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.

OK Tour

The tour itself was good, but our guide talked so fast that it was difficult to understand him. He accepted questions from the group, but often wouldn't take time to explain the answer-just sort of brushed over them. We especially enjoyed Keenland (wish we could have stayed there a little bit longer).

Vicky was the most knowledgeable tour guide! I didn't know a thing about horse racing and the thoroughbred world before this tour, but I walked away from this tour with a new appreciation of that business. We were able to see some of the most beautiful horse farms in the area, and we visited the Keeneland Race Track to watch some horses being trained. The tour bus was clean and comfortable, and Vicky used a microphone that allowed us to hear every word. I highly recommend this tour. One suggestion: Wear appropriate shoes. We did walk out to some paddocks to meet and pet some horses, and the grass was damp and soggy in some areas.
