Wendy and Don...guide and driver, respectively...were excellent. Nine hours in motion with total knowledge and professionalism. Jim Beam was the final of the three tours...and turned out to be the best. Guide Teresa "made it happen" for our group of eleven. If only the tour marketers from the other area distilleries could duplicate her energy and ability to connect so... More

We did a bourbon tour on a Saturday (from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm) and went to three different locations: Heaving Hill, Maker's Mark (the best!), and Barton. The tour was easy to book online. They were very organized. We met at the Galt Hotel which was easy to get to and find the shop. Everything was on time. Tara... More

We took the bourbon tour to Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey and Buffalo Trace. Larry was our driver and he was wonderful. Wendy was our guide and she knew a LOT about bourbon -- and thoroughbred horses! She guided us through what to expect at the distilleries, and hearing the details about bourbon making ahead of time was helpful. We had... More

This was our first time to Louisville and our experience with Mint Julep started the trip off with a bang! Although there is significant bus time to/from distilleries, both Tara and Larry added the perfect amount of history about the bourbon industry, local area and fun anecdotes to pass the the time. The distilleries themselves were all very unique and... More

Austin was amazing and knew everything there was to know about the bourbon industry and each of the distinct bourbon distilleries that we visited. Would highly recommend this company!

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
