Not as underground as you would expect but a great tour and learned a lot about Cincinnati and Over the Rhine that I wasn't aware of. Your guide Craig was great and very knowledgeable and funny too! A must see.

Our tour guide John was amazing, full of knowledge that he was happy to share, he could answer (almost) any question thrown at him. We purchased the ultimate tour, it is questionable whether it is really worth the upgrade. The tour itself was not what we expected or as it is explained online. Rather than talking about the brewerys through... More

John and Laura are fantastic story tellers! Not as much underground as I expected, but those two tour guides made up for it. Very knowledgeable. They can answer additional questions you may have about the city as well.

Our tour guide John had a great way of presenting the history of Over the Rhine. Loved all of the information, and he told it in a humorous and engaging way! I would definitely recommend you check out this tour!

Guides John and Laura made the tour super fun as they are superb story tellers! We could tell that they loved their city, had fun with what they do, have a lot of pride in OTR and a lot of concern for the future of their community. We live in Cincinnati and it was great to learn more about our... More

Though I enjoyed the tour I was expecting more than just going through one labyrinth of the underground beer making tour. Our tour guide, Chelsea did a wonderful job though. My husband and I also enjoyed it and was in awed in how much changes Over The Rhine went through! I just hope they will continue to refurbish that neighborhood... More

The tour guide was absolutely wonderful and made this tour worth it. I didn't look into the tour before signing up because I wanted the surprise. I was most impressed with the info he gave on St. Francis Seraph Church and the underground space at the Guildhaus Apartments.
