“Leslie gave us the perfect customized tour of Louisville.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Leslie is the epitome of a kind and fun Southern woman. Based on what we told her, she customized a tour that would be interesting to us. She gave us a history lesson about Louisville along the way. Learning could not have be more fun. I And, history is my least favorite subject in school. Unfortunately, our tour did come to an end. However, we left happy and our bellies were full of southern food and drinks. She encouraged us to keep in touch with her if we need future advice on what to do in the city. We loved her! I highly recommend this tour. Excellent in every way.

“There's a reason this is the #1 attraction in Louisville..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

..and that has to do with Leslie Burke, the co-founder and tour guide. We have yet to find a friendlier, more helpful and impassioned guide anywhere. Warning: Her enthusiasm for her hometown is so infectious that you might chuck your current life and move to Louisville. We considered it for a nanosecond and who knows, if it hadn't been such a wet miserable day when we visited, we might have done it. City Taste offered much more than the amusing local eating oddities. It gave us a glimpse into native life and left us feeling we knew Louisville in a way that 24 hours in a new place seldom does.

“#1 Tour for GREAT REASONS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

Don't really know where to start... this tour was worth every penny and a delightful way to experience Louisville for the first time. The ladies that own and operate this company are extremely knowledgable and personable. They can help you with any questions you might have as well has be a great networking connection if you are considering moving to the area. The Louisville area is absolutely beautiful, clean and abundant with things to do. We went to meet up with family and one of our grandbabys..... the shuttle bus tour they provide was a perfect solution to allow all of us to behave like tourists and not worry so much about a baby being disruptive. If you have time to work in one of these tours with THIS tour group- you will NOT be disappointed! We plan on returning and doing a few more of the tours they offer... the progressive dinner one sounds really interesting to us!

“Loved every second of it!! Leslie is so fun and the tour is very interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

My fiance and i were in Louisville for one weekend, and we scheduled the tour for a friday evening. Leslie was very flexible and willing to do whatever we wanted! She really caters to the individuals she is with. We were not really sure what all we wanted to do, and she basically got to know our personalities and did what she saw fit, which was PERFECT! She will pick you up in a cute little party bus with lights hanging down and really festive! To begin, she let us taste mint juleps which are the local favorite. She stopped at all the major landmarks and even let us jump off and go check out certain ones that we were interested in. One of my favorite stops was lynn's paraidse cafe, leslie went in and got us a derby pie to try. I also liked stopping by the louisville slugger museum and having a photo op in front of the huge louisville slugger. My fiance and i are a young couple, and we (well, he) was worried it was going to be an "old people thing to do" and even he had a blast. I can see people of ANY age having a good time. Go on this tour if you're in town... leslie is one of the most nice and genuine people i have even met in my life. Give her tour a try if you want a memorable experience in Louisville. She is so knowledgeable about the city and answered all of our questions we had.

THANKS LESLIE :)

“The new standard for city tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

If you do nothing else while in Louisville, you must spend your day with Leslie. You will learn more about the city's rich history than many of the locals can recite while tasting many local delicacies. Moreover, Leslie's hospitality was second to none. Our only regret is that we didn't do the tour when we first arrived in town so we could explore the Louisville that we learned about today.
