Had a great time exploring & learning about Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Kevin did an outstanding job with story telling and keeping us safe on the Queen City Underground Tour. There is fascinating history involving the German impact of this once thriving section that in recent times became a crime infested neighborhood....but now in most current time is experiencing a rejuvenation...

My husband and I wanted to do something different than our usual weekly date. After finding out about the Queen City Ultimate Underground Tour from the website, we decided that was the uniqueness we were seeking. We thought the tour would not only be interesting as far as history, but also offered a little adventure, which we both enjoy. Our... More

We enjoyed the interesting and informative Queen City Underground Tour. We knew little about the Over-the-Rhine area, and enjoyed the tour guides' entertaining stories. Thankfully, we didn't actually spend a lot of time underground, but the trips below were interesting. One spot is a little tricky to navigate down the steps, but manageable. The tour guides were great - Kevin... More

We had no idea what this tour was about but decided to go on it. Chelsie, our tour guide was just wonderful! She is knowledgeable, funny, charming, and it's obvious that she loves Cincinnati and what she does. Everyone on the tour (about 25 of us) was thrilled! DON'T MISS IT!

Great tour. The guides were very well educated on their topics. We learned a lot of new things we didn't realize. Craig and Kathleen did a great job.

My friend and I took the tour as part of our girls weekend in Cinci. I visit Cinci frequently but with this tour I learned a lot - in a very fun way - and gained a whole new appreciation for the city - past, present, and future.

My husband and I received this tour as a Christmas gift. This is a tour of OTR, much of it above ground. Packed with lots of history lessons pertaining to the area. We both learned a lot with this tour. The actual underground portion of the tour was interesting; packed with more trivia about the history of breweries in the... More

Went on the 2 hour 15 min ultimate tour with Laura yesterday. We learned a ton about OTR. The stops were good. It starts a little slow - but getting better as it goes along. Using a groupon it's only $20 each.
