Better then we expected.

This was above and beyond of what we expected. Two hours of music, laughter and fun. The price was right. We would all go back once a month if we could.

This was the most fantastic trip I've ever taken to Nashville, this trip had just one objective, to see The Coal Miners Daughter Miss Loretta Lynn and her sister Crystal Gail, who was inducted into The Grand Ole Opry family, the Ryman is the mother church of country music. The sound quality was outstanding, we had great seats in the... More

I went to see a show and did not do the tour, but to come to the Mother church of country music was a bucket-list thrill. The Grand Ole Opry was playing that night (that only happens in the winter months), but a thrill to see Loretta Lynn. Nice venue and you sit in actual pews on the first floor... More

The history behind this theater is amazing. Pay for the "behind the scenes" admit - it's worth the price seeing the places where all the stars stayed before their performance. You can do a self guided walk before your behind the scenes tour. Thought it was only a country venue - nope! They have all kinds of music perform here... More

The Grand Ole Opry show was well produced and had new and established entertainers participate in the show. The music in the genre from "yesterday" and "today" was a balanced presentation of music that can be enjoyed by all. However, the seating may be "authentic" but it is the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced at ANY venue in the... More

Ryman Auditorium is located in the middle of the city right by Broadway. It's easy accessible and not one to miss. Even the outside of the building is beautiful. Get inside to witness one of the most historic musical arenas there is. It's old, it's beautiful and so full of musical history.

Great small place with a great show. Would do it again and again! Not a bad seat in the house. Really enjoyed the amount of various talent you get at the Grande Ole Opry

I have, gratefully, been here a number of times. I am a fan of the venue..I look for any good (schedule friendly) reason to go back. It is easily walked to in the heart of Nashville. Up close and personal feel with generally comfortable seating and plenty of varied refreshment for all ages and tastes. Not every seat is great..some... More

We enjoyed this tour though it was quick. Would encourage everyone to do this. Beautiful building and great history! We did not do the backstage tour, but I am sure this is good.
