Why a Private Tour?
Private tours are just like public tours, but in a small intimate setting with your closest family and friends.
Private tours are perfect for:
- Birthday Parties
- Bridal or Baby Showers
- Church Group Outings
- Cooking or Dinner Clubs
- Corporate Events
- Culinary Classes
- Family Reunions
- Team Building
- Wedding Parties
- Private group tours are limited to groups of 10. If you have more than 10, we’ll need to schedule 2 tour guides.
- Private group tours must contain a minimum of 6 people.
- Private group tour route and tasting locations are the same as the public tour route and locations.
- Private group tours are held rain or shine.
Private Group Pricing
- Private group tour tickets are sold at the same price as public tours.
- A 15% gratuity fee will be added to your total cost and given to our tour guide(s).
- A 50% deposit is due at time of booking, with the remaining balance due 10 business days prior to your tour.
- Once tour is scheduled, all tickets and payments are non-refundable and tour cannot be rescheduled.

Coordinating a private tour involves much collaboration between your tour organizer, a Columbus Eats representative, and all the restaurant and store owners of our tasting locations. We want your private tour to be just as fabulous as our public tours. To optimize your tasting experience, please keep in mind that it is difficult to handle last minute changes or agreed upon adjustments.
Private group tours must be a minimum of 6 people. Groups of 16 or more will be split into smaller groups and have staggering start times. It is more difficult to schedule private tours on weekends. To guarantee your private tour can be booked, it’s recommended to request a weekday tour. Private group tours are held rain or shine.
During a private tour you’ll receive the exact same experience as a public tour. The difference is you’ll be with your closest family and friends. We try to accommodate any dietary restrictions or food aversions, provided that we know about them in advance.
