The driver did a good job. We saw many horse farms and stopped at one extensively. The driver shared a great deal of knowledge about the horses and the farms.

My girlfriend and I decided to do a weekend girls trip. This tour is excellent for families, spouses and fun getaways. Not being familiar with horses, the tour was nothing short of amazing. A must do if you’re in the Lexington area!

I appreciated the places we visited but our tour guide was obnoxious. He was knowledgeable but he kept cracking corny jokes. It looks like he would have picked up on the fact no one was laughing. And he kept hinting he was a good singer and near the end of the tour he starting singing an opera. But, I enjoyed seeing the farms so it would have been better with another driver.

Daniel is a great tour guide and receives many 5 star reviews. The majority of guests enjoy his humor and singing as part of the entertainment. and say so in their reviews. Sorry that you didn't enjoy that part of the tour but we are glad you enjoyed the farms.

Our tour guide Vicky provided us with a wealth of knowledge covering the history of the area, derby horse racing, all aspects of thoroughbreds and much more. The transportation was comfortable with plenty of opportunities to get out and see the sites. She made our tour so enjoyable! I highly recommend.
