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.

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.
