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.
Your guide was knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. I'd recommend it to anyone.
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.
This was a wonderful tour! There was so much info about Jackson! The displays were great and our driver so knowledgable ! Highly recommend !
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.
Great tour. We enjoyed the history and the tour guide did an excellent job.
Outstanding! My 28 year old daughter and I had a mother/daughter long escape weekend to Nashville. Out of all of the activities there, we enjoyed this the most. Fabulous historic tour and guides and overall a wonderful day. Do not pass this up!!!
Tour was really good. It was a great way to see the Hermitage and Belle Meade Plantation. Lunch was delicious. I would have like to spend more time at the Hermitage so maybe lunch could be moved to 12pm instead of 11:30am.
Even though it was a light rainy day we enjoyed the tour. Very informative and enjoyable. Bus driver kept us entertained.
If you have a day to spend immersed in Nashville history, this is the tour for you. We were picked up from the Gaylord Opryland hotel, but the bus does pick up at some other hotels. The first stop was Jackson's plantation and slave cabins, which were remarkably preserved. Then it was lunch at a 70's-style buffet restaurant which did not serve the best food, but it was fast and cheap. Next, we toured the Belle Meade Plantation and it was very beautiful with many elaborate furnishings. It also had slave cabins, which were worth taking the time to tour and read the history plaques. Also, there is a winery at the Belle Meade, which you had the option to go to and do some wine tasting. We bought some wine to have shipped back to our house. Of course, at both plantation sites there was a gift shop. I highly recommend this tour for history buffs!
From pick up to drop off our tour was excellent. Tour guides were very knowledgeable .
It was a great tour. Definitely do this one if you can. I would have liked to spend more time ar Belle Meade. It seemed too short. The history of it all was excellent.
wonderful history and everything was so neat to learn about. All the tour guides were great and spoke clearly and always had smiles and were polite.

This was an excellent tour. Margaret Mitchell did a tremendous job as the author, revealing much about her life in an amusing and well presented performance. We also learnt a lot about the history of Atlanta.
The only suggestion I'd make is that directions to the slightly out of the way pick up point should be given for visitors using public transport as well as those driving. We planned to walk from Five Points Marta but the surrounding area and Broad Street in particular was the only place in Atlanta we felt somewhat uncomfortable - there was a large police presence on foot and in cars and we overheard talk of trouble the previous night. There are probably better routes to get to the pick up point.
Two beautiful, historic antebellum homes and especially loved the Belle Meade Mansion...the stores there were great to find that perfect gift/or memento and the wine tour was lovely! Really enjoyed sitting on a bench under the old magnolia tree, listening to live music while sipping on a glass of chardonnay at the end of the tour.
I loved it. The bus driver was super nice and it was all so interesting!
Very interesting tour. Good to see how they lived back then and interesting facts about the civil war.
The tour was excellent! The tour guide, Steve, provided valuable information and was able to answer all questions.
