Savannah Historic District
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. A non-alcoholic beverage sampling is included, and you can purchase additional alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (own expense) if you wish. You'll find your many food tastings add up to a fulfilling lunch.

Good Food, history summary and COVID practices need improvement
Precious_G

The food was excellent. The guide was friendly. During the history portion of the tour I learned about how the Scottish, English, Jewish, and German communities came to live and contributed to Savannah. She also spoke of Eli Whitney and the invention of the cotton gin but no mention of slavery or the role African-Americans played in the history of Savannah. The tour was given during the pandemic. Measures were not taken to eat meals outdoors or seat participants at least 6 feet apart.

Thank you for your feedback. We have done hundreds of tours for thousands of guests since returning from lockdown and have worked tirelessly to improve ways to still be able to provide food tours in these most difficult of times SAFELY. While we assure you measures were most definitely taken to ensure the safety of our guests and to keep 6 feet apart whenever possible, we regret that you witnessed a moment where that wasn't the case. As our guides are instructed to state at the beginning of every tour - we ask each of our guests to speak up when they see something that makes them uncomfortable or might be considered unsafe so that we can address it at the moment. The fact that this apparently was not done in your case is highly regrettable and we apologize. We will continue to work with our team of highly-trained guides to make sure we are being as safe as possible. Thank you again. Cheers, Stu C. Owner, Savannah Taste Experience

Very good tour and highly recommend for first time visitors to Savannah. We took this tour on the last day of our stay and wished we had done it earlier. The weather was rainy nd made the walking parts of the tour somewhat uncomfortable but not the fault of the tour guide or tour company. Our guide was Knowledgeable and entertaining.
