Mint Julep Experiences Louisville

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 had such an amazing time on this tour. Everyone thought it was incredible. If you have a chance with other groups like ours to do the same three distilleries, our folks (and I) thought it was the perfect combination of large and small, casual and formal, informative and laid back. They all kept trying to give me credit for picking them but we let them all know that the only way to explore the trail is with Mint Julep Tours!

You were a pleasure to work with and I cannot say enough about Bruce and Mark. People loved their history and commentary. They were both fun and enjoyable to be around. They helped us herd our cats and never left a man behind!

We received lots of compliments on Rosemary's and the food was really delicious.

could go on and on....thank you again for making us look so good and for delivering absolutely everything you promised and making it so effortless. I wish I could have you on every Rendezvous!


Thank you so much for your help coordinating Thank you so much for your help coordinating, and huge props to Chuck for saving the day and turning around to get our VIP guest their phone they left on the van at drop off.

We'll definitely be booking with you all again for our future bourbon tours, as Mint Julep did a fantastic job. We've had some experiences with other tour and transportation companies in the area, and none have been as punctual, accommodating, and seamless as Mint Julep.



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?
