There was a lot of hotel price talk and not enough about music
Reply From Gray Line:
Hi Michelle, 

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on the recent tour you did with us in Nashville. We're sorry to hear that you felt the guides strayed off the mark concerning the information provided on the tour. While we certainly do want to give the most encompassing view of Nashville during this service, we do understand that what you mentioned might not be the most intriguing information. We'll touch base with our team in Tennessee and send a friendly reminder! 

PS--about the mobile booking. Our web-team is always working to make this mobile format as user friendly as possible, we hope that if you give us a chance on a future tour at one of our other many locations, you'll be able to notice some improvements!
