Best tour I’ve had my whole life. Got to see so many cool places. The van was super cozy and nice to take a nap in between destinations. Brian was so friendly and had me laughing and smiling all day. He even took family photos of us through the day so I can remember the trip later!

Booked a tour last minute for my husband’s birthday. It was amazing. Brian took us to the best spots and had so much knowledge to share about bourban drinking, history, and the area. Definitely go with places he suggests and let him customize the tour- he picked way better places than we would have chosen on our own. We got to bring along our 7 month old and they were very accommodating to fit her in the van and take on tours. Everything was clean and comfortable the whole day. 10/10 would book again.

Brian was a wonderful guide, getting us to and from our barrel pick in Louisville plus suggesting great bourbon bar stops on the way as well. Thank you for a great time!

7 of us just did a trip to Bardstown to visit 4 distilleries. We’re all experienced on the bourbon trail, so we told Brian what we wanted to do this time and he made it happen. We had a great time and are already talking about where we’ll go next year – using Brian’s services of course. The van was great. Comfortable and decked out with live TV, stereo, water, and plenty of room for souvenirs. You can easily get 7 people in your party. Brian was prompt and professional and shared some cool tidbits along the way. He’s got the knowledge to help newbies learn in a fun way, and if you’re a bourbon hound, talking to him is just like talking to one of your good bourbon friends. Again, we had an awesome time and 100% recommend him with confidence.

Cindy was an absolute gem!! The van was clean, spacious and a ton of fun. We took a solid drive down to Kentucky and back and made it safe through traffic and snow!

We had the greatest experience with the Queen City Bourbon Cruise. A full day, with Brian managing 5 visits, and 3 great tastings, including getting us in with shortest notice (1 day …) at Woodford Reserve for a tour and tasting!

If you are looking for a bourbon run you have to go with Queen City. Good people, knowledgeable about the sites they take you, have connections to the places you go, and you will have a comfortable and excellent time. I appreciate Brian so much for my birthday experience and I’d recommend it to anyone interested in this type of tour.
