What you'll do

Travel the world without leaving Cincinnati! If you’re looking for fun things to do in Cincinnati, this guided, walking culinary tour will introduce you to some of the best ethnic food in town. Ethnic food is the spice of life and historic Over the Rhine is home to dozens of entrepreneurs. It truly is a place where different worlds collide.
We begin our culinary journey in beautiful Washington Park, where the heart of Over the Rhine congregates. Here at the northern edge of Cincinnati, we'll share a brief history of the German immigrants who built this neighborhood from the ground up. Learn why Music Hall is said to be one of the most haunted places in the country!
We may enjoy Hawaiian inspired dishes at our first location or Thai chili noodles. Next we relax in a neighborhood bar and enjoy the best tacos in the city and conclude our urban adventure at a Lebanese restaurant for a sweet ending and a cocktail. Other dishes may include Polish pierogies, NY style or Detroit style pizza, a French macaron or an empanada.
Other things to note:
Our experience includes food, sightseeing, history, art, and architecture. We stroll through a historic German neighborhood from the 1800's. We walk about 1 mile over the course of 3 hours. Wear comfortable shoes and casual weather appropriate clothing.
Some restaurants may require a face mask to enter.
We can accommodate vegetarians only.

Laura was knowledgeable and kind. I loved feeling relaxed and not having to hurry through the tour. Go hungry! Tons of good food and fun stuff to see. Laura is easy to learn from and uses her storytelling props naturally so I never once felt like a tourist. This was a great way to explore the city and we had lots of fun afterwards with the help of Laura's guidance on what to do. I'd do it again!
