Lots to see at the Hermitage beautiful grounds it’s on 1100 acres with almost all the original home furnishings from Andrew Jackson amazing history and really good documentary. Well worth a visit and for those they’re are local the annual family pass is very inexpensive

Driver/narrator was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Nashville area. Carriage was very clean and when he turned on the lights it was beautifull. Got to give a lot of credit to the horse Jules-Julie. We had five people in the carriage.

They were very communicative, the ride was smooth, and we rather enjoyed it. Always make sure to tip, they work hard for it. They even let us pet her when we were finished. thanks for the trip guys.

We had so much fun! We were just so amazed at the beautiful Belgian Mule “Jane” she is so well trained and smart mule toured us around with her pretty handler! We all loved it!

Walking was long but had many benches along the way Beautiful grounds to enjoy Very informative information on the president’s life Great activity to do
