The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

Perfect Private tour of Nashville-COVID Friendly

Cam was AWESOME! Not only was this an incredible way for a first time visitor to see the whole city, but it was fun and NOT “boring,” per my three teenage boys. Cam was in tune with them, pointed out interesting historical places, but also just showed us cool sights. It was perfect for our family of five. Also very COVID friendly, as it was just us and Cam, all wearing masks outside. It was an extremely affordable, private tour of Nashville! 1000% recommend the tour and Cam! Thank you!

Big Jerry was amazing. He had so much knowledge of Nashville. My only regret is that we took his offer to walk back to our car from the last stop and we forgot to tip him.

When to Get There

To get a feel for Downtown Nashville, plan to visit during the day to take in the cultural attractions and again at night to experience the famous nightlife. There’s live music pretty much every night of the week, but it’s a good idea to take a look at who’s playing beforehand and get tickets, if necessary.
