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, Savor Seattle’s Tour Operations relaunched this Spring.

We proudly tote pink umbrellas

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.

We are Heather and Matt and we adore cuisine and community.

Between the two of us, we share a combined 25 years of experience in the Seattle Tourism Industry, along with a deep passion and love of food. Our tours will elevate you beyond "foodie". We aim to make you sure you savor all that our region has to offer.

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.
