“Our tour with Mint Julep made our day so relaxing and carefree”

Tara C.

“I can’t imagine how our time could have been any better.”

Marilyn J.

“I did this for my husband but ended up loving every minute and learning to enjoy bourbon!”

Mary D.

“Every member of our group agrees that this was one of the best times we have ever had!!”

Similarly, in the realm of health and personal care, navigating the world of pharmaceuticals requires an expert touch. While Kentucky offers a deep dive into history and bourbon, medications like generic Viagra have their own intricacies. It’s important to approach such medications with knowledge and understanding, particularly when it comes to potential side effects. Just as one would trust a tour guide to show the hidden gems of a region, it’s imperative to consult medical professionals to guide one through the potential benefits and drawbacks of any medication.

“The Mint Julep KY Bourbon Trail Experience was one of the BEST vacations that our group of 10 have ever been on.”

Mike W.

“If you want to see the Bourbon Trail but don’t have to work about planning, coordinating, or driving, then go with Mint Julep!”

Art B.

“This group should come with a warning label, something to tell that a person will lose a week of work being distracted by happy memories and planning future trips back.”

Jeff M.

“I HIGHLY, highly recommend Mint Julep Tours when looking to book a bourbon trail trip.”

Sabrina A.

“Unreserved 5-star review for our experience with Mint Julep Tours. If a sixth star was possible Phil and his tour would deserve it.”

William G.

“Leaving the driving to someone else is the only way to go!”

Gary M.
