    Meghan was very kind and informative. The food stops were so welcoming and served the perfect amount of food that we didn't walk away too full. The highlights were the shrimp and grits, the prohibition museum, the savannah bee company, and the sausage roll. That's pretty much the entire tour! I would recommend it to anyone and go again myself.

    My daughter and I decided to take the food tour because we were only staying in Savanah for one day. It was an excellent choice. Our guide (Julie) was a former teacher and did a wonderful job as historian and hostess! It was so fun to try some foods and places in Savanah that we probably wouldn't have tried and get a little history at the same time. We were also fortunate to have a great group of people on the tour. So much fun! We are so glad we did it!

    What a great time! Shannon was our guide and she did an excellent job keeping us entertained with little stories of Savannah’s history as well as the history of the 6 places we were sampling. It was blazing hot and she was very thoughtful to make sure we in the shade and a breeze whenever we stopped for a little history lesson. The samplings we had were generous and delicious-be prepared to have a late dinner that night!
