    Our guide Meghan was terrific! She was informative, interesting and entertaining. She gave us great local tips to use on the rest of our trip. The foods were very good at each stop but I would have liked more classic southern foods to try - shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, she crab soup. But overall it was very good and I would recommend this tour.

    What a great experience! Faith was very knowledgeable and attentive to everyone on this tour. Her insight on the local food history was very engaging. Also I was concerned about my soy allergy when I signed up for the tour, expecting to pass on a lot of the food offered. Every stop was aware of my allergy and accommodated the food so I didn't miss out! Excellent choice for a tour!

    Blake was a great guide. He told very interesting stories about the history of Charleston as we tried lots of Charleston favorites… grits, fried green tomatoes, she crab soup, and so much more! I recommend trying the tour at the beginning of your trip, so you can go back to these places for dinner! We booked the tour for the last day, so now, we have to go back to Charleston again to try them for dinner!
