About Unfiltered KY Tours

Your Preferred Tour Company 

Unfiltered KY Tours was created to be a difference maker in our world of Kentucky tourism.

 

After working for other bourbon tour companies, I found that a lot of bourbon tourists are thrown into high-volume experiences that weren't really made for them. So, we decided to focus on curated tours centered around a guest's favorite brands and their idea of a perfect Kentucky bourbon tour day. 

 

I also heard of about folks having anxiety spending the day with strangers on large tour buses. So, I wanted to offer private tours that are close in price to some of those big-box tour companies for added peace and privacy

 

More than anything, I want to offer a tour experience that give guests the same kind of hospitality as they'll encounter on the bourbon trail, without breaking the bank. 

Thanks for giving my small business a chance! We look forward to sharing the unfiltered side of Kentucky with you!
