  1. “Horses Hooch and History tour”

    I was traveling alone and booked this trip the day before I arrived. The tour guide Bruce was wonderful, and seemed to take into consideration I was alone (and not a part of the other group on the bus) and was kind enough to sit with me and have lunch once we hit the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
    I was the only one in the group who didn’t know a thing about horses, and I still loved visiting the Darby Dan farm. The tour gave me a feel for the deep tradition of horse-racing in Kentucky, and I would highly recommend the horse farm tour as a definite must.

    The “hooch” part of the tour was Buffalo Trace Distillery, and not only did Bluegrass provide an excellent tour guide, but we were also lucky enough to have a wonderful guide at the Distillery, too.

    I learned more about Bourbon than I thought possible, and the taste testing part was the most fun! 😉

    If you’re in the Lexington area and want to see the area to get a feel for what it’s really like, I recommend the Horses & Hooch tour. It gives you a chance to experience a little bit of everything in a comfortable van with a fun tour guide.
