As a resident of Charleston who has been on numerous tours, I can say that this one was the best. First off, Guilds, the tour guide, is a local who grew up knowing almost everyone in the food industry. This is a true insider tour because of his familiarity with that subject as well as the city and its residents. The food was exquisite. Each dish was excellent and used produce and proteins from South Carolina. Your time and money will be well spent on the conversation and food. You won't be let down, and you'll also get a good meal and some entertainment!

With so many must-try places to eat in Charleston, we decided that taking a food tour would be the most efficient way to sample the local food and save time. The Downtown Charleston Food Tour is what we did. The best choice ever! Mimi was the ideal host, providing details about the food and the background of Charleston as well! P.S. The portions were enormous, and the food was absolutely delicious! That evening, we were unable to eat dinner. We had such a great time on the tour that we decided to go on the Farm to Table Experience the following day!
