13 Years of Excellence & Counting

2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 | 2018 | 2019 | 2020 | 2021 | 2022

We’ve been making travel dreams a reality for more than 13 years. Our top-priority is to show our guests southern hospitality with a twist of mint — unique experiences, excellent service, and a lifetime of memories. Below are authentic reviews from travelers just like you. We appreciate every one of them.

We were enthralled with what we received from Mint Julep We had an outstanding time for our visit and Larry was more than what we could have hoped for in a tour guide. I also want to thank you because the way you built the trip took more insight than I initially saw. The way everything flowed from start to finish built on the last and was not just a line of tours and tastings. I could see the thought process as we progressed through. We were enthralled with what we received from Mint Julep, and I could write for another hour on how much we LOVED Larry for his insight, patience and going above and beyond. If any of your other people are even close to him, then you have one hell of a product. We would recommend you to everyone.

We visited 11 distilleries over a 4-day period along with transportation being provided from our home in Gallatin & back The Mint Julep KY Bourbon Trail experience was one of the BEST vacations that our group of 10 have ever been on. The drivers were awesome & Laura Millen planned each day to perfection for the max enjoyment without overdoing it!



We’ve been doing this for more than 10 years.

 In that time, we’ve gotten more than 1500 five-star reviews between TripAdvisorYelp and Facebook. In 2019, we received our 10th consecutive TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and we are now in their Hall of Fame. Reviews don’t lie. These are honest accounts of how Mint Julep Experiences went above and beyond to craft the perfect Bluegrass adventure. You’ll have a hard time finding anyone who didn’t think it was worth every penny to pick us. More than 31,000 guests chose Mint Julep in 2017 because we are the best in the business.

We maximize your time.

Time is money! We save you time planning and act as your personal city concierge. Mint Julep also takes care of every detail of your day to make sure its jam-packed. Don’t spend hours on Google trying to figure out how long it takes to get from Maker’s Mark to Jim Beam or wondering where to get lunch along the way. We make your trip hassle-free with guaranteed reservations, impeccable timing and full-service trip planning. Our experience coordinators optimize your schedule so that you can see and do more.

We know Kentucky.

Our drivers and tour leaders make your day fun and educational. We’re not just a chauffeur from one place to another. Mint Julep is all about the full experience. Whether its filling in the blanks between horse farm tours, knowing where to take a detour to see a horse farm or abandoned distillery if we have an extra few minutes, or giving the inside scoop on where to find the rare bourbon at distilleries, we’re out in the field 7 days a week, 365 days a year taking in everything Kentucky to share with you

We’ve got connections.

Mint Julep has partnerships with distilleries, horse farms and Kentucky attractions to get you behind the scenes for unmatched access. We have exclusive offerings that you just can’t get anywhere else. From special tastings to hard hat tours and master distiller meet-and-greets, we take you where no one else can.

We have options.

Sometimes you want to just click BOOK NOW and have us take care of the whole day – and we can do that. Our public bourbon tours hit distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each is a one-day adventure to three different Kentucky distilleries. It includes comfortable transportation, an awesome tour guide to lead your way, lunch at a locally-owned Kentucky restaurant, two distillery tours with tastings, and one additional distillery tasting.

Sometimes you want to go your own way – and that’s our specialty. You tell us the size of your group and a few ‘bucket list’ places you want to go and we customize your entire trip. You’ll have private transportation from our fleet of luxury vehicles, an optimized itinerary hand-tailored by our experience coordinators, and a trained driver/guide to lead your way. Want to add in a special dinner? Hands-on cocktail class? Guided bourbon tasting?
