Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour

My mom, aunt, and I ran across this tour online and decided to book it and spend a weekend in Cincinnati! The tour was SO much fun and our tour guide was amazing! We learned a lot about the history of the city and of course the food was delicious! Would highly recommend spending an afternoon doing the Cincinnati Streetcar Tour!

Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour

As soon as we booked the tour, Laura texted us immediately with the details and also asked if we had any concerns or questions. She was super professional, very friendly and knowledgeable, and took us to many wonderful restaurants. As we ate, she gave us a brief history of the city and carried poster-cards from the 1800s to compare with the current architecture of the city. She took many pictures of our group that have now become fond memories. I highly recommend this tour- a wonderful way to see Cincinnati's beautiful architecture + understand it's history while also enjoying some lovely meals and treats! Thank you Laura for an amazing experience. My family was so happy.

Cincy Brunch and Streetcar Food Tour

My family and I have loved the two tours we’ve done with Riverside. A food tour is a fantastic way to experience the city! Laura is a gracious and knowledgeable guide, and she selects a great variety of spots to enjoy. Riverside was recommended to us, and now we are recommending it to friends and family. Money and time well spent!

Mainstrasse Village Food Tour

We had a wonderful tour throughout Covington, KY. Mike was our tour guide and he did a great job of telling us about local history and making sure we experienced a nice variety of restaurants. I hope to return soon to some of these new-found great spots in Mainstrasse Village.

Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour

Fun, laid back. A real treat! Terry was an awesome guide. It was Dec 27, we had a little snow on the ground, streetcar was running great, the group was up for a fun time and Terry took us to quite a few local spots. He has relationships with many local restaurateurs so you get in, get seated, have a bite, he gives some local history, and you have a great time. Very personable and sets a great tone. I don’t want to spoil anything but you get good food, see the sites, arts and culture and you’re going to Loooove Cincinnati!

OTR Cocktail Tour

We had a fantastic time on the OTR Cocktail tour. I was able to check of several bars that I’d wanted to try since moving to the area about a year and a half ago and all of the cocktails we tried were excellent. We also got several snacks along the way to break up the drinking. Juliann our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and provided an insight into Cincinnati’s history on the walks between bars. Overall it was a fantastic value and experience and would recommend to anyone interested in the bar scene of Cincy!

Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour

Great tour with Jackie and Terry! Learned a lot about the history, culture, and FOOD of Cincinnati. We saw all the sights we wanted to see and ate tons of delicious food along the way. I was surprised at how big the servings were. I had expected a bite of this and a bite of that but after the third stop I was almost too full for more. I loved it all and after the tour was over went back to buy more to take home. Most of the food stops included water, so I would have not needed to bring my own... and there were plenty of restroom stops along the way. I would suggest doing this early in your visit to Cincinnati as it was great for learning how to get around, how to ride the Cincinnati Connector and for getting good suggestions for the rest of our stay.

Saturday Brunch Tour

We booked a Saturday Brunch tour in OTR for my birthday! It was cold but we came prepared. Laura was on point! Her knowledge of the surrounding buildings & city was very impressive! Each stop was coordinated perfectly! It was exciting to learn about the city I was born and raised in along with people who had never been. There is so much to offer in Cincinnati! Thank you!

This was the most informative food tour I've been on. David did an excellent job of explaining the history of the town and the restaurants. Highly recommend for any first-time traveler to Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Streetcar Food Tour

Absolutely loved every minute of this food tour. Our guide, Laura, was completely knowledgeable, not only about the arts, culture and history of Cincinnati, but also about all of the vegan restaurants, bakeries, and chocolate shops we passed along the way. She told entertaining stories, and pointed out lesser-known destinations. The food was amazing as well. The portions and number of food stops we made were far beyond expectations, and included both savories and desserts. I would do the tour all over again just to enjoy all the tasty treats one more time.

We had an excellent time touring the city with David. He was very knowledgeable, personable and was willing to answer all of our questions and modify the tour to our interests. We came away with an excellent sense of Cincinnati, it’s history and its people. We could not more highly recommend this tour if you are interested in getting a clear sense of what Cincinnati is like.

Ethnic Eats Food Tour

Loved the Ethnic Food Tour with our guide, Jackie. Our group enjoyed a variety of dishes, Asian, Hawaiian Asian, German, Mexican, and Lebanese. It’s hard to pick a favorite. Soba noodles, pork buns and bubble tea, a mini charcuterie tray of German specialties, Mexican crunch turtle, and Lebanese pita, hummus, and chicken. The portions were substantial, not just a tiny bite, so I will be skipping dinner tonight! I understand they mix it up with a variety of different restaurants to choose from so every tour might include different bites! As we walked through OTR (Over The Rhine) our guide, Jackie, shared some of the history of Cincinnati and its German heritage. I’m a native Cincinnatian and would recommend this tour to locals and visitors. Thanks Riverside Tours!

Cincinnati Top 10 Food Tour

We loved this tour. Darrell and I only had one day and two nights to take in the sites and sounds of Cincinnati and we are not normally "tour" people. The description of this tour on Airbnb hooked us and boy are we glad it did. What a great way to take in the sites and tastes of this wonderful town! From waffles to goetta, what a culinary treat. David was the best and we were lucky it was 28 degrees. Why, you ask? Because we were the only two on the tour and got David to answer many of our questions. It was a rare treat and we will do it again.

Brunch & Streetcar Tour

I can't recommend this enough. If you are looking for something fun and different to do for the day in Cincinnati, I highly recommend. We did the brunch and streetcar tour. Laura was our guide and she was so knowledgeable and friendly. We are already making plans for another with some of our friends!

Mainstrasse Village Food Tour

Mainstrasse Tour of Covington was top notch, it’s the first food tour I have ever done and it sets the bar very high. Laura not only knows her food and the best places to go but she knows the local history adding a layer to the tour that makes you appreciate history. The restaurants we stopped in are all locally owned, what a great way to support the local economy. Definitely will go back to have meals at all the establishments. Look forward to taking another tour with Riverside Food & Culture Tours.

A+++ Outstanding tour with Jackie! WOW! Loved learning about and seeing the history, culture, and foods of Cincinnati. We had driven around the downtown area the night before our tour and were not impressed, but with Jackie's perspective and stories, we fell in LOVE with Cincy! We give Riverside Food Tours our highest recommendation! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Thank you Jackie & Laura, we'll be back!

Had a wonderful time with Jackie on our Ethnic food tour. She was very friendly and knowledgeable! Our luck had it that myself and my boyfriend were the only ones on that tour that day so we had all the attention. This was a great value for the price and even though I have lived in Cincinnati for more than two years I definitely learned a lot and have greater appreciation for this lovely city. The food stops were great and we felt pleasantly full by the end of it. We will definitely consider doing another one of the tours for a fun date in the future.
