Tennessee Express Tours has been taking care of groups in Tennessee for more than 40 years.

It all really got its start back in 1971 when Spence Oliver bought the Albert Pick Motel in Nashville. Over the next few years, he began packaging his rooms and restaurant with tickets to the Grand Ole Opry for bus groups coming primarily out of the midwestern states of Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana. Over the years, his clientele grew and, in 1981, he sold the Albert Pick and began running trips into the Executive Inn in Nashville. While managing the Executive Inn, he purchased Nashville Express Tours and later left the hotel business completely to concentrate on his receptive business. Over the years, Spence’s business expanded and in 1991, his son Bill started taking care of groups in the Smoky Mountains operating under Tennessee Receptive Services. Late in 2007, Spence went into semi retirement. Bill Oliver purchased the rights to Nashville Express Tours and now operates groups into middle and east Tennessee as Tennessee Express Tours.

There is a lot of history in this company and it is a history of service. We have great guides in both Nashville and the Smoky Mountains and a great reputation for taking care of our guests.

Don’t let ANYBODY tell you they can beat our rates or exceed our service.

Since 1974 – that is over 40 years – we have been the best at packaging in Tennessee.  We have great relationships with our clients and our travel partners.  If you are not currently one of our clients, try us now. You will not be disappointed!
