We were two couples who have wanted to see the bourbon trail for some time. I booked with Mint Julep so we could all have a good time and not worry about driving. There were 21 people on the bus for the public tour on a Saturday. We did the tour and tasting at Maker's Mark and Jim Beam and... More

We had a great time with Mint Julep Tours visiting the various distilleries. Joni and Larry were especially great, personable, and knowledgable, and Chuck is a great guide for anyone also interested in everything horses and racing. This is a great way to see 3-4 distilleries in a single day without finding a DD to drive you around. We spent... More

I contacted Mint Julep Tours to set up a Bourbon Trail Adventure as a Christmas gift to our parents. All living locally in Kentucky we had never taken advantage of one of these trips. We had a group of 8 and wanted a private tour, and Chasta was excellent in giving recommendations after I gave her our initial idea. We... More

My wife and I were two of 15 people who chose to go with Mint Julep Tours on Saturday January 7th to visit 4 different distilleries south of Louisville. We met at the Galt House hotel and was greeted by Chuck who turned out to be our tour guide. It was obvious from the start that Chuck loves his job.... More

On December 30, we took the tour that includes Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey and Buffalo Trace. Charlie was a wealth of information and fun to listen to. Don, the driver, had many cool facts to add as well. Everything was taken care of as far as admissions, tours and lunch so all we had to do was show up and... More

We loved our tour with Charlie and Mint Julep, and we would definitely consider another tour with them. Charlie is very knowledgeable and passionate about bourbon and Kentucky, and it came through in his tour. We learned so much about bourbon - the history, science, how it is made etc., and I now look at bourbon a lot differently. Our... More

A lovely visit to Churchill Downs, filled with a track tour, a visit to the museum and lunch at the Derby Café. Even if you are not a horse lover, you will enjoy this visit. Make sure to see the movie. Lunch was delicious! If you are a horse lover, seeing American Pharoah at Coolmore Ashford farm was the highlight.... More

We know how to have a good time and we did. Although our guide for the Mint Julep Tours was pleasant, she was ill prepared and ill informed. Having said that it not deter our group of friends from having a wonderful time.
