I recently enjoyed my third Findlay Market food tour with Barb, each equally enjoyable. It's the perfect way to introduce yourself and visitors to this historic gem! The participating vendors vary with each tour, so I've learned and tasted so much by returning. It's like a round the world tasting event. From the finest teas at Churchill's to craft chocolate...

Great to have you back again and thanks for your kind words! And so glad you mentioned Artichoke. This store has been a wonderful addition to the Findlay Market district and a go-to location for the best cookware. Seems there's always something new in the neighborhood! Hope to see you again soon!

Great gift we received. There were 5 wonderful food stops on the tour. Enjoyed our hosts and the yummy goodies at each stop. Liked our tour guide but would like a little more history. Would recommend!

We decided to do this for our work holiday outing and we loved it!! We have a lot of people with special dietary needs and they accommodated this so well!! Learned some great stuff, rode the streetcar and had some great food! I would totally do this again.

This tour is a great value -- you get several delicious food samples and a lot of historical background and personal stories of the various market vendors, for a fraction of the price of many big-ticket city food tours. We toured as a couple, one of us was born and grew up in Cincinnati and the other was a visitor,... More

We tasted at 4 different food establishments and toured the downtown area by streetcar and on foot. (we went off book slightly, which was awesome!) She takes you to places you might not find on your... More

My wife and I decided to take a walking food tour through OTR and thoroughly enjoyed our time with the group. I didn't realize it was a sweets-themed walk, but we both have a serious sweet tooth, so it was a welcome surprise. Barb, our tour guide, was very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable about all things related to the area.... More
