Jul 2023
We enjoyed the tour. Food was fabulous and plenty of it. Tour guide was a little much. She was knowledgable about the local area but got to be a little much with constantly talking about herself.
Good, not great
Carolyn_H, Jul 2023
Our guide Cindy was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable, super friendly, and very energetic about everything. All around, excellent tour guide. Kudos to Cindy! We enjoyed the historical info and general information & recs about Savannah. My mediocre rating is for the food. All of it was good, but nothing stood out as amazing or anything I’d rush back to eat again. The honey store was amazing though! The food was very diverse (one African-ish, 2 Mexican) but not “local delicacies” other than the fried pork chop, which was just ok. Unfortunately, I’ve been on much better food tours.
Culinary treats with some history.
Sandycatlin_W, Jul 2023
Josh was a great guide. Kept things going, and had interesting historical banter. The food was so-so. There was an interesting blend of cultures, but fried chicken, may have been tastier than a pork chop. Did a honey tasting at the end and topped it off with rich, creamy butter pecan ice cream at near 90 degrees and similar humidity. A crisp lighter flavor might have been more palatable (know was going for Georgia culture.. but peach sorbet would have hit both the light and culture too) overall very nice experience. Part of us left hungry still
Different but worth it!
Marianne_J, Jul 2023
Different and fun experience. Loved tasting a bit of history and learning a bit about the city. Great guide.
Great time! Great food!
Lisa_A, Jul 2023
Shannon is an excellent guide. Knowledgeable and charming. The food was excellent and indeed unexpected. Be sure to skip breakfast!
Great food and a great time!

We had such an awesome time today with Country on our food tour. She was the best tour guide we have ever had. Funny and sassy and super knowledgeable about everything we ate and everywhere we went. The food was top notch and the variety was great! I am not a seafood lover and was worried this would be all seafood but everything was land based and delicious. Some was super surprising, including the gas station pork chops! I highly recommend this tour. Ask for Country as your tour guide!
