About Lexington Private Tours
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 was the ideal tour guide for a look around Lexington. We loved hearing his insider stories as we went behind the scenes at Keeneland and Claiborne Farm as well as seeing the beautiful countryside. We enjoyed his company very much. Thx, John!

John Milbo is a very knowledgeable and obliging guide for the Kentucky horse country. He was well-known and obviously well-liked everywhere we went, and constantly available and able to answer all our questions. We highly recommend his tour.
