We had such an amazing time on our food tour! We enjoyed four stops of delicious foods to try while learning the history of how this delicious cuisine started in Charleston. I highly recommend it!

Foodie tours are something I enjoy whenever visiting a new city and have always been fun. We enjoyed this one for the most part although none of the 4 of us would recommend it to anyone. Most of these tours have 5 destinations, this one offers 4. It is actually 3 as the last one is back at their own meeting destination where they have a couch and seats and they bring a tray of cupcakes and cookies out. We were all disappointed as this was not a restaurant destination that added anything to our trip. Also, the photo you see in the ad of 5 shrimp on grits is misleading. That destination included one shrimp on a little mound of grits; rather than a cup of she-crab soup, we were each served a condiment-type plastic bowl with a cover. For a 2.5 hour tour we spent both the beginning and end at their meeting destination chatting, it would have been much more enjoyable and worth the money to add another destination. What I heard after the tour was that imagine the dinner each could have had for $85 per person. .John was a nice guide.

The overall tour was a disappointment. The guide was great but the selection of restaurants and food were way below par for the cost.

I loved every minute and every morsel of food! The amount of food, type of food and locations were perfectly chosen. Plus I traveled solo and the guide was fantastic at making sure I felt included in the group while he offered historical commentary about Charleston and it’s relationship to food. I only wish it was longer! Lol
