Did the tour today and we all really enjoyed the information shared and the actual sites we got to see. You will be very surprised to see some of what was hidden away from view for years in the "underground" areas of Cincinnati. We read about this tour in a magazine featuring things to do in Cincinnati and decided to... More

What a hidden treasure! Literally. I heard about this tour through Groupon but I would have paid full price. Guides were funny and full of knowledge. Tour is a walking tour of some old buildings and even go into newly discovered tunnels. Walking and ability to descend and climb steep place a must. Well worth it for 2 hrs. They... More

My friends and I went on this tour over this past weekend. I was disappointed in the tour even before I started, given that my introduction to the company was listening to all three of the guides discuss how drunk they were for about 20 minutes, with one of the employees (not our guide, thankfully) commenting loudly about how she...

My husband and I went on the Ultimate underground tour on Sept. 6,2014. It was a wonderful and informative tour. We learned a lot of things about our incredible city that we didn't know. We loved every minute of it. Over the Rhine has so much history and we loved walking on this tour and being shown where this history... More

I had the opportunity to experience part of Cincinnati's history on this tour. It started with a short history about the theater scene in the early 1900's. I never knew the city was such a popular destination during that era. I also learned why this particular area is called "Over the Rhine". We then toured an old tenant house and... More

My family and I took the Ultimate Underground Tour and enjoyed it. I thought 30 dollars per person was a bit pricey, but I felt we almost got our moneys worth. John was one of the best tour guides ever. He was funny, informative, well spoken and a nice guy over all. During the tour, you learn a lot about... More

We took the Ultimate Underground Tour yesterday. We had a large group of family and friends in town for a wedding and made reservations about a month ago. So glad we did. John was our tour guide and I cannot say enough good things about him. This guy is a walking fact machine about Cincinnati history and he made the... More

Tour guides were very informative. Pointed out some fun facts about the history of beer in Cincinnati. I personally went for the underground viewing of the storage shelters. Was not disappointed in that. Promoting 3CDC was a little overboard. (I do support what they are doing but don't spend 15 minutes of the tour promoting it) I would recommend taking... More

I went with a group and I think everyone enjoyed it! There were old and young alike and everyone had a good time. I would recommend this trip as the tour guides were entertaining and informative. Learned a lot about Over the Rhine and it's rich history. This is not a tour if you can't do steps as there is... More
