Each Charleston Culinary Tour visits several different restaurants, bars or the Farmer's Market to combine elements of a historical tour with a culinary adventure. The food and drinks on the tours are chosen by various restaurant and bar partners and feature an array of eclectic dishes and concoctions that provide insight into Charleston's cuisine and cocktail scene. 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. Groups need to be booked at least three days prior to tour. Each tour is limited in size. Charleston Culinary Tours are held rain or shine.

We went on both the mixology tour and the culinary tour. Both were great. Charley was our tour guide for the mixology tour and Glenn was our tour guide on the culinary tour. Both were funny, informative and personable. Highly recommend this tour

Charley was an excellent tour guide. Super knowledgeable and friendly. Big portions at all three stops. Our favorite was the R Kitchen, which we will definitely eat at when we come back.
