Be sure to start any visit to Louisville with this tour. It is great! Leslie and her team do a terrific job of showing and sharing the sights of Louisville and giving delicious samplings of the foods. We saw so much on the tour that we would have missed on trying to do on our own. Plus there were plenty of stops at major attractions and shops. So much fun! The foods were from a the latest a Hot Brown pizza, Kentucky Derby Pie, huge cookies, tea sandwich, chocolates, candies and more. Plus there were numerous Bourbon drinks to taste too, including a "Mint Julep!"
Having gone on the tour first helped us plan the rest of our visit. To us it was a major highlight of our visit to Louisville.
Be sure to take it first when arriving in Louisville!

Leslie, our guide and owner of this company, has done a wonderful job of weaving together sights, history and tastes of this city. From a mint julep and derby pie after seeing Churchill Downs to a candy shop in Indiana before stopping to view the skyline across the river, we tasted all sorts of drinks & goodies unique and special. (You don't want to start with a full stomach!) We were entertained with stories of the people who shaped the Louisville character and saw a variety of neighborhoods and locations. It was time and money well spent and I highly recommend this tour!

we were on a road trip time is always ticking by doing this tour made our visit to Louisville so rememberable.
I was only gutted we wasn't able to go in the sluggerhead museum as they were closing. However we would never have leant so much and see so much in one day and this we're so grateful the only thing I wish I had asked for was to stop at the federate graves to take in a moment of the sheer size and take a PIC to take home but that's it everything else was perfect thank you so much Oh Hot Brown Pizza should def stick around think history is in the making there.

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.
