First time In Nashville and we didn’t want to do a party bus. We were glad that we found Pontoon Saloon! The crew was fantastic and the cruise down the river was a blast. The DJ got the party started and the beverages were ice cold. When we come back to town, this will once again be on our to do list. Thanks for the great time!

Had a wonderful time with our guide and driver Dale! He took pictures for us when needed and didn’t rush us at all. Very informative also.

A really fun ride. Great music, beautiful views and the crew was very helpful and kept everyone happy and having a great time.
