  • The driver was very rude.

  • Entertaining, yet very instructional tour made the Civil War come alive.

  • It was a wonderful trip from start to finish! We learned a lot about the battle and visited some beautiful homes. Our driver and tour guide was great and gave us so much information. It was an outstanding tour.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! While it was an all day adventure we didn't even realize the time because there was not a dull moment. Each of the guides including our driver did an excellent job of taking us back in time and painting the scene for us with their insightful knowledge. A day well spent!

  • Loved this very moving and great historical information.

  • Great tour but too rushed. No time for shopping downtown. Between each tour quite rushed. Tour guides very interesting. Only a half hour for lunch in between house tours.

  • A very touching and informative trip. However, it would be nice if more time was given to explore. We did the 3 part tour and most of the talk was repetitive.

  • This tour is very interesting! You get to see beautiful Franklin and it is so nice to have someone drive you there, drop you off and enjoy.

  • WOW! Loved this tour. Great Guide who shared a lot of historical information. The places that we visited we very interesting - it's like stepping back in time and reviewing the Civil War battle that occurred in Franklin. If I had a complaint, it'd be that our break for lunch needed to be at a restaurant with more options than just BBQ food. We had children in our group who are not particularly fond of that type of food for every meal. :

  • Good historical info.
