"Delicious Tour! "

June 27, 2017 - 

The food! Wow! Charlie walked is to three fantastic restaurants, with incredible local foods and finished with a great dessert bakery with the most delicious blueberry topped cupcakes. Charlie's knowledge of Charleston was amazing! I highly recommend this tour, and it is constantly different since the stops change with availability. I would do it again.

"Great for the Kids"

August 7, 2015 - 

My son loved it. He got to watch chefs do their thing and was engaged the whole time, which is super rare. Three hours well spent.

"Gluten Free Accepted!"

July 22, 2015 - 

I was a little worried about going on a food tour since I'm gluten free. However, these guys are pros. They made sure to have something for me at every stop and even gave me ideas on what to make at home!

"Tried All Types of Food"

"Fun But Pricey"

July 6, 2015 - 

Fun times, good food. Price was a bit steep but looking back, my family tried more with this tour than we would have by myself.
