History, Fun and Great Beer! - Maranda made the tour so enjoyable. She was fun and knowledgeable. My wife and I learn so much of the history of Cincinnati and the history of beer and breweries in Cincinnati. She knew everyone's name and that gave the tour an personal touch. Will be coming back with the rest of our family to do the Haunted tour.

One of the best tours ever - We took a tour on a cloudy day but our tour guide (Miranda) made it feel bright and sunny. She was the best! She was funny, engaging and so knowledgeable. Had no idea about this history of Cincinnati! Tour included my 14-year-old and it was appropriate. Highly highly recommend!

A little more then just beer knowledge - We had a great tour with Harrison :) he was very knowledgeable and friendly. Good amount of history of beer & how it’s intertwined in the city. Definitely something very cool to check out if you’re in the area.

Fun Team Building Activity - We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Hidden Caverns. Scheduling was simple and easy, and the communication leading up to the tour was helpful and responsive. We had a work group of ten people, and we had a great time. The weather wasn't cooperative, but that's outside of the tour company's control, and they made sure it didn't subtract from the overall experience. The caverns are such a fascinating partt of the city's history, and people in our group who had done the tour previously still learned new facts this time around. The beer tasting at Northern Row was also a great experience. Our tour guide Miranda was fantastic! She made it a memorable experience for us with her humor, knowledge, and personal touch of remembering the names of each person in our group. I highly recommend requesting Miranda as your guide if you book a tour.
