      Great food and history
      We did the Ethnic Eats tour, and we loved it! Our whole family learned about Cincinnati history and restaurants that we did not know. Food tastings were delicious and plentiful! Our teenage daughters enjoyed it as well. Definitely do this tour!

      Super Tour for Cincy Overview
      The tour featured just the right amount of walking, riding, and eating for us. Our guide, David, was fantastic--very knowledgeable and even made adjustments to accommodate the interests of our small group. It was a great way to spend the morning. When we're back in Cincinnati next year, we'll definitely look into another tour with this company, and we'll try goetta again, too!

      Fantastic brunch tour
      What a fabulous brunch tour! It was a great way to taste a variety of unique food items offered at the Findlay Market. Our tour guide, Laura, did a great job pointing out other points of interest in the market and sharing history of the market and the different vendors we visited. We were very intrigued by the German influences in Cincinnati as well as the beautiful architecture. Highly recommend Laura and the tour. You won’t leave hungry!

      Amazing city tour and tasting!
      We did the Cincy Top 10 'Sites and Bites' City Tour with tour guide Jackie. I highly recommend this tour and our guide Jackie! We had an amazing time seeing the city, learning about the history and tasting the selection of Cincy favorites! We would absolutely do this tour or another one with Riverside Food and Culture Tours.

      Eye opening views and taste treats of Cincy!!
      Our tour guide, David was fantastic! Energetic and entertaining while showing and helping us explore downtown sites and tasty treats! He had a wealth of information and insights for both those first timers in the group and several (us) back years after growing up in or frequently visiting Cincy in prior decades. A great tour and exceptional guide / unofficial city ambassador!

      What a fun way to experience Cincy!
      My husband and I were looking for ways to see Cincy. We did a bus tour but wanted something more. We found this Ethnic Food & Culture Walking Tour with Riverside Food Tours and thought it would be a fun way to experience the city. We had a wonderful and very knowledgeable tour guide. We visited 5 businesses and everyone was so nice and friendly. They could not do enough for us. The food was excellent. We went to Aladdin's Eatery & Lounge [Lebanese Restaurant] had a Falafel pita, then to Poke Hut [Hawaiian/Asian] had Steam Bun with Pork and Bubble Tea, then to Quan Hapa [Asian/ Vietnamese] had a Japanese Pancake {see picture}, then to Gomez Salsa [Authentic Mexican] had chicken tacos and finally to Macaron Bar [French Macaron bakery] and had our choice of macaron. This was our specific tour and not all tours are the same. We highly recommend this tour if you want a different way to experience the city. We had an amazing time!

      Mike is the best! A fantastic day in Cincinnati for first-time visitors.
      I was visiting Cincinnati for the first time with my mom (in her 70s), and we’ve done a lot of these types of tours in our travels together over the years, but this was truly something special. We were so lucky to get Mike to ourselves for the day! He did a tremendous job of showing us around the city and making sure we learned about all of the most fascinating history and hidden gems. We covered a huge amount and also ate some absolutely fantastic local specialties. He was an excellent and solicitous guide who went above and beyond, and ultimately we considered it an absolute highlight of our visit and one of the best overall tours we’ve had the pleasure to book. Thank you for a wonderful day and visit Mike (and for getting some great pics for us to bring home!!)!

    As soon as we booked the tour, Laura texted us immediately with the details and also asked if we had any concerns or questions. She was super professional, very friendly and knowledgeable, and took us to many wonderful restaurants. As we ate, she gave us a brief history of the city and carried poster-cards from the 80s to compare with the current architecture of the city. We had a group member who was vegetarian and Laura accommodated the request. She took many pictures of our group that have now become fond memories. I highly recommend this tour- a wonderful way to see Cincinnati's beautiful architecture + understand it's history while also enjoying some lovely meals and treats! Thank you Laura for an amazing experience. My family was so happy.

We are fortunate to have the wonderful architecture and stories to share with our guests, not to mention the variety of small family owned restaurants to enjoy. Your review made me happy!

    My family and I just had 2 days in Cincinnati and the first was spent at Kings Island. So I really wanted to make the most of my second day. We couldn't decide between a history tour and a food tour but decided on the food. Well, as it turns out, not only did we get to taste some great food, but our guide Jackie knows so much about Cincinnati that we left feeling like we learned quite a lot about the city. I have 3 teen girls and they all said they absolutely loved the tour and found everything Jackie showed us and told us to be very very interesting. It isn't like sitting down for a history class! As we would walk/ride to the next stop, Jackie would point to a mural on a building and tell us about it or a stairway inside a museum and explain why it was curved. We also enjoyed the variety of food. Jackie would call ahead so it was ready at each place right when we got there. It was perfect to end at Findlay Market because then my family were able to explore the market when the tour ended and before we strode the streetcar back to where we parked our car.

    Thanks Ann for sharing such a detailed review. Many people are surprised at how much history, art and culture is included on a food tour. The streetcar makes it easy to visit 4 different neighborhoods through downtown Cincinnati. All of our nine tours are setup to give our guests a 3 hour VIP treatment. I'm happy to hear your family enjoyed the afternoon with Jackie!

    I had so much fun. My husband and I was looking for something to do and we found this. Laura was so entertaining and know her history. she was a great tour guide for us. We got to try food all over Cincy, learn about the history, see the city from a person who leaves there and see the murals. We got to see thing site that we would have missed if we were on are on touring Cincy. I would defiantly do this again.

    Cold afternoon, but totally worth it. Beth was amazing. Full of history and a good sense of humor. Every place had great tastings, the history was interesting and fulfilling, and when one of the places were closed, Beth improvised on the fly, and got us something better. Great tour, would highly recommend to others.

    We had such a wonderful time in spite of the rain! Our tour guide David went out of his way to keep us relatively dry and informed with fun historic facts and Cincinnati food favorites with history. All of our questions were answered in detail. David took quick assessment of the group’s special interests and quickly tailored the tour to our group above and beyond all expectations. Such a wealth of knowledge! Thank-you! Thank-you!

    Thanks LeeAnn for sharing on the morning Cincy Top 10 Sites & Bites.. That's a real tribute to David's professionalism and his thoughtfulness. It's easy to host a tour on a beautiful sunny day, but yesterday was not only rainy, but had streetcar delays to deal with. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I appreciate your review!

    When my long time highschool friends and I decided on a girl's getaway weekend reunion, we decided to try a Riverside food tour in Cincinnati. We had such a fun time! Our tour guide had a wealth of knowledge about the city and balanced our tour with interesting history and delicious food venues. We tasted so much deliciousness and saw so many sights of downtown Cincy! All the food was amazing and she promised we wouldn't leave hungry and we certainly didn't! From a taste of Indian goodness deep fried, to a Scottish Pub for Bangers and Mash, to an Italian restaurant with very delicious pizza, to a warm chocolate chip cookie, to Belgium Waffles with strawberries and cream, a taste of creamsicle fudge and aged cheese, and ending our tour at the sights and sounds of enormous Findlay Market-- everything was a great time! I highly recommend this tour!

    Laura was a wonderful guide!!! Good variety of foods to enjoy and plenty of time to do so! We never felt rushed while eating any of the meals! Laura takes you through many different neighborhoods to really get a feel for the city and it's culture! She gave us tons of local history, pointed out unique art and buildings while we ate, walked and rode the street car. Laura informed us that at the end of your tour you can ride the street car back to your starting point or stay in the Rhine neighborhood to shop the local stores and spend more time in the market. Great suggestion! Your then able to get back on the street car and head back to your car no trouble! Thanks to Laura our time in the city was filled with food, art, history and fun!!! I had no idea there was so much to see in Cincinnati! I would highly recommend this tour!

    My daughter and I were passing through Cincinnati for the day and instead of shopping at yet another generic outlet mall, we decided to get acquainted with the city itself.
    We chose the Riverside Food Tour and what a great choice it turned out to be!
    We learned about Cincinnati’s past thru entertaining stories relayed through our most engaging guide! She took us thru the streets, both on foot and via the Cincy streetcar which gave my feet a nice periodic break!
    The food we sampled at each of the Cincy only restaurants was delicious and just enough. All around a fantastic tour that includes the right amount of history and food to make this a winner! A great way to spend the day in Cincinnati!

    Every time we go to a new city we like to start with a guided walking tour to get us oriented. But on this tour, we also enjoyed the streetcar portion. And, this is the first tour we've taken where we get to stop and eat - multiple times :) It was a great tour, well worth the money.
