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.

My wife and I took the Classic Franklin Tour with Alicia as our guide. She did a wonderful job of bringing the city's history to life. We especially appreciated her enthusiasm, her sense of humor, and her gift for storytelling. We plan to return to Franklin and take additional tours with Franklin on Foot.

A nice little day trip while visiting Nashville. Lots of different shops and restaurants. Although we did not visit them there are also several Civil War era sites just outside of the downtown area too

Our ghost tour guide was Alicia and despite the wet weather we had a tremendous time. We have done a number of ghost tours and this was near the top. She was a great story teller.

Went on our first Franklin ghost tour and had so much fun! Plus, the perfect amount of spookiness! Alicia was a great storyteller and we learned some new historical facts about this great town!
