    Great tour, especially for horse lovers. Guide seemed very knowledgeable and was very adorable in her period dress. Her enthusiasm for the history was contagious. Tour mainly focuses on the history of the family itself, so those looking for lots of war history may be a little disappointed. I prefer the personal history as opposed to random facts, because I feel it brings the history alive. We opted out of the wine tasting but still feel the admission was well worth it.

    We visited Belle Meade last week and found it to be a delightful step back in time. The tour was most enjoyable and we found Sarah to be a very well informed and interesting guide. I am sure we will return when we are in Nashville. Lastly, the restaurant was superb!

    We spent an afternoon visiting the plantation at Belle Meade. Learned some interesting facts about the life and culture of Nashville in the 1800s and fascinating nuggets regarding horse racing and its origins in the South. The young woman that gave the tour was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a fantastic way to spend a few hours and well worth the admission fee.

    The grounds are beautiful, and the tour was well done, with some costumed presenters better than others. We would have preferred more talk about how the slaves at the plantation were treated. That part was a little Disneyfied and this could be a very good opportunity to look at this tragic part of our American history, not to mention how the Confederates of the time behaved.

    Grounds are beautiful. FREE (included in tour price) wine tasting was a great addition to the tour. Restaurant is a bit pricey if your looking to pinch pennies but it is oh so worth paying for.
