Deep fried pretzels with homemade beer cheese
On your 3-hour walking tour of beautiful Mainstrasse Village located in Covington, Kentucky, step back in time and experience life in the 1800's. At 10:30 am you will meet your guide and begin a stroll through the village, which is on the National Historic Register, where you will see a German clock tower with a working glockenspiel, a German fountain, overhead trains, tree-lined streets with park benches and cobblestones. The buildings date back to the mid 1800's and the atmosphere is like a quaint European village. Your tour guide will educate you on the history of the area, the architecture and provide insight into the individuals who own and operate the food venues.

Sample foods from family owned restaurants only - never national chains. The food tastings you enjoy will contain locally sourced food from Kentucky and neighboring Cincinnati such as homemade German Bavarian pretzels with homemade beer cheese dip, a local craft beer from one of the numerous local breweries such as Braxton Brewery in Covington, Kentucky, a gourmet chili cheese hotdog featuring a Tex-Mex style chili made with Cincinnati goetta, assorted slices of NY style pizza, a homemade dessert such as apple crème brulee, bourbon pecan pie, apple pie, flourless chocolate cake and a generous serving of Ethiopian coffee. At the end of the tour around 1:30pm, you will have enjoyed the equal of a full lunch.

We can accommodate vegetarians, but we cannot accommodate food allergies or gluten-free (please specify dietary restrictions in the special requirements field at the time of checkout). A standard liability waiver form must be signed prior to the start of the tour. Restrooms are available at every food venue. The total walking distance is a relaxing 1.25 miles on a flat terrain.
