Your tour passes by many important areas, including Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Printers Alley, Ryman Auditorium, and the Downtown Presbyterian Church. As you walk, listen to your guide tell stories about record producers, honky-tonk outlaws, gamblers, thieves, and civil rights heroes that made Nashville the way it is today. See a pre-Prohibition saloon, as well as the place where Andrew Jackson fought a historic duel. Your Nashville city tour ends where it began. Before you part with your guide, ask for recommendations for the rest of your visit.

The tour with Ryan was very informative as to history and local culture. The route showed us parts of downtown that we would not have found on our own. Highly recommend this tour.

Hi - We walked from our AirB&B so I do not have a definitive answer. However, the walking tour met by the Visitor Center at the Arena. I would call the visitor center and ask them. Good luck.
