Mint Julep was great at accommodating our brother in law weekend in bourbon country and awesome with providing information, and adding a couple of extra stops along the way. I will highly recommend Mint Julep tour and Bob as the driver/guide!

Everyone truly enjoyed the excursion on the east end bourbon trail. Our guide Bob was awesome at going with the flow, providing information, and adding a couple of extra stops along the way. I will highly recommend Mint Julep tour and Bob as the driver/guide!

Mint Julep has set the bar very high with their bourbon tours. I took both the south and east tours and was very impressed with the quality of the guides (Wendy, Joni and Tara (a talented trainee!). They were all very knowledgeable about the Louisville area and the history of each distillery in detail. The included lunches were great, and... More

We took the South Tour and enjoyed it very much. Mint Julep is an excellent choice for a fun day. Our guide, Jodi, was congenial and very informative about the area , history and distilleries. Our driver, Kenny, was wonderful. Note: The roads near the distilleries are narrow,scenic and nothing I would want to drive after enjoying a few tastings.... More

Kentucky Bourbon Trail 4 day weekend. Wanna see several distilleries and NOT drink and drive. I know each tour with tasting isn't enough to place you over the "legal limit" but if'n you try 2 or 3 maybe you shouldn't be driving. Particularly back and forth from Bourbon country to Lu-a-vul. Enter Mint Julep Tours. They leave from a central... More

My friends and I used Mint Julep's private tour for a bachelor party weekend. We had a phenomenal time, and our tour guide, Derrick, was absolutely awesome. He was super friendly and knowledgeable. It was truly a great experience, and Mint Julep was readily accessible and willing to answer questions on the front end, and they were very flexible throughout... More

We had a great time with Mint Julep tours, and I highly recommend the bourbon country tours. We took two one-day bourbon country tours, south and east. The group went out with a guide in a small bus (or large van?), with about 20 passengers. It was a pretty manageable group, and we made friends with other people in the... More

I cannot recommend Mint Julep Tours enough! Firstly, you MUST MUST MUST ask for The amazing duo Joni and John. They were both incredibly knowledgeable about bourbon and "Louavul" and so much fun! Joni's laugh was so infectious. Took part in The Heaven and Evan tour as well as the Bourbon Trail East. Both were fantastic but the intimate setting... More

To start off, our guide was Joni and she did a fantastic job of educating us about Lou-a-ville :) and was just an easy-breezy, engaging personality. So, this was a tour where we spent time at Heaven Hill (after hours) and from there went to Evan Williams for "the experience". Both locations treated us to a delicious catered fare and... More

Our tour guide Jodi and driver Tom were great, just fabulous. Jodi is personality plus, and a true asset to the company. We came in as strangers, but left feeling like friends. Not only did we learn about bourbon, but the region in general. The only bad experience on the tour was the lunch at Kurtz. It was truly the... More
