Charleston Culinary Tours offer a combination of unique food and drinks and Charleston's history. Each tour features many different bars, restaurants, and also the Farmers' Market to create a combination of elements of a drink or culinary adventure and a historical tour. Participants will have the opportunity to sample some of the best examples of Lowcountry cuisine, as well as meet the chefs, owners, and mixologists. Most of the tours sell out, so those wishing to take a tour need to reserve their spot in advance. Boasting the country's largest historic district, Charleston's historic downtown is perfect to explore on foot. A tour with Charleston Culinary Tours is also a great way to learn about restaurants and bar to return to during a trip to Charleston.
