Take Your Taste Buds on Tour
Due to its extreme popularity, reservations MUST be made in advance, and if you wait too long, chances are the tour that appeals most to you may be sold out! Offering five different tours that sample the epicurean delights of dozens of restaurants, no two tours are ever completely the same. Lasting anywhere from 1.5 hours (the mixology tour) to 3 hours (most other tours), walking the streets of historic downtown Charleston has never been so tasty!
The Upper King Street Culinary Tour—the most popular tour option—is 2.5 hours long and as you walk from restaurant to restaurant, guests are treated to peeks inside the history of this wonderful neighborhood as they explore the most innovative of local restaurants.
The Farm to Table Experience offers a unique twist on the standard culinary tours. Your guide will be accompanied by a local chef who will take you to the farmers’ market, pick out the ingredients for that day’s meal, and then will head back to the restaurant to prepare a 5-course meal for the guests of honor—you, of course!
The Downtown Charleston Culinary Tour is another popular option, offering insight into the history of Charleston while providing tastes of four of the best restaurants in town.
The Chef’s Kitchen Tour offers a backstage pass to the kitchens of five tasty eating establishments.
Rounding out your selection of tours, the Mixology Tour doesn’t offer food, but features a taste of the best drinks from Charleston’s top mixologists!
No children under the age of 8 are allowed on these tours, and everyone who takes part in the tour must purchase a ticket, even if they’re not planning on eating. Tickets can be purchased at www.CharlestonCulinaryTours.com, or you can call for Reservations or More Info at 843-259-2966.
