I love history so this plantation was full of information. The tour guide dressed the part of a southern plantation gentlemen. He was full of information about belle Meade and all the descendent who have occupied the plantation through the years. The winery was fun also. We had a wine tasting then went out to the patio area to listen to music. We sat under the large magnolia tress listening to music and drinking wine. Enjoyable day!

My group and I were visiting Nashville for a conference, and we were able to get away one afternoon. I called ahead of time to see what options were available with short notice. The customer service over the phone was excellent and when we arrived the person I spoke to even checked on us to see if we had made it on time. Our tour guide was AMAZING! He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed his humor. Our wine tasting experience was also nice. We toured the rest of the grounds sipping on wine. It was very beautiful and relaxing.

Had a great time. We did the Segway tour and private wine tasting and both were well worth the money
