This was an EXCELLENT tour!!! Even though the weather was chilly, we were in a lovely, heated van. We spent time at Keeneland Race Track...what a privilege! Our driver, Mike, was ABSOUTELY THE BEST!! He allowed time for the gift shop there and it was so nice...and a chance to warm up. He is a "Betologist" there and explained all we need to know about the racing form!!We drove by gorgeous horse farms and Mike knows EVERYTHING about them! He knows which famous horses are staying there, all the stats for the KY Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes as well as the Breeders Cup winners. We travelled the beautiful Frankfort Pike with horse farms stretching from side to side for miles; Mike knew ALL of them in detail.We ended up at Magdalena Farms, a division of McPeek Racing...and Mike took us on a personal tour of the stables. It's a training facility and we were able to pet many thoroughreds...maybe even a KY Derby winner some day! He even played "Cash Cab" on the way home!Don't even hesitate...book this tour and ask to go in Mike's van. It picks you up at the Embassy Suites on Newtown Rd...so convenient to everything. Mike is so smart, funny and oh so, loves his horses and everything about them.He can answer any questions you want and will take all the great pictures for you of you and your guests...he's just TERRIFIC! We just couldn't have been happier!

Looking for something to do before we headed home and found this tour. Man I’m glad we did. The information Daniel our guide provided was spot on and the stops we had were excellent. Even feed some of the thoroughbreds carrots.

This tour was very informative and interesting! We went to some great farms, some that I already had on my list to go see and I was surprised they were included in the tour. Daniel was our tour guide and did an amazing job! I highly recommend this tour!

The Thoroughbred Horse Farm Tour was magnificent.I enjoyed the stops to Keeneland Racing Park and the different horse farms.The best thing about the tour was our guide, Daniel. He was a phenomenal singer and superb punster. He made the history and stops a true delight. He gave us plenty of time to take great photos and even stopped for us to get the "money" shots.I highly recommend this company and tour guide Daniel.

First time visiting the house farms of Kentucky. The tour guide -Daniel- had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the race horses from and in the area, and gave a very entertaining tour. Keeneland was lovely and seems to be an easy place to visit and watch the horses train any morning, and it was nice to be able to say hi to some young horses on a small farm.
