The Cincinnati Civil War Tour's expert guides lead groups through Queen City, illuminating the people, places, and events that shaped the War Between the States. A pair of tickets whisks walking adults or children to stops at historical sites such as Memorial Hall, the Emery Theatre, and Old St. Mary’s Church. Along the way, soldier profiles add insightful perspectives into the conflict with heroic stories of the Black Brigade or the first all-German regiment, known as the “Dutch Devils,” for their expansive treks across states by jump rope. In addition, the tours unveil treasures along the route, such as Sister Mary Anthony O’Connell who earned the nickname “Angel of the Battlefield" for her developments in battlefield triage. Lasting 90–120 minutes, tours proceed rain-or-shine so the staff recommends wearing appropriate attire or bribing local meteorologists beforehand.

American Legacy Tours

Founded by a group of friends who created the acclaimed Newport Gangster Tour as a fundraiser in 2008, American Legacy Tours blossomed into a full-fledged tour company two years later. Participants choose from seven distinct tours that traverse cities as guides share fascinating and sometimes seedy history. The Queen City Underground Tour ventures beneath the city’s streets into a hidden burial vault and long-forgotten tunnels, and the Newport Gangster Tour delves into a scandalous past by visiting the sites of former brothels and speakeasies. Elsewhere, on the Haunted Covington Tour, guests feed their thirst for fright and their hunger for candy handouts from amiable apparitions.
