Started the evening off with chef Greg Teal in the kitchen at Soby's On the Side. He prepared a delicious rosemary polenta with a bacon wrapped prawn but the peach sauce just set the dish off! Tom, our tour guide, was a warm and friendly host. He was very knowledge about Greenville and the buildings. He showed large pictures of... More

This was a birthday present--spent an afternoon walking around to 5 different restaurants downtown Greenville plus learning a bit about the history of the city. The tour was informative, the food was great (except for frog legs being the highlight of a dish at one of the restaurants--a questionable choice if the goal is to get you to come back).... More

John, the owner of the tour, couldn't have looked after us better. The tour was great and the food samples and drinks excellent. I'm a big guy and I walked away full. At each of the restaurants, a special place was all set up for us with food and drinks ready. Just a great night all-in. Thanks John.

By taking a short walk, we got to experience a behind-the-scenes" look at a number of popular restaurants downtown. It was fun to meet and hear from the chefs about their approach and specialty foods. We knew immediately which ones we wanted to try again! (And they give you a 20% off coupon to do just that!)

This tour is something everyone who is new to Greenville should take, anyone traveling to Greenville, and anyone who lives in Greenville. John Nolan gives a informative and fantastic overview of the city, it's history, and future developments coming to this jewel of a southern city. In addition to all of this information sharing and learning with John, the guide,... More

This was the most enjoyable tour that I have ever taken. Our tour guide, John, and all the chefs were fun, informative and super entertaining!!! The food was spectacular, but you MUST COME HUNGRY!!!! This tour is worth every penny and I can't wait to share it with more friends and family that come to visit us in Greenville.

Delicious food, a lovely city, and an engaging guide all combine to make this a wonderful treat. 3 hours of relaxing eating and touring (mostly eating). We are residents of Greenville, but this was a great way to learn about our own city.
