Our group attended a show and did a backstage tour. The show was great! Saw several artists and even a comedian. Had a great time and would absolutely go back. Love the rich history of the place and so glad they restored it.

Saw a show! Never realized the shoes were a couple hours long and so detailed. I would recommend a show to anyone planning a trip to Nashville. And don’t miss the tour! So interesting.

Seats were second row center. Well worth the price. Parked 1 block away due to frigid weather - 6 hours for $35. Parking is less expensive farther away.

Had a great self guided tour of this historic place, so glad we came. I am not a country music fan, but realy appreciated learning about its history, and really felt the welcoming nature of the Grand Ole Opry. Would recommend!

Yes, there are guided tours available, but hearing a concert is the best way to get a "feel" for the Ryman, in my opinion, and if you choose to get a tour, then I recommend morning visits or other day of the week visits... More

It’s not that high. I’m thinking maybe about 6 feet high. There are 6 steps from floor level (same as front row) to the stage level.

There are no tours on Christmas or New Year's Day, but the Ryman is open most other days of the year.
