Monica was very personable. She gave us suggestions on drinks to pair with our tastings. She shared a lot of Charleston history outside of food history. She was fun and will recommend this tour to all my friends

This tour offers great food and good information on Charleston’s culinary history. Our guide Mimi was very knowledgeable, delightful and entertaining. Visited three excellent restaurants for food and the fourth one was desserts. We tasted shrimp and grits, bbq, fried chicken between other dishes. Best time to spend an afternoon in Charleston.
