This Cincinnati tour combines two of our top-selling Cincinnati tours into one epic adventure! Experience both our The Nati in a Nutshell and Porkopolis BBQ & Brew tours in this jam-packed afternoon/evening filled with Cincinnati’s most iconic sites and tastes.
Explore Cincinnati’s natural beauty along the river and amazing architecture in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, while learning about its rich and diverse history.
Your adventure starts at historic Findlay Market, where you’ll be led past tantalizing local produce, fresh meats and baked goods. Before departing, we’ll stop for a tasty treat or two. Leaving the market, we’ll hop on the ultra sleek and modern streetcar for a short ride to one of Over-the-Rhine’s favorite areas, Washington Park. Amidst the beautiful architecture, historic landmarks and playful water features, we’ll hear about the amazing revitalization of this area.
All aboard the streetcar to view unique architecture and colorful art murals on the way to downtown where we’ll tantalize your taste buds with another taste or two of Cincinnati’s culinary favorites. Next up, hold on to your hat as we quickly ascend 45 floors to the observation deck of the Carew Tower for fantastic views of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and, if we’re lucky, Indiana. After strolling through the delightful Fountain Square area, we’ll walk 4 blocks to ‘the Banks’ riverfront development complete with trendy eateries, a riverfront park and two stadiums dedicated to the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals.
Outside the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center we’ll have a once in a life-time opportunity to touch a piece of the Berlin Wall. A few steps away, one of Cincinnati’s most beautiful and fun-filled Riverfront parks begs to be explored! We’ll meander through its gardens and quirky water features with the mighty Ohio River as our backdrop!
Our Cincinnati tour will continue with a flight of craft beer at a beer bar situated on the Ohio River, whose namesake emigrated from Bavaria to America in 1841 and whose beers were rewarded with top honors.
Next we’ll walk a block to catch the streetcar again and head back to Over-the-Rhine, one of the most unique urban neighborhoods in the country and famous for having the nation’s largest collection of 19th-century Italianate architecture. This is the place to go for trendy eateries and eclectic bars aplenty. After picking up our BBQ meal, we’ll walk less than two blocks to our next stop, a brewery that in their words, “has a passion for brewing tasty beer that sings with flavor” for our picnic style feast and a flight of craft beers to wash it down with. Decked out with a rooftop area for when the weather is nice, corn-hole boards (that’s okay if you’ve never heard of them) and ping-pong tables, you’re guaranteed to have a brew-tastic time!
We’ll take a short ride on the streetcar to our final destination, a mid-1800s beautifully renovated church transformed into a Brew Pub, where you’ll admire the stunning architecture and walls adorned with photographs of the only United States president born in Cincinnati. Throughout the tour, you'll hear stories about Porkopolis, beer and other fun facts.
Whether you are a first-time visitor or have lived in Cincinnati your entire life, you will learn something new on this fun tour. Feel free to use your all-day streetcar ticket to head back to your accommodation or stay on at the brewery for another libation.
