When I was a youngster and learned about our 7th president and how the Trail of Tears came about, I developed a grudge against Andrew Jackson. I'm not American Indian, but I thought he must've been a horrible person. Well, this tour gives a lot of intriguing history and tells a tale of someone (who, imo, was a little wrong... More

My husband and I enjoyed the audio tour - this way you can go at your own pace and choose to learn as much as you want. The tour inside the home is guided by several people. You have a different guide for each area of the home. We would have liked one guide to take us through the entire... More

Love the home and history , a must see. Don't go with people that don't like history or don't like to walk except at malls and stores.

I learned a lot about Andrew Jackson and realized. The wagon ride was fun and informative. Everyone was friendly, helpful, answered our questions. The tour of Andrew Jackson's house was impressive. Actually saw the room he died in.

I thought this tour was great! I learned a lot about Nashville, President Jackson, Tennessee, and his family. The tour states that this house is 93% accurate with original furnishings, pictures on the wall, etc. of all the other presidential home tours. You can't take photos inside. The grounds are beautiful. The tour guides were impressive. Very educational for children.

What a great time was had by everyone in our group. We had 10 of us with teenagers. We all found the tour informative and enjoyable. It was a very hot day, but there was plenty of shade to keep you cool. The wagon tours were all booked, which we think would have been great. Well worth the money and... More

The grounds of the Hermitage are beautiful and so is the house. Everyone needs to see this place for historical value. The house tour guides were very lackluster and didn't appear to care. We took the wagon tour out back, and our guide was very friendly and informative.
