“Great way to experience Nashville”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I would highly recommend Bill's tour - my family and I took it on our recent visit to Nashville and loved it. It is a great way to see the city, learn about its music history and discover places to listen to music. Bill is a musician himself, as well as a music journalist who has first-hand experience interviewing some of the music world's most famous names. In addition to having a wealth of knowledge, he's also fun and personable. He also provided great food recommendations!

“Tour was great”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

I am not typically a tour person but I highly recommend this tour. Bill was great and knows so much about Nashville and country music history. I can't wait to return and bring my husband along.

“Bill De Main rocks the Music City legends tour.”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Bill De Main is one of the most knowledgeable and articulate tour guides I have ever encountered. As a journalist and musician himself who has lived and worked in Nashville for more than 20 years, he has great enthusiasm for the legends of country music, and it shows in his tour. He has a lot of personal stories and anecdotes that he weaves into his presentation that makes it very interesting whether you're a country music fan or not. He also gave us some great recommendations on restaurants as well as up and coming musicians/bands and where they were playing.

I would definitely recommend his tour to anyone visiting Nashville.

“I would do this again!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

I am so happy I decided to do this tour. Bill knows his stuff and indeed is a music nerd and I love music nerds! You get to know things that make you feel like you were there back then when all this history was being made. I love that Bill follows through with you with songs that were talked about on the tour! I recommend this anyone visiting Nashville for the first time or the 10th! I would so this tour again in a heartbeat. Just so much fun!
