The driver was very knowledgable. I really loved how he told you back end story's as we drove. The town of Franklin was beautiful. Needed more time to shop.

The bus driver was very informative. The guides at each of the 3 houses we visited were knowledgeable and did a great job. We especially enjoyed Carnton and the Confederate cemetery there. While both my wife and I know a lot of Civil War history, we had never heard about the battle of Franklin and didn’t know it’s significance. The first photo in this review shows the actual bullet holes in one of the outbuildings at Carter House (2nd house on the tour). The second are the gardens at Carnton.

The stories bring it to life. And the intense flood of emotion as you enter the cemetery was overwhelming.

Wonderful tour! The tour leaders at each stop were extremely knowledgeable about each location. Our bus driver was also very good- he shared a lot of historical information and I learned a lot about the area history from him. He even pointed out areas where stars lived, performed and performed. great tour!

Definitely worth taking the tour at Carter House. Very informative and I learned so much. The house was amazing to see inside how people lived so long ago. Tour guide was enthusiastic and had a lot of knowledge to share. Really enjoy this tour. It was about an hour–worth your time!

The bus driver was knowledgeable and informative. The guides at the plantation houses were great and made the story come alive. It is the only way to truly understand what happened at the battle and the aftermath.
