The At the Chef’s Table Culinary Tour affords guests the opportunity to sit at the tables of some of the city’s top chefs and sample their signature dishes. Tours include special access and experiences that go far beyond the normal dining encounter. Not only do you get to meet the chefs and sample their creations, but you also get to see cooking demonstrations (usually offered on Tuesday tours), eat in elegant private dining areas, and more. Stops include visits to: Nose Dive (Gastropub) Soby's on the Side (Deli and Catering)* The Lazy Goat (Mediterranean cuisine and tapas) Soby's New South Cuisine (fine Southern cuisine) Passarelle Bistro (French inspired cuisine) Beyond the memorable culinary experiences, you will also learn fascinating insights into Greenville’s rich history, culture and architecture as well. (*If a restaurant has a schedule conflict, a stop at The Loft at Soby's or Papi's Tacos may be substituted. )

My husband is a foodie type so we have done culinary tours in most major cities including a couple in NYC, Seattle, San Fran and even Paris, France more recently recently and this one rates right up there with the best of them. The food was excellent and the chefs all very entertaining and informative. But the history of Greenville... More

We had a wonderful time at the Chef's Table tour earlier this week. John Nolan, our tour guide, was personable and very knowledgeable. It was fun and interesting learning about some of the history of Greenville on our walks between restaurants. The food and drink were excellent and we met and chatted with lots of nice people. We would highly... More

Greenville has become a great foodie location, and this tour hit some of the best! At each location, there was an appetizer-to-small plate size sample and beverage, presented by the chef along with detailed information about the preparation and pairing with the beverage. During the walk from location to location, John provided a great explanation of the history of Greenville... More

We enjoyed this tour. Better quality than the other tours we have taken in Charleston and St. Augustine. More bang for your buck. 1. Alcohol included 👍 2. Chefs come out and speak to you like human beings 👍 3. You get access to the nicer spots in the restaurants (upstairs and wine cellar) and even if they aren't open... More

Food at each venue was uniformly great as were the drink pairings - the talks by the chefs at each stop were very interesting and gave a little insight into the "inner workings" of a busy restaurant. John, the guide and owner of the tour company gave a lot of interesting detail on the surrounding buildings and on the development... More

Tour was awesome. Food was great and very informative tour. Highly recommended. Never been on one before and was a little skeptical but everything was delicious. An opportunity to try foods I probably wouldn't order on my own

Excellent walking tour. The guide was very informative. He had a portfolio which had images of the past as we viewed the actual present.

Excellent tour. Enjoyed Sobys on the Side because Chef explained his education and how their kitchen worked. Great drink pairings with the food at each place. Generous portions at each restaurant. In my humble opinion could have two restaurants with desserts and 3 with entrees
