Thanks for doing a review Cornelia. The tour does focus 95% on horses and thoroughbred related activities. We can't appeal to everyone's specific wants on a public tour. FYI read our reviews and you will see that almost every review Vicki gets is 5 stars....More

Fun afternoon!

We had agreat afternoon with Vicky, touring the back roads if horse country. She is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about horses, jockeys, farms, owners, racing and even bourbon! She has great presentation skills, interjecting humor that made the tour very enjoyable. We highly recommend this 3-hour tour....More

I would contact them. It was an extended van but I don't know their riles about strollers and car seats.

The tour really doesn't change when it's raining. Some of the sights are indoors, but many are outside, so just dress for the rain, bring an umbrella because you will be standing outside.
