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!

We recently took the City Sights and Kentucky Sweets Tours with City Taste Tours. We had the time of our lives as we ate ourselfs through the city. These tours are fantastic and so informative. We will return for more soon.

we went on the "Foodie" tour and had the greatest time! We were picked up on time and driven around in a cute party bus to various sights around the City. Eli and can't think of the other ladies name, were so funny and told us about the City and sights. We went to 6 different restaurants and went inside 3 of them and the other 3 Eli got the food and we ate it on the bus. They served us a wine from Indiana and mint juleps. I had one of the best times I have had in a while. we were on the bus for about 4.5 hours-it was a Friday night so a lot of the restaurants were busy but they had us sat within in 3 to 5 minutes at a table. also, there was 12 of us on the tour so that might have made it be a little longer than usual. I would do this tour again!

The tour guides, Eli and Leslie made the tour most enjoyable. The combination of the taste stops and historic sights made the tour the best we have ever been on. The Fitzpatricks

On our last full day in Louisville, we decided to take an this escorted tour and we were not disappointed. The women who run this tour are very personable, and know a lot about the city. We had a great tour, not just of Louisville, but also a bit of Indiana. The "taste" part of the tour was also great. The visit to the bakery run by an African woman was a highlight of the tour--where else could one find great cookies and African artifacts as well? We will definitely try other tours by this great tour company on our next visit to Lousvile.

Took the City Sights tour yesterday and the "Foodie" tour tonight. Both were excellent. Tonight was the best tour of all. Last time my wife and I came to Kentucky we did a river cruise and were disappointed because the river is not that great a sight to see. Tonight we went around town tasting food and drinks from all over Louisville and it was so much better and I can not describe the difference because it is off the scale. Thank you Leslie and Eli for a wonderful night I will never forget.
