Good tour if you are looking to see some of the homes around Nashville and get out and walk around the cemetery.

Christopher (aka Tuh-fah) was amazing!!! Of all of the different tours to choose from, I feel like we scored big picking this one! We were able to get a lot of history in, see all of the sites we were hoping to see, and our tour guide was on point with his knowledge and humor! I went with my 16 year old daughter and she was equally impressed. We were in a small group (short bus) and were picked right up from our hotel lobby and he dropped us off at a shopping mall on our way back. 5 stars all of the way!!!
