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! « less

My family and I took a tour with John Midbo on Sunday, 7/6/14. We are a saddlebred family who knew enough that Lexington was the horse capital of the US not only for our breed/sport, but also for racing and thoroughbreds. We contacted John a few months back to arrange for a private tour so we could get a behind... More

Let's just say that everything everyone has already written hits the nail on the head. This is the way to see Keeneland and the Lexington area. Our tour with John was everything we hoped for. He was extremely knowledgeable, flexible, courteous......a great person to see the area with. He's got us convinced to return this fall for the races and... More

My wife and i visited the Lexington "horse country" with John Midbo on 06/02/2014. He is an excellent host/guide, has a very pleasant disposition and answered a few questions we hadn't even thought to ask. We recommend a tour with John for anyone wanting to know about the area, and especially, the "horse country". Kevin Baker & Lori Carper

I treated my horse-loving California wife to a Kentucky visit for horse farms, bourbon and the "Oaks." As a private guide service myself, based in Napa Valley, I researched the area and locations of points of interest to determine the best way to leverage our limited time with a list of "to-do's" in totally unfamiliar territory. The join-in group tour... More

My girlfriends and I had the pleasure of touring the bluegrass with John. He is so very knowledgeable about the area and the history.

My wife and I had the pleasure of taking a tour of the Lexington area with John. After a few minutes it was like taking a tour with somebody you knew your whole life. The tour of Keeneland racetrack and the surrounding areas along with the local history was just the start to a great day. Along the trip to... More

John Midbo provided us with a great private tour of Keeneland Race Track and Claiborne Farm. John is most knowledgeable about the area farms, horse racing industry and local lore. He was very flexible in meeting our time frame and designing a route that was most interesting for us. It was clear when we visited places that John is well... More

John Midbo, Lexington Private Tours, was recommended by a friend. Boy, did we luck out! John was so perfect for our needs. He met us at our B&B near Midway. As we planned, we had breakfast at Keeneland (what a delicious bargain - John's suggestion), and he gave us a tour there. From there we went to Claiborne Farm and... More
