We did 2 days of the trail with Mint Julep Tours and both days were excellent. We had great guides and bus drivers. They were informative and looked out for our needs. Even provided cups, ice, and water. We had bourbon tastings at all the distilleries and had the opportunity to purchase some bourbons we cannot get in our state.... More

I hired Mint Julep for a private tour with 3 of my friends for a 3 day trip through Bourbon Country for my 40th birthday. It's a no brainer that you need a car service to tour the various distilleries, but I wasn't sure whether a simple Uber would have sufficed. I can confirm it would not have. We had... More

If you're a bourbon lover or if you're just interested in learning more about bourbon, Mint Julep Tours is the perfect choice. We visited three distilleries and learned a ton about bourbon and the history of this quintessential American booze during our trip. My favorite stop was the Maker's Mark tour by far. Lunch at a local restaurant was delish,... More

Led by our guide Wendy and driver Tommy G, both of whom were excellent. This was a full-day of Bourbon tasting and education. Please note this is not a "booze-cruise" so if you looking for a party head down to 4th Street instead. This was the southern tour and had an "unscheduled" stop at Jim Beam, though just gift shop....

Went on here for a work-team building event. Had a great driver, narrator, and stops. First was Darley Horse Farm tour, lunch at Staxx BBQ, and then a tour of Buffalo Trace along with tasting at the end. 😊. Was a great day!

Took a tour to Maker's Mark, Heaven Hill, and Jim Beam Distilleries where we also had bourbon tastings. Our Guide also did a brief stop at the Four Roses Distillery Visitor Center & Gift Shop so we could get our "Passports" stamped and purchase items at the Gift Shop. Our guide and bus driver were excellent and very informative. We... More

The tour was interesting and informative. Our tour guide was outstanding. His name was Charlie, and he knew a lot about bourbon country and made the tour very interesting. We had to deviate from our tour schedule because of issues with one of the distilleries, which was unavoidable, and the Tour was able to book us a tour at a... More

Well organized, timely - and they delivered! The tour guides were amazing, special shout out to Joanie - she presented an excellent tour and history of Louisville. Lunches on both days were incredibly good. I cannot say enough good things about Mint Julep Tours - they did all the work, I had all the fun!

Did the 2 day tour for my birthday and this was the best trip. The guides had lots of fun and interesting stories of the city and the history of the distilleries. They even shared some of their personal stories.
