Writer Lucy Pritchett of Today’s Woman says, “In February 2008, the couple founded Mint Julep Tours and Transportation. Lisa has a background in advertising and special events, and Sean brings his tech expertise to the partnership.

“We are now celebrating our 10th Derby season,” Lisa says. “When we started out we had one 14-passenger bus and a van — both of which we parked in the driveway of our home. I used the kitchen table as my office. Sean and I both sold the tours, drove the vehicles, served as guides, and even washed the buses. I have truly done it all. Now we have 22 vehicles,17 full-time office staff, and 35 tour guides and drivers. Our tour guides are all ages, are very accomplished people, and have a variety of professional backgrounds.”

Mint Julep Tours offers local sightseeing tours and getaways to Kentucky distilleries, wineries, horse farms, and breweries. All tours leave from the Mint Julep Gift Shop at the Galt House Hotel. Derby week the public tours run Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, she says.”
