Our guide Susan was pleasant, informative and engaging. The food at Poogan’s Smokehouse was really good, 5 Church was a beautiful space and the food delicious. The program needs to find an alternative to The Oyster House as the food wasn’t good, the wait staff was not good and the place smells.

Vacation time is always limited so we all want to maximize it. This culinary walking tour is worthy of your consideration when visiting Charleston. Our guide was Summer. She was very knowledgeable but wasn’t overbearing. The restaurants were all solid and the food samples were nice. See definitely visited a few places that weren’t on our restaurant radar.

We were blow away at the food we got to sample!! This was our first time doing a food tour but it certainly will not be our last. We were just a couple and we were pair up with a family of teens, parents & grandparents. They made us feel like part of their family. It was great. Our guide was the absolute best!!! She was so knowledgeable of the town's history and the food. She had such a great demeanor and personality. Thank you so much for such a memorable time!!!

Great exposure to eats you might not find on your own.

What a great tour. Mimi was a HOOT! We went to 4 different restaurants - they change based on group size and restaurant availability. One of them is always a dessert. We walked about 10 blocks total, but had a least 20 minutes rest in each restaurant. We have been on more than a dozen food tours and this one ranks right up there with those we most enjoyed.
