The tour was fun and the tour guide was great but one criticism I would have is when we were at our first stop in the restaurant we were sitting at a long table with the guide talking at one end and it was hard...More

Susan DeBlase was a wonderful hostess for our Downtown food tour. We visited 4 well known restaurants in the area of the marketplace. As we walked from one to the other Susan shared some history about Charleston. Also, we learned some southern traditions/culture about the...More

This was the first thing we did on our trip to Charleston. Hoon is hilarious. He is a funny, Southern good old boy full of stories and colloquialisms that will keep you entertained non-stop. The food on the tour itself is fantastic - even better...More

We had a terrific 3-1/2 hour food tour. Saw many restaurants and chefs and ate wonderful food. We also learned a great deal of the fascinating history of Charleston. Our guide, Hoon Calhoun, is knowledgeable, witty, and lots of fun. Terrific man.

Not worth the time or money. Of all the wonderfully different and hip restaurants in the UK street area, my husband and I felt the choice of restaurants was poor. The food selections were disappointing too. The first stop included chicken wings and deviled eggs....More

Well done to Calhoun and Chef Kyle for a great experience. First stop, farmers market for fresh produce, cheese and so much more. Some local entertainment then to an on demand meal with 12 (yes 12!) courses. Just WOW!

As long as we are made aware of dietary restrictions at least 24 hours in advance we can accommodate most requests (due to the nature of Lowcountry cuisine we cannot accommodate vegan, dairy-free, or soy-free diets). We can... More
