Nashville Experiences

Nashville is the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee and home to legendary country music venues including the Grand Ole Opry House, home of the famous “Grand Ole Opry” stage and radio show. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and historic Ryman Auditorium are Downtown, as is the District, featuring honky-tonks with live music and the Johnny Cash Museum, celebrating the singer's life.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your USA holiday with us and are visiting Nashville..

The “Home of Country Music”, Nashville hosts the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and the Blue Bird Café. The capital of Tennessee is also famous for The District, a downtown area featuring shopping, dining and entertainment. To view these and other popular attractions like the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Parthenon and Bicentennial Capitol Mall, hop aboard the Old Town Trolley.

The very mention of Nashville often conjures up the image of a stage full of ornate boot and cowboy hat clad, banjo picking entertainers performing in front of star-struck concert-goers keeping time to the rhythm and dreaming of one day gracing that stage themselves.

While that’s a fairly common scenario, we’re going to show you that Nashville is so much more than that. Long before Nashville got its name, it was a promised land for pioneers and idealists of varying genre – A place for talented, hard-working, passionate folks to stake their fortunes not only in music and the arts, but medicine, high tech, academia and even candy!

From the hunter-gatherers making their home along the Cumberland and the lone French fur trader establishing a trading post, to the initial hearty settlers of Fort Nashborough and the first musician to step off a bus onto Broadway with nothing but a guitar and dream—Nashville has been the hook on which the brave and entrepreneurial have hung their hopes and aspirations.

Their success inspires others to hone their chops and journey to Music City in search of their own big hit. As we weave our way through this rich and vibrant city learning about, and paying tribute to its legends and pioneers, you won’t help but feel inspired, too!

This was the home of the 7th President of the United States of America, who was also a general and hero of the War of 1812. You can visit not only his home but also many of additional buildings and beautiful grounds of this important American figure while learning the important role he played in American government, for example in developing the Democratic Party.
 

Your guided visit of the house will give you a better understanding of this important American President. The grounds of The Hermitage are vast and beautiful, so make sure you allow yourself plenty of time after your home tour to explore at your own pace. An audio-guide will be supplied to you to better assist you.

On your cruise on the Cumberland River, you will enjoy a delicious meal of local Southern cuisine while listening to the music that put Nashville on the map – Country!
Don’t forget to take numerous snapshots of the incredible Nashville skyline while on your leisure cruise. Where else can you enjoy authentic cuisine while listening to many
of your favorite classic Country music in addition to seeing spectacular views of Nashville!

While “rollin’ down the river,” you’ll enjoy stunning views, a delicious meal freshly prepared by the chefs and toe-tapping entertainment in our two-story Victorian Theater.

One of the largest showboats ever built, the grand General Jackson is an elegant triumph of American ingenuity. With its elegant lacy filigree and stately design, the boat is reminiscent of the opulence of the American Victorian era.

Showboats have long been a colourful part of our nation’s history, and this most unique Nashville attraction epitomises the grace and grandeur of the South.

The General Jackson Showboat is named after the first steamboat to operate on the Cumberland River in 1817.

Built by the largest inland shipbuilder in the United States, Jeffboat, located in Indiana, the General Jackson was launched on the Ohio River in Indiana to start the journey to its new home on Nashville’s Cumberland River on April 20, 1985.
