Our weekend getaway to Columbus was highlighted by Victor's tour of the old town. We called him with our small window of opportunity for a tour and he made it happen. We loved the fact that he simply jumped in our van, drove us around town, gave us more information than we could process, and for such a great price. He also made suggestions of local iconic restaurants that we enjoyed. We believe that you cannot visit Columbus without hearing from Victor but you will probably want to call ahead to secure your spot.

My family and I did two tours with Victor: The Columbus Black Heritage Tour and the Phenix City- Sin City Tour. Both were about 2 hours each and we did them on separate days. Victor definitely knows his stuff and you can tell how much time and research went into his work. He was communicative throughout the process from initial booking through day of and everything was timely. He even offered up great local recommendations which proved to be a hit when we went to go try them afterwards. One of my family members is a Columbus local and even she was impressed with the scope of the tour, which corroborated with her personal history. Both tours offered up unique stories rooted in history and we're so glad we found this tour. Would definitely recommend!

My mom, my sister, my son and I went on the Wicked River Cities tour on October 8th. It was very interesting to us and there's a lot of information that we didn't know about Columbus and Phenix City. Victor was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of both cities. The tour lasted a little over 2 hours and we covered a lot of locations and history about the cities. We are going to come back at another time and go on one of the many other tours that they offer. They are very reasonably priced and are a great value for your money. What a great way to get out of the house and learn about the history of our great cities. Highly recommended, great job Victor!

We had a wonderful time on our city tour with Victor. We came in for the day and visited the Civil War Naval Museum in the morning and scheduled our tour from 2pm to 4pm in the afternoon. Victor met us at the Visitor's Center downtown. He is so knowledgeable and stops anytime you want for questions and a deeper dive on the locals. The tour moved along at a great pace. I allowed him to drive my car and it worked out well. He knew where to stop to get out of the traffic, he would have constantly had to give me directions if I had driven. There were 3 of us on the tour including an old history teacher from the area. We all learned a lot, even those of us who knew a lot to begin with. Thanks Victor for a great time.

We are locals but had our out of town family visit. We are not great narrators of history so we decided to book a walking tour to help explain the city's history to our out of town family. We all had so much fun! Us locals learned a few things and our family really got a good feel of where we live.

It was my first time in Columbus, Ga. I wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday by visiting Columbus, taking a tour of the city sites and "WOW" did we enjoy the tour. Victor was the best and we recommend taking any of the listed tours being offered. We will definitely planning to bring our family for a tour.

A gem. Book a tour with Victor! We have done many city walking tours and Victor’s was one of the best.His wide range of knowledge,history,love of Columbus was so enjoyable. We saw parts of Columbus we would not have seen on our own and learned so much.. Now that we know these areas exist we will revisit. We did the downtown Columbus tour and if time allows would like to book another of Victors tour. Well done

Victor is a true professional who is passionate about his city and his craft as tour guide. He is amazingly accommodating as we booked the tour only a few hours before it was scheduled. We chose the Black Heritage Tour where Victor illuminates the history of the African American community within the Columbus area with stories that are important to hear and know. Great job Victor!

Victor was an excellent Tour Guide! It's was a privilege to spend the afternoon guided by him today while on his Columbus Georgia Black History Tour. I was somewhat skeptical of what it may intell when I read that one of the tour options would be in my vehicle. Be that what it may I was also open having my own private tour with just my Girlfriend and I. I was glad I did because it was a great experience! His love for the city and its history was apparent very early on. He was very informative about places and famous people both past and present. He also didn't hesitate to answer questions or take extra time sharing things that interest you most, and he was also a pleasure to be around. I learned a lot today during my tour... so thank you and keep doing what you love Victor! You are AWESOME SAUCE.

Victor is a knowledgeable and capable tour guide. If you want to know more about Columbus and its history, Victor is your man. His prices are more than reasonable, and I’m so glad I spent a breezy Friday evening walking the streets of Columbus and learning with Victor.
