 Who doesn't love Chocolate?!!

     The love of chocolate in our City and Country continues to grow.  So...I've developed a "Chocolate Lovers Tour of Columbus."

   This tour will continue throughout 2015 by arrangement.  Christopher Columbus brought the first cocoa beans to Europe.  Let's explore his namesake city to see what he started. 

     Call 614-326-0942 to schedule your day.

By the way, I know Columbus is not Paris, New York or London.   Good....we don't have as much pollution, crime, or high prices as the really big metropolises, but this little gem of a city does have a lot to offer.  What would you like to see?  What would you like to do? How about an overview of this city waiting to warmly welcome its many visitors?   We can show it all--spectacular landscapes, spiritual heritage churches, fascinating Mid-West history, amazing architecture, relaxing tearoom tours, and yes, we've become a foodie town!

Capital City Tours has been regaling visitors and locals alike for 17 years.  Call us today at 614-326-0942 to discuss your choice and desire...we'll get you there.

OUR OTHER FEATURED TOURS

 

Columbus, Ohio, turned 200 years old in 2012 and I loved showing how we got started, where we are now, and some of our hopes and dreams for the future.  The year 2015 is no less important..so please allow me to continue showing our City to you.  This tour is for 2-5 persons in my van, takes about 2 hrs., and costs $25 per person, with a 2-person minimum.  Got a larger group?  No problem...I'll gladly arrange proper transportation.  Prices will then vary.  C'mon...let's travel the streets of Columbus together.  Tours available every day, Monday - Saturday...all times arranged; you name the time and we'll work it out together.  Sundays are also available after 1:30 p.m. by arrangement.  And for those who want to see Downtown up close , I offer Walking Tours of Downtown in the Summer.  June 20 at 10 a.m..; July 11, at 10 a.m.; and August 22, at 10 a.m.  Dress appropriately because these tours go Rain-or-Shine.  This one-hour tour costs only $10 per person.  We meet at the Pres.

Third Grade Teachers...Hark!

The State of Ohio has teaching requirements for your 3rd Grade students.  I know they get the fun of learning a little more about their City.  I have just the specialized tour for your youngsters.  Learning can be fun when they can place their hands on 200 years of history.  I'd love to be the one to show them how Columbus got started and some fun facts, plus a little surprise or two!  Call me at 614-326-0942 and let's talk about your needs and how I can help you fill them.  It would be my pleasure!
