Excellent food tour. Not just tastings. This was actual small plates at four different restaurants! Amazing food and tour guide. Well worth the money!

My husband and I love doing food tours everywhere we visit. We’ve never done a voice map tour where you listen to the recording of a tour and go at your own pace. We loved it! We were able to spend more time at places we like and try different things. Jessica’s recording was great! We learned about the different areas of Charleston, the history of the city and most importantly about local foods and where to find them. I would definitely recommend this tour! And, I love the fact that you can spend as much or as little as you want based on what you eat.

This was a great opportunity to try several eateries we had not eaten at before. Our guide was an outstanding historian. Reed told us not only about the places we ate at, but also about much of the houses and neighborhoods we went through. The price was reasonable. I hope they have other tours for another time. We visited the Brown Dog, Fast and French, Kitchen 208, The Queen Street Grocery Store, Low Country Olive Oil, and Christophe. Everything we sampled was great. The tour is about 3 hours long. Definitely something for you to do.

I chose this tour for my family because I liked the idea that it was during lunch so it took care of a meal. I also liked that you get some history and good stories while you walk around town. Reed was a terrific guide. It was like having a friend show you his favorite city. The restaurant owners and chefs gave us extra attention and took great care of us. We were really glad we chose this tour. Food tours really help you get to know a city and this one was one of my favorites.
