  • This was by far the best activity/tour that I did with my parents in Charleston! Our host Hoon Calhoun was welcoming and entertaining it was fascinating to learn the low country food history and town history of Charleston interwoven together by Hoon. Our tour began with a short walk from the visitor's center to the farmer's market located at Marion Square. It was just so exciting to see all the fresh local produce and products! After everyone in our group got to pick one produce from the market to give to our chef, we had about 40 to 45 minutes to spend on our own at the farmer's market. It was so much fun to go from vendor to vendor to sample their products and ask questions directly from them. And it was hard not to buy anything and take it home with you! Afterwards, our group walked to Virginia's on King where we our chef prepared our 5-course brunch. Through the brunch, Hoon continued to share the local food history and shared some of his family's food stories as well. The chef did an impressive job incorporating all our group's pickings from the market...and we couldn't get enough! All in all, if you want to be introduced to Charleston, do it through a food tour!

  • So glad we included this on our recent visit to Charleston. Great value for money too! Wonderful to experience the Farmer Market with Mr. Henry 'Hoon' Calhoun, a truly charming and amusing southern gentleman. He has humorous tales and facts to share. You are then treated to the creative culinary skills of Chef Chris at the Kingdom restaurant. A really delightful experience.

  • This was one of the best tours we have ever experienced. Great concept, excellent food and an experience we will never forget. We met exceptional people and enjoyed great food and drink and listened to some great stories by Hoon Calhoun. We met a couple and explored Charleston with them.
