Owner description: 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!

Had a great time on this tour, tasting and sightseeing. It was a great sampling of the town and gave us an overview of attractions that we wanted to go back and visit more. We enjoyed the pizza we had so much that we went back there for dinner that night. Fun trip, knowledgeable guide.

City Taste Tours of Louisville, KY a wonderful way to spend a few hours with pleasant people. Leslie is the business owner and main tour guide. Her tour is unique and personable. There was a repeat guest on the tour I took and she said she was seeing different things than before. The 'taste' element is fun and different. The tastes we got were: mint juliep, honey bourbon, hot brown pizza, bourbon flavored chocolate, cookies, candy and derby pie. The tour covered a lot of ground. Saw much of downtown Louisville, out to Old Louisville w/Victorian homes and a stop over in Indiana to see the falls of Ohio. The only quibble I had was not much of a visit to Churchill Downs. You go there but it feels like you're sneaking in to take a peek instead of really seeing it. Can always go back and visit Churchill Downs Museum separately I guess. Overall I would highly recommend the City Taste tour anytime.

I experienced such a wonderful personalized group tour of Louisville, Kenticky. The tour included Victorian mansions, Churchill Downs (home of the Kentucky Derby), quaint neighborhoods and well-known landmarks. This tour had such a fine tasting element to it that included experiencing rich chocolates, local sandwiches, special pizza and a variety of Bourbons as well as a very carefully planned itinerary that consistently prioritized the best possibilities for providing a very comprehensive overview of the city. Leslie is the best!

I'm a Louisville native who went on this tour with a non Louisville native. We both LOVED the tour! Leslie is so much fun and takes risks! We went to Churchill downs and Leslie drove us right to the start line. We also went to the Cave Hill cemetery and saw really cool grave sites and learned about their meaning. :)

I wanted to tell everyone what a great tour of the city we had with Leslie on City Taste tours! We arrived into the city late in the morning and she along with her coworker Lisa came and got us so we could join the tour! Not too many people would do that! The bourbon, hot brown, Mint Juleps and wonderful places we were taken made for a great time and a warm southern welcome to the lovely city of Louisville! Definitely a fun adventure!!!
