Not just walking tours, we now offer bicycle tours and rentals too. The ghost tour is our most popular tour, but visitors also love hearing about the rich past that lies just beneath the surface of Franklin's quaint Victorian charm. Site of "the most famous battle you've never heard of," according to National Geographic, Franklin's Civil War story will amaze and enlighten you on the most divisive time in American history. Just minutes south of Nashville, Franklin is often cited as one of the most beautiful downtowns in the U.S. Our enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides will make your visit to historic Franklin an unforgettable experience. Our tours include the Classic Franklin city tour, Civil War in Franklin, Grave Matters in the Cemetery, and for fans of evening activities, the Haunted Franklin, Ghosts of the Battlefield at the Lotz House and Murder and Mayhem Tours. Bicycle tours and rentals are available from March-November and our Southern Style food tours allow visitors to savor the flavors of Franklin and enjoy history at the same time. Most tours are available daily by advance reservation; some tours have minimums. Just call and see how flexible and accommodating we can be.

As Franklin residents for over 20 years, we didn't know if we would learn anything new. We did, and really enjoyed the tour! If you have a choice, do this tour in the early spring or later in the fall when it's not so hot and humid.

This was something very different than we have ever done and well worth doing. Margie is an excellent story teller. Even for someone who is not usually that interested in history, I truly enjoyed it.

Our very knowledgable tour guide provided a wealth of knowledge we could have never discovered on our own. I made this visit with friends, and cannot wait to return with my husband for a second tour of Franklin.

I've been once with a work group and then again with my family and it only got better! What a great way to check out downtown Franklin, get a bit of history and sample some great food! Highly recommended!

We walked around and were checking out the town. They have signs to let you know what happened in that location. It was interesting.
