Where you'll be

This tour is the only way to get into several restaurants along Shem Creek (a very crowded area) without reservations ahead of time. My partner restaurants and bars have seating available for the groups and arrangements are made ahead of time leading to a stress free tour full of drinks, complimentary appetizers, and amazing history and stories told by a local guide! These locations are special because I personally know the owner of each.

Bryan was phenomenal! Very nice and personable and funny. We got to see another side go Charleston that most tourists don’t get to see which was great. The local food was sooooo good and the drinks were delicious. We are so happy we did this tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

BOOK IT NOW! Such a great time with Captain Bryan! He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Shem Creek, Mount Pleasant and Charleston. Each bar we visited had a different and unique vibe. The selection of libations was plentiful as were the amazing appetizers provided at each location. Ended the tour so full that we cancelled our dinner reservations and decided to hang out a while longer at the final stop (Vickery's) enjoying the amazing views and exceptional ambiance.
