Name Your Pleasure

A few months ago we introduced our Over-the-Rhine walking tour as an addition to our original Findlay Market tour. Once we started taking guests into the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, we realized there were specific interests that were attracting customers to our tours. Some people were curious about popular restaurants they had seen in the news or on TripAdvisor. Others wanted to explore certain areas of the neighborhood and find some hidden gems. Everyone seemed to enjoy the sweet treats!

Sweet Petit desserts, 1426 Race Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202In an effort to focus on what our customers prefer, we have designed four Over-the-Rhine walking tours, each with a slightly different focus.

Taste the World in OTR

  • Explore the trendy Vine Street corridor with its mix of casual and upscale restaurants
  • Sample foods from around the world that have become popular Over-the-Rhine favorites
  • Witness the renaissance taking place in Cincinnati’s most famous historic district
  • Walk approximately two miles.


  • Discover all that Washington Park has to offer and learn about historic Music Hall
  • Sample food at Over-the-Rhine restaurants near the Park
  • Peek at a local bed-and-breakfast
  • Walk the area in and around Washington Park, shortest distance of our Over-the-Rhine tours, approximately one mile.

Pub Tour

  • Visit bars that also happen to have great food
  • Discover rooftops, courtyards, and craft beer hotspots
  • Enjoy alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages (additional purchase required), but our main focus is on the food.
  • Walk from Over-the-Rhine into the adjoining Pendleton neighborhood, the longest distance of our tours, approximately three miles.

All of our Over-the-Rhine tours begin and end at Findlay Market and include an overview of the neighborhood and its historic character. All tours are suitable for both locals and out-of-town visitors. Dates and times of each tour vary so please consult our calendar.

As an added bonus, if you take all four of our tours, you’ll receive two free tickets to our Taste the World at Findlay Market tour. It’s the gift to yourself that keeps on giving. And the best news is that this offer never expires!

Update: As of Feb., 2022, Cincinnati Food Tours offers the Signature Over-the-Rhine Tour as the best way to experience the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
