We had a great surprise joining this interesting tour that showed us hidden places in nashville with great anecdotes about country music that even for us "not well informed" italians were really interesting. Bill is really easy to understand and absolutely knowledgeable. We definitly recommend this tour

This was our first visit to Nashville and Bill was a fantastic guide with stories and knowledge that far exceeded our expectations. This is a "must do" for anyone visiting Nashville.

Awesome tour! Bill is a walking encyclopedia of all things about the music and musicians that have made the Music City what it is today. Great stories that you won't read in any guide book.

I was really impressed with this tour. Bill is a wealth of knowledge. I liked it so much that I would do it again! I learned so much about Nashville and although I only had two days in the city I felt like I left knowing it well thanks to Bill. Well worth the money.

My girlfriend and I took this walking tour while visiting Nashville in August 2014. Bill is a self-described music nerd with a great understanding of Music City and a lot of passion for music in general. I love walking tours for getting a bit of exercise and learning about local history, which this tour had in abundance. The overall distance... More

We really enjoyed listening to and walking around Nashville with our guide. He is so informative and entertaining. He took us to places we never would have know about and told many stories along the way. Don't miss this walking tour.

Just took the tour with Bill today - our first day in Nashville of a week-long trip - to give us some background and history so that we could get the most out of our time here. Our family raved about how thorough, fun, professional, insightful, historical, anecdotal, laid-back and just plain great the tour is. We didn't want it... More

Tour was the perfect length, about two hours. The tour guide was super dorky and super nice. He made sure to talk to everyone and include everyone. He really knew his stuff.

Bill's passion for The Nashville Sound made our first time visit of the tour's premier musical spots, fact-based stories of our beloved country singers, musicians, and writers a memorable masterpiece. Because of Bill's recommendation of the present-day music scene on Broadway's clubs our trip was enjoyed by all of us in our country line dancing group from The Dallas Bull... More
