Amazing tour. Would recommend this tour
I had never heard of the Battle of Franklin! Loved the tour and the info we got from our tour guides. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. I really like history, so next time I would do it on my own. VIATOR is very easy to book and hassle free. I would highly recommend them to visitors. But, if you don't mind the hassle of driving yourself and really want to spend time at the sites, I would say to go it on your own. Picked up a book called The Widow of the South at the gift shop. It is about the Battle of Franklin as it arrived on the private Carnton Plantation. Excellent read. Gives many, many details the tour guides would not have time to do during their tour with you.
Great tour. Experience three home tours related to franklin Tennessee the bloodiest civil war battle. Only complaint was the drive home in rush hour traffic.
Great experience concerning Civil War history. Highly recommended.
This was the highlight of my trip. If you love history, this trip is a must. The guides were first rate.
its was a great tour. so much history
THIS TOUR WAS FANTASTIC! I had never heard of the Battle of Franklin before, and now, I will never forget it! You cover three sites and ALOT of information on this tour - every moment of your tour is spent learning about the battle from the moment everyone is on board the bus until you exit the bus. You hear about the battle many time but from different points of view, so you end your day with a very thorough knowledge of the battle and just how awful it really was. If you are a history buff, this is a MUST do! Our driver, Terry, was SO knowledgeable and helpful and friendly but he WILL keep you on schedule! You do have a 50 minute stop for lunch - I do NOT recommend Gina's Italian food. No one in our party cared for it we had pizza and spaghetti. The one negative is that you can not take pictures INSIDE in the houses insurance purposes but I understand why and the policy DOES protect these sites for future visitors so I can't complain too much!
This was the highlight of our trip! I took my 3 teenage children and they recommend this trip as well. The bus tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour guides at our venues were amazing, friendly and astute. Their knowledge of the civil war events, homes and area were extraordinary and their passion comes through. We had several choices for lunch at an eating area. A very insightful and moving tour.
