Incredibly interesting overall and the guides for each site were passionate, funny and told some really great stories, keeping us entertained throughout.
The driver was knowledgable and entertaining. The 3 tour guides on the places we visited cared about the history and made the trip worth every penny.
Entertaining, yet very instructional tour made the Civil War come alive.
It was a wonderful trip from start to finish! We learned a lot about the battle and visited some beautiful homes. Our driver and tour guide was great and gave us so much information. It was an outstanding tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! While it was an all day adventure we didn't even realize the time because there was not a dull moment. Each of the guides including our driver did an excellent job of taking us back in time and painting the scene for us with their insightful knowledge. A day well spent!
This tour is very interesting! You get to see beautiful Franklin and it is so nice to have someone drive you there, drop you off and enjoy.
WOW! Loved this tour. Great Guide who shared a lot of historical information. The places that we visited we very interesting - it's like stepping back in time and reviewing the Civil War battle that occurred in Franklin. If I had a complaint, it'd be that our break for lunch needed to be at a restaurant with more options than just BBQ food. We had children in our group who are not particularly fond of that type of food for every meal. :

Absolutely fantastic tour. Our driver was Terry, and he was knowledgeable and funny. Great stories and tidbits while driving to each of the stops. We had Randy at The Carter House, JT at The Lotz House, and Mike at Carnton Plantation. All were great. Genuinely seemed to enjoy what they do, which always helps to make the tour more fun and engaging. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
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.
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.
Fantastic tour that everyone visiting Nashville should do. Extremely interesting guides and history
Informative, well organized and at time moving in the impact on visitors. Our driver gave a wonderful detailed commentary en route and the guides at each of the three locations were incredibly knowledgeable and well prepared and truly conveyed the drama that occurred at each location. My only invitation is to the attendees on the bus: listen to the commentary! That's why we take a guided tour. Our driver dropped the commentary after the loud, animated and unrelated conversation between the two people sitting right behind him one of them a Viator employee! distracted so much from what he was trying to say that he turned off the microphone and the remainder of the drive to site 1 was in silence. We missed out on his expertise but I understand his position completely. If you are going on a tour, be on a tour! Talk about other things and show each other pictures on your iPhones somewhere else and some other time. Other than that - truly a moving, five star Civil War experience.
