Very Informative Belle Meade Guided "Journey to Jubilee" Guided History Tour

Very interesting tour. Our tour guide was Anastasia and she knew so much. She answered all our questions and made the tour interactive and almost a discussion. Overall she cared. she wanted to tell the story of those people who have no names as they were not recorded and not even marked graves. Apart of American history that should never be forgotten. At the end we had a wine tasting which was a good end to the tour. Bell Meade has beautiful grounds.

Excellent tour of the mansion Belle Meade Guided Mansion Tour with Complimentary Wine Tasting

Our tour guide, Casey was the perfect combination of knowledge, wit, and professionalism. He kept the tour interesting, and he knew the answers to every question that our group posed, which was impressive given the diversity and scope of the questions that were asked. The mansion itself is well kept and true to period with many of the original furnishings. Be sure to tour the grounds on your own so that you get the complete history of the impressive estate. It is a beautiful and serene setting to enjoy.

A truly eye opening and impactful experience! Highly reccommend ! Belle Meade "Journey to Jubilee" Guided History Tour

The Journey to Jubilee was honestly incredible and went above/beyond my expectations. Our guide Taylor was super knowledgable, and we learned so much from her. She really respected the land and the experiences of the African Americans who were instrumental in running Belle Meade. She made the journey all about them, not just their sufferings, but their accomplishments as well. I'd highly recommend this experience, especially as someone travelling from outside of the US...
