Was a great tour. Only suggestion is to be more clear that you start at a distillery for families like us that don’t drink. Other than that we really enjoyed the tour.

Hi John, So glad you enjoyed the tour! A cocktail and spirits tasting is part of most of our tours, but we're always happy to share a mocktail for our non-imbibing guests alongside the fun insights into how distilling works. Thanks for joining us!

The guide was talking crap behind our backs because we were laughing. Will not go again or recommend it again. The the van had no A/C that’s why we had to make our own fun.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Heckling our guide to the point of tears isn't regarded as fun for most people. The other guests on the van were gracious enough to forgive your group's rude, loud, and drunken behavior, but we would prefer that you not book with our company in the future as we discussed with you at the end of the tour. As a point of fact, the van you rode in had come back from Ford service with a new AC blower two days prior to your visit and is working properly. We're sorry that our tour wasn't suited to your group but hope you enjoyed your time in Nashville and suggest that you join a party bus or bar crawl on your next visit.

Enjoyed seeing the town so we know where we want to go spend more time. It was hard to see a lot out of the van though. Food was good everywhere we went!

Thank you so much for joining us. We're happy that we were able to introduce you to places you could explore further on your own and that you enjoyed the variety of food and drink!

I am huge on sports history and learning how some of the roots of basketball happened here was such a joy to hear. Scott was very knowledgeable and one of the best story tellers I’ve ever had.

Let start by stating I never write reviews but this tour deserves it! The best!! My sister and I surprised our mom for her 70th birthday with a trip to Nashville. This tour was AMAZING! It was the perfect combination of siteseeing and enough food/drink to leave you full and content. You MUST request “Red” as your guide! I posted her pic above. She was adorable, knowledgeable, hospitable, spunky with lots of energy and personality. We would do this again! Highly recommend.

Our tour guide was Red and she was very funny! That made the 3 hour tour go by very fast. I wish we had done this tour on our FIRST day instead of our LAST day in TN. Of course we went to 4 different food establishments (Donut Distillery, Martin's BBQ, Red's 615 Kitchen and Sweet Creations) but we also got a little tour of Nashville history and I really appreciated that. We saw so many things that I wish I had time to go back to visit them all. If you like food and culture, this is a great tour. NOTE: you will need to pay to park!

TJ was a great guide plus he is the owner. We started off with a whiskey tasting. Loved all the stops we made. He picked up the hot chicken and we ate at the steps of Centennial Park, just beautiful
