Loved it all- the variety of information was great. History, architecture, music. Food was wonderful. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and helped to come up with ideas about that to do for the remainder of our trip.

TJ was a great guide plus he is the owner. We started off with a whiskey tasting. Loved all the stops we made. He picked up the hot chicken and we ate at the steps of Centennial Park, just beautiful

A Must Do Tour!!!!!
Richard_K

Wow! This tour started out with a tasting of 5 different distilled alcoholic drinks. Then we got to take a mixed drink with us on the bus. We made four stops. Red, our tour guide, went above and beyond what you could possibly expect. Her nickname should be Wonder Woman instead of Red. She drove the van from place to place and talked the whole time about Nashville and giving us all kinds of background information about the city and also about the different neighborhoods she took us through. She also served us at all the stops and bussed the tables. First stop was the Donut Distillery. Crazy! We got donuts and alcohol. Next stop was Martin’s BBQ Joint for brisket, ribs and Moon Pie! Our third stop was Hattie B’s where she picked up Hot Chicken, Mac and cheese and pickles. Finally, our last stop was to pick up a Christy cookie! All of that was really penny’s on the dollar. If you miss this tour you are missing out on a great experience! Tip Red generously and then give her a little extra!! 🙃

The overall experience and places we saw and ate at were all amazing. However, we did not find out until we arrived that the air conditioning was not working. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable. We were not compensated for it at all and given the price of the tour I was a little surprised.

I think this tour was the best way to start our trip. You got lots of great insight on the city and could figure out what you wanted to go back to and visit. Our tour guide, Nathan, was great and very knowledgeable of the area. All the food samplings were nice. The only thing I wish was we got to try the signature Bushwacker. The tour states you do but when I asked it was just the walking tour. Excellent tour and would definitely recommend.

The food was great but way too much. Very disappointed that we were supposed to get the Bushwacker and we did not. Our guide was great!

Hi Patricia! Thanks for taking the time to share your review. We do offer generous portions on the tour and we're glad you enjoyed them! We'll take a look for where we might mention the Bushwhacker specifically.... let us know if you saw something that promised it! Since the pandemic, we normally offer a Frozen Gin & Ginger cocktail and spirits tasting at the distillery that guests greatly enjoy, but we can absolutely point you to some great Bushwhackers outside the tour! So glad you enjoyed the tour and your guide!

DISAPPOINTED
Susie_M

I booked this trip because I had taken this tour earlier in the year and it was so fun and interesting. This time, with a different tour guide, it was an awful experience. The tour guide was rude, disrespectful and discriminatory. If you take this tour request one of the male guides. I have contacted the company to discuss the details of our unfortunate experience.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks for your time on the phone today, Susie, to discuss your views of the tour. In all of our decade of providing tours we have just this one time had to ask guests who were disruptive or inebriated whether they would prefer to leave the tour. We will need to agree to disagree that discussing Dolly Parton's contribution to Covid Vaccine Research discriminates against those who find the vaccine politically sensitive, and that mentioning man-buns and skinny jeans as a reference to hipster culture is discriminatory against people's looks. Showing up late, your preference for dancing in a moving van, and loudly interrupting guests, vendors and our guide is something that we handled with as much grace as could be mustered and we're sorry that we couldn't meet your expectations.

Tour was good but Red the guide was a bit rude to others within the group. It made for an awkward trip for the rest of us. They were loud but seemed to bother the tour guide more than the rest of us.

Thanks so much for joining the tour! We did have a rare group of unruly guests who left the tour early and we did the best we could to manage that situation. Apologies to you, and to Red, for that. We're glad you enjoyed the tour in spite of the disruption and promise you that Red is as fun as it gets under normal circumstances!
