Eric was great, nice and loud so everybody could here. He was also very accurate on his description of the entire White Sox team, and Cincinnati Reds team.


Our guide, Martin, is a great story-teller. We walked through the downtown area near the ballpark while he explained the details of the Black Sox/Cleveland world series and pointed out locations involved in planning the fix. The tour was very informative and entertaining. Had a great time.


Very informative and interesting! Martin is awesome and knows his stuff! Great way to kick off our day before a Reds game.


Guide knew all details of the story. Knowledgeable, friendly accommodating. Jccncmcjcnccncncncncncxmf d xx c c f c


The guide was great he knew the history of baseball in Cincinnati, however it just felt like a walk around the block. Was disappointed.


Such a fun walking tour. Very timely as well as we did it on the very weekend where the Sox were playing the Reds. We even ran into one of the White Sox players on the street by the Hilton where they must have been staying.


Dean was extremely knowledgeable about the baseball scandal and presented the information in an interesting manner. I also liked him pointing out some of the great architectural buildings on our tour as well. We live in Cincinnati, but have learned so much about our city on all of the American Legacy Tours that we have taken.


This was my favorite tour. Our tour guide Eric was a great story teller and had information to share I had never known and I think I’m a pretty big baseball fan! His presentation painted a perfect picture and brought the story to life for me. Highly recommend.


Eric did a fantastic job telling the history of Reds baseball and pointing out the historical sites He was engaging and considerate of the large group trying to maneuver through the rain.
