This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee
Meet your knowledgeable guide in the Grand Ole Opry to start your small-group tour of the concert hall that made country music famous. As you walk backstage, hear entertaining stories form your guide about the Opry and the country music greats who have played here since the original radio show debuted in 1925. Look at photos from key moments in the history of the Opry and snap your own photos of the artist’s entrance, where superstars and up-and-coming musicians alike make their entrance before a show.
Have the chance to walk on stage and step onto the famous wooden circle where hundreds of artists have performed. The six-foot oak wood circle was cut from the stage of the Opry's former home at the Ryman Auditorium. Legends such as Patsy Cline, Uncle Dave Macon and Ernest Tubb once performed on the same boards.
Your tour also stops in Studio A, a live television studio that once broadcast the TV show Hee Haw. Then get a glimpse of some of the artist’s dressing rooms, which were refurbished after the Nashville flood of 2010. Each room features a theme such as the 1960s-style "It Takes Two" room, which is dedicated to great duets like June Carter and Johnny Cash.
To round out your tour, watch a video hosted by a newer member of the Opry family, Blake Shelton. Throughout your tour, via video, the young country music star gives you his perspective on what it’s like behind the scenes at the Opry. You also get to see performance footage from the past and details about more recent events, including the 2010 flood that caused considerable damage to the building.

Everyone who visits Nashville should do the backstage Grand Ole Opry tour!
The backstage tour is fun to see. Purchasing these tickets through Viator did prove a little troublesome. They could not find our reservation at first. Luckily another agent got invloved and figured it out. But again, the purchase through Viator was a little troublesome.
You have to go do this,,it was cool to see the rooms that the artists stay in till there time to play, also to hear the history of the Opry
This was a very nice tour from start to finish. You get to see the dressing rooms backstage, and then walk out on the stage to stand behind the infamous microphone.
Absolutely amazing tour! You get a thorough history of the Ryman and Grand Ole Opry. You also get to see all of the backstage rooms along with the personal mailboxes for country celebrity singers. Then -- you can even have your picture taken on the stage. Amazing tour!
Once again Viator arranged a wonderful tour of the Grand Ole Oprey. I use Viator for nearly all my excursions and they always give 100. Excellent tour with all the backstage stars dressing rooms that are seen in the Tv series. Went on stage really surreal
Wonderful tour. Seeing and hearing the backstage stories was very interesting. We would recommend this as a nice followup to attending a performance at the GOO.
Had a great/fun tour. The young gentleman who did our tour was very knowledgeable and funny. I suggest the tour to anyone who is a fan of the Grand Ole Opry.
The backstage tour was a lot of fun. We visited the studio where HeeHaw was filmed. We visited the dressing rooms. We went onstage. We learned a lot about the Grand Ole Opry.
The backstage tour was a wonderful experience. I would recommend it to anyone who visits Nashville. You must see the show as well while you are doing this tour. The tour was one of the highlights of our trip.
