This was such a great experience. Amy was an Amazing guide. I traveled Solo and was hesitant to sign up but it was one of the highlights of my trip. Met some great people who were part of the tour. The food venues were fantastic and the added history of Savannah rounded out the experience. I would recommend to anyone and would probably do again.
