Owner description: Coming to Lexington soon? There are three ways to see this very beautiful part of the world: 1. Do it yourself with maps, perhaps a GPS, and a lot of patience. 2. Take a public tour and join 15-20 fellow visitors on a pre-planned tour of the area. 3. Take a private tour, planned by you and your guide, based on YOUR interests. You'll tour in the comfort of YOUR OWN VEHICLE. Your guide can drive so you can soak up the scenery, but that's entirely up to you. If #3 sounds good to you, that's where we can help. Our tours range from as little as 4 hours, to a full day, or more - depending on your interests and budget. Start your planning early. That gives us time to learn about you and your interests and create a proposal for you. You're coming to one of the most beautiful and interesting places you've ever been!

We spent the morning at the Keeneland track and then on to Claiborne Farm. John Midbo was knowledgeable and professional. He gave some wonderful insight into the area. Breakfast (on your own) at the Keeneland track was an added treat! We had a great time! I would highly recommend this tour.

John’s tour is one of the best ways to learn about the Kentucky horse racing world up close and personal. Keenland Track and Claiborne Farm are a must see, and with John filling us in on the history of the area, along with fun details about horse racing and breeding, our morning was very cool indeed! Thanks John!

We spent a couple of days in Lexington and took John's tour of Keeneland race track and Claiborne Farm. This was the highlight of our trip. John is knowledgeable and we really enjoyed his relaxed demeanor. We had a good and inexpensive breakfast at the track kitchen. Planning to get back in October for racing. Beautiful facilities. Next we drove through horse country to Claiborne Farm the burial location of Secretariat and other race legends. We heartedly recommend this tour and we hope to have a repeat tour.

We spent half a day with John Midbo as our tour guide at Keeneland Racetrack and Claiborne Farm. He was very professional and knowledgeable. John also gave us lots of information about the area and things we could do on our own. We would definitely recommend him!

What a fun and informative day with John Midbo. John had everything planned to the “T”, kept us on time and treated us special on our private tour. One of those days we would all do over. Really enjoyed going to Keeneland and Claiborne Farms. One other benefit, John is taking pictures and you’re in them! Perfect.
