Chakita was so engaging and awesome to hear provide this tour!! She was authentic and very knowledgeable. I brought a group of high school students and they all were listening to every word. Would love to do a different tour with her!

I would absolutely recommend this tour, especially to students. Why? Because the tour helps the preservation of history for future generations. I want to give props to United Street Tours. Their team is very enthusiastic and very amusing. They made the experience so much better. This is definitely one for the books!

All of our Nashville tours start at the Nashville Visitor Center, located at 501 Broadway, where we kindly request you to arrive 10-minutes prior to the scheduled tour start time.

Regarding the tour ending location, I would like to inform you that it can vary based on the walking speed and the specific itinerary planned for the day. However, I can provide you with some general information that might help you in planning for after the tour. Here are a few consistent ending locations: 
1) Nashville Public Library (downtown branch) 
2) Public Square 

While our expertise lies primarily in conducting walking tours, we understand your preference for a step-on-guide bus tour.

Rest assured, we are more than capable of accommodating your request and organizing a step-on-guide bus tour that caters to your specific needs. However, we kindly ask you to take note that the rate for this particular tour would align with our private walking tour pricing, starting at $1,600 per tour. The final price will depend on the number of hours for which you require the step-on guide.

To provide you with an accurate quote, we kindly request that you share with us the estimated number of hours you will be needing the guide’s services, as well as the total number of participants in your group. With this information, we will be able to promptly generate a customized quote tailored to your requirements.

As a small team dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, we do not accept incoming phone calls due to our frequent presence on tours. However, we value your inquiries and aim to respond to contact form submissions within 7 business days.

Our guided tours, both for public and private groups, are designed to accommodate a maximum of 40 participants. In the event that your group exceeds this capacity, we would highly recommend dividing it into multiple tours to ensure an optimal experience for all participants.
