I have to confess, I didn't know much about Andrew Jackson b/f stopping at The Hermitage and taking this tour. I especially enjoyed the film presentation at the start of the tour, as it gave a good background on his life and political career. It...More

I highly recommend this place. Very educational but in a fun way. The guides were very knowledgeable. We could easily have spent half the day here.

This is a must see right outside of the city! The staff is respectful and informative! The cost is worth the historical significance and knowledge of Andrew Jackson. The duel presentation is very informative! The mansion is worth the wait in line! There is plenty...More

Fascinating! My friend wanted to visit Hermitage- my knowledge of Andrew Jackson was limited to what I learned in my High School history class many decades ago- not much! The Welcome Center was highly informative with a short film. There were dioramas of the historical...More

Unfortunately we were on the tour that combined this site with the Belle Meade Plantation. We could have spent all day here. The docents were very interesting including the mock duel! If I return, I will plan to stay all day.

In addition to a great tour of the mansion, I found the informational displays to be very well done. In particular the election results - electoral vs popular and the different voting groups allowed in the different elections. It highlighted election issues which have persisted...More

There are wheelchairs available on-site if you should need one of those. Otherwise, the only stairs that would be used are those in the mansion to the second floor. As many have said, the longest walk is the path from the... More

We only took the general admission, but the audio machine you can use for a self guided tour was sufficient in my opinion.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
