Your tour passes by many important areas, including Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Printers Alley, Ryman Auditorium, and the Downtown Presbyterian Church. As you walk, listen to your guide tell stories about record producers, honky-tonk outlaws, gamblers, thieves, and civil rights heroes that made Nashville the way it is today. See a pre-Prohibition saloon, as well as the place where Andrew Jackson fought a historic duel. Your Nashville city tour ends where it began. Before you part with your guide, ask for recommendations for the rest of your visit.

This was a great walking tour. The guide, Ryan, was so entertaining that we forgot the heat and were instantly immersed and inspired. It was absolutely the best part of our three day sojourn in Nashville.

We booked the walking tour with Ryan through our hotel concierge who used TripAdvisor. Ryan is fun, knowledgeable and overall an excellent guide. He had great knowledge of the history and the sites and can engage all ages on his tour. You don’t even realize...More
