from Nashville Trolley Hop On Hop off Sightseeing Tour
Enjoy our 12 mile, fully narrated tour of Nashville. Think of Nashville, and it's hard not to imagine a stage full of sparkling legends. There's Dolly and Porter, Willie and Waylon and Johnny and June strumming and crooning as the crowd gets rhythm. But Nashville is truly much more than that. Nashville is cave-dwelling fur traders, pioneering physicians and, even, saber-toothed tigers. Yes, saber-toothed tigers!

From the first hunter-gather tracking game along the Cumberland to the last musician to step off a bus with nothing but a guitar and a dream, Nashville has been a draw for those with an extraordinary talent - and courage. And they've all had a hand in making this city the rich and vibrant place you've come to experience. Let's go see Nashville!!!

Was in town for a weekend. My wife and I took another companies tour the last time we were here and it was horrible. Old town is the company you want to use. Very nice tour even with the closures from Covid. Scooter (I don’t remember his real name) was awesome. I HIGHLY recommend you give them a try.

Our party of 6 enjoyed seeing & hearing about the sights of Nashville without the driving hassle. Our first bus driver was hard to understand so we got off at one of the early stops and caught the next trolley.

"Great Value and a good way to get an overview of Nashville"

Cowboy is the man! I had so much fun joking with him and he had the whole bus laughing. The tour is very good and so convenient to be able to hop on and off. We really enjoyed the tour and the stops. Great to not have to worry about a car or pay for Uber every time you want to move to the next sight. I highly recommend it and look for Cowboy's bus, he is funnest of them all! Thanks Cowboy! Tip: Buy your ticket on-line, get the discount, then activate at the bus stop while you are waiting. One the active screen comes up, take a screen shot and you can use that as your ticket all day. One final tip (just for fun) if Cowboy starts singing, you can tip him to stop!

What are the hours of operation for the tours?
The first tour begins at 9:00 am daily at 201 Broadway (stop #1 ). The last tour of the day varies depending on the depot that you are starting from, the time of year, the day of the week, and any citywide events in town. Please refer directly to Old Town’s tour schedule.

How much knowledge do your conductors have about Nashville? 
You will be amazed at how knowledgeable our conductors are and what great storytellers and entertainers they are, too! All of our tour conductors go through a rigorous six-week training program to ensure that their tour is safe, their information is accurate, and their customer service is outstanding.

Are there parking lots near any of your stops? 
Parking in Nashville is sometimes a challenge and can be on the expensive side; but there are a large number of parking options around the city, including parking garages, parking lots, and city-metered spaces.

Are your tours narrated?
Yes, the Old Town Trolley is fully narrated by knowledgeable, expert guides. However, an Old Town Trolley Tour is more than just a narration, it’s an experience! You’ll hear sound effects and much more.

Can I get on and off wherever I want?
Yes! This is one of the most unique and enjoyable aspects of an Old Town Trolley Tour. You can hop off and hop back on at 15 different stops around the city, sightseeing at your own pace.

Where does the trolley stop?
Stops include: Lower Broadway, Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Musem & Goo Goo Shop, Ryman Auditorium, Legislative Plaza, Musicians Hall of Fame, Farmers’ Market, Marathon Motorworks & Antique Archaeology, The Parthenon/Centennial Park, Vanderbilt University, Hot Chicken, Belmont Mansion, Bobby’s Idle Hour/Music Row, The Gulch and The Frist Center.

Are food and drinks allowed while on the tour?
Food and drinks are welcome. However, alcoholic beverages are not allowed under any circumstance for the safety and comfort of all of our guests.

Can your trolley’s accommodate an electric scooter? 
We always allow electric scooters where the combined weight of guest and scooter/wheelchair is less than 600 pounds.

Do I have to start at stop #1?
You may start your Old Town Trolley Tour at any of our 15 convenient stops.

Are baby carriages allowed on your trolleys?
Yes, children are always welcome on Old Town Trolleys. We do ask that carriages be collapsed; the tour conductor will store the collapsed carriage in a safe place on the trolley until you’re ready to step down at a departure point.

Are dogs allowed on your trolleys?
Assistance animals, such as seeing-eye dogs, are the only animals that are allowed on board the trolleys.

Are the trolleys handicap accessible?
A certain number of our trolleys are equipped with hydraulic wheelchair lifts. We do ask that you call ahead to arrange use of these vehicles.

Are your trolleys enclosed?
The trolleys are open-air vehicles but have plastic “isinglass” windows that can roll up or roll down depending on the weather conditions.

Do you run tours in inclement weather?
Yes, we operate our tours rain or shine, hot or cold, year-round. However, bear in mind that some winter conditions can prohibit safe operation. Occasionally, we are forced to close operations for safety.

Are the trolleys heated?
Yes. During the wintertime, we use heated trolleys that are glass-enclosed specifically for the colder weather.

Are the trolleys air-conditioned?
The trolleys are open-air vehicles which allow for optimal sightseeing and picture-taking.

How many times can I go through the loop?
You may ride the Old Town Trolley Tour around as many times as you wish. However, we recommend that you get off and on as you go and take advantage of the sights. Many of the attractions will get increasingly busy as the day wears on; so it’s often best to take advantage of the stops as you go. In addition, you will hear essentially the same information presented each time you go around on the tour, although presented by each driver with his or her own style and flair.

How often does the trolley pass each stop?
Old Town Trolley Tours of Nashville operates the city’s largest fleet of sightseeing vehicles and this allows us to pick up and drop off more frequently than any other trolley company. The frequency of the trolleys depends on the time of the year, and traffic and weather conditions. In addition, the trolleys tend to run more frequently on weekends than on the weekdays.

If I get off and go to a museum or attraction, do you wait outside?
The trolleys go around the city in a continuous loop, allowing guests to hop off and hop on at the designated stops. When you hop off a trolley to see the sights at a particular stop, that trolley will continue with the tour, and another trolley will arrive shortly to make another pick-up.

Can I bring my luggage on board?
Space on the trolleys is limited, but in some cases, it may be acceptable to bring a small suitcase on board. Bear in mind that our trolleys are designed specifically for sightseeing and therefore contain limited storage space (as compared to motor coaches.)

Can I bring my stroller on board the trolley?
Yes, we can accommodate strollers but they must be collapsible and will be stored up front with the conductor. Strollers in the aisle ways would constitute a safety hazard.
