Columbia Culinary Tours

Columbia Culinary Tours provides a unique way to experience downtown Columbia’s food scene. We share the city’s rich history with you as you stroll through the District and enjoy samples from some of its best restaurants and food specialty shops — all locally owned. We visit four to five restaurants and specialty food stores where you can meet the owner, manager, and/or chef and taste samples of the food that they are most proud of.

I can't wait to try another tour!

I had the most fun spending my Thursday evening with Columbia Culinary Tours on the "Out on the Town" tour! With five exciting stops, we got our money's worth and more! Drinks and food were plentiful. Our tour guide Joe was so intentional to add surprises along the way while also being incredibly personable and fun. He was great with every guest and was so thoughtful to make sure each of us felt comfortable and included. As a Columbia resident, I can't wait to try another tour. A culinary tour will be high on my list of activities when I have friends coming to town. Thank you Columbia Culinary Tours and Joe for a great night!

Great date night with friends!

Our Columbia Culinary Tour was a perfect evening of food, fun, and friends. And the only thing better than a sampling of downtown Columbia’s best cuisines is when you combine it with history! The opportunity to try things I might not ordinarily order plus the walking tour packed with fascinating Columbia history made for such a pleasant evening. Joe was a superb tour guide and I truly enjoyed hearing from the restaurant owners and chefs as well. Can’t wait for the next one!

We had an excellent time

We had an excellent time on our tour! Our tour guide Joe was very fun and knew many things about Columbia that were new to us, even as Columbia natives.The food and drinks were not only delicious, but a great large portions! We are definitely going to book another tour.

Great food and drink tour.

Had a relaxed evening exploring some of the downtown food and drink establishments as part of a group of 16. Sounds a large group but in fact it was perfect. Everyone was so friendly. Would highly recommend this public tour - we were blown away by all aspects of this two and a half hour tour. The food was good. The drink was plentiful and the company was excellent.We would go on another tour and would highly recommend as a way of getting to know Columbia. Thank you to you both for adding this public tour to your calendar so that we could attend.
