If you are interested in sports, or in movie trivias, or World War, or if you are a foodie….you will really enjoy learning all these fun facts about Cincinnatti. I left the tour wanting to stay a few more days sightseeing the beautiful homes, parks, murals surrounding the city.
Oh, and It is true, the tour will go on rain or shine. It was pouring and we still walk from one site to the other enjoying some of the unique flavors of Cincinnati.

Thank you for pointing out the fact that the CIncy Top 10 Sites and Bites is as much about the history and sites as it is about the food. What a compliment to your guide that you wanted to remain longer. Yes, if we cancelled for rain, we'd have to cancel half the tours - haha.

This tour was excellent! The tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable about the city and could answer all of our questions. It rained for the first half of the tour (the part with the most walking) and David handled it like a champ. He had a great attitude and adapted things to get us under cover as much as possible while he explained certain sites. The food choices offered a great variety and seemed to hit the highlights of the city. There was a good use of the streetcar to see more neighborhoods. Highly recommend!

Thanks Nicole for the great review. It's a challenge providing an excellent city walking tour when it's raining non-stop. David is a pro and always delivers a wonderful experience. Thanks for your high recommendation.

In one word the tour was stellar. We knew nothing about the sights and sounds and foods of Cincinnati and Ms Jackie was so awesome in taking us on this roller coaster of a tour that was studded with delicious food stops.. fun filled train rides and history all along. It would not have been the same without her. Ms Jackie and the rest our gang were so patient with our toddler who had a little bit of a rough time with the chilly weather that morning. And to top it off.. she took pictures and shared them with us. Happy memories. I’d recommend this tour to anyone who hasn’t been to Cincinnati before. Even if you have been to the city before.. the history channel 101 that you get on this tour will blow your mind. The taste of the black raspberry chocolate chip at graeters ice cream is still lingering on my taste buds… thanks for having this tour. It’s the best gift for tourists.

Thank you for sharing on the Cincy Top 10 Sites and Bites morning tour. It's a tour designed for first time visitors and families, so we're glad you enjoyed it! Jackie loves downtown Cincinnati and is an expert on everything Cincinnati ~ past and present. I agree that Graeter's Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip is a memorable tasting!

Great tour with Mike yesterday. Was just 4 of us so felt quite personal. We unfortunately didn't have a lot of time in Cincinnati having been visiting primarily for the zoo but wanted to at least get a look at the city and this tour really gave us a great overview of the best of what the Queen City has to offer. Enjoyed all the food stops along the way too, some sweet and some savoury. Highly recommend this tour.

We did the Top 10 Sites and Bites Tour on a Monday. David was a capable tour guide and we enjoyed what we did do with him as our leader. But we were very disappointed that our actual experience didn't match the tour description on their website. Findlay Market is closed on Mondays, which wasn't mentioned until the start of the tour. We didn't walk on the Roebling Bridge as mentioned, but David did talk about it from the street in front of it. Carew Tower was partially closed, so no stop there, and no mention of this was even made. Because the Market was closed we didn't have the same amount of food stops, though the goetta was included in the first venue along with the waffles. The doughnut shop was not included in the itinerary, though it was advertised on the website. Also be aware that the stop for ice cream at Graeter's is for a flavor of their choosing.

I'm glad you you enjoyed the tour with David! We always appreciate positive feedback. The tour is meant to give guests an overview of all the wonderful places in Cincinnati to visit, so they can return to the ones they want to explore in depth. It is unfortunate that Findlay Market was closed the one day you were in town, but rest assured you got the same amount of dishes to enjoy. We do advertise that we feature Graeter's best-selling flavor of ice cream. All our guests love it and usually return to buy more.

Wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable about Cincinnati and you could tell she had a passion for people and her city. Loved the tour because it was constantly moving.

The food was good and loved the history behind it. Loved her explanation on the development of the city culturally and physically.

Thanks for sharing on the daily Cincy Top 10 Tour. We developed this tour for first time visitors, in order to get a comprehensive overview of the city and it's history. They don't call it the Queen City for nothing. Cincinnati has a lot to see and having a local guide is vital in order to not miss a thing!

I had a fantastic time and would do it all over again. Our tour guide David, was knowledgeable about the city of Cincinnati beyond the top 10 sites and willingly answered all questions about any others sites and gave recommendations of places to visit after the tour. The tour was 3 hours; included walking, stopping for 5 different Cincinnati food treats and riding the street car. I learned so much about the history and culture that makes the city so vibrant and why David loves it so much. My visit was to get a feel of the place and to see if it's where I want to stake roots. As I told my family when I returned of the three cities I have visited this one speaks loudly.

I hope you choose Cincinnati has your new home and can join us on some of our other tours! There is so many local restaurants and neighborhoods to explore.

Jackie is a VERY entertaining and informative tour guide. My family of 3 enjoyed eating the (filling!) food and hearing about the history of the city of Cincinnati. She really did cover a ton of history. We also covered plenty of ground. The tour started at the banks and ended at Findlay Market, which is like starting in Florida and ending in Maine (for the city of Cincinatti). Of course Jackie told us exactly where the station was to get back to the other side of the city and back to our car, but we didn't do that right away there was so much to see!

Mike was very friendly, but I found this tour to be a bit slow-moving. A few of the sites could probably be cut from the tour to fit it in the 3 hour time frame. People kept leaving the group for other plans they’d made because the tour went 45 minutes later than the 3 hours initially advertised. There were also a lot of group and individual pictures taken, which I would have preferred not to do throughout the trip. The food stops were good local places, though Findlay market stop was a little rushed (however we were behind schedule). We kept missing streetcar stops so had to walk more than intended. This was not an issue except for it added time. At the end, I was already late for my next engagement and the streetcars had some issue and stopped running for a bit (not the tour’s fault). Because of this, I ended up having to walk back almost 30 minutes from Findlay market to the starting point where I parked by the Underground Railroad freedom center. Would recommend re-organizing the stops so you end closer to the starting point. Maybe Taste of Belgium first, then Skyline, head up to Findlay for goetta, then make your way back down to Holtsman’s and Graeter’s to finish the tour with the sweet foods. Very grateful that Mike called to check that I made it back to my car ok after I walked back. Lovely people, but could be organized and tightened up a bit to meet schedule.

Mike is a great guide and enjoys showing off beautiful Cincinnati! We visit 10 famous sites from the banks of the Ohio River to Findlay Market, so we depend on the streetcar. The streetcar arrives at 15 minute intervals and if we miss it twice, it's a challenge to make up the time. Occasionally it is stalled due to traffic which is unfortunate. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for sharing.
