On each tour, you will not only have an opportunity to sample some of the Lowcountry's finest offerings, but also to meet the owners, chefs and mixologists behind Charleston's impressive culinary and bar innovations. Four Tours Available:Charleston Culinary Tour, Chefs' Kitchen Tour, Farmer's Market Tour and Mixology Tour. As most tours sell out, all reservations are required in advance.

Cathy Hinson was our tour guide, and she was an excellent source of Charleston culinary history. There are two questions you cannot ask: 1) Where are we going? 2) What are we going to eat? That's because she likes to surprise her guests. Virginia's on...More

Glenn was awesome and the tour was incredible. Do it. Really. It is worth every penny. He has incredible knowledge of all the chefs and will make recommendations for any food you're looking for. Would definitely do this tour again.

They tell you not to eat lunch, but skip breakfast, too. Glenn was so knowledgable and so much fun. Went to 5 spots, and plenty of food at each. We'd absolutely do this again.

Hoon was amazing - so entertaining and knowledgeable about Charleston history. The chefs and restaurants were welcoming, generous with information and the food was fantastic. Portions were generous, and I was full when I left the last restaurant. I would highly recommend this tour.
