My husband and I were so fortunate to grab two spots on this tour and it was well worth it! The historical component of this tour was very informative and thoughtful, with recommendations for other places to see and dine at given along the way. The cooking class and tasting portion was absolutely amazing; we learned so much about the cuisine of Charleston and had a delicious meal. If you’re considering any tour in Charleston, this should be at the very top of your list!

Yesterday's tour with Chef was the highlight of our trip. His historical tour was informative and fun and the meal we ate, incorporating the ingredients we learned about, was some of the best food I've ever eaten. I can't wait to do the tour in another season and share another meal at the charming Bistro A Vin.

Hands down the best tour we’ve ever taken. It was all about our tour guide, Forrest (Gump) Parker. He combines a unique culinary experience with culture and history that we really enjoyed. Would do it again in a heart beat. Thanks again Forrest.

Five stars doesn’t even begin to describe the excellence of this experience. This tour was a beyond wonderful experience. Chef Parker was knowledgeable, engaging, entertaining and the food was perfect! Chef Parker, through his cooking, demonstrated a passion and love for food, history and people. Very unique experience combining how food and history are historically related! I would and will talk about and recommend this tour to all my friends and anyone that will listen. So wonderful to be a part of someone’s passion for his city, food, and history! Smart, tasty and unique!! Also saw Chef later that night and he was just the same. PS he has great recommendations and loves crediting others for their part in this historical culinary adventure! Truly an incredible experience.

Definitely Worth It

Tour took a little longer than it was supposed to, but it turned out to be great, and every part of the lunch was delicious. Chef was even nice enough to box something for my mother, who had to leave the tour. He also gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. Overall a great experience, even in bad weather!
