The Basics

Travelers can visit independently or on a Nashville tour—ride a hop-on hop-off trolley and stop at the Ryman Auditorium for a self-guided tour or take a guided backstage tour to see dressing rooms, exhibits, multimedia presentations, historic memorabilia, and artifacts.

Music history buffs may prefer to visit the auditorium on a walking tour of downtown Nashville, to hear stories of the city’s must-see sites, while foodies can stop by the Ryman on a culinary tour. Alternatively, combine a visit with an evening tour of Nashville featuring live music and a traditional barbecue dinner.

Discover Nashville City Tour with Entry to Ryman & Country Music Hall of Fame
This was perfect for our first full day in Nashville to get to know the city and make plans for our days to follow in Nashville. Our guide, Leonard, was full of knowledge and presented it factually and w/humor. He made the experience comfortable for all the guests. Perfect to have the two museum tickets included and ready to go. You also get a free complimentary photo at the Ryman for all those in your party. Definitely recommend this tour!
