Know More about this tour

Start at the center of Nashville's entertainment universe, 5th Avenue and Broadway, the heart of Nashville's Entertainment District. See the oldest residence in Nashville, the legendary Ryman Auditorium - original home of the Grand Ole Opry, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge - America's most famous honky tonk. and 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 were the rule and never the exception. 

Take a walk 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. Amazing views of The Cumberland River, Titans' Stadium, and an exact replica of Nashville's first settlement Fort Nashborough, where we relive the spot where the Cherokee almost ended Tennessee's capital before it got started, abound. Head to Nashville Public Square and meet Andrew Jackson, Tennessee's most (in)famous president, whose exploits in war were only eclipsed by the infamy of his decisions. Off to Printers Alley (Nashville's historic "Men's Quarter"); here the seedy and oft-fun side of Nashville reveals Skull's Rainbow Room, one of Johnny Cash's favorite haunts, along with the site of The Jolly Roger, where Little Richard and Jimi Hendrix cut their chops before skyrocketing to stardom.

Continue onto Cherry Street (4th Avenue today), whose inotoriety 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 America's most stunning. 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 original Maxwell House, and we are then back in honky tonk heaven between Tootsie's and The Ryman, where many a country legend would sneak a drink or five before taking the stage.

  • We had a great guide on this walking tour! It was pretty warm the day we went, and there is a LOT of walking, so wear some comfortable shoes! We learned so much about the history of Nashville, and went in and out of several interesting clubs and buildings. i have learned so much from these walking tours, and make it a point to include them in my itinerary in every city I visit!

  • I am an official two-timersomeone who has taken two of Ryans amazing Nashville tours. If yall are looking for fun and historical and educational tours of Nashville, look no further than Really Entertaining Tours. I give Ryan TEN stars and will definitely book his tours again the next time I am in town.

    My mother and I booked his walking tour and bar crawl. During the walking tour, we learned about Nashvilles history and stories that history books never teach you. This tour also helps you draw out a mental map of the downtown area and you will feel like a local when Ryan sets you free. The bar crawl tour was exactly what we were looking for a tour that gives you an inside look at the more non-tourist bars of Nashville. Lets just say that this tour brought out some honky tonky my mom and I joined our entire group on stage for karaoke at the end of the tour! We are not even heavy drinkers, but the drinks we had were cheap and strong!

    Dont hesitate to book all of Ryans tours when visiting Nashville. Ryan also makes himself readily available via text to all of his clients. I texted him multiple times for advice on places to go and he always responded very quickly. He is a great tour guide and a genuinely great person. His love of Nashville is infectious although who cant help but fall in love with Music City?!

  • If you travel to Nashville, the first thing you should do is take the LIVE NASHVILLE WALKING TOUR...Although the tour says it's 90 minutes our guide Ryan spent extra time with us and the tour was about 2 hours. Ryan was excellent. He has an extensive knowledge of the History of Nashville and everything the town has to offer. He was also very entertaining and considerate since the temperate was in the teens the day we took the tour 12/28/17. I recommend taking this Walking Tour before you do anything else upon your arrival in Nashville.

  • Who did we enjoyable and educational tour Ryan is awesome, it was completely worth it very recommended I'm sure we will do it again.

  • Very interesting and good fun

  • Great walking tour of Nashville with Ryan who is a wonderful guide and very informative.

  • This is a fantastic 1.5 hour walking tour to learn about the history of Nashville - its founding, its capital, its buildings both old and new, Andrew Jackson, women's suffrage, lunch counter sit-ins, the Ryman, Skull's, Printer Alley, and of course its music. Ryan is a great story teller and makes history come alive as we walked the streets of days gone by to the bustling music filled streets of today. Highly recommend.

  • Great tour! I highly recommend this tour if visiting Nashville.

  • Enjoyed the walking tour. Lots of history in Nashville. Ryan was a very interesting character with a memory full of facts. Sometimes would get off topic and I would wonder what the final point was supposed to be. It was good value for our money.

  • Fun tour. Enjoyed all the history and lore of Nashville.
