This was an excellent tour. My friend and I booked our tickets ahead of time and it was so easy. We stayed at an AirBNB in Nashville so we just took an uber to the meeting point--not too bad. Our tour guide was very friendly and we all enjoyed the lunch stop--kind of a 70's buffet vibe but I felt like it added to the experience. The guide even gave us an amazing lunch recommendation for the next day--MoNell's. Best food we had the whole trip! They give you ample time at each location. We were able to wander the grounds and see everything at the Hermitage in plenty of time. We did the house and grounds tour first, which I would recommend so you don't spend too much of your time in the museum at Hermitage. Belle Meade was almost a little too much time but I like that they err on the side of too much time rather than too little! I am SO glad we booked this tour as it gave us a wider history of Nashville and we walked away with more memories than downtown alone could offer.
The tour was very informative and I enjoyed it. The bus driver was very helpful and his information was spot on.
Our tour docent at the Bell Meade Plantation was totally AMAZING. Thanks Rob for all the history you were able to tell us about.
Interest tour. There was a lot to see and we enjoyed it very much.
The Hermitage was in amazing condition from President Jackson's ownership. We were amazed at the knowledgeable women guiding us and how beautiful the house and grounds were kept.
We had the best time! Even when it rained in the afternoon at the Plantaion!
We loved this tour. The history in Tennessee is chilling and so interesting. Our tour guide was so nice and gave us so much information. He also gave us ideas for our next trip. I would recommend this tour to everyone who visits
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
The bus driver was very nice and kept everybody well informed. The bus was very and we had a very enjoyable trip. All the people at each mansion may feel we welcome. the lunch was out standing. I would recommend this tour anyone, young and old.
This tour was amazing!! Our bus driver was very knowledgable about history of area and offered insight regarding historical buildings as we drove as well as the history of Andrew Jaxkson an Belle Meade.
The Belle Meade Plantation Tour was OUTSTANDING!!! What a house, with ALL the original furnishings.
Rob was an excellent guide... his information and presentation was one of the best I have ever experienced in my travels.
As a person who enjoys historical tours and sight seeing I may be a little biased. Viator picked us up at our hotel and brought us out to the first stop which was Andrew Jackson's Hermitage. The tour was self-guided and we started by walking down the hall reading the timeline of significant achievements Jackson has made over his years. We then stepped outside and following the walkway around the property. We lined up for a tour of his mansion which was kept in pristine shape. We also toured his garden which many people were buried including Jackson. From slave cabins to the smokehouse everything was informative and eyeopening. The tour bus stopped for lunch at a plaza with a couple different places to eat additional cost, and then we took off to the next location, Belle Meade. This plantation was also a great tour. The guide gives an informative lesson on horse racing as the plantation owner was a huge fan of racing horses. There was a complimentary wine tasting at the end with about 4 small glasses of wine 3 second pours. Overall, I'd highly recommend this tour if you are narrowed down to choosing one.
Steve the bus driver was very informative. The docents at the mantions were knowledgeable.
I recommend the fried chicken at Hermitage Smorgasbord.
We enjoyed this tour during our recent Nashville trip. Our tour guide, Steve, was very informative, very nice, and a good driver. Both homes were very interesting to see and had nice grounds to walk around. Also, the wine tasting at Belle Meade was fun. We did not have a car while in Nashville and found this tour to be a very efficient and reasonably priced way to see things outside of the downtown area.
Your guide was knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. I'd recommend it to anyone.
The tour was very informative. The bus driver and tour guides very fantastic. Loved the fact that they pick you up at your hotel and drop you off. This is such a plus when you are traveling to a new city.
This was a wonderful tour! There was so much info about Jackson! The displays were great and our driver so knowledgable ! Highly recommend !
Loved this tour! Spent the well paced tour visiting Andrew Jackson's beautiful estate and the Belle Meade Plantation. Lunch was great, something for everyone at a very reasonable cost. Can't beat the convenience of hotel pick up and drop off. Highly recommend this tour.
