Excellent tour and amazing food. Our guide Cotton was great funny and informative. All of the restaurants treated us to wonderful tastes of the new modern Charleston food.

This was our first foodie tour in Charleston. Four restaurants serving 15 items. More food than we needed. We had some great vegetarian options too. We especially liked the veggie flat bread at HoM and the mussels and bread at 39 Rue de Jean.

Come hungry because you will leave full. We visited 3 restaurants and a gourmet ice cream shop on Upper King Street. Each stop had delicious food - about 3-4 distinct offerings at each stop. Our guide, Charlie sp, was energetic and very knowledgeable about the history of the food as well as sites on the way to each restaurant. Food varied from hamburgers, to French cuisine, to BBQ. very yummy!
It costs extra for beer or wine but well worth it.

This tour is awesome! Mimi our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us history on everything. So it’s like having a history and culinary tour.

We tried restaurants we wouldn’t have known about and different areas of Charleston.

I highly recommend this tour it’s awsome.

Do not leave Charleston without doing this tour! King Street is known for it's culinary flavors! It's actually top 10 in the nation for it's restaurants. Just on the small strip of Upper King Street, you'll find James Beard award-winning chefs cooking up delectable dishes. On our tour, we visited spots, including probably the best mussels I've ever tasted and a brand-new pop-up restaurant serving up Polynesian and Asian inspired dishes, and best of all, they only open up the restaurants for our group! Our tour guide, Guiles, was full of beautiful history of the town and the culture. It's through this tour that we found the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Hoon Calhoon is quite a character, and told many interesting stories. This tour is more about up and coming chefs. We went to a sports bar, a french restaurant, a BBQ place and an ice cream store for dessert. The food was delicious, but not what we expected do not take this tour if you are looking for authentic southern dishes.

The tourguide, Charlie was great. We wished we could have learned more and heard more from the chefs about the meal preps. Food was great. Maybe we should have skipped lunch because this was definitely enough food to be called dinner! Good restaurant selections!

I was on a girlfriend getaway 7 of us in Charleston and we decided to take this tour. It was a great experience to get out of the touristy area and experience the trendy restaurants of Upper King. The food at each stop was plentiful and delicious and the dessert that we had at the bakery was the perfect way to end the tour. Our guide was informative and did a great job herding her guests. I will highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Charleston.
