This Urban Tour Will Make You Appreciate Cincy Even More Than You Already Do

Cincinnati embodies all there is to love: professional sports, historic landmarks, unique architecture, beautiful parks, festivals, cultural arts, amusement parks for family fun, charming neighborhoods, fine dining, amazing beer... and the list could go on -- forever.

Someone new to Cincy (or, perhaps, someone who just wants to learn more about it) might have a difficult time creating a finely curated city experience. Luckily, guided tours are alive and well in the Queen City to remedy such an issue.

So alive and well, in fact, that Urban Adventures, an established tour business operating in over 150 cities worldwide, wanted to incorporate Cincy into its long list of professionally tour-able cities, creating Cincinnati Urban Adventures as a result. Thus, they contracted one of our own freelancers, Sherry Hopkins, as a guide across the urban core!

Whether you’re a local or a visitor, Sherry and her Cincinnati Urban Adventure tours educate curious patrons about a wide variety of Cincy subjects in a fun, engaging way.


One such tour, entitled Nati in a Nutshell, explores the highlights of the Queen City in a small group setting (up to 12 people). The urban adventure includes the following:

  • A sample of Cincinnati’s famous foods at the historic Findlay Market and near Fountain Square
  • A stroll through two beautiful Cincinnati parks
  • A streetcar ride that passes a selection of the city’s amazing architecture
  • An elevator ride to the top of the Carew Tower for fantastic views of three states
  • Additional highlights with information provided by the tour guide


For all you wine lovers out there (isn’t that most of us?), Cincinnati Urban Adventures in the process of developing a second tour that features wine and food tasting. Imagine rolling around the city with someone who will curate your day’s culinary events without you so much as lifting a finger. Pretty great, right?

If that’s your kinda thing (and, let’s be honest, it probably is), Sherry is working to have that one up and running for all who are interested soon.

But we won’t leave you wondering what a day with Cincinnati Urban Adventures looks like. Similar to the guided tour itself, Sherry compiled a full photo gallery of the expeditions she leads as a makeshift virtual tour to tease the service for all you lovely Cincinnati Refined readers out there.
