I was so grateful to have the opportunity to get on a bus and have an informed guide tell me the history of Nashville. Especially at such an affordable price. Also, to have them come to your hotel and pick you up saves on travel fiasco's. It was so simple and kept my trip relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you!

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.

Trip was great, Bill the bus driver was fun. The children at Jackson property were wonderful and added to the day. Their parents should be very proud of them. Would recommend doing tour as finding your way around Nashville is confusing.

I had lots of fun, the story teller at the second plantation was phenomenal. Thanks so much :)

Great if you are a history buff. I found that we had a little too much time at Belle Meade (there isn't much else to do after the tour), and I'd suggest that the "lunch" be allowed at the plantation restaurant instead of a random buffet that was less than spectacular.

This was great - needed more time though it might have seemed like a long time there but the place is huge - tour guide was very knowlagable

We enjoyed this tour. Lot of walking. Would be nice to be able to rent a golf cart to go from one place to the next.

A good trip for anyone interested in the History of the area. Having researched Belle Meade before visiting I would have liked to have spent more time here exploring on my own, this was not permissible due to the amount of time allotted.

I feel that the places we visited were wonderful and I enjoyed seeing the estates and their grounds. However, there was not enough time at these stops - the Hermitage especially. Several passengers expresses their disappointment in not getting to see most of the plantation.
Also we were in such a rush that we didn't have time to eat anything. The tour was several hours so having time set aside for lunch would have been nice.
The tour guide was informative, though, and it was nice to explore these stops on our own. I am glad that I booked this trip but also think it was a bit pricey.

It was good but the pick up from the hotel was late, thus we got to the Hermitage late, did not get to see anything but the house and the grave. Did not get to eat lunch-tour guide did not even know the restaurant was closed. Belle Meade was a long tour and we had to leave after the house tour-got there too late to eat. The driver was not a good one.

I was "very disappointed" that Belle Mead Plantation did not offer the audio to tour participants while they offered the audio to all general admissions paying less than tour participants. For this reason alone, I would NOT recommend this tour.
