Our guide, Fran, knew her stuff and was both fun and informative. The stops we made were varied, and everything was delicious. Fun to try some new things and nice to have some beverages included. Also lovely to be given a water bottle to take along. Pace was good as was group size. I had some food issues and was very well taken care of, thank you! Price was great as well.

The tour guide we had, Fran Bennett was very boring in her presentation. Additionally, the food selections were haphazard and not well planned out. We had a breakfast item follwed by dessert followed by a snack followed by tea follwed by a meal. Finally, there was not one single seafood item on the tour which was disappointing considering Charleston's reputation.
