Great underground tour yesterday with Dean! Even as residents of OTR, we learned new things. A fun day out for couples — followed by diner in OTR.

Peggy did an awesome job! Lots of great info and I learned so much! The tour takes you all over OTR and the old brewery was my favorite!

My husband and I have done underground tours in Seattle, WA, and Edinburgh, Scotland, so we were interested to see if Cincinnati would have interesting information for us. We were very pleasantly surprised by this tour!! The information was very well presented (thanks to Laura, our tour guide!), and even though I’m not far from Cincinnati it was all new info for us! I would even go on the tour again in the future because they’re actively working underground to reveal more space.

Very interesting and cool tour. Zach was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The above ground portion was interesting with its history. The stairs to the underground were a bit scary to me but there are handrails and I’m very glad I did it. Definitely worth it!

Had a great time with Miranda and Madeline learning about the Over the Rhine neighborhood's storied history. The importance of beer and the impact of prohibition on the areas citizens leaves a clear impression of how tough the early years of the city were. The blonde with the "Chicago" accent and the pregnant lady were amazing hosts, patient, kind, knowledge, and funny. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who would like to learn more about Cincinnati and ask for these ladies for an exceptional experience.

This was the highlight of our trip! Erica was so informative and personable. The length of the tour was about an hour and the price was very reasonable. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to the Louisville area. Perfect for solo, couples, families and groups.

The tour was absolutely amazing and it was a beautiful day to go. Laura was so knowledgeable, eccentric and kind ! Will certainly be back for one of the other tours and will request Laura to be the guide. 10/10

Laura (our tour guide) was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I currently live in Cincinnati and did not know most of the information revealed on the tour. My favorite part was definitely going into the underground tunnels. I would recommend wearing sturdy shoes and potentially bringing a flashlight with you.

Miranda was awesome. Friendly, hilarious, and very informative. Truly a worthwhile experience. We would love to take another of her tours.
