Unfortunately we hired a "cheaper" Affordable Tour stretch limo for our day on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour. The limo was old, drivers inexperienced, got lost, missed two of the three tours, driver did a u-turn on I-64 and got stuck, requiring a wrecker. Finally got to last tour stop and everyone was afraid to get back in the limo. A Mint Julep Tour bus that had extra seats allowed half of our party to hitch a ride back to Louisville. Then we realized what a real tour guide could do. We had no narative in our limo...Mint Julep guides gave a running description of the territory and the sites visited. The Mint Julep guides were very friendly, helpful and extremely kind. The next time we will hire them in the beginning. The bus was very clean and accommodating to the passengers. The group had obviously had a great day. We are so sorry we did not hire Mint Jullep Tours....you can be sure we will the next time.

We recently booked a limo company to take our group of 10 on the bourbon trail. We mistakingly opted for a less expensive company, which we definitely regret now. This other limo company had no idea where they were going which created situations for them to repeatedly put us in danger with very poorly executed corrections, which included 3 point turns and u-turns on divided highways and turning around in someone's front yard. They ultimately got the limo stuck in a ditch, with only 1 wheel even touching the ground. The police had to come, call a semi tow truck and get us on our way. This company assured us we would get our money back and they were sending another limo to complete our trip, Neither happened! When we got to our final stop we met Bob and Joni from Mint Julep. They were kind enough to take 4 members of our group, that did not want to get back into our original limo (which now had something wrong with it) with our VERY young and unprofessional driver and attendant, back to Louisville. They not only made room for them in their vehicle, they did not charge us for this trip. They were awesome!!! We would definitely book with them in the future!!!!

We planned a Bourbon Trail experience around a football boys trip. We had a great day on our tour. The Makers Mark and Willett Tours were great, we would have liked more time at Jim Beam. There is a lot to see and experience, including food experiences at Beam, a couple hours at that location isn't enough.

Enjoyed Chuck and John over a 2 day tour. Fantastic experience. Learned a LOT about bourbon and the Louisville area in general. Times at each of the distillery locations was perfect. Tours at Woodford and Makers Mark were the best in my opinion. Would recommend Mint Julep tours to anyone.
