“Great tour- worth every penny.”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

My wife and I had a private tour with Bill. The stories and history Bill has with music and Nashville are awesome! He has interviewed and met just about everyone it seems so he has a story to go with it. The 2 hours went by way to fast. Bill- you should charge more! Best deal in Nashville:)

“Do NOT MISS this tour!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Bill is not only friendly and great to do business with...he is incredibly knowledgeable about Music City, its history, its music, its charm character and stories. I am thrilled that we booked this tour. He is so well versed in the genre of country music and also blends in other genres of music and their relationship to the country music we know and love today. Any music lover must make time to spend with Bill. What a delight!

“A must-see in Nashville”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

If you're a fan of country music, you owe it to yourself to take this tour. Bill is extremely knowledgeable about the history of music in Nashville. He blends his information with extensive personal experiences, and weaves a two hour tale that you won't hear anywhere else. All that would be a great reason to take this tour, but when you add a kind, sincere guy that makes you feel like one of his friends in 5 minutes, you just can't miss it. Thanks Bill, you really made our trip special.

“Best time spent in Nashville”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

I encourage anyone visiting Nashville to put this tour as #1 on your "to do" list. Bill is so knowledgable and tells his stories well. You can feel Bill's passion for Nashville and the music created in and around the city. Even if you are not a big Country Music fan, Bill's stories of musicians of all genera are interesting and full of surprise. This is a tour for all. Bill not only makes the tour interesting and fun, he follows up with all after the tour provinding links to more information on Nashville and various musicians. He is appreciative and thankful to all as well. He thinks of everything for a complete tour. I will take the tour again during my next visit to Nashville.

“Best part of our trip!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We were interested in the tour due to such high reviews and did the tour ever meet and exceed the expectation! We look back at our time in Nashville and without a doubt feel this was the best part. Being a country music fan helps as he brings a lot of past and present artists into the story, however it would probably be interesting and worthwhile regardless!
