What a great way to see Louisville! An interesting mesh of history, food and an absolutely charming guide (who definitely knew the city and her passion shines brightly on the tour). I live in Kentucky but not Louisville, so what I knew about the city was very much on the surface. Learning about Portland, NuLu, Butchertown and all of the great 'pockets' of Louisville was so informative and entertaining. And she doesn't skimp on the southern hospitality - both in her engaging personality as well as libations! Take the tour - you will absolutely love it!

“City Taste Tours”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

My husband and I were in Louisville for the weekend prior to him having business there the following week. We took the City Taste Tour on Saturday morning. The tour was fun, informative and allowed us to get a good overview of Louisville as well as hit many of the top tourist attractions that we would not have had time to do on our own.

Leslie is knowledgeable as well as super friendly and easy going.

We absolutely recommend this tour. It's entertaining, informative and a great value!

“Tour of my new town”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I had a friend in town from Texas and as I am new to this area we decided to tour Louisville together. It was informative and very well like by both of us. The taste we just the exact amount and the knowledge I learned was great. I saw new places that I have never knew existed here in Louisville. I already have told some coworkers about it and they plan to book too when they have guest in town. Better than trying to tour them yourself!!

“Fun informative tour”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is a must do for any trip to Louisville! Leslie is a font of knowledge regarding the city, its sights, its history, and its legends. She maintains a commentary as she drives through the city & I mean through the city. We saw almost all there is to see including from the Indiana side. She stopped at a lot of interesting places including candy stores, old town Louisville, Churchill Downs, the Slugger Museum, and a famous little cookie shop. At most stops we had samples and she bombarded us with tastes of many different bourbons & bourbon concoctions, as well as mint juleps and Louisville specialties such as hot brown (pizza) and derby pie. It was a long ride but it was broken up with various visits and lots of laughs. The only problem was that the air conditioning in the van just couldn't keep up. Great way to decide what to go back to visit after the tour.

“Lots of Sights and Lots of Tastings!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

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!
