Tour Details

Overview

Travel back in time when riverboat gamblers and Indian fighters ruled the day. When honky tonk outlaws and domineering record producers duked it out for control over what would become The Music City. Relive President Andrew Jackson's most famous duel and meet Timothy Demonbreun, the first citizen of Nashville, with his, two wives, three mistresses and, ahem, umpteen kids. Come along as Johnny Cash makes history on the Grand Ole Opry stage...right before he gets kicked off it. If you don't know where to start, start here and get ready to be entertained on this 90-minute romp through Historic Nashville!

Know More about this tour

Start off at the center of Nashville's entertainment universe, 5th & Broadway, right in front of Bridgestone Arena. See the oldest residence in Nashville, the legendary Ryman Auditorium - original home of the Grand Ole Opry, plus Tootsie's Orchid Lounge - America's most famous honky tonk. Time-travel to the days before Prohibition with a stop at Nashville's Silver Dollar Saloon (2nd & Broadway), where drink, song, games of chance, and ladies of the night ruled. 

Cruise down Market Street through Butler's Run to Riverfront Park, where the hustle and bustle of Nashville's river trade made it the 2nd largest city west of the Appalachians. Take in amazing views of Tennessee Titans' Stadium, The Cumberland River, the third longest pedestrian bridge in the world, and the original site of Fort Nashborough, where the Cherokee almost ended Tennessee's capital before it got started. Head to Nashville Public Square and meet Andrew Jackson, the most famous Nashvillian of all time, whose exploits in war were only eclipsed by the infamy of his decisions as the United States' 7th president. Off then to Printers Alley (which journalists called "The Men's Quarter"), where the seedy and sometimes fun side of Nashville highlights Skull's Rainbow Room, one of Johnny Cash's favorite haunts, along with Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar where Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix cut their Blues chops before becoming rock and roll superstars.

Continue onto Cherry Street (4th Avenue today), whose infamy was so great "no modest woman" would dare risk her reputation treading upon it. Through The Arcade we'll make a brief stop at Country Legend Chet Atkins' Statue before a short trek to The Capitol. One of the most stunning in the nation, the Tennessee State Capitol is a treasure trove of history and was instrumental in the Union's defeat of Confederacy. A brief tale of the critical role Nashville played in Women's Suffrage at The Hermitage Hotel and our tour ends with brief stops at Downtown Presbyterian Church, site of The Maxwell House, of coffee fame, and then we are back in honky tonk heaven between Tootsie's and The Ryman Auditorium, where many a country legend would sneak a drink or five before performing.

  • Great tour of Nashville. Ryan the tour guide even remembered my name the next day when running into him and his tour downtown!

  • To information,actually went back to the skull bar and show and was the highlight of our trip.

  • Ryan did a great job giving us a walking tour of downtown Nashville. Do this at the beginning of your stay to get a better feeling of where you are and some interesting history. Im sure that if we didnt do this tour first we would have missed some pretty cool things to know.

  • Ryan was very knowledgeable and was fun to be around. We enjoyed ourselves - and learned a lot! We highly recommend this tour!

  • Great fun and also informative. Great tour guide.

  • Ryan was very knowledgeable of Nashville history and the city's development. He was also a very engaging speaker. My wife and I had never been to Nashville and are not country music listeners. After the tour, we felt more knowledgeable about country music and also the layout of things to do within the city.

  • We learned a great deal about Nashville on this tour as we’re thoroughly entertained.

  • This was a great tour with an overview of the downtown and Ryan did an amazing job with lots of insight.

  • Wonderful trip and our guide was great. He really got everyone involved and gave some great background information on the history of Nashville.
    Easy walk and I recommend this to everyone to take advantage of this wonderful tour!

  • Ryan was a fun, high energy informative guide. Great way to get bearings of downtown and learn the history.
