Had a great time on the monuments night tour. Great time to see everything.MJ was a great guide with good advice. We got in some crazy traffic by the mall due to a special event for moon landing. He handled the crazy traffic in a very professional manner.

Bought my tickets on line. Saved some money and worked well. The starting location is easy couple block walk from Metro. Nice to get a break from walking. They do not always let you off real close to the site you are visiting. The maps and information they provide are helpful. We really set our visit up using their on line map and stop descriptions. We did the two day pass and the Arlington visit. For Arlington we did the transfer bus in the morning (9:20, 9:40 and 10) from the main starting stop directly to Arlington. In Arlington we were on the first tram. This worked really well. All in all it worked for us wanting to get as much as we could in our two days there.

Old town trolley Nashville, TN Took this HopOn/Hop Off half day tour of downtown Nashville two consecutive days. The tour bus pickup was at the Opryland Hotel & Resort. 1st day we missed 1:00pm return bus ride to hotel. Had to pay extra for hotel shuttle from Whitehorse Saloon to hotel. Original Hopon/hop off tour guide said return shuttle to Opryland Hotel left downtown at 1:00pm. Hopin/Hop off tour c Guide was 10 minutes late so we missed transportation to hotel. 2nd half day tour was to visit Parthenon. Before boarding bus for this attraction, I specially asked tour guide the latest I could leave Parthenon to catch bus back to the hotel. Made it this day. Problem When dropped off at Parthenon drivers/tour guides never directed those going to Parthenon that only entrance was at back of building. Walked all around bldg + up & down stairs to locate entrance. Gray line tours dropped-off customers at the entrance. I had knee replacement 6 months prior to this tour so it was somewhat difficult for me to do all unnecessary walking & climbing May try Grayline next visit to Nashville

Would recommend this tour company. Did the two day pass. One day wouldn’t have been enough time to take advantage of the hop on and off feature and tour/visit areas. Shuttle also takes you into Arlington Cemetery. All the drivers were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with answering questions. Nice job.
