Informative just not exciting

The food was good, all nice places. Informative. But very low energy level, slow passed therefore just didn't make it very exciting.

Gordon, a former chef, was a fascinating guide who shared his personal culinary knowledge of the local cuisine while also mixing in some of Charleston’s interesting history. Thanks so much for introducing us to some of Charleston’s food favorites! We loved the green fried tomatoes! Fun day in Charleston!! Thanks, Gordon

A taste of Charelston

We throughly enjoyed our tour, learning the history of families and the low country. Gordon, our guide, was very informative and personable. The restaurants chosen were landmarks, and we enjoyed all of the tastings, especially the grits at Virginia’s! And we enjoyed meeting the other tour guests. Our only regret is that we were unable to go on a tour earlier in the week as they are offered only on Fridays and Saturdays, so we could make reservations at a couple of restaurants we liked. We would definitely go on another one of Bulldog’s tours on our next visit to Charleston. ( our group consisted of me and my husband and two adult children)
