Savannah Taste Experience offers an ideal way to experience the Hostess City.
Savannah Taste Experience is the only company in nearby Savannah that focuses solely on culinary tours and experiences. Guests can enjoy their inner epicurean, recently named the Top Tourist Attraction in Georgia by Redbookmagazine. This taste experience provides the opportunity to learn about the city’s incredible history and to sample award-winning dishes.
“Our food tours give visitors and locals alike a real taste of Savannah’s food culture,” says co-founder Donald Card.
“Our tour guides help tie the tastings to the culture and history of the city.”
Savannah’s cuisine is, in many ways, a reflection of its remarkable history. From the failure of Trustees’ Garden during the colonial period to the influence of Scottish Highlanders, Austria-Germany refugees and Gullah and Geechee residents, the city’s culinary heritage is rich and storied.
Featured on the Travel Channel, Savannah Taste Experience offers a range of culinary experiences.
The First Squares Food Tour, invites guests sample delicious items from six distinctive foodie spots surrounding Savannah’s initial squares. Guests can explore the Historic District, while learning about the city’s food, restaurants, history and culture.
The Famous & Secret East Side Food Tour features a laid-back stroll through the residential area of Savannah’s Landmark District, sharing hidden spots, famous haunts and secret tastes.
The Southern Fried Expectations Food Tour is the company’s newest offering. It explores the origins of the South’s most iconic foods, from fried chicken to barbecue and sweet tea. This abbreviated food tour includes a handful of stops, and features some of the area’s most popular regional dishes.
“What makes our food tours so special is that we get the opportunity to experience the city utilizing all of our senses,” Card explains, adding that the company’s tours are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. “Not only will our highly trained, passionate guides weave tales of this storied city and how it came to be, but guests will also capture that history in a way that is both more compelling and lasting.”
In addition to food tours, they also offer Micro Food Fests®.
These are unique culinary events for large groups. Perfect for parties of 125 guests+, the Fest visits more than nine local restaurants. It also offers live music and locally-crafted cocktails.
“Everything is curated, from the venue to the food to the music, presenting a true taste of Savannah,” Card explains.
From food tours to fully catered events, Savannah Taste Experience is committed to providing unique, five-star culinary experiences for locals and residents alike. The ultimate goal, Card says, is for guests to leave with “a better understanding of Savannah’s food, culture and history, and with a smile on their face and a satisfied feeling in their belly.”
