"Tony brings a rare combination of skills of being extremely knowledgeable about Nashville and the inter workings of the music industry. HE NEEDS NO SCRIPT! He will make you feel comfortable and can answer spontaneous questions about Nashville, the Opry and the music industry in general, both old and new because he has "been there."

"The stories he shared were the personal stories that only an individual who had been involved would know. The stories made the stars come alive and made them appear real and human. Our group asked multiple times if he had considered writing a book with many of the stories he had because they all loved them. The information he shares makes the you feel like you are the only one who gets this type of personal inside scoop about the stars and give you what you want...a special inside view!"

"Tony is extremely knowledgeable about Nashville and welcoming and friendly. His knowledge and stories about the music, film, and tv industry in Nashville are fantastic. Even though it rained, this was an amazing tour and I would highly recommend him. I can't wait until I get home to London to regale my friends and family with my now extensive range of facts. Loved it!"
"I am sure there are tours guides that can provide a basic tour of Nashville, but Tony has a connection to its past, the Opry, the Ryman and numerous artists that his stories bring the venues and city to life. Tony was kind, very informative and gave us extra time! Highly recommended! Great Tour!"
"Tony is a great source of information about Nashville, it's history and the music that makes it a destination! He is willing to direct his tour to your areas of interest. Everyone on our group is still talking about what a remarkable job he did. We had a morning tour, got a days worth of information, and could have listened to him for days. We only wished we had more time to spend with him."
"Tony is the best!!! So friendly and personable! He is an incredible story teller and so knowledgeable about the city. Loved his personal experiences with so many stars! I would recommend Tony's tour to anyone traveling to Nashville, or even if you live there."
"Can't say enough about how everyone loved our time with you as we listened to Nashville stories that only you could share. They were all still talking two hours later over lunch about how great that your tour of Nashville was and how charming you were. Thanks for another great tour!"

"We were in Nashville for a short period of time and I wanted to learn as much about the area as possible in our short time frame. Tony was excellent! He went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our tour. He arrived on time, vehicle was extremely clean and he exceeded our expectations. Tony is knowledgeable about the area and I feel certain we learned more during our tour than friends who have visited the area several times. Highly recommended!"
"We had a great day seeing the sights and listening to stories from Tony who has been there and done that. Not only did he show us the many sights of Nashville, he had stories of the stars and the Nashville scene. Many personal stories of contacts with so many recording artists, I, for one lost track of who and where. We just flat out enjoyed our laid back time with Tony. Should you find yourself in Nashville and want a great introduction to further places to go for further exploration, Tony is the man. We thoroughly enjoyed out "2 hour tour" which in our case took 4 hours to see. So much to see and do."

"My 2.5 hour whirl-wind tour of Nashville was super!!!!! From the moment that I was picked up from the airport to the time I was returned, the tour covered all of the high spots and provided continuous commentary. Tony's experience in the area of law enforcement, security and the Grand Ole Opry proved to be the most helpful and insightful."
C. Nelson Fritts, Jr.
"Tony was a wonderful guide. We loved listening to his stories about the various musicians he had met in his life. I would highly recommend him to everyone. I wish we had done this tour on our first day of our trip to Nashville. The autographed poster was a wonderful gift that we are going to frame and hand on a wall in our home."
