“Meh..”
Review of Foody Tours - CLOSED

Foody Tours
Cuisines: American
Description: Fun tasting walk or ride on/get off tour. Phone 912-234-3440. Had a super guide, and great samplings at 7 different restaurants. Would highly recommend it as a "must do", but only use the phone # listed - the one on line was a mess.

Sounds like my wife and I took the same tour to the same places as the reviewer above. However, the food samples were a little underwhelming. The barbecue hole in the wall offered a small paper cup of shredded beef, which was average at most. The bread pudding was okay, but nothing to write home about. Our first stop was to a bakery that offered little squares of bread to be dipped in two kinds of sauces. Not impressed. We then took leftover bread to a place where they were sampling flavored oils. Not my kind of thing, but my wife bought a chocolate flavored oil to take home. We also stopped at Lady and sons for a small sample of one kind of food to be placed in a cup. We were told not to take more than one sample or the Paula Deen food police would stop you. They did watch our party carefully. There was no where to eat so we exited the store and ate at a nearby park. We lastly stopped at the Wright Square Cafe, where they gave us a chocolate covered pretzel and a truffle. Wow. The best part of the tour was being led by Lawrence, who knowledgeably led us through the streets of old Savannah. The tour cost us $86.00. Save your money and get a great dinner at the Pirates House instead.

At dinner one night, the ladies at the table next to us asked if we had done the "Foodie Tour", which we honestly hadn't heard of. We had a little difficulty tracking them down, but it was well worth the effort. With a wonderful walking guide (Chrissy) we went to 7 different food establishments for samples of a wide variety of food - from fantastic barbeque at a hole-in-the-wall place, to the best bread pudding we've ever tasted, and even a quick one-item-off-the-buffet fly though at "The Lady and Sons". Our walking guide was a native of Savannah and knew all sorts of wonderful stories and history. The entire experience lasted about 2 1/2 hours, and we (4 of us) loved every minute of it. Be sure to add "Foody Tours" to your Savannah itinerary - you won't be sorry :)
