We did the public tour one day and a custom tour the next. Charlie was our tour guide both days. He was awesome! He knew everything there was to know about bourbon, the distilleries, and the history! When we had a little extra time, he stopped somewhere and surprised us! The best part of our trip was when he stopped... More

I was on a bourbon tour recently for a bachelor party and we booked with Mint Julep. The bus was comfortable, spacious, and had a nice sound system. The two gentlemen who facilitated the tour were very easy going and knowledgeable about the area, local history, etcétera. They got us to each of our destinations on time but also allowed... More

Awesome tour guide. Can't say enough good about using them. We had a plan but if something cool came up we could go explore. Larry was very knowledgeable and full of history and Louisville stories. Would use them again.

We did their public tour for a bachelor party trip. The distillery tours and tastings were all great (we did Marker's, Heaven Hill, and 1792). And the Mint Julep crew took good care of us all and made the trip fun for everyone. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

It was great day with Charlie as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and made our day fun. He prepared us for what to expect at Makers Mark, Heaven Hills and Jim Beam. He was also very informative about the history of Louisville and Kentucky. The lunch was great with a traditional Hot Brown. I would recommend this trip to... More

We had a great time with Mint Julep tours. It was an easy way for us to experience the Bourbon trail without the hassles of drinking and driving and organizing each tour along the way. What we didn't anticipate is how much the tour guide, Joni, added to our experience. She was full of insight about local history, tour options,... More

The morning could not have been better. Fun seeing the personalities of the 2 chefs and seeing how they cook. Tasting the food afterwards was even better. Already discussing a return trip.

I can't say enough good about this company. The tour group we had was small only 6 people. We went on a Thursday. The tour guide, Joni, was SO much fun!! She and the bus driver, Phil, were a perfect team. If you go I suggest you see if you can get either one or both of them. Our group... More

My husband and I have been to all but a couple of the distilleries in Kentucky, on and off the Bourbon Trail. We weren't expecting a whole lot out of Barton's because of its size and our experience with some of the smaller distilleries. Our expectations couldn't have been more wrong. We learned more about how bourbon is made than... More
