We did the behind the scenes tour at Churchill Downs. This was the BEST tour I have ever been on. Informative, fun and when you see the penthouse there WOW!!!!! I can’t say enough good things about it. It made dropping my daughter off at college a little less depressing that day.

We took an Uber for the tour and when we were checking in for the it they told us that they were booked and that this company's schedule was not the same as theirs. We did walk around the museum but that was it. Bottom line is this was a disappointing waste of time and money.
