Everything was perfect. My mom wants to go again. She loved it. From begining to end wasvery fun
By Patty O for Bay Path- Christmas NY Style w/ Radio City Rockettes on 16 Dec, 2021
This was a fast paced tour of Nashville with lots to see and do over the four days/three nights and allot of walking! Best of Times ensured our time in Nashville was maximized with behind the scenes tour of the Ryman and Opry as well as performances at both in addition to the dinner show with the Oak Ridge Boys. The 'step on' guide, Ed for a tour of Nashville was fantastic as was our bus driver, Michael! We had a delicious dinner buffet at the White Horse Saloon which had a TV show back in the 70's-80's and watched country line dancing as well as listened to live country music. We also had a luncheon on Steamboat Jackson which is a paddle wheel boat and the entertainment was top notch. We toured Studio B and the Country Music Hall of Fame. I probably left something out but those are the highlights. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to experience Nashville as the itinerary was top notch as was the hotel and the meals delicious. Well worth the money.

This show was fantastic. All of the music was great and it brought us back to the time music was fabulous. The performers had great voices and they kept the audience singing along for the entire show. Hope to see them again.
