In this paper, we present a branch-and-price algorithm to solve two well-known vehicle routing problems with profits, the Capacitated Team Orienteering Problem and the Capacitated Profitable Tour Problem. A restricted master heuristic is applied at each node of the branch-and-bound tree in order to obtain primal bound values. In spite of its simplicity, the heuristic computes high quality solutions. Several unsolved benchmark instances have been solved to optimality.
