Well organized and professional tour. Great day!
Excellent trip. Lunch at the Smorgasbord was very good value.
Very informative if you are interested in history.
A lovely day was spent with extremely knowledgeable historian guides, including the bus driver, touring two Southern plantations. I especially appreciated the way facts were presented as they would have happened in the day without sugarcoating. History is what it was. The Belle Meade Plantation has been very well maintained with historical artifacts that have been there from the beginning or repurchased. The only disappointment of the day was the closed off areas of the Hermitage, Andrew Jackson's home, due to refurbishing and upgrading fire suppressant equipment, but there was still plenty to see.
The lunch was great at the Hermitage Buffet - very authentic Southern, as my Granny used to make. And the wine tasting room at the Belle Meade Plantation was very entertaining with acceptable wines presented.
We went on this trip the weekend of New Year's Eve. It happened to be a cold spell in Nashville and the temp was about 10 degrees.
We all really liked the tour so much. The bus ride was very nice and both sites were beautiful. It was too cold to walk around the grounds but the grounds looked like they were spectacular. We we do it again in the warmer weather when the gardens are in bloom.
The tour was great. It is run by Grayline and that driver mainly just shuttles you from place to place. There was a guide at each place that gave you historic information at each place you visited. Lunch was awesome and affordable!
The President's house and Bel Meade were a great part of our trip. The lunch wasn't fantastic, but it was fine - there was enough to choose from for everyone I'd have thought.
This was a very informative tour with lots of time to look around the plantation. If you are a history buff, take this tour and see the lovely house and grounds.
