We were only in Nashville for 2 days. We went on this tour the first morning we visited. There was only 8 people on our tour, which was just the right amount of people to walk and tour the downtown area of Nashville. Really enjoyed Bill, who seemed to know the city very well, and was quite informative about the musical history of this famous town, Nashville. Recommend this tour highly.

Bill is a born storyteller! We immensely enjoyed the tour and insight into the heart and history of the city. His love of music...both as a musician and a fan...was apparent throughout and his enthusiasm was infectious! I loved how he really dug deep to get some golden nuggets about each stop.

I would highly recommend this tour...fast and fun...what more could you want?

Bill's walking tour I would recommend to every person who wants to know the music history of Nashville. Bill's knowledge and relating stories on each area is fascinating. He was updating us with recent found information that kept us 'glued' to what was said. The walking is very easy and there are times to stand or sit and relax. This is a 'must' even if you don't know the history of country music like me.

This was a lot of fun and highly recommended. Bill does a great job really bringing out the heart of the city as he takes you from place to place and shares the stories behind it all. He is very knowledgeable and makes it all very interesting. I wouldn't even really consider myself a country music fan, but if you are a fan of music in general, a fan of history, or just love a good story, this is definitely something you should check out.
