Imbooked the tour wanting to sample some southern cuisine, and we got a history lesson as a bonus! I especially enjoyed hearing about the architecture in Charleston and how it changed over the years and how history and weather affected it.

This was a wonderful tour. We take a food tour in many cities we visit and were surprised by how amazing the food was with this one! We got to try four different restaurants in town that were delicious and even had a picnic at the waterfront. Amelia was our guide and she was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Wonderful food and colorful and informative narration. Our kids learned a lot about the history of the South and Charleston in particular through the delicious food that we tasted and the personality of the tour guide ("Hoon Calhoun").
