Overview

This is not your typical boring tour. Hop on our completely wacky bus for a 3 1/2-hour historical tour of Louisville. All along the way sippin’ bourbon, local wine, beers and tastin’ local food. From the comfort of your seat on this crazy tour, you’ll cruise through the country’s largest display of Victorian mansions as you head to your stop at historic Churchill Downs. The "Everything You Should See, Know & Taste While You're in Louisville" tour is offered both morning and afternoon and is a fun combination of sightseeing, tasting, history and stories of Louisville and numerous stops into different neighborhoods, well known landmarks and quaint local Mom & Pops. It will provide you with a great overview of the city including little tastes of foods and drinks unique to Louisville; Benedictine, Derby Pie, a fun twist on the Hot Brown, Mint Julep, Honey Bourbon and even more tasty surprises. We strive hard to give our guests a real overall "taste" of the city and a very fun time!

We had a great time but would have liked more time at Churchill Downs , plus a bit of instruction as to where to watch a race and maybe less time at candy stores. The food and refreshments were awesome and guides lots of fun!
