LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 1, 2019) – Mint Julep Experiences has achieved TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame status for receiving TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for 10 consecutive years. Since 2008, Mint Julep Experiences has earned more than 1400 five-star reviews on the travel site. Travelers frequently mention Mint Julep’s team of knowledgeable and engaging tour leaders and drivers who provide experiences that go above and beyond expectations.
“TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients for the 2019 Certificate of Excellence, which for a decade has celebrated businesses that have consistently received positive ratings from travelers on the world’s largest travel platform,” said Neela Pal, Vice President of Brand at TripAdvisor. “This recognition allows us to publicly recognized businesses that are actively taking into account customer feedback to help travelers confidently experience the most highly reviewed places to eat, stay and explore.”
“For our market, this is as high of an honor as a Michelin rating or James Beard award,“ said Sean Higgins, Owner of Mint Julep Experiences. “It is a direct reflection of the passion and care our employees place on the guest experience. They truly are remarkable and deserving of this recognition.”
Certificate of Excellence recipients are awarded annually and include accommodations, restaurants and attractions around the world who have continually delivered high quality customer experiences. TripAdvisor takes into account quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by real travelers to determine each year’s winners. Only 10% of total businesses consistently receive good enough reviews to be designated with the Certificate of Excellence and even fewer make it to the Hall of Fame.
Mint Julep Experiences’ Nashville, Tenn. operation also earned the 2019 Certificate of Excellence for its first year in business. This remarkable feat for a newly opened operation proves Mint Julep’s dedication to positive customer experiences extends to every aspect of its veteran tour business.
