Charleston Chefs' Kitchen Tour
From US$60.00
More than a classic culinary tour, this Charleston Chefs’ Kitchen experience provides behind-the-scene access to top Charleston restaurants and shows you how professional kitchens work in real life. Meet the chefs behind trendy and traditional restaurants alike, sample popular dishes, and learn about Charleston’s culinary scene from an industry insider as you walk through Charleston’s historic downtown.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Charleston Visitors Center to meet your guide. Then, begin walking through historic downtown Charleston en route to five restaurants tried and tested for quality.

At each restaurant, meet with top Charleston chefs, peek behind-the-scenes at busy five-star kitchens, and learn about Charleston's ever-growing food scene from industry insiders. Samples like pastries, biscuits, and traditional Southern cuisine give you a taste of the dishes Charleston has to offer.

As you walk, your guide tells you about Charleston history, food, and culture, giving you a better sense of Holy City character you might miss on your own.

When the tour is over, your guide walks you back toward your original meeting point.
