This past Saturday I brought my UC students to the underground tour, and Evan & Kevin were our tour guides. They were great – very informative and entertaining, and the stories they told were well-researched. This was part of an urban educational experience for the class. There were perhaps too many people on the tour overall and it ran a... More

After living in the greater Cincinnati area my entire life, it was awesome to learn more about our city! John and Laura were amazingly interactive with our group. I loved their enthusiasm about teaching and showing everyone why they love the history of the area. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to know more about our great Queen City!... More

My wife and I loved the Tour! Very informative and laid out the rich history of Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. And you know you're on a great tour when you end in a brewery tap room! Kudos to our guide, Chelsea, for speaking above the traffic noise to enable all to hear, and for keeping our group (about 20) on-track and... More

What a wonderful day date with my boyfriend, Chris! The tour was entertaining throughout and as a Cincinnati native, I learned many fascinating things during this tour. It amazes me to know the history of the underground world in OTR. Time well spent! Thank you Craig! I look forward to the Gangster tour next time.

This tour was the "deluxe" tour for a few extras not included in the general tour and a longer time frame to cover it. John was our tour guide and besides being engaging and funny, he was a human history book about Cincinnati and OTR specifically. I've lived here for almost 50 years and learned new things at almost every... More

Our tour guide Craig (or was it Greg?) took us all on a wonderful and most interesting walk around Over-The-Rhine, the historical part of Cincinnati, OH. He was fun, funny, interesting, and filled with a great many historical facts and anecdotes. I learned much and had fun at it! Thanks so much. It is a great tour, well-paced, and filled... More

John was our tour guide on the ultimate tour, which is more expensive but really worth it. We spent time under a church and in some tunnels, which I will not spoil what you'll see there. John walked us around the neighborhood and was very entertaining in his descriptions and history of over the rhein. OTR is not the scary... More
