Foodie in OTR
, Sep 2021
I truly enjoyed the food tour but loved seeing the newly updated and revitalized OTR area!!! I learned a lot about the history of Cincinnati on the tour from our fabulous tour guide, Laura.
Excellent tour for locals and visitors alike

What a great way to explore OTR! I lived in Cincinnati for 10 years before moving away. It's fantastic to see the downtown development. It was an easy way to hit up several places that I wouldn't have had time to get to in a short visit. My friend who grew up in Cincinnati thoroughly enjoyed it too. We got an in-depth history lesson by someone who clearly loves the city while strolling through the beautiful historic neighborhood. Our food stops were delicious. I appreciated all the recommendations for other places to check out on our own. I love that this small business is supporting other small local businesses. The Cincinnati pride really came through.
Fantastic Foodie Tour

Jackie is a fantastic guide. She has lots of energy and information about the city and Over The Rhine area.
Food, fun and facts

So much good food, so little room in my stomach :) I also appreciated the history of the neighborhood, buildings, and notable locals from the past.
Fabulous way to spend a Saturday afternoon
, May 2021
Jackie was fabulous. The food was very good and she was very knowledgeable on Cincinnati history. The only criticism I would make would be that Philly Cheese steak sandwich is not ethnic but due to COVID a lot of the restaurants that they would have used were closed.
Take this Ethnic Food Tour!!
, May 2021
This was our first time doing a food tour and we LOVED it! Jackie was so knowledgeable and made the history of the area come to life. Just the right amount of history and food. The food tastings were terrific - all delightfully served and delicious. No rushing. Nice assortment of choices. The only thing that made this tour even better was that we had glorious weather.
Jackie was very knowledgeable

I did this tour with friends to be 'tourists' in our own town, and it was interesting and enjoyable. Laura, our guide, fit a lot of information about local history and characters into our walk. The selection of restaurants was great - and not just for the food. It really gave you a sense of what the older buildings and architecture have to offer in the revitalized areas of OTR. We barely fit all six stops in, but the actual walking is pretty minimal, and along the way you keep passing other places you want to go back to. One small cocktail was included at the end of our tour, but you could order drinks at every place you stopped - which is probably why we ran a bit short on time. To be faster, bring cash so you can pay for drinks and tips without waiting for change or for a server to run a card. You will definitely not be hungry when you are finished, but you may just decide to stick around for music and drinks at one of the great bars in the area. Whether you live here or are looking for something to do with visitors or are a visitor yourself, this is a great way to spend an afternoon and support fantastic local eateries at the same time.
