The Basics

Travelers can visit independently or on a Nashville tour—ride a hop-on hop-off trolley and stop at the Ryman Auditorium for a self-guided tour or take a guided backstage tour to see dressing rooms, exhibits, multimedia presentations, historic memorabilia, and artifacts.

Music history buffs may prefer to visit the auditorium on a walking tour of downtown Nashville, to hear stories of the city’s must-see sites, while foodies can stop by the Ryman on a culinary tour. Alternatively, combine a visit with an evening tour of Nashville featuring live music and a traditional barbecue dinner.

Our guide was very enthusiastic about Nashville history and we could tell he loved the city. There was however an event that was happing at the Rumania, so we were not able to tour. While it was no one’s fault, no one offered us compensation so we had to ask for it.

Our guide was knowledgeable and full of southern charm. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to tour the Ryhmen Auditorium, but had extra time at the Hall of Fame museum. This tour is a perfect opportunity to scope out Nashville for a first time visitor.

Discover Nashville City Tour with Entry to Ryman & Country Music Hall of Fame
It was a really great tour and very comprehensive and our tour guide was excellent. However we hopped off the tour at the country music Hall of Fame because we were so thirsty and it was so hot. It would be a great idea to have water available to purchase as it is a very long tour and it was very hot. I think multiple people jumped off the tour because they were too hot and thirsty
