Description: Coming to Lexington soon? There are three ways to see this very beautiful...
Coming to Lexington soon? There are three ways to see this very beautiful part of the world: 1. Do it yourself with maps, perhaps a GPS, and a lot of patience. 2. Take a public tour and join 15-20 fellow visitors on a pre-planned tour of the area. 3. Take a private tour, planned by you and your guide, based on YOUR interests. You'll tour in the comfort of YOUR OWN VEHICLE. Your guide can drive so you can soak up the scenery, but that's entirely up to you. If #3 sounds good to you, that's where we can help. Our tours range from as little as 4 hours, to a full day, or more - depending on your interests and budget. Start your planning early. That gives us time to learn about you and your interests and create a proposal for you. You're coming to one of the most beautiful and interesting places you've ever been!

John provides an excellent service and is extremely knowledgeable about Lexington and horse racing. We spent an entire day touring the race track at Keenland, had breakfast at the track and toured two farms, Claiborne Farms and Winstar. Got to see some remarkable stallions including this years winner of the Triple Crown sire Pioneer of the Nile! John took us... More

We would highly recommend John for folks who want to relax in your own vehicle while he drives and shows you beautiful horse country, explains the industry, and gets you onto farms that are not easily accessed. He's friendly, very knowledgeable and highly professional. We spent the entire day touring the horse farms and also a distillery and came away... More

This tour was a great way to start our trip to Lexington. So many of the things we did after the tour tied in with the things we learned on the tour. John was an informative guide. We look forward to visiting Lexington again soon!

Spent about 4.5 hours touring horse farms and Keeneland, including breakfast at the track kitchen. This was all a great experience. The tour guide was highly knowledgeable and very friendly and accommodating. He loves Lexington and loves showing off the area. He picked us up right from our rented house, and drove our car around the area for a great... More

If you love horses as we do, this is the perfect way to see Lexington. John is very personable and knowledgeable and gears the tour to your interests. Starting the day at Keeneland with breakfast among the locals and watching the horses at their morning workout on the track was great. The drive to Claiborne farms on the back roads... More

My tour with John was the highlight of my vacation! Everything was perfect, from the lovely gift bag at the beginning to our tours of Keeneland and Claiborne Farm. John is knowledgeable and friendly, and I can't imagine a better guide.

We loved our morning with John. Pleasant and personable, he drove us to Keeneland, where we had breakfast, then toured the main building while he educated us about this wonderful racing facility. I would have been quite happy to sit and watch the horses for hours! Next up was a lovely drive through horse country, while he showed us various... More

We had a fabulous day with John Midbo touring Keeneland and horse farms. He is very knowledgeable of the area. We are native Lexingtonians and learned facts we did not know. Great fun!

Our tour with John Midbo was was the best! He is so knowledgable about everything from history to current happenings in the horse business as well as anything else we thought to ask him about. He took us to Keenland for a great breakfast and then a tour of the stables and track where we watched the thoroughbreds being exercised.... More
