About Tennessee Tours

The state motto in Tennessee is “Agriculture and Commerce” with the slogan of “Tennessee – America at its Best.”

The name Tennessee originated from the old Yuchi Indian word, “Tana-see,” which means “The Meeting Place.” 

Hattie Caraway from Bakerville is the first woman senator in the United States. 

The largest earthquake in American history occurred in the winter of 1811-12 in northwestern Tennessee. 

Reelfoot Lake, which is reputed as the “Turtle Capital of the World” also features thousands of sliders, stinkpots, mud, and map turtles. 

Tennessee has more than 3,800 documented caves. 

Why go on a Tennessee tour?

Tennessee has three Grand Divisions: East, Middle, and West, each with a rich heritage. East Tennessee tells the story behind the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, bluegrass, and Appalachian. Middle Tennessee is home to Music City, the Cumberland River and antebellum homes.  While West Tennessee is famous for their barbeque, rock ‘n roll and blues music. With so much to choose from, you will certainly not run out of things to see or do on your Tennessee tour!

Depending on the tour option you select, you may be able to start your adventure in the magical Music City of Nashville. While you’re here, make sure to drop by Music Row, the historic downtown, State Capitol, Parthenon, Fort Nashborough, and Ryman Theatre. If you’re a country music fan, we encourage you to reserve seats for an unforgettable show at the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. This intimate showcase gives fans a rare opportunity to hear hit songs in their original form, and from the perspective of the writers that created them! On the other hand, if you find yourself in the exciting city of Memphis, be prepared for one historic ride! You will come across hidden Elvis sites (his Lauderdale Courts apartment, Humes High School, the Overton Park Shell Theatre where Elvis gave his first paid concert, and places where he worked and played), and other bountiful opportunities to learn about the King of Rock ‘n Roll!

When is the best time to go?

Summers are generally the busiest time to visit Tennessee, specifically the cities of Graceville and Nashville which are known for their music festivals. Around this season, Tennessee can be humid and hot, with temperatures ranging from 32C to 38C. However, you may be able to avoid the heat in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in the east which tends to be cooler at night. Fall in Tennessee can be dramatic and colourful. Starting late September, weather typically ranges from 16C to 28C. Then winter comes around and weather drops to an average of -2C. Spring tends to be the shoulder season for travel, but if you somehow find yourself in Tennessee at this time, you’re in for a nice surprise. Spring is probably the most attractive season in the southeastern part of United States – this is when trees are in full bloom and month-long festivals parade the vibrant streets.
