We had Sally (see picture) as our tour guide and she was the best. She was so much fun and had everyone laughing and having a good time. She has a special way of telling her stories you can’t help but have a good time. The food was great too. By the time we were done we didn’t need lunch.

Everyone was super nice- and a great way to enjoy a Savannah tour in the heat of summer as the restaurants were air conditioned. Could use more variety in the food- more low country specials would be good. Less meat pie. Wonderful guides!

Great tour! Read this if you have mobility issues.
Candace_W
, Jul 2022
We had a great time! I learned so much history! I would definitely recommend. Sally Kick, our guide, was energetic and a lot of fun. My 81 year-old mom is in a mobility scooter. Downtown Savannah is not great for folks in a mobility scooter or wheelchair, but Sally adjusted the route to make navigation easier and was thoughtful throughout the tour. There was only one stop that was not accessible. I searched the reviews for a review from someone with mobility issues before we booked, but couldn’t find any. So, if you are looking for an opinion…it is doable, BUT you need to be sure and bring someone with you to assist. The sidewalks have uneven drop-offs and they are not maintained. We did fine, as I assisted my mom. A wheelchair will do better than a mobility scooter.

We went with me, my wife and 2 older teen boys. This was a great tour and the best way to spend a few hours in Savannah.

Excellent tour guide, great shrimp and grits… the rest was mediocre, mostly bar food style. Had hoped for a wider variety/higher quality of food tasting.

Megan was absolutely amazing! She has a great bubbly personality, very knowledgeable about the food and Savannah. It didn’t feel like a tour it felt more like friends going from restaurant to restaurant. When I go back, I’ll defiantly be booking the tour again! Thank you Megan for a fabulous time!
