Fine, it was educational and interesting.

Decent, but rent your own car and do it on your own. Not worth it.

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.
