“Savor the Flavors Experience”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

My tour was led by a very knowledgeable guide born and raised in Charleston named David. This is not an eating tour (that would cost much, much more). It is a sampling tour for those who like to cook and want to learn about regional food preparation, production and history. We were educated about local restaurants and taken to a store on East Bay that sold a wide variety of kitchen/cooking supplies, as well as to a shop that sold locally grown spices.
We sampled stone ground grits at a local eatery once featured on Diners and Dives, pralines, spices, greens and local barbecue.

“Delightful Walking Tour including History of Food and Tastings”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We enjoyed a 2-1/2 hour tour of the downtown Charleston area with tour guide Susan DeBlase. The time flew as Susan was entertaining with her history of the food in Charleston as well as the many stops we made for tastings or food shopping.

We learned the history of how many foods came to be in Charleston and their origin. We tasted grits, benne wafers, collard greens ,pralines and caramel clusters from the candy store,and wonderful barbeque sliders. We shopped for teas, oils and spices as well as the latest tools for cooking.

If you are a foodie or just enjoy eating, this is a must!!!

“Lots of Fun!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We took the Ghost and Graveyard tour last week and had a great time. My kids (ages 10. 13, 15) really wanted to do the 9:30 tour so it would be more 'scary'. Our guide was named Cory and he was great! His mannerisms were perfect for a ghost tour! He spoke slowly and clearly, often pausing and looking off into the distance which added to the drama. He took us to several different areas in the city and told us some really great stories. We were all throughly entertained!! When we finished the tour, Cory admitted that it was only the second tour he had ever given as he was new to Bulldog Tours. We would have never known!! When we come back to Charleston, we will definitely do another ghost tour. Lots of fun!!!

“Come to the Dark Side!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went on the Dark Side of Charleston Tour while I had some free time and it was really cool. Not cheesy or anything and no "ghosts" just some great information about Charleston through some really good stories.
Be sure to try and do it during the week so it's less crowed and there aren't as many people on the streets while you're out on the tour. Eat before hand, cause the tour is a little long even though you don't do as much walking as you think you would.

“Great fun”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

My daughter and I did a ghost tour one night on our trip to Charleston. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and hearing his stories about the general area was almost as interesting as the ghosts themselves. We went to 4-5 sights, heard a few creepy stories, saw some neat areas of the city and had a good time. Fairly priced too.
