The Queen City Underground Tour is amazing. Learned a lot about the history of brewing beer in Cincinnati. Over-the-Rhine is a great up coming. But the best thing about the tour was Chelsea. Lively, enthusiastic, engaging!! We telling our adult kids about the Tour and telling them to ask for Chelsea.

Super Tunnel Tour in OTR. Cincinnati’s history is fascinating and well-told by the tour guides. We had a big group and American Legacy Tours were terrific to work with. Our group love it!

Craig was exceptional and funny as he taught us many little-known things about the area. Getting to go to places many people haven't was extraordinary. A wonderful experience. We will absolutely be back!

Chelsea and Carl did an excellent job of taking what could be boring historical statistics and brought the city to life. Picture yourself in the late 1800s what would it be like to be living in Cincinnati Ohio as a German immigrant, in the over the Rhine neighborhood. Take this tour and you'll find out! Fantastic. Can't wait to come... More

Our two tour guides were upbeat and interesting. We learned a lot about the history of Over The Rhine and prohibition in Cincinnati. I particularly loved hearing about the tunnels under the... More
