Group Tours

Historic Columbia offers a variety of options for adult groups tours to enjoy, including historic house tours, bus tours of important sites in Columbia and walking tours of residential and business districts within the heart of the capital city. In addition, Historic Columbia offers numerous school group tours that meet South Carolina education standards, as well as scout group tours that feature hands-on history activities. We are happy to arrange a private guided tour for your group of 10 or more with advance registration. 

Lunch in the Gardens

Want to stick around for lunch after the tour? Groups are welcome to use the grounds for a picnic. The Robert Mills Carriage House or Seibels House may be used for a nominal fee with your group tour booking.


There is ample un-metered street parking near at all Historic Columbia sites. Motorcoaches drop the visitors off at the gates to each site when they arrive and most often park on the same block.


Group tours of the houses start at $6 per person for groups of 10 or more. Bus tours start at a flat fee of $150.
