Historic Tennessee - Southern Plantations and Presidents
From US$ 69.00

See two southern plantations from Nashville—the Hermitage, home of former president Andrew Jackson, and Belle Meade Mansion—without having to rent a car. On this tour, journey back in time with your guide and visit both historic locations in one day, with time for a traditional Southern lunch (own expense). The day ends with a relaxing wine tasting.

What to Expect

Your tour begins with pickup from your downtown Nashville hotel. Drive 30 minutes to the Hermitage, a plantation that was once home to former president Andrew Jackson. Visit the museum, explore the mansion, and wander through the grounds. See old farm buildings, slave sites, a tulip grove, church, and more.

Stop for a Southern buffet lunch on the Hermitage grounds (own expense) before heading to the Belle Meade Plantation, also known as the Queen of Tennessee Plantations. Once a thoroughbred horse farm and nursery in the 19th century, the mansion has an original stable, carriage house, dairy, slave cabins, and more to tour. When finished, stop for a wine tasting at the Belle Meade Plantation.

The tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

This tour is enjoyable IF you are into Andrew Jackson and learning about Belle Meade. This was my husband's tour pick so I went along for the ride. They dress in period costumes at each location and have interesting stories along the way. There is...More

It's a ways out of town so you will need to get a Lyft. didn't find any tours going out there. Lovely place with mediocre tour of the house by guides who seemed tired and bored. Grounds are very beautiful and the movie and exhibit...More

Hi, the tour is about 8 hrs, so if your hotel is close to Nashville or in Nashville, probably 5-5:30 PM back at your hotel.
