History & Culinary


Serving the Upstate

for over 18 years!




My name is John Nolan.

I love my city, and I love people.

When I started the first tour company here two decades ago, I became keenly aware that I would be an ambassador for Greenville, SC. I made it my mission to create genuinely fun and engaging experiences for people, whether they were long-time locals or first-time visitors.

Guests on my tours learn and make meaningful memories.

People can easily love this city, but I can show them how great it really is.

My guests are my best promoters and often return for more. Our history tours have been featured in publications such as National Geographic Traveler, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Conde Nast Traveler, and Southern Living. Come see why USA Today voted us one of the Top 10 Food Tours in America!

Customer feedback

“My husband and I took the Falls Park Walking Tour with Big Chuck and it was a wonderful way to get acquainted with Greenville and learn a part of its history. We were lucky enough to be the only 2 on the tour so it made it even more personal. Big Chuck was very knowledgable and had a great personality so we would definitely recommend taking a tour with him. The 1 hour just flew by!”

“Took the history and architecture driving tour, highly recommend this! John was very knowledgeable, has a TV monitor, to show old historical pictures and new remodeled interiors, wonderful!

A great way to understand the neighborhoods and the history of Greenville.”

“Highly recommended - my wife and I had a fabulous time. The food was wonderful - varied, unique and delicious. John did a great job incorporating the historical aspects of the area and buildings into our tour. Considering the quality and quantity of the food and drinks, the cost is very reasonable.”
