    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.

    Our guide Mike was the most knowledgeable guide I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. The horses and the farm people were extremely gracious and of course the horses were beautiful. Fantastic drive

    We really enjoyed the Thoroughbred Horse Farm tour. Daniel was an excellent tour guide, and we learned so much about the farms, jockeys, races etc. We followed his advice and went to an early morning practice the next day, and several other suggestions he made, it really rounded out our Lexington stay. We recommend!!

    The group was left without the guide as two additional people had to be retrieved. Totally different approach of this guide than the last tour taken.
    Nice to have umbrellas provided.

    Matt was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and his van was new. We had about 10 people on the van and he took us to 3 farms and we got to pet the babies. Great tour.
