Chelsea and Carl did an excellent job of taking what could be boring historical statistics and brought the city to life. Picture yourself in the late 1800s what would it be like to be living in Cincinnati Ohio as a German immigrant, in the over the Rhine neighborhood. Take this tour and you'll find out! Fantastic. Can't wait to come... More

We did a Saturday, 1030am tour. We lucked out and had fantastic weather which was great because we weren't underground as much as we thought we would be. Our two tour guides were upbeat and interesting. We learned a lot about the history of Over The Rhine and prohibition in Cincinnati. I particularly loved hearing about the tunnels under the... More

Loved this tour. Our guides Carl and Chelsea were awesome . They told great stories in a memorable way. I really liked touring the underground cellars and learning the role lager played in Cincinnati history.

We had great January weather for our 2-hour tour of the Over-the-Rhine area of Cincinnati. Laura, our guide, knew her history and was open to questions. Went with my 13-year-old daughter, and we both enjoyed it. Walking tours are the best way to learn about a city.

Tour was interesting, upbeat, and fun. It was apparent that our guide enjoys his job. I am already looking in to booking another tour with them. Consider extreme weather when booking- you will be outside a good bit. Definitely wouldn't bring young kids. Parking took a few extra minutes...give yourself time.

I grew up in Cincinnati but knew little to nothing about this. Our guide, Kevin, did an outstanding job of keeping things interesting and telling cool stories. He was also funny. The tour lasts about two hours and probably the first two thirds of it are outdoors, so the name is a little deceiving. But you definitely get to go... More
