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!

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

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.
