This tour was a unique experience and it was wonderful to have "inside access" to some of the most beautiful Kentucky horse farms and the Keeneland Racetrack. We had a fantastic day and our guide was so sweet and gracious. This tour is a MUST DO for any horse lover visiting the Lexington/Louisville area :)

I went on a great behind-the-scenes tour at Keeneland Race Course. We visited Wal-Mac & Millennium Farms. Both were great visits, I could have stayed all day. I always have a lot of fun "on the road:, and I am very glad I drove from Central New York through Appalachia to Lexington. My experiences, enjoyment, and appreciation of the way... More

We live in the area and have taken a tour in the past with another company. We took our out of town guests this time. This tour guide was much more knowledgeable .....full of interesting details and trivia about the area. He made the trip very enjoyable.

My sister and I took a tour with Horse Capitol Tours in October of 2011. Our driver was extremely knowledgeable about Lexington and the surrounding area. We stopped at Keeneland and watched the horses working in the morning and were able to go through the upper levels of the grandstand and see where the "swells" are during the races. We... More

A small group of friends and I took the "Horse Lovers Tour" and it was a truly memorable day. We visited several famous thoroughbred farms and also visited Keeneland Race Course, where we saw the horses during their morning workouts. It was fascinating to get that close to these race-winning champions. We're going to do the Horse Capital Tours "Champion... More
