Tour was good but an outrageous passenger unfairly insulted the driver who kept quiet for a lot of the tour in response to her cursing.

Excellent tours of two plantations. Gorgeous properties that were lovely to walk around the grounds and the houses were beautiful and well restored. Very good tour guides who were interesting to listen to. Bus driver was very nice and also gave good info. Lunch was good. The only thing I would recommend is a new/better tv be installed in the bus - it was hard to see and hear. I liked the idea of watching a short video on the way but the one we saw wasn't working very good.

ITINERARY

Southern plantations, Presidential Estates, and Nashville and Civil War history will all be a part of your day. Known as the "Queen of the Tennessee Plantations", Belle Meade Plantation was the centerpiece of a 5,200 acre plantation. It was world-renowned as a thoroughbred stud farm and nursery in the 19th century. The present 30 acre site features 10 outbuildings, which include an 1832 slave cabin and a colossal carriage house and stables. Your next visit will be the stately manor of Andrew Jackson, The Hermitage. This was the home of our seventh President, and a favorite son of Tennessee. You’ll view the formal gardens, visit the slave quarters, the original 1804 cabin of the estate, and the site where our President and his wife were laid to rest.
