My husband and I have lived in Columbia for over 16 years and didn't realize there was so much history right around us, and the food was fantastic! What a great way to learn about this city and taste some great food.

The ladies and speaker were all very nice. I have lived in Columbia for years, but learned a good bit about the history of the Vista area on this outing. The stops for snacks were well chosen. I would recommend this to a friend.
