What people are saying about Nashville

Duncan our guide was superb. Knowledgeable about the history of Nashville in general and blended this along with America and The War of Independence plus the Civil War. All the while the musical heritage which makes Nashville what it is was woven through with everything. We both loved this two hour experience.

The tour was incredible with the highlight being the RCA Studio B tour. You can smell the history in that place and Abby did a stellar job of guiding us through musical magic that was created there. The Country Music Hall of Fame was also amazing. A great way to see two epic venues in one tour!

The Studio B Tour was a really neat experience—to be in the studio where Elvis did all of his recordings and where Dolly signed on. Our tour guide, Tristan, was super fun and full of info. We did the self-guided tour in the Country Music Hall of Fame. So much to take in and worth every minute.

Eric was a fantastic tour guide. We were taken to a winery , whiskey tasting, a distillery and a cocktail bar for excellent espresso martinis. Would fully recommend this to someone coming to Nashville.

This was so much fun! Great entertainment! Must Do This!!!
