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

I would give this tour more than 5 stars if it were possible. The guides were absolutely hilarious and the information was great. Living in Cincinnati for several years and visiting OTR frequently, my wife and I were thrilled with the experience and amazed at the stories. The sights are also incredible. Underground crypts and brewing tunnels made for an... More

We really enjoyed the guides of our Underground Tour. Both of them were very informative and very passionate about the city of Cincinnati. It was quite refreshing to hear such positive attitudes about our city. The tour was very educational but also very fun. I loved that the guides were very caring about not only the buildings but the people... More

We booked a tour with our 8th and 9th grade Girl Scout troops and had a fabulous time! The girls really enjoyed seeing the old buildings and underground areas of Over the Rhine. The guide was entertaining and appropriate for our group of 28 people. Tour office is smack in the middle of a great area of Vine Street. We... More
