There is a lot of planning that goes into a tour and a lot of different people/stores/restaurants that have be coordinated with so that fresh tasty food will be ready at the right time to optimize everyone’s enjoyment. As a result, Savannah Taste Experience has a difficult time handling a lot of last minute changes and alterations to agreed upon logistics.
All private group food tours are 3 hours in length and cannot be shortened. Private group tours are the exact same experiences as the Public Tours only in a private setting. Why? Because we know our food tour that we provide to the public is nothing short of fantastic and because after all of the tinkering around with flavors, portion sizes, and locations we know we will be providing your group the best experience if we do it our way.
Private Group Tours must be a MINIMUM OF 10 PEOPLE.
Groups larger than 16 people will be split into smaller groups and staggered 30 minutes apart in order to optimize the experience of the guests and ensure that food orders are well controlled.
Weekend private tours are more difficult to book than Weekday private tours.

Private Group Food Tours are held rain or shine.
