Excellent choices of restaurants. When signing up for the tour, thought we would be having more conversation with the chefs at each location. Mostly received historical information from the tour guide and not so much about the food and it's preparation. When arrangements at each location were in rectangle tables, hearing was difficult at best. Actually could hear better once... More

This culinary tour is FUN, informative & delicious. It's like a mobile walking party in a lovely and fun city. Our guide, Charlie, was terrific and a well informed young lady. I would highly recommend this experience to others.

The Charleston downtown culinary tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Glenn, provided great local information about the restaurants that we visited and any that we might want to try. The tour stopped at 4 locations, the portions were very generous, and we got to meet the chefs to personally compliment them! An amazing tour that I will not hesitate to... More

I thought this tour was a nice change of pace and a good way to check out multiple spots to eat, Charleston has many good ones. The tour guide was very nice and had solid knowledge on the city. I was disappointed with the food choices. The guide made a point to say that Charleston is one of a few... More

Celebrated my sister's 21st birthday and booked this walking tour in beautiful downtown Charleston. The four of us joined two other parties and learned how to make three different unique cocktails all while expanding our history on Charleston. the experience was great, especially for my young sister, and I will certainly be booking future tours through this company.

Had a post Thanksgiving tour which did not fail to disappoint. Mr. Calhoun was so much fun and very proud of his Charleston heritage. The food was top notch and all the chefs shared great stories. Definitely do it again although I recommend little kids (<10) probably not the best choice.

We signed up for the Chef's Kitchen Tour expecting that we would be interacting and speaking with actual chefs at the restaurants we visited. We stopped at five locations, and only spoke with two chefs. The first stop was a doughnut shop where we sat and ate a few donuts. They were actually delicious, but did not talk with or... More

We had a great time on this tour. Visited a few amazing places some out of the way we would have never known about. The historical information was very interesting and we really liked our tour guide. We had plenty of tastings of a variety of things all were very delicious and enough to fill you up.
