What You Can Expect

Make your way to downtown Nashville, where you’ll meet a local guide and set out on a route through the city’s most famous and infamous places. Trace a route from 5th and Broadway to the oldest home in the city of Nashville, then see Ryman Auditorium, the original home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Pass Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge—this country honky-tonk is among Nashvilles most notorious—then walk down Market Street to the Riverfront Park, once home to a booming river trade. Take in views of the Tennessee Titans stadium, the Cumberland River, and the original site of Fort Nashborough.

Continue to Nashville Public Square to hear stories about Andrew Jackson’s many duels. Dive into Printers Alley and the Men’s Quarter to see Nashville’s seedy, fun side: this is where Johnny Cash drank at Skull’s Rainbow Room, and where Little Richard and Hendrix practiced the blues before they were famous.

Turn up Cherry Street to pay your respects to Chet Atkins’ statue, then stop by the Tennessee State Capitol building and the Downtown Presbyterian Church before winding up your tour back in central Nashville.

Ryan was a great tour guide and host. He showed us around Nashville, where we learned about the city, its history and culture. I highly recommend doing the walking tour at the beginning of your trip so you have more of an insight while you are visiting.

We had a great guide on this walking tour! It was pretty warm the day we went, and there is a LOT of walking, so wear some comfortable shoes! We learned so much about the history of Nashville, and went in and out of several interesting clubs and buildings. i have learned so much from these walking tours, and make it a point to include them in my itinerary in every city I visit!

I am an official two-timersomeone who has taken two of Ryans amazing Nashville tours. If yall are looking for fun and historical and educational tours of Nashville, look no further than Really Entertaining Tours. I give Ryan TEN stars and will definitely book his tours again the next time I am in town.

My mother and I booked his walking tour and bar crawl. During the walking tour, we learned about Nashvilles history and stories that history books never teach you. This tour also helps you draw out a mental map of the downtown area and you will feel like a local when Ryan sets you free. The bar crawl tour was exactly what we were looking for a tour that gives you an inside look at the more non-tourist bars of Nashville. Lets just say that this tour brought out some honky tonky my mom and I joined our entire group on stage for karaoke at the end of the tour! We are not even heavy drinkers, but the drinks we had were cheap and strong!

Dont hesitate to book all of Ryans tours when visiting Nashville. Ryan also makes himself readily available via text to all of his clients. I texted him multiple times for advice on places to go and he always responded very quickly. He is a great tour guide and a genuinely great person. His love of Nashville is infectious although who cant help but fall in love with Music City?!
