Our tour leader, Matt, did an excellent job taking us along the tour and providing historical details that really made me see Cincinnati in a different way. The interesting facts about locations and the people who lived here were not known to me. I recently returned from Italy which has such rich history and traditions. This tour brought to light the unique history that is in my own backyard. It made me appreciate what a wonderful city Cincinnati is. Thank you!
