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.

Cliff was our tour guide and he was awesome, funny and very knowledgeable about the history of Nashville. Also safety first, made sure he secured us in our seat belts and made the experience great. He is happy to take group or individual pictures. Well worth time and money.

Our tour guide Jeremiah was outstanding. Not only was he funny but also super informative and was fantastic with kids. We got to know the downtown Nashville area extremely well and saw numerous things we would not have otherwise if going around on our own. Such a great experience, one that we will never forget. If Jeremiah was doing other tours we would sign up in a heartbeat. 10+ stars!

Nashville Combo Tour: Sightseeing, Murals, and Brewery
Ty was a great tour guide. We now have an up-close view of Nashville because we saw it via golf cart. We saw Midtown, Music Row, Demonbreun Hill, The Gultch, City Park, the Statehouse etc, all from the cart. Ty was very knowledgeable, shared things about himself and showed us bars we will now revisit
