“Worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Plenty of food and some Charleston history as a bonus. This was a great tour! You will not go away hungry. All the restaurants were great. Glen was very nice, entertaining and informative. Will definitely do this the next time I visit Charleston.

“Biggest bang for your buck and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Did the culinary tour today with Glenn and a group of 10 other people. I do not like tours, but I have to say this is the best of the best! We went to four restaurants and had several courses at each. If you do this tour, be sure not to eat hours before you go. Not only was the food superb, but you also get a great walking tour between stops, narrated by Glenn. He did a fantastic job. I will be passing this on to my daughter who recently moved to the city, as well as doing this again and putting together a group of friends. We did the historic district tour this time, but I'd like to do upper King also. In a word. .. FABULOUS! Glenn. . we will be in touch again. .count on it and THANK YOU!

“Fantastic tour,excellent cuisines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Although this tour is usually booked well in advance I was able to get in on a last minute cancellation. Bill lead us on an excellent walk giving great background and history on our route. We visited four top-notch restaurants along the way. Make sure you come real hungry or you will burst! Time flew as Bill continued his interesting tales and before long we were having dessert and wrapping it up. Would do this again in a heartbeat. Great chance to visit some eateries you might not otherwise see. Greatly enjoyable!

“Great food and culture experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We had a wounderful time on the cullinary tour with our guide Bill Stanton;
A walking tour that visited 5 restaurants where we sampled multiple small plates and visited with the Chef's. Food was great, and was enough for our dinner. Space is limited to 12 to keep it managable. Bill, a retired History teacher is a wealth of information. Strongly recomend

We had such a great time on our tour in July. Glenn was great and even helped us find a place for dinner that night that was perfect (FIG)! We loved the food and all the Charleston history!
