Begin your culinary tour of Charleston’s Upper King Street when you meet your guide and your group at HoM, a trendy restaurant that’s easy to find. Then, follow your guide to a handful of restaurants that are changing Charleston's culinary scene.

At each stop, sit and enjoy samples of specialty foods. You might try twists on classic bar grub, high-brow French cuisine, or traditional South Carolina barbecue done right. Every tour is different though, in keeping up with Charleston dining trends.

Throughout the tour, your guide points out Charleston landmarks and sheds light on how this newly revitalized part of the city has become a culinary hot spot.

Your tour ends on a sweet note with a dessert tasting within walking distance of your starting point.
