About Lexington Private Tours
COVID SUGGESTION: If you're a bit nervous about joining a public tour with a vanload of strangers, consider a private tour where YOUR group is the ONLY group there is! 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!

John is the consummate tour guide to the Beautiful Horse Farms in and around Lexington. He is very knowledgeable, easy to listen to and he is a great photographer as well. My friend and I took his tour this past Saturday and we thoroughly enjoyed the private tour and all John had to share with us. He took us to Keeneland, and then to the Claiborne Farm. We learned so much talking with John and came away from from the tour feeling more enlightened about the Thoroughbred Race Horse Industry, and excited to have met and seen some of Claibornes Farm's more beautiful and valuable Stallions. It was also wonderful to visit the final resting place of the great Secretariat, and to learn more about his retirement and the foals he sired. I would highly recommend choosing John for any future tour of the Lexington Thoroughbred Farms in the Lexington area.

John Midbo was a great guide through the Blue Grass country. Our trip included breakfast at the Keeneland Cafe, which is great food and the place to see jockeys, trainers, and other Keeneland personnel. This was fun. We then toured Keeneland and watched as horses trained. John explained how the training worked and how important it was to follow the directions of the trainer. Keeneland is beauritful and unique in horse tracks. I will leave that secret for John to explain to you. John was patient and answered all our questions, no matter how small or silly! After Keeneland, we went to Clairborne Farm a 5th-generation family-owned horse farm. John and Billy (staff of Clairborne) were knowledgable, enthusiastic about the horse, and fun. It is amazing to learn the lineage of horses and how many came from Clairborne! We had a great day.

John is an amazing tour guide! We really appreciated him driving our car so we could enjoy all the scenery as we visited various places in Lexington. He was both knowledgeable and very professional. I wish I could find a "John" in every city I visit. I loved that he sent us pictures of our tour after we finished.

I have lived in Lexington 20 years but decided to take a tour with John when my family came to visit from the UK. I learned so much about the wonderful town I live in and thoroughly enjoyed the morning tour of Keeneland and Claiborne farm. John was a delight to spend time with. My family also enjoyed John’s insight and knowledge of our beautiful State.

John was AMAZING!! If you want to relax in your own car, while enjoying the scenery and history around you, book him! Honestly wished we booked him for 2 days instead of one. He was so knowledgeable and could tell he had such passion for his community which made the trip all the more enjoyable. He had great suggestions when we originally booked with him about which farms to visit and in which order. Even told us where to go to purchase tickets, etc.. When we arrived at our places you could tell he was a respected member of the community, everyone knew his name and came over to say hi. John even took pictures for us (asked first) so we didn’t have to fumble with ours while getting to pet horses and/or worrying about missing something. We hope to one day come back and book him for more experiences!
