About Us

The Savor Story

 Savor Seattle was founded in 2007 as the first food tour company within the Pike Place Market Community. For 13 years, Savor grew to become the premiere culinary walking tour company in Seattle. Sadly, in March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the shut-down of tour operations. With the hope that Savor might continue to bring our guests amazing Seattle food experiences, we pivoted to curated food boxes sent to the customer’s home. While our business model evolved, this allowed us to maintain our mission and commitment to the community we love.


Today, Savor Seattle is operated by former tour guides and managers Heather Refvem and Matthew Bentley. With a new and expansive vision, plans are underway to relaunch Savor Seattle Tours this Spring. Our 25 years of combined experience in the tourism industry and our dedication as members of the Pike Place Market community has us feeling confident and excited to ask our guests to once again… #followthepinkumbrella

Seattle has a reputation for being a rainy place, even though we receive less rainfall annually than cities like New York City and Houston. A bit tongue in cheek, we subtly poke fun at this perception by creating an iconic beacon for all Savor Seattle tours.

My name is Angela Shen and I am food-obsessed.

I grew up in a restaurant family and have always loved the joy that sharing good food brings. In the Fall of 2006, I moved to Seattle sight unseen. I surprised everyone (including myself!) by starting a tourism business in a city I was so recently a transplant in.

Our Mission

The best memories are created when people engage together in the common language of food. We transform moments of unexpected discovery into life-long joy.
