Civil War and Plantation Tour from Nashville
From US$69.00
Learn more about the Civil War and the Lotz House, Carter House, and Carnton Plantation, with a guide to show the way. This Civil War tour includes round-trip transport from your Nashville hotel, all entrance fees, and guided commentary for a stress-free trip from the state capital.
What to Expect
This Civil War and plantation tour begins with a pickup from your Nashville hotel. Board a climate-controlled vehicle, and enjoy the ride to Franklin, which is about 30 minutes away.
