The Ryman is definitely a tour you need to see while in Nashville! So full of country music history, it gives you goosebumps just being in the building. My only regret was not getting tickets to a show at the Ryman while I was visiting Nashville but it is definitely on my bucket list for my next visit to this... More

Great concert but the seats are on a long wooden bench with no separation between the people. My husband and I sat between several very large people and basically they took up a lot of our seat space (which was extremely narrow to begin with ) leaving us very little room to sit in. We were very uncomfortable. And I... More

Ryman Auditorium has everything: history, fame and glory, dark years, great architecture in the center of the city and awesome music! The tour was truly educational and will make one fall in love with our country singers and their dedication and commitment to their music.

Such a great way to end our 4d/3n trip in Nashville! We had a funny, witty & knowledgeable guide in Nathan. The entire backstage tour gave us a full appreciation of the history and legacy of the Ryman Auditorium. The guided tour culminated with the Soul of Nashville theater experience which was calming and inspiring!

There is no better way to spend a night in Nashville other than going to the Ryman. It is quintessential Nashville!! Have a fun dinner downtown and walk over to the Ryman for a truly great night out. There are not bad seats and no bad shows! Always fun!

This was our second visit to Nashville and our 1st to the Ryman. It was interesting to learn the story behind this historic building. There are several movies to watch and a few boards to read. There are also outfits that people have worn through the years. It was 20.00/ person I think that is kind of expensive for the... More
