American Legacy Tours strives to make history engaging and entertaining for everyone. Our goal is to enlighten and engage groups of any age through well-researched and witty storytelling.

The idea originated between a close-knit group of friends in 2008. The “Newport Gangster Tour” initially opened as a fundraiser for student travel in 2009 and was met with rave reviews. The group decided to take it a step further, making the tour available every weekend between May and November in 2010 by creating American Legacy Tours. The “Newport Gangster Tour: Gangsters, Gamblers and Girls” has become wildly successful and is noted as the Best Walking Tour in Greater Cincinnati by Cincinnati Magazine, as well as one of the top things to do in the state of Kentucky by Southern Living Magazine.

With the burgeoning success of their first tour, the group expanded into the Gateway District of Cincinnati with the Queen City Underground Tour. This German Heritage tour takes urban spelunking to a whole new level and explores the history of Over the Rhine in Cincinnati.

The Civil War Cincinnati Tour has been added to the list of options, and this tour examines the connections between the Queen City and the War Between the States.

Every October, we cross over into the paranormal with two ghost tours: Queen City is Haunted, and Newport is Haunted. Following the success of the The Newport is Haunted Tour, the group wrote and published a collection of ghost stories in Newport is Haunted: Legend and Lore.
