My husband and I like to do things like pub crawls and food tastings when we go to different cities. The locals always know the best places and give great insight. So we are used to participating in these types of excursions. This was our favorite though!!! Our tour started with Darren, the owner, who has to be one of the funniest and knowledgeable guides we have ever had! We actually were fortunate enough to get to participate in part of Darren's history tour because we accidentally turned up at the right time at the right place. That is how we know how knowledgeable and funny he is. Then Tayler did the majority of our pub crawl tour and he is also very funny, knowledgeable, and was accommodating, if we wanted to stay a little longer at a place and have an additional drink. ALL of the places and drinks that were selected for us were excellent choices! I would highly recommend this pub crawl, as well as Darren's history tour to everyone coming to Nashville! You will be glad you did!!

Taylor was our guide and did an amazing job giving us history of Nashville during our pub crawl! It was a very fun experience and I would recommend it for anyone visiting Nashville!

Knowledgeable, super friendly, and patient with teaching everyone how to ride the Segway. Definitely the best way to explore the city. 5 stars aren’t enough!

We loved the game and escaped with 22 minutes to go. We were in a room with 6 others and they were great! Alejandra was awesome!

Informative and fun, Easier than I expected. Do it!
