Charleston, Taste of Charleston Walking Tour
Charleston is rich in both history and food.  The rice which was grown here in the 1700s and 1800s made this city the wealthiest in Colonial America.  This wealth allowed the planters who grew the rice and the merchants and factors who marketed and transported it to entertain lavishly with sumptuous banquets.  The enslaved Africans who were brought here to work the rice fields brought with them the sweet potato, the benne seed, okra, and collard greens among other southern favorites. Along with settlers from England Charleston’s population included French Huguenots, Sephardic Jews, and settlers from the Germanic countries, from Scotland and from Ireland.  All of these groups contributed to Charleston cuisine.  Today Charleston has over 700 restaurants and fantastic chefs, many of whom have been awarded the coveted James Beard award for excellence.  These chefs use not only beef and pork which were the most popular meats in the 1700s but also seafood which was abundant in the low country. Many chefs also embrace the farm to table philosophy and outsource to local and regional farms. On this special walking tour you will not only learn about the rich history of the city and the way that Charleston cuisine is related to that history but you will have the opportunity to visit some downtown culinary gems: the establishment of one of Charleston's fine chef, and  several other interesting food purveyors.

Samana, Salto El Limon By Horseback
An unforgettable adventure awaits as you to explore the interior of the Samaná Peninsula, where the mountain range ascends 2,100 feet.
