Reviews from Guests

  • The tour at Jack Daniels was fascinating from start to finish. Great time doesn’t even start to describe our experience. We all felt like royalty with the treatment we received. First let me start off by saying how wonderful our driver Ray was. What a true gentleman. Not only was he a good driver and tour guide but kept us laughing and entertained with history and stories. A real gem for sure. We are all honored to have met him. The tour at Jack Daniels was fascinating from start to finish. Our tour guide was Ashley, she is what I would call personality and then some. Lunch at Miss Mary Bobos was behind our expectations. We all felt like we were eating Sunday dinner at grandmas house. We also enjoyed having the free time to shop in the square. When I first read that we would be going to the grave site at Jack Daniels I was skeptical to say the least. But after experiencing it I definitely changed my mind. I guess the only way to describe it was, cool. I would highly recommend Ray and Mint Julep to anybody. We have already penciled in a trip back to Nashville in June 2022. I will be contacting you again to see what kind of tour we can do next time. Thank you for all of your help.

  • Incredible Day on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail Had such an incredible day on the Tennessee whiskey trail! If you're looking for a fun filled day that will also educate and entertain you with history and whiskey, this tour is for you! 10 Stars if I could!

  • Tailor Made Tour was Outstanding! Our private tour, with Bob H, included 3 small distilleries, as well as lunch at 55 South. Every part of our tour was exceptional. The distilleries were very welcoming, our drive so scenic and our tour guide, incredibly knowledgable. The distilleries we chose were Nelson's Greenbriar, H. Clark Distillery and Leiper's Fork. We enjoyed how our driver engaged in conversation, not just about the stops on the tour, but about the area. We learned so much about the area from him. The bus was clean and comfortable. Our lunch was absolutely OUTSTANDING! I would highly recommend Mint Julep Experiences for your next tour.

  • Southern Hospitality Mint Julep put together a custom tour for our group and it was perfect. Our driver/guide, Emily, was amazing. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of Nashville made our tour wonderful.

  • Wonderful and Memorable Time on our Mint Julep Tour We had a wonderful and memorable time on our Mint Julep tour today. Charlie was a great guide who was very knowledgeable and shared lots of pertinent information about bourbon, thoroughbreds and Kentucky. The tour was well worth the cost and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!

  • Extremely Convenient To Go Through Mint Julep Very educational tour with a good amount of product tasting. Loved how I didn’t have to navigate around any of the stops. Extremely convenient to go through Mint Julep, and to have lunch already secured was an added enhancement! Thank you for the great time and wonderful memories.
