Tom G. our tour guide did an excellent job. Learned a lot about the history of bourbon and Louisville. Enjoyed Makers Mark the best. Lunch was average. It was nice not having to drive. Worth the money. But if I did go back I would pick a distillery and just go for the tasting. Bourbon is basically made the same... More

If you're visiting the bourbon trail, I highly recommend Mint Julep Tours. Debbie, who reserved the tour booking, was excellent, answering questions promptly, processing payments quickly, and offering tips for putting together our custom tour for extended family. We visited three distilleries: Buffalo Trace, Four Roses and Woodford Reserve (Buffalo Trace was our favorite distillery - the most beautiful grounds,... More

Tour guides did an excellent job! Especially enjoyed the Makers Mark tour, as it is a smaller distillery and we were able to more easily understand the entire distilling process. Also, lunch was a wonderful surprise--was not expecting a hot meal with home-made food! Thank-you again!

You visit two destilleries on this tour and the visits are fine. But I find the price of $99 too high. The visits themeselves cost $9 and $10 so you pay $80 for transportation and guide.

A friend and I went on two open bus tours to Kentucky bourbon distilleries - each day visiting two distilleries. We had two separate tour hosts on the buses for the two days so there was not much redundancy. The tour hosts had very different styles. One talked all the time, told lots of jokes (some good, some not so... More

Met our tour at the Galt house hotel, for an on time departure. Visited Woodford Reserve and Buffalo Trace distilleries. Both properties gave excellent tours. Of course the tasting at the end of the tour is the highlight. Lunch was at the Woodford inn in Versailles, Addie's restaurant was charming. Our guide and driver kept us well informed and on...

Mint Julep went above to make the Bourbon Trail Tour so much fun ! If you book please ask for Shannon and ask to have Phil as your tour guide. Phil was funny and more knowledgeable then some of the tour guides at the distillery's. A+++

I planned a bachelor party for 14 guys and we had an amazing time. I highly recommend Mint Julep if you are considering a Bourbon Trail experience! I worked with Chasta a few months out and she was very helpful in giving suggestions for which distilleries to go to near Lexington, which is where we were staying. Once I picked... More

Gary Lewis is an excellent tour guide! Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable of KY, Bourbon, and fun. I recommend this tour to locals and out of town guests too. Makers Mark is unlike any other. Bring snacks for the ride home to Louisville.

We had a great time, our driver John was the man! We did not go with the tour guide on the bus with us but felt that John provided adequate information and anecdotes for us. We went to Willett Distillery, Heaven Hill and Maker's Mark and it was an absolute blast. John was also very accommodating if anyone needed to... More
