“Fantastic tour and amazing guide”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

This tour was very informative and entertaining. We learned a lot and saw all the key sights. Bill takes you into a unique bar where all the greats have been and into the best local shops. He also went above and beyond when he sent us a text hours after the tour with recommendations for a show since he knew we really wanted to see some songwriters preform. Highly recommend going on this tour!

“Excellent tour with great history and information”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

My wife and I did the Walkin' Nashville recently while on vacation in Nashville. We both really enjoyed it. Bill the tour guide is very knowledgable about Nashville and its impact on music. He provides specific stories and facts throughout the tour. We started with Chet Atkins, went through Arcade shopping area, Printers Alley, Ryman, Tootsie's, Ernest Tubb record shop and ended at Hatch Show Print. I really liked the story about the owner of the Rainbow Room in Printers Alley. We actually got to go into the building while it is being remodeled. Tootsie's was also a highlight - seeing all of the history on the walls. It makes you really appreciate all that has been in Nashville with country music and music in general. I highly recommend this tour.
