Here’s a review from Tripadvisor.com: “My wife and I had relatives in town from Birmingham. They love Civil War history and we thought this would be a good way to let them learn some history and eat some great food. We were not disappointed. The 3-hour tour took us to six great restaurants in Historic Franklin, Tennessee. We sampled some great food. No one will need dinner tonight. Great idea for out of town visitors. Margie knows her history and is a GREAT tour guide.”
