Meet your small group in Savannah's beautiful Historic Downtown to begin your savory and sweet journey through the flavors of this lowcountry city. Learn about Savannah's long and colorful history, grand architecture and easygoing way of life from your informative local guide as you make your way through the city's four original squares and along its scenic waterfront. Along your route, visit several different restaurants and food shops to sample a wide array of local specialties such as shrimp and grits, pork belly donut slides, Scottish and English cuisine (a nod to our city's founders) and one-of-a-kind honey. (Tastings subject to change without notice). Establishments you visit may include Savannah Bee Company, Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pub, 22 Square Restaurant, and Pie Society.

Food tours are one of the best ways to have fun and learn about a new city. Our guide Anne was very knowledgeable and shared wonderful details of Savannah and the food we tasted. We stopped at 6 locations and the food was wonderful.

Josh was a great guide. I unfortunately agree with the reviews that the food was sub-par at best. I met great people and saw a bit of Savannah and that was nice.

Joshua our guide was very good, but we were disappointed with the quality of the food and drinks. Joshua was excellent as far as explanation of the history of the different areas we went to, but having been on previous tours like this, we expected better quality or quantity for the price.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thank you for giving our food tour a shot during the Pandemic. We are proud of our food from our city and our restaurants, but we understand that perhaps some of the changes we needed to make to some of the tastings and locations due to massive staffing concerns across the food & beverage industry in Savannah (and the globe) as a result of pandemic may not have been to your liking. We are working tirelessly to keep our restaurant industry going in this toughest of times and appreciate the opportunity to learn from your feedback. I hope you continue to enjoy food tours in the future and that you give us a chance to compare our non-pandemic era food tour with the others you have taken in the past.
