This is a great way to hear of the history and alsp get to speak with Chefs. They are candid and show you their restaurant. Food bites we're delicious and varied. Houn was an excellent toir guide and story teller.

Hoon Calhoun was our tour guide and he was fabulous! So friendly, warm, informative, and funny! He made this tour worthwhile. We hit five restaurants on King Street and enjoyed our experience in each of them. We were surprised that food samples were not served to us at one of the places but the personal conversations we had with the chef were very interesting. We were not taken back to the kitchen of any place as implied in the name and description of the tour. That was disappointing to my husband who specifically wanted to see behind the scenes however, it's understandable due to health code restrictions. We did have a good view of the kitchen in a couple of the places and had good personal conversations about the business and the food with several chefs. Our tour was supposed to be from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm but it went until 1:00 because of the casual and talkative nature of our wonderful host. It was no problem but did cause a tight schedule for us between that tour and the next. Overall this is a fun and worthwile tour.

Amazing!! This was an awesome tour. Nune, oru tour guide was knowledgeable about the city, the restaurants, and very entertaining!! We went to 5 different and unique restaurants and sampled some local fare. In fact, we ended up eating at one of the restaurants that evening and it was the best meal we have eaten in the U.S!!
Highly recommend this tour!!

Fun tour behind the scenes at 5 different, unique eating establishments. From some great breakfast places to a couple of wonderful downtown restaurants. My wife and I very much enjoyed the food, guide and friends we made while in Charleston.

We rated this as one of best experiences in Charleston. Our tour guide Hoon Calhoun is quite the story teller. We took the morning tour. Went to a gourmet donut shop, Callie's Hot Little Biscuits, Indaco Italian Restaurant, MacIntosh and Virginia's. Sampled some great food and learned about Charleston's rich history told in a way to make it very interesting and memorable...especially tales of the strong women of the south

Hoon, the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and the local restaurants. However, I would have liked to have spent more time with chefs rather than hearing him.

We were a party of four, and we found our tour guide at the designated spot, and he immediately made us feel a part of the group! Coon Calhoun is a terrific storyteller. We started our tour at Glazed- a gourmet donut shop. Plenty of samples, and coffee! This tour is a wonderful combination of the history of foods, Charleston, and samples. Our group loved it. The chefs were interesting to listen to, as well. I would recommend this tour as a great started to Charleston! It will make you want to stay on Upper King Street for all of your meals!

The Charleston Chefs' Kitchen Tour was fun, enlightening, and educational. Loved listening and interacting with the chef at MacIntosh and at 492. This was our only walking tour, so Hoon's storytelling and behind the scenes info was delightful. However, there was no indication in the description to indicate how much story-telling would be involved and some of the group was less interested than others. I will look forward to taking this tour again next time I am in Charleston.
