Charleston's Upper King Street Culinary Tour
US$65.00 per adult
This guided tour of the trendy Upper King Street area takes the guesswork out of finding Charleston's best and edgiest eateries while introducing you to a part of the city that many visitors skip. Fill up on tastings from a handful of Charleston restaurants and learn how Charleston’s culinary traditions have influenced the flavorful dishes that creative chefs cook up today.
What to Expect
Begin your culinary tour of Charleston’s Upper King Street when you meet your guide and your group at HoM, a trendy restaurant that’s easy to find. Then, start to follow your guide to a handful of restaurants that are changing Charleston's culinary scene.

At each stop, sit and enjoy samples of specialty foods. You might try twists on classic bar grub, high-brow French cuisine, or traditional South Carolina barbecue done right. Every tour is different, though, in keeping up with Charleston dining trends.

Throughout the tour, you guide points out Charleston landmarks and sheds light on how this newly revitalized part of the city has become a culinary hotspot.

Your tour ends on a sweet note for a dessert tasting within walking distance of your starting point.
