My wife and I enjoy food tours when we travel and we were looking forward to Charleston with all it's history and Low Country cooking. Unfortunately, this tour fell well short of our expectations. First of all, the guide was responsible for two groups simultaneously which was absurd. The pace was SLOW!! Two hours for three stops. The quality of the food was above average but no seafood. The history provided was average but difficult to hear over the noise of the 1st restaurant and very little in regard to the Civil War. On a positive note, they were able to accommodate my wife's Gluten allergy.

Last stop at Toast wouldn’t recommend. Served us old, cold cupcakes.

Really good experience. Didn't care for the Oyster Bar oysters were not on the menu for us food was just sub-par. We skipped the dessert restaurant because, I for one do not care for chocolate and our guide decided to take us down to the docks before this last restaurant and one of my friends just could not walk that far, we had already walked enough for her, she has had two knew replacements. Would we do it again, probably not, a lot of history talk, which is ok for some, 60/person, I feel that I could spend on a really nice meal in a great restaurant for a few hours...laid back relaxing.

Thought it might be more informative. Food was OK. My wife enjoyed tour portion more than I.

I am habitually a five star rater, however, this one was different. The tour leader, Patrick was young and a little full of himself. For instance, he had the attitude that his customers were ignorant of things like how to clean a cast iron pan, the meaning of the term low country, etc. Morevover, two of the four venues became primarily an opportunity to sell drinks rather than focus on the food. The food was good but by no means extraordinary.
