“Great Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

The Underground tour is a fun and interesting tour in Cincinnati. It gave a great perspective on the history of the Over-The -Rhine area of Cincinnati. Very interesting and fun. Worth doing if visiting Cincinnati.

“Informative tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

This was such an interesting tour...learned a lot about the city I live In! Guides were wonderful. Nicely paced tour. Actually we have now been on 3 tours organized by this company, American Legacy Tours. We did this tour, the Civil War Tour, and the Newport Gangster Tour. All were excellent, led by enthusiastic guides, and very informative. Highly recommend these tours to visitors in Cincinnati along with people who live in the area.

“Walk through History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

The tour is absolutly amazing! I love Cincinnati history and the fun part starts in Over the Rhine Brewery District. You get to walk through tunnels dug under roads where they would transfer the beer and in deep caverns where it was stored. If you have a few hours in the afternoon to spare it is truely worth the experience.

“Who knew Cincinnati is full of underground beer tunnels?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

This tour was loads of fun, with great energetic guides. Learn about the history of Cincinnati's Over the Rhine neighborhood from the 1850s through Prohibition. Tour the underground tunnels where beer was brewed and stored. See the old nightclubs (some haunted!) and tenements that made up the old German neighborhood. A bit strenuous with narrow, steep stairs down into the bowels of Cincinnati. Have a brew at a local bar after the tour, if you are so inclined. The company also has "ghost tours" and a "gangster tour" of, I think, Newport KY.
