This was so much fun, yummy & informative the entire time. I've been to Savannah dozens of times; I'm an Atlanta native so this is frequently a vacation location (just 4 hour drive). This might be the most fun tour I've done so far. Can't wait to try the East Side tour next time I'm in town. Thanks again, Charlotte!

Savannah Taste experience offers 2 tours, the Four Squares Walking Food tour for $45.00 and the Famous and Secret East Side tour for $54. We opted for the more savory Famous & Secret East Side tour. We met up with our tour guide Irene at the infamous Pirate house where we were treated to their appetizing Fried Chicken drizzled in pecans and honey. One word...WOWZER! This was so crispy and succulent, we could have stayed there. They served up cocktails and soda as well as glasses of water. Though Country's Iced Tea (Long Island with a southern twist) sounded yummy, I had the Release the Kracken, a perfect blend of liquors, juice and a splash of coke for coloring. Country and Irene gave us the history of the Pirate House complete with notorious shang-hais and ghosts and the adjoining Herb House. I was time to head and Country made sure we knew we didn't have to down our drinks as you don't have to "brown bag it". As we walked through the City of Savannah, Irene, a transplant from Boston, was full of information about the various buildings and squares we passed. Next, we stopped in a very little known, and quite off the beaten path called Walls Bar-B-Que. It's nestled in an alleyway and has a very limited opening. The place is known to locals and students. Here we got to taste the pulled pork and it was so good, you didn't need the sauce! Two were offered, a more mustard and a spicy. We didn't think the spicy was all that, well, spicy but it was good. Irene gave us the history of the street layout, alleys, and building restoration. Just quickly we had delicious salmon crustini ( I liked he crustini best), Asian fusion shrimp skewers (were very accommodating to those in our group of 6 who were allergic to the shrimp, replacing it with chicken, papillote chicken sandwich (as seen on Man vs. Food) which we ate in one of the squares and then down to River Street where the tour ended with a visit to Savannah's Pralines, a candy shop for Savannah's favorite pralines. We also got to watch them make this sweet, savory treat and witness them pulling taffy. It was a hot day and Irene made sure that we stayed hydrated. She was entertaining and informative. As first time visitors to the city, highlights were that we learned a lot of the history of Savannah as well as of its notoriety. Savannah Taste experience walking tour was definitely money and time will spent.

We met the lovely, incredibly knowledgeable New York transplant Charlotte at Bernies Oyster House, and our 2-3 hour fun, informative and tasty tour began. Though not a native, Savannah is in Ms. Charlotte's blood as was evident by the warm greetings of each locally owned establishment visited.
Not only did we taste the cuisine of Savannah, but we were additionally treated to a savory salt store, The Salt Table, for seasoned samplings ground and mixed right on the premises. At Savannah Bee Co. we spooned in delectably sweet honeys from faithful Savannah bees and their cousins far away, while learning fascinating tidbits about the care and keeping of these pollinating wonders.
Each stop was strategically organized to enhance and build upon the previous flavors already enjoyed. And when the tour was over, the shopkeepers gladly discounted our purchases.

My wife and I had a great time exploring the city with our tour guide Irene and a small group of eight. We vistied some famous restaurants and also some not so famous but soon to be famous restaurants. The food samples were great at each location and our guide, Irene, did a great job of sharing the history of the city. She was very knowledgable about each restaurant and she also made the history come alive. We definately would reccommend the trip to anyone who wants to learn about great places to eat in addition to the colorful history of the city. Ask for Irene, she was great!

We arrived in Savannah without an agenda. My husband found the tours on Tripadvisor and booked one for our family of four. (First squares walking food tour) It was great; Stu was a wonderful tour guide. My teenage girls tried new foods and enjoyed all the history as well. The walking was not too much for us....and we enjoyed each of our stops. We did go back and visit a few of our new 'finds' while still in Savannah.
