What You Can Expect

Historic Tennessee - Southern Plantations and Presidents

The Hermitage, home and final resting place of Andrew Jackson

This historic Tennessee tour begins with a downtown Nashville hotel pickup, followed by a 30-minute drive east to the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s historical plantation home. Explore the mansion, just like President Jackson and his staff did back in 1836. Then visit the museum and its exhibits as well as the garden and grounds, featuring farm buildings, slave sites, a tulip grove, a church and more.

For lunch (own expense), try the onsite Hermitage House Smorgasbord, serving a buffet of Southern staples, including fried chicken and fritters, or the Kitchen Cabinet, with delicious southern-style picnic fare.

In the afternoon, take another 30-minute ride — this time back west towards Nashville — to the Belle Meade Plantation. Known as the Queen of the Tennessee Plantations, this historic mansion was a world-renowned thoroughbred horse farm and nursery in the 19th century. It’s a classic example of southern Greek revival antebellum architecture. Tour the original stable, carriage house, dairy, slave cabins and more, then close with a relaxing wine tasting at the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation.

The tour ends with a downtown Nashville hotel drop-off.

This tour was extremely fun and very informative. Not to mention the delish restraunt we ate at for lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour to history lovers and anyone fascinated with this time period. We also loved our business driver Steve, he was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

Be ready for a lot of walking at The Hermitage! Beautiful grounds. The house tour is good, but you must climb stairs. We only looked in at the rooms. At Bellemead, we had time to view the carriage house. We were able to step into most rooms. We received a very thorough history of the house and family.

The tour was wonderful. However we were told we and #39;d be picked up at our hotel between 8:30 and 9:15. At 8:05 we got a call from Grayline asking if we could be ready at 8:00. The driver arrived at 8:06 and said he and #39;d only wait 5 min. It put a lot of pressure on us and we had to unfairly rush
