Great experience

Great experience. Paced well with enough time to look and take pictures. Knowledgeable tour guide. Easy check in with viator vouchers.
Mediocre- save your money
, Jul 2021
Had I known, I would have passed on this tour. My tour guide was soft spoken, while he had a mic system it rarely had the right placement for it to be of use. He was often drowned out by background music. The one really infuriating part was being interrupted four times by the other tour groups crossing paths. This tour system seems to really only be about profit. The only successful part was theatrical Garth Brooks trailer to hype you and give an intro in the beginning. The tour was quick.
Don’t go through Viator!

The tour was great! However, it was very inconvenient that the tour guide was unable to scan my e-ticket provided by via toe. I had to go to the ticket office and have them printed off. Don’t go through Viator!!! Go directly through Grand Ole Opry website.
Great backstage tour

Kendall was amazing. We loved our tour. Viator never disappoints. We especially loved the tidbits of information about the process of stars getting ready and who opens up their area to who
Everything I expected.
