Excellent tour!! This was a very informative and educational experience. I’m so glad I was able to go on this tour as it really shaped my understanding of the black experience. We discussed race relations in Nashville in the past and present through a historical context. Our

Worth every minute! This tour provided a deep understanding of Nashville African American culture and history. I learned about American history and how the economy is connected to slavery. It gave us a chance to see the real Nashville others won't show you. Out of all of the

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour.  Chakita was friendly and personable and was able to explain the largely untold story of the contributions that African Americans have made in Nashville.  I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to know more about African

The tour was a great introduction to the geography and places of Nashville downtown. Chaquita knew where to go and what to see and, most importantly, what to emphasize in the history of African-Americans in Nashville and Tennessee. Hearing her and seeing the monuments gave the

Very disappointing. The guide’s knowledge was very superficial. We started 20minutes late, as the guide was not at agreed meeting point. The tour was advertised as an hour and a half but took only just over an hour. It did not finish at Capitol as advertised. It was very

Response from NashvilleTours, Owner at Tour of African American Culture
Responded 11 Mar 2019
Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to write to us and express your grievances on how our services did not meet your expectations. At United Street Tours, our greatest desire is to ensure our customers are satisfied at all levels and we regret that we let you down. You booked approx. 3-months in advance and in between that time, our starting and ending location changed due to the abnormally cold, below 20-degree weather that we experienced at the beginning of March. At the time, we felt that it would be better to begin the tour in the heat at the Nashville Visitor’s Center as well as end the tour in the heat at the historic Woolworth Restaurant were the sit-ins took place during the civil rights movement instead of outside at the Capitol Building to provide a better customer experience. However, this was not communicated to you in advance to our fault. This information has been updated on our booking platforms as a result of your feedback so thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please accept our sincere apology for the difficulties we have caused you. Our aspiration is to keep you as one of our most valued customers, and we hope to serve you better in subsequent times. As stated during our private correspondence, if you would like to discuss this further, we are available by phone at 615-447-8107. We’re open to suggestions that you may have to make this right. Sincerely, Chakita
