The tour was Ok! The food variety was limited....we had pulled pork at two locations! It really was all more like bar food! Our last stop was a bakery where there was no where to sit down.

Charlie our tour guide was excellent. The varieties of food were very good and we enjoyed each and every stop. There are so many great restaurants in town that this is a great way to sample a handful in a brief amount of time!

We started our tour of with Hom which is a place I had never been before (and I've lived in Charleston all my life) and it was amazing, you go in expecting a burger and get some amazing treats of calamari, house made flatbread and the green goblin (you'll have to go to find out what that is, ps it's...

There's nothing better than a stroll around this lovely city and stopping by several bistros and restaurants to savor the flavors of local foods. The tour guide added interesting facts about the city and the restaurants. It was a a filling afternoon of facts and food. I'd do it again without hesitation.

We took our first-ever culinary tour, enjoying the Upper King Street tour, and it was well worth the time and cost! Charleston has a top-notch restaurant scene but this great tour offers a look at an under-appreciated part of that scene. The food was excellent and our guide, Charley, offered a lively, insightful experience. Take a chance on this tour... More

No offense to the other guides, I'm sure they are great, but Hoon is an event by himself. He is entertaining, knowledgeable and just a hoot! This would be a bargain even without the food! But - thank goodness the food is included as well! We did upper King and it was great! The restaurants were ones I would probably... More
