Experience the flavors of Columbia

Columbia Culinary Tours is a food and social tour experience in Columbia, Missouri. Affectionately referred to as CoMo, Columbia, Missouri is located midway between St. Louis and Kansas City. The campuses of the University of Missouri, Columbia College and Stephens College surround downtown Columbia. It is a destination for anyone seeking education, culture and athletic competition. With the influence of students and visitors from around the country and world, Columbia is quickly emerging as a foodie’s paradise.

Columbia Culinary Tours wants to introduce you to the diverse flavors of our downtown area restaurants and food specialty shops. Although food is our focus, a culinary tour is so much more! Let us lead the way to a fun and memorable experience that will indulge your taste buds, while incorporating some of the historical insight that has put CoMo on the map!

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