Eric was a very entertaining guide on our food tour. You can tell he loves to take tourists around and experience good food. He was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations for places to eat. We loved our dinner at the Pink Door and we loved the wine at the Tasting Room across the street. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Dawn & Bob Schlich, St. Simons Island, Ga.

We had a great time with our guide Will who escorted us to several restaurants, shops in the market, and chocolate shops to taste a variety of really good food. It was really fun.

Awesome experience. My boyfriend and I weren’t able to find the meeting point at first. Rod was kind of to reschedule us and volunteered to do the food tour for us.

This was a wonderful tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area. the sampling of the food was very good.

The tour was great! They take you to great local food spots. Lots of delicious food!
