    Greatly enjoyed the zip line experience! The zip lines were fun and the guides were great as well. They did a wonderful job making sure we understood from line to line what to expect and gave specific directions to keep us safe and having fun. Our guides were Thomas and Devin. They both worked well together and kept things funny and lighthearted but we’re also glad to answer questions about the cave.

    No reflection on our guides at all but a couple things I think could be improved…this business does not accept cash. This is unfortunate, especially for the guides, and it would be nice for the business to offer a way for customers to have access to cash to leave tips for the guides. There is a coin machine there for the lockers and if there’s an atm machine there, we didn’t see it. So even though it’s a cashless business, I recommend taking some cash in pocket to tip your guides. The other recommendation is consider renaming the zip line that is symbolic of hell. Maybe “Lava Volcano,” Volcano Explosion” or something to that affect. As a Christian, he’ll is not somewhere I really aspire to visit or go so it would be great if you guys would consider renaming that one.

    In all though, we did greatly enjoy our time there, the cave is amazing and all the employees we encountered were very kind and helpful.

    My spouse and I both have a manufacturing background so we really enjoyed seeing how the bat is manufactured -- who knew all the details! Enjoyed the factory tour plus holding Babe Ruth's bat. Small factory for the volume they produce. Appears to be a good place for kids too and they have a nice gift shop -- plus you get a free mini-bat.

    The in depth tour of Churchill Downs is very interesting. I had no idea it had so many rooms and bars! There are so many different locations in which one can watch the Kentucky Derby. Some are very exclusive. The museum itself has a 360 degree movie that’s very nice!

    We were in Louisville and stopped to check out the historic horse racing venue. We didn't have time for full tour but we were able to visit the gift shop, experience some of the history, see some of the facilities and get some good photos. We also drove around the outside of the venue and saw what we could of this track (but were limited due to construction going on). Beautiful place to visit and experience if travelling through.

    The house itself was amazing with incredibly detailed woodwork and floors. Having the great great grandchild of the former owner as a guide added immensely to our tour through her inside history and tidbits of family lore. Walking around the entire neighborhood was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

    It was a great display of history. I found out more of a reason I love Muhammad work and logic. My daughters and I were pleased to see all the things about him. You need a least a few hours to go through this museum it is magnificent.

    Our first visit to Louisville in probably 25 years! It was a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon with temps in the 50s when we arrived. First stop was the Big Four Bridge. Everything about it is terrific! Free parking. Great views. Good clean air. Plenty of space to accommodate the photographers, the strollers, the runners and bikers. It was nice to see friends, couples, and families taking advantage of the beautiful day! Across the day, we made three visits: early afternoon to acquaint ourselves with the site; late afternoon to walk the mile across the bridge, get coffee, and walk back; late evening to see the lights on the bridge and reflected in the water. Can't beat this attraction!

    Great tour in a historic distillery. Alexis was knowledgeable and energetic in sharing her enthusiasm for the brands aging at S-W.

    Great experience! We came for a day trip and didn't know what to expect. Kate (our tour guide) was lovely and super knowledgeable. Liked it so much I'm bringing my friends who come to visit soon!

    We had other tours booked on our day in Louisville so we only had time to stop by the gift store, hoping they would have some allocated Bourbon. They did not that day but the gentleman working in the gift store was chatting with us and ended up giving us a taste of a couple of Bourbons. It was fantastic. We also were able to buy some Elijah Craig C9 22 there, which is one of our favorites. We also saw where the tours exit and it looked cool.

    Our tour guide Sarah was super knowledgeable and friendly, everything you’d expect from southern hospitality! The brandy and bourbon were superb and the facility was much bigger than expected. What a terrific tour!

    We visit historic cemeteries frequently while traveling in order to pay our respects to those who have touched our lives in some way through their actions or through their legacy. From the minute we passed through the cemetery gates, we noticed how beautiful the cemetery is. Not only is the cemetery well maintained, but it is filled with tributes in the form of art, particularly sculpture. We had a map and were able to stop by the final resting places of Col. Harland Sanders of KFC fame and Muhammad Ali, but we were so taken by sites along the road that we stopped to investigate. The "Shall We Dance" dancing couple is extraordinary and so moving that we are not likely to forget our moment there any time soon. The Tree sculpture in honor of a landscape designer. We did locate the Satterwhite Memorial replicating the Petit Trianon at Versailles and the Gheens Mausoleum with its Last Supper (da Vinci) window. The National Cemetery is beautiful and haunting in its extensiveness and its design with rows of white headstones. Thanks to the cemetery for its yellow road line to Col. Sanders and its green road line to Muhammad Ali, but even with the map we couldn't locate some of the other graves and monuments we had hoped to see. Still was more than worth our time to visit!!

    Great informational tour on Jan. 30. One of the best tours we have had! We live in Indians about 1 1/2 hour away and it was well worth the trip!! Well made bourbon. I rank it high on my list!

    We went back in October with our entire family (6 adults plus a toddler) and had a blast! The animals were fun to watch, there were all kinds of photo ops for the entire family, the pretzels were delicious, and I was even able to walk it despite suffering from a bad attack of sciatica. The zoo is over an hour away from our home but we plan to get an annual membership as soon as my husband retires. Our adult children already have them.

    I love going to the ball park. Slugger field is one of the best. I love that the ball players interact with the kids in the stands. They always pay attention to the hem often.
