NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 6, 2019) – There’s a sweet new way to enjoy Nashville murals! Mint Julep Experiences has added the Sweet Start: Nashville Mural tour visiting eclectic neighborhoods for photo stops at popular murals and a donut and mimosa tasting flight. The new three-hour tour includes guided transportation to easily see a number of bright and colorful murals and is offered every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tickets are available now to join a public tour group at mintjuleptours.com or by calling 615-436-0187. All public tours depart from the Omni Nashville Hotel. Full vehicle buyouts for private groups are also available.
“When we considered all the options for a new handcrafted premium adventure for Nashville, we had to consider the artistic murals around the city which provide a landscape that shares Nashville’s uniqueness. Who wouldn't want to start their day with a paired flight of donuts, spirits and memorable pictures with friends?” said Mint Julep Experiences owner Sean Higgins. “We also realized we needed to expand our best selling adventure, the Jack Daniels Hometown Experience, to six days a week to manage the high demand for this exclusive approach.”
In addition to adding the Sweet Start experience, Mint Julep now offers its most popular tour, the Jack Daniel’s Hometown Experience, six days a week. The increase in availability addresses significant demand for an upscale tour option to Jack Daniel Distillery from downtown Nashville. Mint Julep Experiences earned TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in its first year in Nashville with rave reviews of its engaging tour guides, experiential tour offerings, and high-end tasting experiences. The award-winning tour operator, whose sister operation in Louisville is a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame member, has consistently expanded and updated its spirits, food and sightseeing tour options to cater to all aspects of Nashville’s booming tourism market.
