I had never been on a culinary tour before this one. It was a great way to be introduced to the city and the culinary scene. John, the leader of the tour, was very knowledgable about the city and able to answer many questions and provide a number of recommendations for other restaurants to try out. I definitely recommend this... More

John, our tour guide, cheerfully took our party on a private tour on short notice. The tour was one of the best we have ever taken. John was an expert on Greenville history with photos and great stories. Very interesting. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is a great Saturday afternoon adventure. Don't eat breakfast, because you will be well fed on this tour. It's a lot of food (and drink). You will want to do this tour again and again, because the food will be something different , unique, and delicious each time . John says in 10 years of doing these tours, he's... More

I took the "At the Chef's Table" culinary food tour, which combines tasting great food and learning about the history of downtown Greenville. The food and drinks from all the stops were excellent. The chefs were informative and you could tell they really love their work and helping people to enjoy good food. We went to places I would never... More

Everything was fantastic! I can't believe how much of a good time you can have on a culinary tour, but this was amazing! We got the tickets as a Christmas present to use for date night and it was the best date night ever!

What an awesome fun experience this was. I highly recommend it for groups or just a couple looking for a gastronomic adventure. As a group, we walked to and ate at at numerous up-scale restaurants. It was a chance for the chef to show off so we had very different eating experiences. By the time the tour ended, we were... More

21 people were on the tour. The group included men and women. The food and drinks were great and John's history lesson was good as well. We heard great comments from the group. We would recommend the tour.

We've lived in Greenville since 1974 but we learned some new things on this tour. We had never heard of Chicora Women's School, which was on a hill in the west end for a brief time in the 1800's. We didn't know that Duke's Mayo started in the pavilion next to the river. The tour was fun, the company congenial.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tour - and it was great to learn a bit of the history of Greenville, various downtown buildings, and the restaurants. The food at each location was great, and we also enjoyed the beverages that were provided at each stop. Each food item was very different from each other, and we liked being able to... More

If it was even possible, the second time I did the tour was even better than the first. I learned different, and fascinating historical details, about Greenville that I didn't pick up on the first time and now that I've lived here longer, it was even more interesting. But the food, can we talk about the food?! Totally different than... More
