Before I give my review on the tour I just want to say I highly recommend Viator Tours. My daughter and I were in Europe a couple years ago and we used Viator for all our tours, never a problem. Back to the plantation tour. We had a great day! Our bus driver Lee was wonderful and very informative. We visited The Hermitage and Belle Meade. The Hermitage had a guide on each floor to explain the significance of each room. Belle Meade had a guide go through the house with us. She was great. We stopped in between the plantations for a nice lunch. Only $10.00 for a buffet. Don't forget to try the fried chicken, awesome. Belle Meade has it's own winery so we were able to have samples. You can also purchase the
wine . It was a great 1/2 day tour. Back in Nashville by about 4pm so we had the rest of the day to relax around downtown. Would definitely recommend this tour if you love history.
Well worth it. We had admission to the Ryman Auditorium and Country Music Hall of Fame. We were able to wonder around and take in everything at our leisure. Our guide Monty was great. He pointed out where a couple of music stars lived, and the buildings for the different record labels. We were able to stop at one point to take pictures. I would definitely recommend the tour. One of the perks is not having to stand in line to get our tickets for the Music Hall of Fame and Ryman. Because we are with the tour group our guide signs us in and we skip the line.
Just a side line: I called the Bus Lines to confirm our hotel pick up before we left and they didn't have us registered for the tour. I called the "800" number for Viator. A lovely young lady put me on hold and called the bus lines while I waited. She came back on and had straightened everything out. I appreciated that she did all that while I waited. I didn't have to wait for a call back. Viator is a great company to book tours with. I would suggest taking the Hop On Hop Off tour. For some reason I didn't book that this time and I think we missed out on some things that we would liked to have seen.
