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 15 years with extensive knowledge, jaw-dropping insight, and side splitting anecdotes that will keep you at
the edge of your seats! Even "doubters" have been seen with a smile on their face at the end of these tours!
