Take a step back in time to discover the rich history of Tennessee in this tour that highlights the area's role in the Civil War, legendary horse racing, and plantation life.

This intriguing tour will take you back in history as you explore the Civil War and plantation life, and how it affected Tennessee. Belle Meade Plantation will give you an up-close look at slave cabins, outbuildings, carriage house, stables and other buildings that are far removed from the 21st century household. You'll also get to journey through the grounds of the Hermitage, home of President Andrew Jackson. At the Hermitage you'll find sculpted gardens and even a 200-year old cabin that Jackson himself had built. Those looking for a taste of the old south are sure to find the Historic Tennessee Tour to be an interesting look into this romantic era in American history.

About Your Time at the Hermitage
Your day will start at The Hermitage, the home of President Andrew Jackson. Beautifully restored to its condition in 1837, the mansion at the Hermitage still features some original wallpaper, furniture, and personal belongings of the seventh president of the United States. You'll also be able to explore the beautiful gardens, the former slave quarters, and the 200-year-old log cabin that Jackson built to live in during the construction of the mansion.

About Your Time at Belle Meade Mansion
After exploring the land at The Hermitage, your trip will take you to the Belle Meade Mansion, featuring an 1832 slave cabin and 10 outbuildings will almost literally transport you back to the antebellum South where Southern Belles and their gentlemen wandered the grounds. The Belle Meade Plantation was also a successful stud farm that was home to Iroquois, the first American horse to win the English Derby.

About Your Time at the Winery at Belle Meade
The tour ends at the 'Winery at Belle Meade,' Tennessee's newest and Nashville's only winery to date, where you can enjoy a wine tasting. This exciting event is obviously for 21 plus members, but it gives insight into the local wine industry at Belle Meade Plantation's most wonderful winery. 

You are sure to have an amazing time seeing all of the historic places in Nashville, TN. From the Hermitage to Belle Meade Plantation, this exciting tour gives unique insight into Music City. You won't find a tour like it anywhere else, so be sure to book it today!

"I would love to go on this tour again"
I loved learning about history and loved the plantations. The driver was great and he even sang to us on the bus. He was very good and very funny. He gave information about the places we were visiting and also about nashville itself. I would love to go on this tour again, with the same driver.

"Our entire experience was fantastic."
Our entire experience was fantastic. Tribute to the king on Monday, july 18 started our week of awesoMe experiences. Next was the bus tour to herMitage and belle Meade plantations. All our tour guides were so inforMative and gracious - a great historical experience! Wednesday a.M. Was a tour of gaylord opry hotel. That place is huge and the many gardens are better than any botanical gardens and it's air-conditioned! We asked how they were affected by the flood of 2010 and were astounded by the amount of damage and how quickly they were able to recover. That evening was the grand ole opry. Even though we hadn't heard of any of them, each performer just got better! The harmony and instrument playing were fantastic! Thursday was a tour of music row and downtown bars. Each establishment had at least one live band, tootsie's had three! 'interesting to walk where all the great country stars had made their hits. On the general jackson tour that evening, the downtown skyline at sunset was so beautiful, the food was very delicious and the show was absolutely amazing. Our only bad experience was on this night - a very rude and inattentive waiter. On friday, we had a glassblowing session with jose at franklin glassblowing and made some beautiful pieces which we had to pick up the next day. Then we toured the holtz house in franklin and had the best tour guide of them all, laura, a fifth generation franklinite! The loveless café that evening was also a big hit! I would recommend a vacation in nashville anytime. Our next vacation there we'll take in the sights and activities we didn't get to experience on this 2016 trip.
