This experience is so amazing. I really loved discovering the history and background behind some of Lexington's most fantastic artwork. Some pieces really made me ponder and that's perfect! And the food... it was all sooooo good! Definitely recommend this tour whether you live in Lexington or are just visiting.


This tour was amazing, the guide was so good at doing the job, she would answer all the questions everyone had, she was full of knowledge. I went back home with a lot of information about Lexington that I didn’t know🤩


Really loved this tour, what a great way to explore downtown Lexington, Kentucky. Reasonably priced & a great experience. The Artist Attic has so many talented creators under the same roof, you may even meet some of them. It was great seeing & getting details on downtown murals. Really enjoyed the rotating art exhibition at 21c hotel. Bonus! Super tasty appetizers provided at the beginning & the end of the tour!


A delightful discovery of Lexington's hidden gems! Kate was very gracious, extremely knowledgeable and quickly brought us up to speed on Lexington's vibrant art scene. Buffy guided us through amazing galleries and explained the backstory of many of the city's impressive murals. Refreshments at 21c were the perfect conclusion to this highly informative and enjoyable tour. We learned so much about this marvelous city and are already planning return trips with others.


Informative, Educational and Culturally Relevant. The owner was our guide and it was such an enjoyable experience.


I learned so much about my own town while I was entertaining out of town guests! It was wonderful for all of us!
