I'm so glad I got to do this tour. This part of Cincinnati is the most historic and is happily enjoying a renaissance. My guide was knowledgable and passionate. A definite Cincinnati must-do.

Quirky tour showing a different side of Cincinnati and its history - we especially enjoyed the tour of the underground tunnels and the beer tasting at the end. The guides were very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience for our group.

This tour is very interesting concerning the history of Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine area and the history of the brewing industry in the Cincinnati area before Prohibition and after. This is not to be confused with the underground subway tours. This is a tour of the underground caverns that were man-made to brew beer. Be sure that you can do steps and... More

I went on the Saturday morning Underground Cincinnati Tour and it was a wonderful experience. Our group started out on Vine Street and then visited several sites of historical significance in the Over-the-Rhine area. Our guide, John, was knowledgeable and had so many stories about the area I could have listened to him for hours. After the above ground tour,... More

My boyfriend and I did this tour for a fun Saturday afternoon adventure. We did enjoy the tour and the information we learned. I was a bit nervous about it being in OTR but we were pleasantly surprised! Some parts are still sketchy, but I did notice that there are surveillance cameras everywhere. Learned a lot of interesting Cincinnati History... More

Such a very cool tour, giving a glimpse of the late 1800's to present life, living in the Over the Rhine district. The guides were exceptionally knowledgeable and very passionate about the area and it's struggles thoughout the years. Would totally do this again!

Friends and I went on Sunday am tour....weather was great and that was a plus....The tour guide "John" was a wonderful speaker...easy to understand with a sense of humor.....I thought the tour was enjoyable and interesting....It was mostly "above ground" but still alot of history about 'Over the Rhine" and the Beer industry...............It was well worth the $10 Groupon ticket

The stories where boring and most had a little to much left wing rhetoric about how all the new mixed income housing in Over The Rhine was going to be so great.. Really who wants to pay good money to be preached too.

This tour received pretty good reviews from others but I was underwhelmed. It is not really an "underground" tour at all, although at the very end you get to see some of the underground storage rooms of an old brewery. It is mostly about the history of the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. I received this tour as a gift. I am glad... More
