Nashville, Tennessee, USA

The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

Walk with a little bit of Country, a whole lot of history & a healthy dose of Rock & Roll!
Down town Nashville is such a walkable city with so much history, excitement & charm! My tour guide Ryan was knowledgeable with a healthy dose of humor and can even sing. Our group was treated to a taste of the Pride parade which was very cool. I was thoroughly entertained!

Took this tour right after checking in at our hotel. It was the best thing we did. Hunter took us all around, explained all the areas and attractions, waited while we took pictures, and gave an all around orientation of downtown Nashville. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Super fun and different experience by golf cart. Loved it! Do it!

Our tour guide Jimmy was wonderful. He is knowledgeable, charismatic and made sure we were happy the whole way. We loved touring all the major spots in Nashville in an open air comfortable golf cart which is the perfect compromise between walking the streets and being in a conventional tour bus. The stop at the distillery was delicious and interesting. Thank you Jimmy for a great time!

Luke was a great guide. We have done this tour before and really enjoyed it. Luke took us to some different shops and left it up to us on where we wanted to shop based on the shopping last time. He also told us a little about the different areas of Nashville.
