Savor the Flavors of Charleston
6:30pm – 9:00pm
In Charleston’s delicious, award-winning food, you taste more than a chef’s skill and passion, you taste the vibrant flavors from farmers’ fields, the bounty from our waters, and more than 300 years of rich history, cultural and culinary traditions. That’s our goal with every walking food tour, whether you’re a curious home cook or a die-hard foodie.
Tour includes three restaurants with tastings at each location.
Pricing - $125 per person (without alcohol) & $175 per person (with alcohol).


Ghost and Graveyard
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Charleston’s rich history, fascinating places, people, and landmarks bring with them incredible stories — and ghosts! In a city that’s endured everything from war, slavery, earthquakes, and hurricanes to financial prosperity and artistic achievement, ghosts, haunted places, and legends are everywhere. We’ll help you explore the most famous, most infamous, and the most exclusive!
Pricing - $40 per person.


Toast of the Town
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Charleston’s flare for hospitality and entertaining is known worldwide. Walk a few blocks with our licensed guide to visit the quaint bars of three of Charleston’s most popular, upscale boutique inns, and learn about how this Colonial port city became known as one of the best places to raise a toast.
