Public Derby Tours

The ultimate Kentucky Derby experience

The week of the Kentucky Derby is one of the most popular times to visit the Bluegrass State! Each year, thousands of visitors descend on Louisville for the horse race, mint juleps and Kentucky hospitality.

Held the first Saturday in May each year, the Kentucky Derby is a bucket list event for many people. The next Kentucky Derby is Saturday, May 2, 2020. Make the most of your time by planning a Derby Week tour visiting bourbon distilleries, horse farms and more. Public tours are available Wednesday, April 29 through Monday, May 4, 2020 but customized tours or private transportation to Churchill Downs can be arranged any day Derby week!

Don’t miss our newest Derby event, the Mint Julep Sunset Social at Hermitage Farm. This high-end culinary experience on the Thursday before Derby 2020 (aka Thurby night) includes a sunset horse farm tour, mint julep bar and farm-fresh Southern dinner.
