What You'll Get


Walking tours explore intriguing surroundings at a leisurely pace, much like a photography class held in a thick bog of quicksand. Let it all sink in with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

On this 90-minute walking tour, guides lead groups of up to 60 people on a path that imparts an impression of the city as it was in the 1800s. Beginning at Arnold’s Bar & Grill, the city’s oldest continually operating saloon where barkeeps have poured drinks since 1861—including through the Prohibition, according to legend—the tour meanders through such landmarks as the Gerke Brewery cellars. Along the way, guides narrate important historical moments, such as the Courthouse Riot of 1884.

About Queen City History & Education Ltd.


Imagine standing on the courthouse steps where dozens of Cincinnatians were slain during a riot in 1884. Or looking down an unlit tunnel burrowed to sustain the black-market trade of alcohol during the Prohibition. The guides behind Queen City History & Education Ltd. illuminate both the highs and lows of Over-the-Rhine’s and downtown’s history through walking tours designed by local attorney and real-estate agent Michael Morgan, author of Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King. They also host lectures and educational seminars that promote the preservation of Cincinnati’s historical structures. To further strengthen that goal, the company donates a percentage of it proceeds to the Brewery District CURC, a nonprofit that supports the redevelopment of Over-the-Rhine. Additionally, the foundation works to preserve the area’s architectural and cultural brewing heritage by placing a bubbling cauldron on every corner.
