Not just walking tours, we now offer bicycle tours and rentals too. The ghost tour is our most popular tour, but visitors also love hearing about the rich past that lies just beneath the surface of Franklin's quaint Victorian charm. Site of "the most famous battle you've never heard of," according to National Geographic, Franklin's Civil War story will amaze and enlighten you on the most divisive time in American history. Just minutes south of Nashville, Franklin is often cited as one of the most beautiful downtowns in the U.S. Our enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides will make your visit to historic Franklin an unforgettable experience. Our tours include the Classic Franklin city tour, Civil War in Franklin, Grave Matters in the Cemetery, and for fans of evening activities, the Haunted Franklin, Ghosts of the Battlefield at the Lotz House and Murder and Mayhem Tours. Bicycle tours and rentals are available from March-November and our Southern Style food tours allow visitors to savor the flavors of Franklin and enjoy history at the same time. Most tours are available daily by advance reservation; some tours have minimums. Just call and see how flexible and accommodating we can be.

We had an awesome tour with Alicia leading us on the ghost tour. It was an interesting, entertaining and perfectly paced tour. Alicia was very engaging. While on the tour we visited the Cherry Manor. When my son went on the haunted porch he took a picture of an apparition in the bottom left window closet to the porch. My... More

We took the ghost tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a couple of young children and they loved it too. Alicia is an excellent story teller and knows a lot about the history and the place.

My husband and I came for a weekend getaway and a friend recommended that we do the Franklin on Foot food tour. I have an allergy to gluten so it seemed a bit impossible for me to do. But, the people at the tour company called each restaurant to assure they would be able to accommodate and keep me gluten... More

What a wonderful way to explore Franklin as a dutch person. I loved the ghost tour, it is really a story telling tour. Which made it fun, and not only gave you a better glimpse in the Franklin ghosts, also in its history, and the locals today. I had so much fun!

We loved our Civil War tour with Margie. You can tell she truly loves her career, loves working with people, and loves history. My family is very interested in the Civil War, but we still learned a lot of new, local information about it on our tour. Margie was also very helpful and flexible when we scheduled our tour.
