Departure Point

Belle Meade Plantation, 110 Leake Ave, Nashville, TN 37205-2810
Make your own way to Belle Meade Plantation before your tour is due to start. 

Your guide will meet you at your scheduled time and leads you on a tour through Belle Meade mansion. Go through almost every room in the mansion, which is furnished with period furniture and art, and serves as a prime example of Victorian architecture in Tennessee. 

Expect to hear informative commentary about the estate during the 1800s, when it developed into an important thoroughbred horse farm, and later became the site of Civil War battles and the temporary headquarters for a Confederate general.

After your guided mansion tour, walk through the grounds at your leisure and visit the historic outbuildings, including a dairy and horse farm.

Stop in at the on-site Belle Meade winery for your complimentary wine tasting after your tour. You may also have brunch or lunch at the restaurant (own expense).

Mansion tour

I was on tour ten yes ago. I raved about it to everyone. This time I know Covid is here but for what we paid for a 15 minute tour was horrible. I felt the guide had other things to do because of staff layoffs and did not share details such as the ring scratching the glass. Would not recommend any longer. So sad. I am a wine club member and love this part. So many valuable items totally left out on mansion tour.

Very lovely experience. My boyfriend and I went on the mansion tour and the journey to jubilee tour and we couldn’t of been happier with our time there. Tour guides were very nice and did an amazing job providing information about the plantation. The complimentary wine tasting after each tour was great as well; very friendly environment, I would most definitely recommend checking it out if you’re ever in Nashville!

Beautiful tour but a little crowded and Segway tour too short.

Loved touring the property of Belle Meade. Beautiful layout and gorgeous buildings. We did the Segway tour and tour of the mansion. Felt the Segway tour was extremely short. While the tour guide was wonderful there is so much land to see but we travelled by Segway through only a small area of the property so it was disappointing in that respect. The tour of the mansion was similar in the fact that it was rather short as well. Our tour group was very large for how the layout of the mansion is. Everyone is to stand in a center area to listen to the tour guide speak-when he was done you could explore the various rooms through the doorways only. So it became crowded and impersonal to really get a feel for the place. I felt rushed in the end. The tour guide was not rushing us but him standing there while you were trying to take in the history is uncomfortable. We did get some free wine tasting at the wonderful gift shop at the end of the tour. The wine was very good!! Would buy some more if we were closer to there! 😊

Our tour was at 4 o'clock. After the tour we did not have time to explore the grounds. I think if ya'll are going to close at 5 ya'll should not book a tour at 4 o'clock. I think we didn't get the full experience.
