This tour gave us a wonderful appreciation of the history of Greenville! Beautiful parks, homes and neighborhoods were even better with John's expert narrative and passion for this city.

This historical Greenville tour was fun, informative and interactive. John offers a wealth of information not only the early days of Greenville but also current development activity.

We enjoyed this so much we would do the same tour again! John had a deep knowledge of Greenville and even though we've lived here for almost 15 years, we learned so much.

John was friendly and knowledgeable. I've lived in Greenville for 25 years, but I still learned new things. Excellent food and a chance to hear a chef tell his story while he prepared our appetizer.

Went with 10 friends, and exceeded Everton' expectations. The food was fabulous, lots of it, and nice to interact with the chefs. Easy to walk from place to place, wide variety of food to try. Will definitely be back to the tour and the restaurants

This tour was awesome! It had a bit of Greenville history and some very good eats and drinks at some of Greenville's top restaurants. We were able to meet the chefs which was an additional bonus
