News, News, Important News!

NEW in 2018, starting April 1, 2018 to be exact.  Upper Arlington:  100 Years in the Making.  The peaceful little Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington turns 100 years old in March 2018.  Join us as we travel the gently curving streets in the Historic area as King and Ben Thompson planned it 100 years ago, to the planned grid streets that welcomed WWII soldiers home in smaller homes designed to get off to a good start in this community, and onward past the beautiful mansions more recently developed.  We'll talk about the time the US Government came in, took over the newly developing town, practically destroyed all the good work started by the Thompsons, then left town in a hurry, leaving a mess behind.  We'll also talk about the revitalization of Kingsdale Shopping Center, giving new life to our community, as well as some of Upper Arlington's famous sons and daughters.  Tour time:  3 hrs.; Cost: $35 per person.  Room for five (5) people comfortably or we can arrange other transortation.  I take special delight in showing you this community, detached from its large neighbor, Columbus, but important in Columbus' growth.  Please call:  614-326-0942 to make plans.


 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 by arrangement.  Christopher Columbus brought the first cocoa beans to Europe.  Let's explore his namesake city to see what he started.  I will need a minimum of four (4) persons for this tour to "go," and it will cost $65 per person with an occasional reimbursement along the way for this four (4) hour tour.

     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.
