“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The tour was fantastic, even in the rain :-)

Bill DeMain is an excellent guide, full of captivating stories about the hidden corners of Nashville. He's heard many of these stories first-hand from the stars of Nashville himself, having interviewed some of the greats over the years. Bill is also an excellent songwriter himself - be sure to check out his music.

“Walkin back in Music City History!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Plan your first mid-morning in Nashville with this tour. It's a leisurely walk around downtown Nashville and great introduction to the city. You'll almost hear Chet Atlkins playing his quitar. Bill shares wonderful lively stories of the famed Music City and those great country-music legends!

“Don't Miss This Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is a terrific two hours, an easy walk through downtown Music City. Bill DeMain knows the history, he knows the performers, he knows the venues and places you just won't see otherwise. He tells a great story. You will come away knowing so much more about the past 60 years of Nashville music. And then, when it is all over, he follows up with email and links with much, much more. A great morning. Suitable for all ages, but particularly great for music fans.

“Loved this tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I highly recommend this tour to everyone that would like to hear some "inside stories" about the Nashville music scene and history. Bill is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Nashville music and tells the stories in such an entertaining way! a great bargain for the price we paid for the 2 hour tour.

“We Recommend the Walking Tour to Anyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Nashville with Bill DeMain. He took us to places throughout the town which served as natural stages for imparting the History of Nashville, Country Music, the recording industry, and the people who made (and are making) them great. Furthermore, he spiced what told us with current news and trends. Bill's knowledge of and enthusiasm for all these subjects was mesmerizing. The walking tour certainly contributed to the success of our visit to Nashville. We would recommend it to anyone.
