Faith was our guide and she did a fantastic job. We were a wide age group and she kept all entertained. She had great stories and history about Charleston and the restaurants we went to. The food was great. They were very considerate of dietary needs and likes and dislikes. My granddaughter who is 11 had a great time.

This tour was fun, informative and great food. Our guide was excellent and never let us have a dull moment. the stops on this walking tour were tasty and more food than we imagined. We started at Hot and Handy for a full fried pie each, on to pralines, the oyster house, tea and spice, and last Poogans. All were good and worth a full meal although our samples were plenty. We did not need another meal until a light late dinner. Bull Dog Tours did wonderful with the fulltime guide selected for our 7/4 2p tour

Our guide Meghan was terrific! She was informative, interesting and entertaining. She gave us great local tips to use on the rest of our trip. The foods were very good at each stop but I would have liked more classic southern foods to try - shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, she crab soup. But overall it was very good and I would recommend this tour.
