Be a part of the “Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports”…

as the world turns its attention to the twin spires of Churchill Downs for the high-stakes race, The Kentucky Derby.

Run annually on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs, the Derby attracts the best ‘three-year-olds’ in the world, each vying for a chance at immortality. Celebrate the first rites of spring and experience the reverent silence as the first strains of ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ play when the horses leave the paddock. Savor this experience, be a part of history and see your favorite horse win this year’s running of the ‘Great American Horse Race’.

The main reason for attending the Kentucky Derby is to be part of this Spectacular event. It can be difficult for the average person to obtain tickets and it takes years of loyal attendance for groups to acquire good seating for the Kentucky Derby. Adventure Caravans has been going to the Derby for years and our loyal attendance allows you to enjoy upgraded Box Seating that includes convenient access to betting windows, food vendors and lounges. Adventure Caravans provides you a Reserved Box Seat with elbow room and seat backs where you can experience all the tastes, sounds and smells unique to the Derby. You will probably attend the Kentucky Derby only once in your lifetime and we want you to get the greatest experience and best seats possible. You may pay a few dollars more, but you know you are getting THE BEST Derby Package when traveling with us.

Celebrate the first rites of spring and experience the reverent silence as the first strains of ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ play when the horses leave the paddock. Savor this experience, be a part of history and see you favorite horse win this year’s running of the ‘Great American Horse Race’.

    Jerry & Kay Shultz
  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and the Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.
