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!

After our days at the races, John spent the morning with us giving us overview information about horse racing in Kentucky, then breakfast and a tour of Keeneland, where we could take close-up pictures of horses as they were worked out. We also enjoyed a drive through beautiful rolling countryside, and our morning concluded with a visit to Claiborne farms,... More

Our tour with John Midbo and Lexington Private Tours was one of the highlights of our trip to Kentucky...and we went to the Derby, so that's saying a lot. John was professional and passionate from the moment I booked him for my Continuing Education group from U.W.-Waukesha. Not only did he share his love of "all things Lexington...and horses" on...

From the start John was informative and knowledgeable. He recommended a few things to do and we let him know what we had in mind and he tapered the tour to fit our schedule. We met him at Keeneland at 8:30 and had breakfast at the track kitchen, then drove over to the grandstand and went down to the rail... More

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our private tour with John Midbo. He is so knowledgeable. I feel like we learned everything there is to know about the wonderful horse country in and around Lexington. He is so pleasant to be with and an excellent driver.

A friend and I booked a private horse farm tour with John Midbo of Lexington Private Tours. He was excellent! John knows his stuff, was very informative and very easy to converse with. He picked us up at our hotel and took us for breakfast at Keeneland Track Kitchen, a tour of Keeneland, a drive through Donamire Horse Farm, a... More

Other reviewers give you the gist of our tour with John--where he took us and what we did. His tour is so much more than the "where" and "what," though. As another reviewer said, it was truly the "highlight of our Kentucky vacation." John is very congenial while also being knowledgeable about the horse business, the Keeneland Racetrack, the farms,...

John is just the best! He suggested an itinerary, and arranged everything for us. John met us at our hotel and took us through Keeneland and to Claiborne Farm. He is knowledgeable, patient, and kind. At the end of our tour, he presented us with a gift bag full of Kentucky goodies. . . . a very thoughtful touch. TOP... More

We were introducing long time TX friends to Lexington area. We spent the morning with John Midbo of Lexington Private Tours. He was most informative of the thoroughbred industry in KY. We ate breakfast at Keeneland Track Restaruant and watched the horses exercise. From there we drove to Claiborne and also spent time in the countryside around Lexington. We were... More

We would highly recommend doing the Lexington Private Tours with John Midbo the tour was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the horse farms, and other facts about Lexington. We were able to see a lot more of Lexington with his tour rather than doing the driving ourselves. We went to Keeneland, Claiborne Farm, also another horse farm. We wanted... More
