Not worth the money

Guide’s timing was off. We were rushed at the 3 sit down restaurants. Only had time for a couple swallows of liquid . Food was good and that was ready but by time we got our drinks we had to leave. Guide needs to have more information to share.

We really enjoyed our food tour and our very knowledgeable guide. Although very good and prepared differently, grits and grit cake at two stops was just a bit much. Overall good trip and would recommend!

Excellent background information on the culinary history and facts on evolution of ‘low country’ dishes. Franny is enthusiastic about the cuisine and the venues. Delicious and informative tour.

First stop - grits with bacon, tomato, green onion were delicious!!! Spice/tea shop was a great shopping destination, but not a great stop for local food tasting. Crab house and bbq were very loud and made it difficult to hear guide. Candy shop/dessert wasn’t very good. Guide had a lot of useful information, but just recited facts - didn’t make it interesting or entertaining. She was about as fun as a bee sting!

We enjoy food tours because it is a great way to learn the history of an area you're visiting, plus a way to find hidden restaurant gems. Our first stop was, "Another Broken Egg" where we sampled grits (with onions for breakfast?) & beignets. Not impressed with visiting a chain restaurant, plus the pettiness of making us purchase our own coffee. We also stopped at a local BBQ place for pulled pork sliders. My slider had a large chunk of pork (not shredded) on a Hawaiian slider bun. Our final stop was River Street Sweets (another chain) for pralines. We also sampled Fried Green Tomatoes and Stopped at a Tea & Spice Store (another chain). As someone who's toured several times with Viator, this was probably our least favorite tour. Not worth $79
