We recently purchased two tours on Viator.com for the highly recommended rockin’ Nashville Evening Trolley Tour! We have a link for Viator and information posted in the Travel Section of A New Yorker’s Point of View.

We also booked a Taste of Food and Sightseeing Tour focused on here.

We started the tour at the Far Better Distillery, a small distillery where the owner is passionate about “moonshine.” While I don’t generally keep moonshine at home, some readers may find its provenance and flavors fascinating.

It was time to visit the finest cookie shop named Christie Cookie. I tried the fabulous White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie. It practically knocked me off my feet!

Next was Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, famous for its variety of delicious specialties.

We each ordered a sampling of a rib, brisket, and potato popovers accompanied by an assortment of special dipping spices.

Our food-tasting tour was just getting warmed up! It was time for Aunt Pam’s Cookies, an artistic culinary staple of Nashville for almost 20 years. Their cookies have zero artificial preservatives or sweeteners. All proceeds directly support Aunt Pam’s Friend’s Program, which provides jobs for adults with mental disabilities. As a former educator, this especially touches my heart!

I selected the Bourbon Pecan Pie, a perfect trio of baked delights!

Our last stop was a home run at “Third and Home” for a serving of Hot Chicken and Flatbreads. This is a famed dish of Nashville.

 Viator.com is one site offering a Nashville tour, and it worked well for us. If you use Viator, request a tour guide named Scott. He was knowledgeable, pleasant, and added to the tour’s delight.
