LOUISVILLE, Ky. – August 26, 2021 – Mint Julep Experiences is proud to announce that they have been recognized by Tripadvisor as the “Best of the Best” (in the Attractions/Tours category) and are now considered the top one percent of hospitality businesses worldwide. Selected based on ultimate customer experience ratings for a full year prior to the pandemic, this marks the 11th consecutive year in which Mint Julep was awarded this honor, now qualifying the Louisville and Nashville-based experiential tour company for the Tripadvisor “Hall of Fame” status.

“In a world still struggling with a pandemic, it’s difficult to celebrate. However, this achievement was earned by our staff of passionate, caring, and loving humans that deserve recognition so we will celebrate it in style. I continue to be humbled and proud of their efforts as they strive to put the customer’s safety and memorable experiences above all else. As well, our partner distilleries, attractions, restaurants, and bars are incredibly creative and compassionate in their willingness to support the guests we are bringing to their destinations. We share this award with them,” said Lisa Higgins, owner of Mint Julep Experiences.

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent - delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.”
