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!

Great time with Andrew. Seeing Savannah of the e-bike was easy. We covered quite a bit of ground, but had frequent stops to see and visit about homes and events that made Savannah what it is today. I would strongly recommend booking with these folks.

Our tour guide Victoria was excellent! Super friendly and knowledgeable! The food was really good also! Highly recommend!

Great way to learn about the history of the city of Savannah with a little bit of a twist!

Great food tour. Starting at the honey place at first seemed strange but it was great.
