Know More about this tour

Your 6.5-hour Tennessee history tour begins with a comfortable charter bus ride to the stately manor of Andrew Jackson, The Hermitage. Home of the seventh U.S. president, historians consider President Jackson’s Hermitage the best preserved early presidential home. Explore its quarters just as President Jackson and his staff did back in 1836.

Stroll the lovely formal gardens, then visit the slave quarters, the estate’s original 1804 cabin and the sight where this president and his wife were laid to rest. Afterward, lunch is on your own accord at the on-site historic Hermitage Smorgasbord, offering a traditional Southern Buffet, including dessert. From there, continue on your chartered bus ride to the Belle Meade Mansion.

Known as the Queen of the Tennessee Plantations, the Belle Meade Plantation was the centerpiece of a 5,200-acre estate, world-renowned as a thoroughbred stud farm and nursery in the 19th century. It’s a prime example of Southern Greek Revival Antebellum architecture. The present 30-acre site features 10 outbuildings which include an 1832 slave cabin and a colossal carriage house and stables.

The day comes to a leisurely close with a wine tasting session at the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation in the afternoon. Sip the estate’s wines, such as chardonnay and cabernet, while enjoying views of the vineyards, then board the bus to return to Nashville.

  • This was a very informative tour with lots of time to look around the plantation. If you are a history buff, take this tour and see the lovely house and grounds.

  • The Hermitage was interesting but a guide for the whole tour would have been better. The Belle Meade tour was horrible. The tour guide did not want to be a guide, told us so and the whole tour was over in 20 minutes and then they wanted to sell us wine. The Belle Meade was a great disappointment.

  • It was a very nice tour and the driver/guide was very accommodating , but the narration left a little to be desired.

  • Generally ok and worthwhile. The pace was slow. The driver was a driver not a well informed guide he offered little commentary along the way. If we had rented a car, the two major attractions would have been easy enough to get to on our own at our own pace.

  • Our tour was everything we expected. Our tour guide has a lot of knowledge and the place we went to eat was very outstanding.

  • Great tour guide.

  • Fun day for a solo traveler! A Viator tour is the way to go!

  • tour guide was incredible...funny and vey knowledgeable..a must see

  • This was a wonderful way to see both the Hermitage and Belle Meade Plantation. The tour guide was very informative and professional. At both sites the tour guides were exceptional, especially the junior docents at the Hermitage. Don't miss the duel.
    The lunch was very good and gave a wide variety of choices.

  • What a great tour and once again thank you Viator your organisation is first class.we highly recommend this tour.
