What You Can Expect

Historic Tennessee - Southern Plantations and Presidents

The Hermitage, home and final resting place of Andrew Jackson

This historic Tennessee tour begins with a downtown Nashville hotel pickup, followed by a 30-minute drive east to the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s historical plantation home. Explore the mansion, just like President Jackson and his staff did back in 1836. Then visit the museum and its exhibits as well as the garden and grounds, featuring farm buildings, slave sites, a tulip grove, a church and more.

For lunch (own expense), try the onsite Hermitage House Smorgasbord, serving a buffet of Southern staples, including fried chicken and fritters, or the Kitchen Cabinet, with delicious southern-style picnic fare.

In the afternoon, take another 30-minute ride — this time back west towards Nashville — to the Belle Meade Plantation. Known as the Queen of the Tennessee Plantations, this historic mansion was a world-renowned thoroughbred horse farm and nursery in the 19th century. It’s a classic example of southern Greek revival antebellum architecture. Tour the original stable, carriage house, dairy, slave cabins and more, then close with a relaxing wine tasting at the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation.

The tour ends with a downtown Nashville hotel drop-off.

We enjoyed this tour during our recent Nashville trip. Our tour guide, Steve, was very informative, very nice, and a good driver. Both homes were very interesting to see and had nice grounds to walk around. Also, the wine tasting at Belle Meade was fun. We did not have a car while in Nashville and found this tour to be a very efficient and reasonably priced way to see things outside of the downtown area.

The tour was very informative. The bus driver and tour guides very fantastic. Loved the fact that they pick you up at your hotel and drop you off. This is such a plus when you are traveling to a new city.

Loved this tour! Spent the well paced tour visiting Andrew Jackson's beautiful estate and the Belle Meade Plantation. Lunch was great, something for everyone at a very reasonable cost. Can't beat the convenience of hotel pick up and drop off. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time. 2 hours at each location was ideal and we had time to wander around on our own. The tour guides at each location were very knowledgeable and friendly and willing to answer all our questions.

The lunch location was very reasonable at 11 per person for a buffet lunch.

The bus pick up was prompt and when two people failed to arrive at one of the stops , a quick call was made and we moved on when they did not answer. The bus driver was very knowledgeable and gave lots of interesting stories and information.
