Led by knowledgeable guides, the tour weaves through the streets of Cincinnati as guests visit historic buildings home to a litany of saloons and iconic theaters before descending below ground to explore hidden tunnels and a burial vault.
Queen City Underground
Initially designed as a temporary tour and fundraiser for student travel, American Legacy Tours began humbly as the Newport Gangster Tour in 2008. When met with overwhelming success, the friends who had embarked on what they thought was a temporary project decided to take root and expand, creating American Legacy Tours in 2010.
Their first order of business as an official company was to introduce the Queen City Underground Tour, an exploration of the city's underground tunnels and history as a rabbit village. Today, a cadre of educated guides leads 10 different area walking tours, including seasonal Spirit of Christmas Tours and Newport is Haunted Tours held around Halloween.
Queen City Is Haunted Tour
Most cities take pride in their past, preserving their historic triumphs and unusual claims to fame. The more macabre facets of municipal history, however, can take some digging to uncover. American Legacy Tours' Queen City is Haunted walking tours take the work out of supernatural explorations of Cincinnati. During each walk, expert guides expound on the murders and deaths of yesteryear, taking their charges through haunted buildings, spooky burial grounds, and the spot where they finally buried their dream of dancing. Historical episodes of interest include Cincinnati's Murder College, the phantoms that infest Music Hall, and the tale of the Tri-State area's most prolific killer.
