John M. Nolan started this city tour company in 2006 and has grown to partner with many local businesses. His tours have a little of something for everyone, even ranging from walking tours to trolleys. One of the most recent (not to mention delicious) tours is the “At The Chef’s Table” culinary tour. Lasting around 3 hours, your tour includes five fabulous dining experiences plus the opportunity of meeting chefs! This tour also lets you in on some of the historical and cultural gems to Greenville.
If you are needing to walk off some of those tasty meals you find at the numerous top-rated restaurants in downtown, you may be interested in the “West End Walking Tour”. Where else to begin but in stunning Falls Park, the birthplace of Greenville! Highlights include details of some of the historic buildings and talks of various famous people from Greenville (some you are able to visit their statues).
Great for newcomers or groups is the driving tour of Greenville. This offers both West End and downtown information. Development of the city plus recent revitalization topics are covered as guests are shown some of Greenville’s highlights.
