Tour was professional. Pick-up was on time and even though we had to wait a bit for late strivers, the time was filled with stories of the surrounding area and famous owners and trainers. Vicki, our guide, was a virtual encyclopedia of knowledge on the horses, the beautiful farms, the owners, and the area. We learned more from our half day tour than we could ever imagine! The best part was being able to get up close and personal with these magnificent horses.

Wonderful morning in Lexington going to Keeneland race course and Old Friends horse farm. Our guide, Nick, was knowledgeable and experienced raising and training thoroughbreds, and kept us engaged and laughing for the entire 4 hours. On the downside, masks were not required in the tight, packed van. That was the only place on our entire trip over 10 days that masks in a tight space were not required, which was a little uncomfortable. Other than that - excellent.

Our guide, Daniel, was an excellent guide who had a lot of knowledge and made the tour fun. He spoke very quickly and it was hard to take in all of the information. Perhaps a little slower delivery would be helpful. We had a great time.

This tour was one of the best ever! Our guide Nick was fun, knowledgable, answered any and all questions, and made sure we were having a wonderful experience. We walked away with a deeper knowledge of thoroughbreds, horse farms, horse racing, and drove through some of the iconic green rolling hills of Kentucky. Anyone who has an interest in horses will love this tour
