Louisville Historic Tours

Now departing daily at 11AM, 1PM, & 7:30PM

IMPORTANT: All tours start and end at the transitional edge of the neighborhood, near downtown and one block from the grandest mansions. As you would in any larger city, please be mindful of your safety when traveling to and from Old Louisville. There has been an increase in reports of robberies and other crimes in that area at night.

In support of the Oak Street revitalization efforts, Louisville Historic Tours has relocated to Smokey’s Bean Coffee Shop at 1212 S. Fourth Street, less than a mile south of Broadway in downtown Louisville.

Last-minute reservations are not a problem.
Light rain? Bring an umbrella and we’ll still do the tour!
Well-behaved dogs are welcome.
