Charleston Culinary Tours

Charleston Culinary Tours combine the best of Charleston history, food and cocktails with unique historic tours that highlight the local cuisine. There are five tours that include Downtown, Upper King Street, Chef's Showcase at The Farmer's Market, Chefs' Kitchen, and Mixology. Each Charleston Culinary Tour visits several different restaurants, bars or the Farmer's Market to combine elements of a historical tour with a culinary adventure! The food on your tour is chosen by our restaurant and bar partners featuring an array of eclectic dishes that provide insight into Charleston's cuisine. On each tour, you will not only have an opportunity to sample some of the Lowcountry's finest food offerings, but also to meet the owners, chefs and mixologists behind Charleston's impressive culinary innovation.

As most tours sell out, all reservations are required in advance. Groups need to be booked at least three days prior to tour. Each tour is limited in size, so it is recommended that you get your reservations early. Charleston Culinary Tours are held rain or shine.

Downtown Charleston's historic appeal is well known. It boasts the largest historic district in the United States. Charleston’s varied history, full of mystery, romance, southern charm and sometimes brutality, makes for an amazing historical walking and culinary exploration. Historic downtown is perfectly set up to travel by foot. For eighteen consecutive years Charleston has been named a "Top 10" travel destination in the United States and was voted the number one travel destination in the United States in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

TIP: Take a tour at the beginning of your trip to Charleston! The array of options can be overwhelming. Charleston Culinary Tours will help introduce you to the Upper King Street and/or Historic District and some of its culinary gems to which you can return for breakfast, lunch or dinner during your stay!
