I started looking for a bourbon tour company rather last minute, which meant that many tour companies couldn't even accommodate us. Bourbontown Tours not only had availability, but gave us a personalized tour better than anything I ever expected. Shelby was the best tour guide and, as a local who is very well versed in food and drink spots in the area, she made multiple suggestions for after our tour (& gave us a fantastic dinner recommendation!). Shelby and her boss, Ron, both went above and beyond to make our day special, even for a procrastinator like me, and we can't wait to schedule another trip with them. If you're looking for a less commercial, thoughtfully customized bourbon tour, then I can't recommend this company enough.

Thanks so much, Jessica. Shelby is relatively new to our industry but her knowledge and caring for her guests is beyond reproach. Thanks very much for the great view. We look forward to showing off Bourbon Country to you again.

With Covid rules, we wanted to make sure with our son’s bachelor party of 10 were all prebooked on their bourbon tours. My husband found Ron at BourbonTown Tours online. He was so great to work with! He had several great ideas, other than the distillery’s, that he thought the guys would enjoy. One of their favorites was Blue Grass Carting which was fast paced adult go carts. We definitely benefited from Ron’s inside knowledge of who was open, how many were allowed, etc and his attention to detail and planning to pull off a trip of a lifetime for our son and his friends! He arranged lunches and even sent out the waivers from the go carts in advance to ensure no time was wasted on their trip. Spacious, clean bus. Don’t look any further, book with Ron, you will be very happy you did!

He went he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted.

Ron and BourbonTown Tours were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable of the Bourbon trail and were able to point us in the right direction. Our tour guide (Jon French) was amazing and I couldn't be more complimentary of him.

If you're looking to take a trip to the bourbon trail, I cannot recommend BourbtonTown Tours enough. My wife, friends and I enjoyed it and are already talking about a return visit.

After deciding to visit Kentucky on our roadtrip and while researching tours on our own, we happened to find BourbonTown Tours. It was the best thing we could have done. They prepared three days of tours for us. I was very impressed with Ron Freeman and tours he planned for us. We were very pleased and impressed with the driver/tour guide he assigned to us for our three days. We could not have asked for anyone better. He was very pleasant and sociable and also very informed on the places we were to visit. We would not have been able to do what we did on those three days on our own. I would highly recommend BourbonTown Tours and especially Jim Brewer as a driver/tour guide.

We chose BourbonTown Tours for our group's first visit to the Bourbon Trail in Louisville, KY. Shelby responded to our inquiry - she was responsive and accommodating, coming up with several options based on our budget.
Our driver and tour guide was Kristi (Shelby's mom!) and she was excellent. She kept us on track, was a wealth of knowledge with valuable tips at every stop, accommodated an additional stop at a gift shop we were interested in, and overall made our tour successful. She was flexible to our needs and did so with a smile. She also provided water and snacks! I would highly recommend BourbonTown Tours to anyone looking to tour Louisville-area distilleries.

My wife and I and another couple visited Bardstown, KY Jan 2021 and this tour was perfect for us. Chris was a great tour guide. Prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, funny and all-around great host. We did Limestone, Bardstown, Barton with a quick stop at Heaven Hill because we had time and Chris was just that kind. His knowledge of Bourbon, local history and his love for sharing it with people really set this apart for us. The van was spotless and comfortable. Lunch was amazing and BourbonTown tours is true southern hospitality. We’ll be booking again with these folks on our next trip through Bourbon country.

While Ron Freeman orchestrated an amazing tour package experience for us; it was Fred Graham (our tour guide and driver) who made the experience worth repeating for anyone who books. We appreciate the little tips and alternative eating spot we ate at during our experience. We will definitely be returning to explore more of bourbon country with BourbonTown Tours. Cheers.

Working with Ron was an absolute pleasure! He will be who we see the next time we hit up bourbon country! He worked with us to truly create a custom event that worked with in the time constraints of our schedule. His prices were reasonable and everybody on the tour loved interacting with him. He’s a local who knows some unique stops that not every company makes/advertises. Don’t go anywhere else!

We booked Bourbon Town Tours for a virtual corporate bourbon tasting event, and they did an excellent job. They were very easy to work with, took care of all the shipping logistics, and were very knowledgeable for the tasting experience. All of our clients gave the event rave reviews! Hopefully we'll be able to make it to Kentucky to do their in-person tours some day!
