    Our guide was great, she was so sweet and made sure we all had a great time. We sampled shrimp and grits, sausage rolls with a flakey crust, shepherds pie, deviled egg, pimento cheese sandwich, picked veggies, boiled peanuts, Mac and cheese with a sweet amber sauce and a special drink called a Chatham Artillery Punch dating neck to the 1700’s. We ended at the Savannah Bee Company and tasted different kinds of honey and an apple slice with cheese and honey comb on top. You MUST go, it was a great time!!!!!

    Our guide Cathy was excellent, friendly, and well-versed. Grits were cold on the first stop (shrimp and grits) but still very good. At some times we were made to “scrunch in” with other travelers, which I find a bit risqué still somewhere in this pandemic. There should have been more acknowledgment of social distancing. Otherwise, very enjoyable. Cathy was great!

    Anne was a great guide. The tour was a perfect introduction to Savannah and the historic district. We enjoyed going to restaurants that we otherwise likely would have overlooked. While all of the food was good, there were a few things that were outstanding and a few things that were not as interesting (but not bad...). We even went back to a few of the spots later that afternoon! We are looking forward to going on another tour the next time we visit Savannah!
