First off, there was RED! our tour guide. What a great gal and great job she did. I will be talking her up to friends planning a Nashville getaway as we just did. She was so informative about all things Nashville. Who can complain when you start off with a Bushwhacker? :) The food stops were great,,,loved it all! Rich and Carol

An absolutely wonderful tour and a great way to start your trip and become oriented to Nashville. Scott, our guide, was very informative and provided a lot about what one could do while in Nashville. The BBQ at Martin’s was Fantastic - but all was great!!! Highly recommend.

Nashville food, neighborhoods, and history

This was one of the best city tours I have done - getting to know a city through its food plus seeing neighborhoods and sights and learning about history including music. The restaurant selections had good food and were reflective of Nashville (barbecue and Christie's cookies!). Our guide Kurt was knowledgeable and genial. I was on my own, and the other people in the group were friendly and fun. Highly recommended.

It's so fun to explore a new place with others, isn't it? We love it when people on the tour mention that element - meeting fellow explorers - and we are so glad that you enjoyed Kurt's company, the food, sights, history, and as much as we could pack into 3 hours for you. Thank you so much for joining us and for the very kind 5 stars!

Guide was entertaining. Interesting good stops which was cool. Places we would not have found had we not gone on the tour. would have been nice to have a little more tone at each stop.

Hi Marlita, Thanks for taking the time to share your review and feedback. We're so glad you enjoyed yourself and happy to introduce you to some of the hidden gems of Music City. With three hours and five tastings we do our best to cover a lot of ground and spend about 15-20 minutes at each stop. We hope you'll return to some of the spots you love the most to spend a little more time and try even more of their amazing food and drink.
