“Worth every penny!”
We had the best time traveling around to several amazing reataurants in downtown Greenville, SC, eating amazing food, listening to great chefs, and hearing some wonderful Greenville history! The guide, John, was amazing! We got delicious food and drinks at every restaurant and it was fabulous! We left completely stuffed. We will definitely be making time to do this again! Worth every penny!
