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!

Really enjoyed our tour with John. He customized our tour to our interests to include Keeneland racetrack with backstretch breakfast and morning workouts and a great drive through the Kentucky countryside. Went to the iconic Claiborne Farms which really made my day

We toured with Lexington Private Tours today and John is a passionate, respectful, courteous, and knowledgeable guy. And we feel we have a new friend in Lexington. We began our search for a tour in July and after John's correspondence with us, we were excited to tour with him. He was most thorough in his suggestions to us which made... More

John did fabulous job of engaging non-horse people and making it magic. Some of our group were not excited about the tour but ended up saying it was best event of our long trip. Highly recommend John for a close and personalized approach. Note that he rides with you in your vehicle, it's not a canned bus tour.

Our Horse Farm tour with John Midbo was fantastic. He is a very pleasant, knowledgeable and professional person to work with. He will accommodate anything you want to do. We had taken another Horse Farm Tour several years ago and found this tour to be far more interesting and enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend or take this tour... More

Our family of 5 (kids age 15, 12, 10) stopped in Lexington for a day during our summer road trip. We wanted to learn more about the horse racing culture in Kentucky. We decided to go with John Midbo on his private tour and were not disappointed. It was only John and our family. John was very knowledgeable about the... More

We loved the time we spent with John. We learned so many things that we would have never known had we toured Lexington on our own. He was interesting, knowledgeable and fun. We also liked that being in our own vehicle as it made it more comfortable for our kids (12 and 13 yrs). I highly recommend Lexington Private Tours.... More

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!
