Best Bites and Sites Tour of Cincinnati-Streetcar Included
From USD 51.00
Overview
Save time and money on this excursion that includes a guided tour of Cincinnati's top sights, from the banks of the Ohio River to downtown and Findlay Market; food tastings at some of the city's best restaurants, and an all-day streetcar pass so that (armed with some insider tips from your guide) you can spend the rest of the day exploring independently.
What to Expect

The Best Bites and Sites tour combines a full morning of sightseeing, history and food!  If you want to see downtown Cincinnati, this is the tour for you!  Plus a ride on the Cincinnati Streetcar.  We begin our tour at the best known waffle restaurant in Cincinnati.  Next, take in the view of the Ohio River as we stroll through Smale Riverfront Park. Before our eyes is the iconic Roebling Suspension Bridge.  This bridge was the predecessor of the Brooklyn Bridge and it’s a beauty!

As we head north two blocks, we are surrounded by the home of the Cincinnati Reds, the first baseball team in America.  As we approach the National Underground Railroad Freedom Museum, there is a piece of history that’s too good to miss.

Next it’s time to hop aboard the sleek new Bell Connector as we head to our second tasting.  This Cincinnati favorite is so popular, that we consume over 2 million pounds a year! 

We need to work up a little appetite, so we stroll to the heart of the city: Fountain Square.  The centerpiece is a public work of art - refreshing to look at and to taste.  What??  Speaking of refreshing, it’s time to cool off with our third treat.  Yes, this is the spot that people make a beeline for as soon as they land at the airport.  It’s that good!

Right across the street is our next site, the beautiful 1920’s French Art Deco Carew Tower.  We’ll stroll inside the arcade to catch a glimpse of famous Rookwood Pottery. Did you know you can ride an elevator to the 49th floor for a view of the entire city? 

One more stop to the Contemporary Art Center.  We’ll get a quick overview and you can return anytime you like because it’s free all day!

Back on the streetcar, we head north to Over the Rhine.  We are crossing into little Germany now and we don’t even need a passport!  OTR, as the locals call it, is jam packed with restaurants, shops and bars.  And it’s the perfect location for our fourth stop.  I hope you like sweets, because these Cincinnati treats are show stoppers.

Next we walk a block west to another beautiful 8 acre park. This park is bordered by the magnificent Music Hall which has a haunted past.

It’s time to catch the streetcar for our final stop at Findlay Market, the oldest urban outdoor market in Ohio.  The market is enticing and full of fragrance and color from the ethnic foods to the beautiful produce and flowers.  You will want to linger all day and since you have an all day streetcar pass, that’s works beautifully.  But we have one more tasting.  You cannot visit Cincinnati without trying goetta.  Never heard of it?  Good, we like surprises!

Our lovely adventure through the Queen City has come to a close. We will happily return you to our starting point or, now that you got the lay of the land, you can continue on your own.  Either way, your local guide will be happy to share additional tips or answer any questions, so you can carry on with confidence!

Thanks Steve for sharing! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. You're right, chili dogs, waffles, ice cream, donuts and goetta aren't haute cuisine, but they are Cincinnati favorites! I hope you and your wife can join us again sometime on one of our other tours!
