LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- At 25 miles an hour, this silent ride leaves no carbon footprint as it travels through the city.

Tuk-tuks have arrived in Louisville. The three-wheel rickshaw is changing how to see the city.

"Once they see it, they start smiling and they never stop smiling," Sean Higgins, the owner of Bourbon City Cruisers, said.

Higgns said their tours offer a unique experience.

"So, we're showing them things they wouldn't normally see, telling them stories they wouldn't normally here," Higgins said.

Giving travelers a reason to choose the “bourbon country” as their next adventure destination.

"It's an extension of our tour so people are coming from all over the world and now they are staying two or three days and they are looking for other alternatives and one of those alternatives is downtown Louisville," Higgins said.

But the new cruise isn't just for the tourists.

"Nobody from Louisville excepts something like this, they've never seen anything like this. It really takes them out of the box," Higgins said.

And it's only in one of a few select places—Denver, Portland, Austin, Jacksonville.

At first, the idea was just a vision.

"When I first saw this I'm like if I could get this to my home town," Higgins said.

He said you can expect to have a good time on their tours.

"Bourbon City Cruisers is all about fun. From the vehicle that we selected to the routes that we take, to the people that travel with us, it's just an incredible time," Higgins said.
