“Informatively fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We appreciated the rest of our trip that much more with the knowledge Bill shared with us, by essentially breathing life in to the local tourist locations with its history.

“An Absolute Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

As a visitor from the UK, I wasn't sure what to expect from a Nashville Walking Tour. I was taken aback by how brilliant this was. Bill DeMain was the most knowledgable and entertaining guide. He delved deep into the history and had so many cool stories and interesting anecdotes at his fingertips that the time flew by. He really brought Nashville and country music to life and had a masterly way of tying the stories together to connect the dots of the town. It's a bargain too!

Don't miss.

“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

i have lived in nashville since 1988 and learned loads about my city on this walk. the tour was fantastic! as a music journalist, bill is incredibly knowledgeable and has the inside scoop on the nashville music scene and it's history. plus - he is just so darn personable and funny. this isn't like any other tour i have ever been on - it's more like taking a walk with an old friend who knows the place inside and out. go! you'll love it.

“Great Intro to the Musical Heritage of Nashville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

This fabulously informational tour covers the rich heritage of the country music scene. Bill interweaves lots of entertaining stories that make the music legends very human. The tour is thoughtfully organized and takes you off the main roads and into the side streets where a lot of events took place. As a musician and music writer, he has an interesting perspective to share about Nashville - a city he clearly loves. He also has a wealth of information about other things to see and do in the city. I highly recommend this tour!!
