I love my job and I never get tired of hosting tours because every guest is different.  We laugh and talk and by the end of the tour, I feel like I've known this person my whole life!  Plus being a part of downtown Cincinnati, OH and Covington KY is so exciting right now.  The revitalization of old neighborhoods, the plethora of new restaurants, the parks, the streetcar, the river fronts and all the new residents embracing urban living, creates change every single day!  I feel blessed to be a part of it! ~ Laura

I love Cincinnati and I love good food! I moved downtown 5 years ago to experience the renaissance occurring in OTR and Downtown. Riverside Food Tours allows me to share my passion for our city’s history as well as great food choices available in the area! My favorite meal is the short rib ravioli at Sotto (YUMMY!) and my favorite place is Over the Rhine in Washington Park and Findlay Market.   ~ Jackie


I am a proud resident of northern Kentucky, sometimes known as " the south side of Cincinnati". I am the guy that friends call when they need to know where to take out-of-town guests or what new restaurants to try. Because of my interest in and love of Cincinnati, years ago I created the board game, 'Queen City Trivia". I have also been an extra in numerous films shot in the area. What I love most about the "Top 10 Tour" is that it is like "Cincinnati 101". You learn so much and see all the city's top sites while enjoying iconic Cincinnati foods. ~David



Hello! I'm a local gal who grew up in Northern Kentucky. I work in the Operations Department for Delta Airlines. I love working for Riverside Food Tours because it allows me to meet new people and see the city on foot. My favorite tour is the Ethnic Eats tour in Over the Rhine. Being a foodie, I love seeing the new restaurants open up and being a shopper, I love exploring the little boutiques and family owned shops. It's a unique cultural experience just to stroll the streets and watch all the people come and go! ~ Whitney

I am a transplant to the Cincinnati region from the Kansas City area and currently call Newport, KY home. I moved to Cincinnati for graduate school and just could not bring myself to leave! I work as the Exhibitions and Collections Manager for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and I have a Master’s in Public History—so when I say I love history, I really mean it! As a self-proclaimed “foodie,” I love the opportunity to talk with new people about all the different type of food and beverages! They say “home is where your heart is,” and my heart sure is happy and full in Cincinnati! ~ Katie


I was “born and raised” in Cincinnati and have lived in the western, northern, and eastern suburbs. But now I enjoy being downtown because Cincinnati and Covington are being totally revitalized and are absolutely glowing! I love sharing the history of both cities and taking our guests to so many of our wonderful local restaurants. All of my ancestors came from Germany during the years 1860 to 1880. My grandfather said that they found Over-the-Rhine to be too crowded, so his family actually settled in Covington, KY! With that background, needless to say, I actually enjoy a beer now and then. I can’t wait to share food, drink, and stories with you! ~ Becky



I am a retired educator who has a passion for the local history, arts and food of the Greater Cincinnati area. Although I've lived in Kentucky my whole life, I'm spending a lot more time in Cincinnati volunteering downtown. Since Cincinnati is such a foodie city, I've also made it my mission to dine out more! Riverside Food Tours is the perfect way to blend my passions and allow me to share my “new discoveries” with lots of friendly like minded folks. ~ Beth



It's fun for locals and visitors in the Cincinnati area to indulge in off-the-beaten-path neighborhood eateries. You'll love meeting and interacting with the chefs and owners.
