Civil War and Plantation Tour from Nashville
From US$ 69.00
Overview
Civil War buffs can research the significance of the Lotz House, the Carter House, and the Carnton Plantation, but knowing the unique history behind each place is easier if you have a guide showing you the way. This Civil War tour includes round-trip transport from Nashville, all entrance fees, and guided commentary for a stress-free trip from the state capital.
What to Expect
This Civil War and plantation tour begins with a pickup from your Nashville hotel. Board a climate-controlled vehicle, and get ready for the ride over to Franklin. The drive is a little less than 30 minutes without traffic, and this convenient tour saves you the trouble of having to rent a car.

Your first stops in Franklin are at the Lotz House and Carter House. Hear stories behind both popular attractions, and listen as your guide tells you about the Battle of Franklin.

Continue on, and enjoy some free time in Franklin before heading toward Carnton Plantation. The plantation served as a Confederate field hospital after the battle, and you can see one of the largest Confederate cemeteries there.

Your Civil War tour ends with a drop-off back at your Nashville hotel.

Amazing step back into history!

An absolute must when you visit Nashville! All the tour guides were great and Rusty at the Plantation was one of the best guides I’ve ever had. The closing comment he offered left me with goosebumps!
