What’s the value in paying for a tour?

You’ll have a designated driver while you get to relax and enjoy the scenery of the rolling hills of Tennessee. You won’t get lost, you’ll get to mingle and make friends with fellow tour companions, and carpooling is environmentally friendly.

Can we drink alcoholic beverages on the bus?

Yes, it is permissible on the bus, but never outside of the vehicle. In Tennessee, you must be 21 to legally imbibe (on the bus and off). But don’t over-serve yourself, or you might be hitchhiking back to Nashville.

Do you sell booze on the bus?

Negative. That is illegal, but a rolling liquor store isn’t a half bad idea. You’ll be able to purchase your favorites at the distilleries.

What about water?

Hydration is important, so we’ll have complimentary water on the bus — not the charcoal mellowed kind.

Minimum/maximum participants per tour?

We can have up to as many friends as you have or as few as a dozen passengers. If you feel like spending some cash, we’ll even take two folks. Just let us know, and we’ll see what we can do.

Where do we eat for lunch?

Usually, we have prearranged eating spots like a good BBQ joint or perhaps some hot chicken. In some cases, you will be free to explore a stopping point and fend for yourself or you can pack a lunch and we’ll gladly store it for you on the bus. Bottom line: everyone gets to eat.

Should we tip the tour guides?

That’s up to you. If the guides do a good job then sure. If not, then no.

How far in advance should we book a tour?

If you’re interested, you should book quickly. Tours do fill up far in advance.

How long are the tours?

Most last 6-7 hours. It’s kinda like a workday…only you’re not working. We can do shorter, we can do longer.

Is the bus a big yellow school bus?

“The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round”…nope. It’s a nice, comfy, air-conditioned, non-smelly bus. You will approve.

Do you offer private tours?

Absolutely! Office field trips. Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties, Birthdays. Check out our Private Whiskey Adventures for more information and booking.

I don’t like whiskey. Should I still book a tour?

Yes, because it’s fun and educational! If you hate fun and learning new things, then maybe not. We won’t try to convert you to a whiskey aficionado. Ok, yes we will, but we won’t be pushy. Some of these distilleries even have gin, vodkas, and other interesting spirits.

How much do tours cost?

Depends on the tour. Custom pricing is also available for private tours.

Is there a refund policy?

Tickets are non-refundable. However, they are transferable should someone not be able to make the tour. Should mechanical failures or other unforeseen circumstances disrupt or shorten the tour ticket cost will be refunded accordingly. Did you miss the bus? Don’t expect a refund.

Can I bring my kids?

Sorry. This is an adults-only excursion.

Is your bus handicap accessible?

The bus is not handicap accessible nor are most of the distilleries. However, please call us, with appropriate notice, to inquire about accessibility concerns.

Do you offer gift cards?

Yes, we sure do. Go here to purchase: GIFT CARDS.

What tour is included at Jack Daniel’s?

We do the Angel’s Share tour. This is about an hour and a half tour and is the best option. This is a tasting tour.
