2019 has space for two more groups. The Kentucky Derby is America’s most extravagant springtime sports party, and one of her most celebrated events. While there is a horse race at the heart of this spectacle, there are many other intriguing aspects within this Louisville tradition. It is a festival and fashion show, it’s about Bourbon and Horses, Mint Juleps and Riverboats, and it’s about time you see it. It’s the chance of a lifetime / In a lifetime of chance /And it’s high time you joined in the dance.
America’s largest Group Tour Halloween Party is in Louisville at the end of October 2019! It features The Phantom’s Masquerade, a costumed dinner gala and the original movie “Phantom of the Opera,” The Jack O-Lantern Spectacular & the Crypt Kicker Five, and the finale is a night with the Headless Horseman at Churchill Downs. This is the most interesting and entertaining Halloween Tour ever sold to groups. It’s a Graveyard Smash that should sell-out in a flash.
There was overwhelming demand for our 2019 “Derby Spectacular” and it Sold Out very early. To satisfy the Waiting List we have created a new tour “The Derby Sportsman” It differs significantly from the original which is filled with horses and bourbon tours. This is a luxury resort package with Golf, Spa and fine dining – but it still includes a Derby Dinner Party and Show, as well as our great Reserved Seats at Churchill Downs. For 2019 this is your last chance to dress-up and see “The Run for The Roses.”
While it is difficult to describe the combo, we compare it to a ‘Tale of Two Ships. ’ “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times (or cruises).” And it is a full day of fun on The Belle Of Louisville’s Autumn Cruise Special. Followed by a visit to the recreation of Noah’s Ark, a monument to an Apocalyptic moment from the Old Testament. We take solace only in the thought that Dickens could not have compared these two ships either.
Derby Training Camp is a tour where you learn about Kentucky Derby traditions and history. It’s a full day at Churchill Downs attending one of the Spring or Fall Races. It’s like Derby Prep School: you learn how to Place Bets and make Mint Juleps, everything you need to know before you come back for the real Derby . . . and both the crowds and prices are much more manageable.
Come enjoy history from the Old Testament in two of America’s newest museums. The Creation Museum offers a stunning interpretation of Adam and Eve’s Garden of Eden, and much more. Then at the Ark Encounter you are seemingly transported backward in time to meet Noah and his family, to gain an understanding of what life was like prior to the flood, and how they might have lived onboard for those 40 days. What was life like? from cooking food to sleeping, recreation, and even gardening.
Introducing a New Show, packaged into an already great Tour Concept. “All The Whos in Whoville” have just made Louisville home. It’s a new dinner show and we’ve added it to our package that includes Reindeer Racing, Holiday Music from the singers at My Old Kentucky Home, a Nutcracker display at the Frazier Museum, Legos and Trains at The Louisville Slugger and a bit of fine bourbon from our friend Evan Williams.
This new tour combines the historic grace of the Boone Tavern Hotel with a visit to America’s newest faith based attraction -The Ark. It also features the arts and music of Appalachia. Your days are filled with both artistic and divine inspiration. Then your evenings are filled with enough Bluegrass Music and Southern Cooking to have your lips and toes tap-smacking a duet.
