Tour description provided by Viator

Southern plantations, Presidential estates, Nashville and Civil War history will all be a part of your day! Experience Nashville's rich history on a guided tour of Belle Meade Plantation and Andrew Jackson's manor-The Hermitage.

Known as the Queen of the Tennessee Plantations, Belle Meade Plantation was the centerpiece of a 5,200-acre plantation, world-renowned as a thoroughbred stud farm and nursery in the 19th century. The present 30-acre site features 10 outbuildings which include an 1832 slave cabin and a colossal carriage house and stables.

Your next visit will be the stately manor of Andrew Jackson - The Hermitage. This was the home of the seventh US president, and a favorite son of Tennessee. You will view the formal gardens, visit the slave quarters, the original 1804 cabin of the estate and the sight where this president and his wife were laid to rest.
