This was one of the best tours we've ever taken. The behind the scenes of the the Grand Ole Opry is truly amazing -- country music fan or not. The Opryland Resort was fabulous as well. Just the right amount of time for touring and a great learning experience.
Impressed with how they kept the original felling of the Grand Ole Opry. Loved the Resort.
Our tour guide Terry did an outstanding tour presentation for our group. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours of the Grand Ole Opry House and the Opryland Resort. He provided us with significant historical information of the Nashville area which makes us want to do a return trip.
Tour guide... personable and knowledgeable. .. bus guide was lovely and on time... everything was great!
this was a great tour but seemed to be rushed but over all I like it
We were disappointed on how our tours began. We made them before leaving. We even received a phone call prior to leaving verifying where our hotel was for pick up on Monday and Wednesday. 4/29 and 5/01. We were at the Courtyard Marriott, on 4th Ave. We were told to be out there between 1:00pm and 1:15pm. Our tour was begin on 4/29 the Nashville Grande Ole Opry House and Hotel. On Monday we were waiting and waiting and no one ever showed up at 1:30pm . We called and were told that had use staying at the Opryland Hotel. They sent someone to pick us up and drop us off and the train station downtown where another driver picked up us. By the time we got to the Opry House the tour was way under way. Several drivers from your company could not understand why they had us down for pick up and the Opryland Hotel. We ended up changing our tour to Tuesday to go to the Stars homes and Wed to the Opry House and Resort. This changes our plans for both days as we had things scheduled in between. The driver when we got to the Opry House took us to the Country Music Hall of Fame where they dropped us onff on that Monday. Not a good start and very disappointing. Overall we loved the city of Nashville, the people, food and entertainment. I would however like to Commend your driver names "JIM".
Great personality. We had him over the 3 days as our driver. He could not believe it and kidded around when he addressed everyone on the bus that we had been together for awhile. THis was on a positve note. Great person. Very knowledgeable. Entertaining... So overall not a good start for a retirement get away we had been planning for while.
Enjoyed the tour of thr Grand Ole Opry. Tour guides at the Opry were outstanding. Opryland Resort Tour was OK. If the boat ride was an optional choice we would have skipped it. Not sure what to make of the driver/tourguide. He seemed more concerned about sticking to his agenda/timeframe than us enjoying the tour. Driving to and from the "Opry" it felt like we were going excessively fast on the highway. When I glanced at the speedometer it looked like we were doing 70 in a 55mph zone. Driver braked hard when a police car appeared in the distance. I can't be sure about what I saw on the speedometer though. We'd do the tour again and highly recommend it but would prefer a different guide/driver.
Great tour! Had serious issues with jam packing everyone in the group into one obviously too small river boat at the Opry Hotel. Other than that, great time.
The tour of the Opry was great however it was very rushed to make it to the Opryland Hotel which was not worth touring. It is simply a hotel, and while it is beautiful it is only that. Our tour guide was a bit pushy and our group felt like trouble makers for trying to use the washroom.
Getting to see backstage of the Grand Ole Opry House was spectacular. The information videos at the beginning were really well done with fun cameos so it really built up the excitement being behind the scenes (Tip: If you are going to see a performance at the Opry, they play the same videos). The hotel tour was just okay since the garden and river ride were beautiful, the tour guide was personable, entertaining, and knowledgeable, but the sights can be seen without purchasing a tour so if I were to recommend seeing the hotel I would say just to go and walk around for free (information plaques allow you to learn as you go). Since the tour of the Grand Ole Opry House was so go we would have given the combined tour a 4/5 stars except they asked us to meet downtown where parking was $20, only for us to find out that if we met at the venue site it had FREE parking, so we spent an unnecessary amount on downtown parking and then a cab to return back to our car.
This tour was worth doing if you are visiting Nashville without a car. You see the Grand Ole Opry and the Opryland Hotel. Both are definitely interesting sites to see, especially the Ole Opry with it's rich country music history. I would have liked time on my own at the hotel.
