    Even though we have visited Savannah many times through the years, this tour showed us places that we had not yet visited and gave us great info on the chefs and origins of the food and restaurants. Learning these things from someone who is a chef gives the info a lot more weight in my opinion. We enjoyed the laid back pace and that each of the places we visited were ready for our group when we arrived.

    I enjoyed the food tour. our guide gave us some history as we walked around Savannah. The food was excellent and we went to places that we will definitely try again. The only negative thing that I can say is that the weather was in the high 90's and the wind was even blowing hot. So that was a bit difficult and of course has nothing to do with the tour itself. I did this tour with my entire family of 7 and they all enjoyed it. I love it and would do it again.

    Ann was a wonderful tour guide. Very entertaining and knowledgeable. The food was good, however, I would have liked restaurants that served food that was more unique to the area. The empanada was good, but that's something I can get anywhere. Also, portions were very small. One of the stops was for honey tasting which I wasn't very excited about.
