We had a good time but if I were to critique any part it would be for the tour guides to stay on topic. There was a 20 min rant on present issues with the city. It felt as if they were pitching for 3CDC. It was obvious everyone was annoyed but he kept going. Then we didn't get to see the subway routes. There were only two places that were actually underground. That being said, what we did experience was an interesting way to learn about our city.

We booked a tour with our 8th and 9th grade Girl Scout troops and had a fabulous time! The girls really enjoyed seeing the old buildings and underground areas of Over the Rhine. The guide was entertaining and appropriate for our group of 28 people. Tour office is smack in the middle of a great area of Vine Street. We enjoyed Graeters and walking through the shops after our tour. Perfect outing for a group of teens on a Sunday afternoon!

Also wanted to mention that Brad was very flexible to work with...we had to reschedule our tour due to a snow storm in March. He handled our request promptly with no issues.

After trying for an hour to redeem my groupon for this tour, I'm giving up. The website won't take the redemption code. The phone number provided by the tour, is just a recording. No response from the tour when sent an email asking for help. I guess I'll try and get my money back from groupon - but it's been a big waste of time. Don't know if the tour is good or not - - but it is managed very poorly.

We had such a great time doing the underground tour with our guide John, He was very knowledgeable and fun. This tour takes you to some very unique places in over the rhine that you wouldn't otherwise have access to. I've also done the Gangster Tour with John which was very interesting. American Legacy Tours is such a great company that does so much good for our city.

I have lived in Cincinnati for 15 years- downtown the entire time- and have been on 2 of American Legacy Tours- the Underground and Haunted Tours. Both were GREAT. We were lucky enough to get the same tour guide (I think his name is John- young, bearded, only full timer) both times. John is smart, clever, funny, interesting and has the loudest voice I've ever heard.

Both tour were great for those who live in Cincinnati (you will learn lots of new stuff) as well as out of town guests and visitors.
