We took this tour on a cold Saturday morning. Our guide Margie, was knowledgeable and informative while being personable. The tour was 2 hours in length and a nice way to get to know the town

Enjoyed walking around and shopping in the town, which is close to Nashville, but with a true small town feel.

We visited and spent the day in Franklin. Great little town with shops and restaurants. Was recommended to us and definitely worth the visit. Had lunch at Meriden breadbasket super popular spot with good homemade food and then we went to visit a plantation house.

This is a great change of pace from Nashville, but close enough to the city to get you some fun. Excellence shops all along the main steeet. Friendly faces. Diverse options. Well worth the 20 minute side south from Nashville!
