Cincinnati Streetcar Tour
2 reviews
The Cincinnati Streetcar is an easy way to travel from Findlay Market to the Central Business District. This comfortable, modern streetcar follows a route close to most major downtown attractions, and our tour allows guests to experience some of the locally-owned restaurants along the line. Our combination of local history, good food, and small groups makes this the perfect introduction to any Cincinnati experience. Tour also available for private groups.

This is my second food tour with this group and I have no words but praise for the job they do. They really make you feel like a part of the market and the city even if you are not from Cincinnati.
