A trip with Charleston Culinary Tours is a must. “Hoon” Calhoun led our trip and it was extremely interesting and entertaining. Food was incredible over 4 stops. This is the most food I’ve ever had on a food tour.

Dustin, the tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and respectful. There were 4 restaurants that each served ample portions. Definitely a full meal in total. Good sampling of local delicacies. Highly recommend this tour.
