 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.  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.

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.  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!
