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!Gene
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.Lisa
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.Julia
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!Sandra
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.Lisa
I couldn’t be more please with this company!!! Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to wait last minute (2 weeks) before decided if our vacation had to be canceled or not. We were given the green light and then that’s when Chasta came in. 2 weeks prior to our vacation she was able to not only book us but able to get us into some distilleries that had been fully booked a month prior. She is very good about keeping up to date with communication and make sure every detail is catered to your choices. Our driver, Dan, was really knowledgeable, friendly, easy going, and made sure we got every detail out of our tour. He didn’t make us feel rushed at all. 5 stars all around!!Sarah
