Savannah Taste Experience Tour

Sold Out!

Taste your way from the savory riverfront through some delicious bites on the original squares of historic downtown Savannah as we guide your taste buds to the rich, diverse, and delectable culinary identity of this beautiful lowcountry city through six unique specialty food stores, local restaurants and authentic eateries.

Savannah Taste Experience was founded by two brothers, Stu and Donald Card, for their love of the Hostess City and the delicious diverse food that pep up the smiles of the residents of this great foodie city. Savannah’s long rich history, beautiful architecture, amazing people, and unique lowcountry-speed-of-life inspired brothers to make the decision to open a tour for foodies in Savannah. The difficulty came during the Card brothers’ research phase as they undertook the daunting task of narrowing down the vast, colorful, and mouthwatering flavors of Savannah to something that can be enjoyed in just one afternoon. From lowcountry favorites like shrimp ’n grits to a one-of-a-kind honey store to world-famous ice cream to the last remaining restaurant serving Scottish cuisine, the task of finding the right balance of these amazing culinary delights took months of painstaking evaluation and analysis.

Tour guides of Savannah Taste Experience demonstrate the same pride and passion of the Card brothers through their courteous, exciting, and knowledgeable presentation of this culinary exploration.

Our tour includes all food tastings (Enough for lunch. Dietary restrictions are accommodated.), fun and exploration. This is a walking tour and participants can expect to be standing or walking at a moderate pace for almost 1.5 miles. Comfortable footwear is required (athletic/tennis shoes OK, slacks/jeans would be appropriate).
