My wife and I really enjoyed the trip. Small group of four. Our driver was great! Churchill Downs is a must see in Louisville. I’m glad they picked Buffalo Trace for our distillery.


We were paired with another couple, which was fun and we made new friends, but I think we expected more of a tour bus environment and not an Uber like experience. Climbing in and out of the back of a third row seating situation was a bit awkward. Our driver was nice, he offered us waters, but didn’t talk much. The amount of time at each stop was way too short and barely enough time to complete the tours. We didn’t have time to explore the sites outside of the very short tours and shopping was very quick and short at the distillery, after we tried to squeeze in some lunch. I also thought we would have the option to stop at an additional bourbon distillery but we barely had time to finish the first one. I just felt like for the price we paid we could have got our own Uber and taken as long as we wanted. The tickets for the tours were not very expensive had we purchased on our own.


We had a great time! Loved every minute and our tour guide was excellent. He took great care of us and made sure our day was enjoyable.


There was not enough time between tours we barely made it until to makers mark almost missed the tour. Also could of used more time at church hill downs


My husband and i selected 2 distilleries and were looking forward to touring Churchill Downs. The tour at CD was canceled as it was right after the Derby. We expected the company to know this. We paid a hefty fee to look at the derby museum which was open to the public and tour Buffalo Trace and Angels Envy. The private car and driver were fine. If i were to do this again, I'd plan the tours myself as we had a rental car. We had booked Woodford Reserve tour ourselves and that turned out great. My advice- if you have a rental car, spend some time and book distillery tours directly and save yourself $$.

This was our first time in Louisville, KY and our driver Belkinwas the most courteous and kind driver and tour guide we could have asked for on our trip. She made our tour amazing and very comfortable. I would highly recommend for anyone coming to Louisville.


Was very excited to do the tour. Unfortunately we didn't make the trip due to a death in the family. Group would not let us reschedule. Left 3 messages to discuss a transfer and never received a call back. Very disappointing.


Everything was great. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and seemed knowledgeable , but we could not understand her.


Probably our favorite distillery tour! The one note about the Churchill Downs museum/tour was that there were no horses at that time which we weren’t aware of so keep that in mind when hoping to check out the track. However the museum tour and video were great.


We had a great time. Our guide Ralph was very knowledgeable. The tour was fantastic! Bourbon was even better! Would recommend
