What You'll Get
A walking tour acquaints you with the city around you, helping you avoid disaster during future scavenger hunts and upcoming bouts of amnesia. Today’s Groupon gets you two hours of steps closer: for $15, you get admission for two to a 90-minute walking tour of Nashville from Shiny Shirt Tours (a $30 value). Tours should be booked at least 12 hours in advance and begin at the corner of 5th Avenue and Broadway.
Shiny Shirt Tours' engaging guide—the trivia-literate comedian Charlie McCoin—leads tour-goers through the Music City's historic sites and little-known treasures, sharing folklore about famous and infamous Nashville residents along the way. Foot-traveling groups of around 15 tourists gaze in awe at storied landmarks such as the Ryman Auditorium, the Music City Walk of Fame, and Printers Alley. Throughout the 90-minute, approximately 1.5-mile tour, Nashville native McCoin blends his quirky, clean wit with odd, compelling trivia, such as the surprising birthplace of the Grand Ole Opry, giving guests a peek into the city's history without needing to construct a time machine. Unlike crayon drawings of the Pentagon, McCoin exposes out-of-towners to a realistic portrait of Nashville.
Furthering its commitment to Nashville's rich community, Shiny Shirt Tours donates 10% of each tour’s proceeds to Nashville Rescue Mission, which helps combat homelessness and hunger in the Music City.
