Cincinnati Food Tours

Locally owned and operated since 2012 


Support multiple local small businesses with one experience.

Cincinnati Food Tours is ready for you! At this time, we are offering tours at Findlay Market as well as our Beyond the Market, Over-the-Rhine, and Wyoming tours. We are eager to design custom tours for private groups and team building, too. If you have something in mind, don’t hesitate to contact us.

As thrilled as we are to offer live experiences, we are restarting thoughtfully. We want to protect our customers, support community efforts to control the spread of the virus, and get Ohio back to work. In order to help you feel confident when booking a tour, we have put the following guidelines in place:

  • Guides wear masks. Starting July 9, everyone who goes inside a business open to the public within the city of Cincinnati will have to wear a face covering. Even though our tours are primarily operating as outside activities, we would like everyone to come prepared to follow the local ordinance.
  • Group size is limited to 10 or fewer people per guide.
  • All tours are designed primarily as OUTDOOR experiences with careful attention to physical distancing. In some instances, we may offer an opportunity to take a look at an inside space when picking up our food sample. Of course, you may choose to wait outside, and we’ll bring the sample to you.
  • Food and drink samples are prepared and served by merchants or restaurant staff in accordance with the latest Health Department regulations.
  • If, for any reason, you decide you would rather not join us after booking, you may choose to reschedule to a future date or convert your booking to a gift card.
  • In case we decide to cancel due to rain, we will contact you directly to discuss rescheduling or converting to a gift card.

Cincinnati Food Tours specializes in custom designed group tours. For a limited time and as an incentive to get your group together, we are currently offering a BUY 7, GET 1 FREE promotion. Great for birthdays, team building, and friends and family longing to be together again! Call Barb at 513-602-5602 to pick your date and time.

About Us

I found my passion at historic Findlay Market when my husband Barry and I opened our fresh produce and specialty shop called Daisy Mae’s Market. I discovered that our store was just the starting point for sharing our love of food and connecting with the Greater Cincinnati community. I launched Cincinnati Food Tours in 2012 as a way to introduce visitors to Findlay Market, share culinary experiences, and spread my enthusiasm for the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Cincinnati Food Tours continues to grow, exploring new neighborhoods and adding new small business partners. I invite you to join us as we share food, culture, and history one step at a time.
