"My husband and I often take a tour when we are traveling to a new city. Although we have been to Nashville, it was 20 years ago, so we decided to take another tour. Tony is a wonderful person with non-stop information about the city, and interesting stories of how the city has changed over the years. My husband and I agree this was the best tour we have been on. Thank you, Tony"
