This is something everyone should do before they see the show. It was very informative. Gave you insight to the back stage and all it had to offer for the i performers and staff.
Great experience

Michael was a great tour guide!! Was not too long or too short. Kept all of us engaged the entire time!
The Circle
, Aug 2022
Me most memorable moment was standing at the Circle and visualizing those artist’s who were inducted and those yet to come!
Great Experience (but where are the Oldies?)
, Aug 2022
This place was amazing! We had a wonderful guide, full of information, and gave us a great backstage tour of how the music and TV shows came to life. We loved the insider stories of stars from the past. One thing that struck all four in my party was "why aren't the singers from the past honored as much as the same 10 stars of the present?" We all wished to hear more stories going back to the beginnings of country music. Love Hank SR and JR the way we do? Forget about it!! Not much on Dolly or Johnny Cash, either. And the same certain artists were shown again and again without ever recognizing the pioneers! Sad that a huge part of country history was left out. But overall, very worth the price of admission.
Great tour!

Walking through the path of the artists, seeing where they prepare for the concerts, insights on the way it must feel to be there in person. Tour guide gave a great story on what they go through, where they prepare to go on stage, stories on some of the artists. Had a wonder full time.

I have never been much of a fan of country music but coming here has given me a tremendous respect for it and all of the musicians!
Seeing the stage where so...

Feel like a star on this tour!

Our guide Brandy was wonderful and clearly loves her job! It was so interesting to see the stage from the star’s vantage point. From their entrance to their dressing room and all the way out to the circle on the stage, it was an exciting tour!
Wonderful Experience

Knowledgeable tour guide. Full of history. Worth the time! Photo taken was great. If you like country music, this is a must do.
Seeing where they filmed...
, Aug 2022
Seeing where they filmed “Hee Haw”. I never missed an episode! Standing on the circle. All the different dressing rooms. Seeing the Fan Mail Post Office. I also enjoyed The Garth and Trisha’s introduction about the Opry History. It’s so hard to pick just one thing about the tour. I enjoyed the tour very much.
, Aug 2022
Having all of us together to experience such a historic piece of country music. Standing in the circle center stage was surreal for all of us.
