Tours & Experiences

Whether you fancy an educational experience, want to try all the culinary goodness, or just want an excuse to drink craft beer all day, Columbia has an experience that will make planning your trip a breeze.

Consider yourself a history buff? Spend a day with a tour guide from Historic Columbia to peruse historic homes and gardens. From former presidential homes to the site of an entrepreneurial African-American family, there's no shortage of history in heart of South Carolina. If you prefer to take in history at your own leisurely pace, follow our self-guided reconstruction era trail, Reconstructed: A Journey Through the Reconstruction Era. Or meander through the gardens at the State House where you'll find all kinds of history from monuments to the bronze stars on the building.

If a good party is more your thing, hop on the pedal parlor and bike your way from bar to bar singing your favorite tunes. Or book a tour with the Columbia Brew Bus to see some of Columbia's most popular breweries.  

If you're traveling with the family and looking for affordable experiences, hit some of Columbia's award-winning attractions with our multi-attraction tickets, the CoolPASS and CulturePASS. Get discounts on three major attractions with each pass, good for one year from the purchase date and accessible via text or email so it's easy to keep up with.
