FAQ’s About Private Tours

Take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions about our Private Tours:

That depends on the tour you book. The evening tour is more of a cocktail & booze tour than a food tour, but you’ll be eating almost a full meal consisting of an appetizer portion, entree portion, and dessert. The daytime food tours have a LOT of food – we recommend arriving hungry and possibly planning to skip dinner that evening!

That depends on the tour you book. The evening tour is primarily a drinking tour and you will be drinking 2 small pours of bourbon, a full glass of beer, and 4 half cocktails. The daytime tours have less alcohol; you will enjoy some beer, bourbon tastings, and some other cocktail tastings depending on the tour.

Yes! You will enjoy delicious non-alcoholic mocktails and drinks paired with delicious food.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any kind of transportation to our guests. We are licensed and insured as a walking tour company only, and our insurance doesn’t currently allow us to offer any kind of transportation to our guests. That said, Lyft and Uber are typically available near our tour locations.

The price of our tours is based on an operating margin that fairly compensates our hard working tour guides, pays full menu price for our local restaurant partners, and includes a gratuity for the staff at each of the bars and restaurants we visit.

Private tours require a bit of extra legwork on our end to figure out custom itineraries, communicate with our restaurant partners, and book additional tour guides. For this reason, we add a $10 per person administrative fee to our public pricing to cover our time. We also require our private tour groups to prepay a 10% gratuity for our hard-working tour guides.

Unfortunately, we are only able to host you on our walking food tours. We’re happy to offer advice or recommendations for bourbon trail drivers or restaurants, though!

Our tour times and days are based on when our restaurant partners are open. However, we can sometimes make it work if we create a custom tour itinerary that skips a stop, or if there is a large group that makes it worthwhile for our restaurant partners to open and add staff just for us. Please fill out the request form above with what you’re looking for and we’ll check with our restaurant partners to see if they are willing to make special accommodations for your group, or let you know what customized tour options we can offer.

This tour was so freaking fantastic! You cannot miss this unique opportunity to explore Nulu and eat so many delicious treats! We explored the city and learned some of the histories of Louisville (the host was very knowledgeable and witty), everything in the tour was timed well and just so fun. I feel like this was 3 tours bundled into one, we saw so many places and ate so much unique to Lousiville food. It was AWESOME!!

What an awesome tour! Started with beer and cheese, and then wandered through the neighborhoods learning the history of the development of Louisville, learning culture, eating more food, and drinking delicious cocktails! 10/10 would recommend
