Leslie did an outstanding job of making this a most enjoyable and informative tour. First of all, you get picked up at your hotel which is just awesome! We learned a lot about Louisville and got to taste many things like different flavors of KY bourbon, 3 cheese grits, hot brown pizza, Benedictine samich, derby pie, and those are just... More

I am surprised by the previous review, but note that this reviewer had essentially negative reviews for all of his/her visits in Louisville. My experience with City Taste Tour was absolutely wonderful! Although it was a cold and rainy day, Leslie's warmth and excitement for her city made this a memorable experience! Each site - a confectionery, a state park,... More

Awww... and I had been having such fun responding to reviews. Well, firstly I am so glad you liked me. That reminds me of that 1985 Sally Field Oscar speech, "You like me... you really like me!" I just showed my age didn't I. 49... by the way. I'm glad I was informative and made you enjoy the tour. I... More

After a bus tour in Nashville that led two of our group to say they would never again take another city bus tour, our experience in Louisville changed all that. The time we spent and the places we visited were all great. The down side was that we may were so attracted that we spent money at each of our... More

This was our first trip to Louisville . We had heard that it was a fun place to visit with many good restaurants.we stayed at the Residence Inn thinking that the NULU area would be outside our hotel. It was but not very developed and at night a bit scary. The City Taste Tour with Leslie as Our guide saved... More

So sorry to hear that the Residence Inn wasn't exactly where you guys thought it would be. You are right, it's a little further out of that NuLu area than you would think. I'm glad I was able to make it all better! I'm also happy I was able to confirm the "fun-ness" of our city. Louisville is a hidden... More

It always makes me feel good when I am able to surprise and please folks who are either local or have been to Louisville quite a few times. I try to find places that are new. I really love stops that are quirky. And, if other people don't know about it, it makes me even happier. Recently I've been stopping... More

This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and went out of her way to answer our questions . They pick you up right at your hotel and deliver you back afterwards. We got to see a variety of sights and taste great local foods. I would highly recommend this company!

Yes... questions are always welcome! In most cases though I have found that folks tend to ask the same 5 or so questions on every tour... which makes me look far smarter than I actually am. :) I figured after a few years of giving tours that as long as I knew those five answers I was sitting pretty Now,...

The Hot Brown Pizza is amazing isn't it?! I run tours pretty much every day... twice a day... and we offer pretty much the same tastes on every tour. The only taste I have not eventually gotten tired of is that darn pizza! I'm pretty much convinced that it is the sole reason for my last 20 pounds....... And the... More

Had a wonderful time with Leslie and our group on this four hour tour. Great overview of Louisville that should be the first thing you do when you get into town. Jealous of all the great restaurants I couldn't try. Very informative. Thank you!
