Bill is a wonderful story teller and keeps you entertained recounting the history of Country Music and some of it's most famous artists. We're not big Country Music fans but loved learning about the events and people that put Nashville on the map. Loved his personal stories based upon the interviews he has had with many of the artists. Tour is very reasonably priced and is definitely worth every penny. Highly recommend!!

Our family has been lucky enough to do walking tours in mutiple cities in multiple countries around the world, and Bill is as good a tour guide as we have ever experienced. His knowledge of the history of country music and all its famous characters who have played Music City was amazing and extremely informative. We were lucky enough to get in on a tour on a Monday (he usually only does weekends in the WInter) and although it was a chilly December day, Bill kept our three teenagers all engaged with his stories and insights...not an easy task. Bill is a self-proclaimed "music nerd" and he is genuinely thrilled to share the depth of his knowledge with his tour. This is a must for any fan of country music. You will not be dissapointed.

More impressive than his knowledge of Nashville and country music is the relationships Bill quickly develops with those on the tour. A great overview of the city. You leave the tour equipped with enough knowledge to be dangerous for a weekend full of fun. LOL. Highly recommended. He even provided you with a follow up email to go back and check out info and YouTube videos. Thanks Bill.

Bill is incredibly knowledgeable about the town, the people, the music and the legends. We were in town for a Rangers hockey game the weekend before thanksgiving...during the incredible cold snap, yet he was so interesting no one minded much. We visited the big and little, the known and unknown. It was a great mix and we highly recommend the tour!

We were in Nashville for Thanksgiving weekend and went downtown to check thing out. It was a cool downtown but we kind of just walked around. The next day we booked and went on this tour. It added a whole new dimension to being downtown. The knowledge that Bill has is like a book. He is enthusiastic about the tour and the information he can provide. The walk is easy and the tour was fun.

He knows so much about the music industry and will answer the questions you have about music trivia. What is so cool too is that he has had the chance to interview so many musicians and so he can incorporate that information into the tour.

So, yes....go ahead an book it. It will be worth it.
