If you’re looking for unique ways to celebrate when in Nashville, then these party bus experiences could be the tours you are looking for.
Sometimes you want something more than the standard, narrated tours. Sometimes you want to party down in Music City style. Read on for a look at some of Nashville’s most fun party bus experiences, tours that let you join the party and immerse yourself in the heart and soul of this iconic city. Each one offers its own unique take on the party experience offering various types of music, booze and activities. Most invite you to dance and almost all have coolers for you to store your drinks. The vehicles range from traditional buses to tractors to military trucks. There are plenty of options whether you are looking to book a private party or are traveling on your own and want to hop onto a tour.
Tractor Party Tour
While not exactly a bus, Nashville’s biggest tractor party wagon offers the only moonshine party attraction in town. It invites you to paint the town red with its onboard stereo and LED dance floor. The custom party wagon is pulled by a bright red Case IH tractor. You can sit on a horse saddle while the dance floor lights pulse to the beat of the music. There’s a cash bar with beer and seltzers priced from $6 to $9. Joining you is the tractor driver and a professional entertainer. You must be at least 21 years of age and the tour lasts 75 minutes. From $45.
Nashville Public Party Bus with Bartender and DJ
Why choose between taking a tour or having a party when you can do both? This 2-hour party bus experience on Joyride’s Tin Roof Party Bus includes an on-site bartender and a DJ who will take requests for your favorite tunes. The bus features cup holders, phone chargers and decorative lights. Each group decides the flavor of the tour–whether it will be a full sightseeing tour, a party on wheels or something in between. Since drinks will be flowing, you must be 21 to join the party. The party starts at The Green Light Bar where you can get drinks and food to take on the bus. Starting at $65.
Big Drag Party Bus Nashville Tour
This is your only opportunity in Nashville to ride a party bus hosted by drag queens. The 1.5-hour tour is filled with icebreakers, interactive party games and sing-alongs. Guests are encouraged to bring their own adult beverages and food and take advantage of the built-in coolers. The air-conditioned bus features a professional sound system and LED/laser lights to make the most of the drag performances. The tour providers invite people to celebrate bachelorette, birthday, divorce and going-away parties. With a max tour size of 25, tours begin at Tribe, a Midtown “everybody friendly” video bar. As is customary with drag shows, guests are encouraged to give cash tips (bring lots of $1 bills) during the performances, usually about $20 to $30 per person. Guests need to be 18 years of age or older. Tour rates start at $60.
Hell on Wheels Party Truck Tour
Maybe you want to party with a purpose? To have a grand old time on Nashville’s Broadway while supporting the troops? If so, you can hop on to Nashville’s only military party truck tour. Led by a VIP party concierge, it boasts the world’s loudest wireless sound system and the best party playlist. Better yet, portions of the proceeds go to benefit the Homes for Our Troops organization. The trucks contain a military cargo top so that they can keep the party going no matter what the weather. The tour is BYOB and they provide YETI 110 coolers to keep your drinks icy. Tours last 1.5 hours and only private ones are available. Starting at $479.
Tipsea Scavenger Hunt
For those who enjoy party games, the Tipsea Scavenger Hunt is the party bus experience to book. The two-hour tour includes Nashville’s top-rated scavenger hunt, singing, dancing and drinking. The bus makes several stops at local bars to keep participants “Tipsea” enough to perform and enjoy the hunt. Each guest installs an app to participate in the interactive hunt both on and off the bus. The trip includes tour stops with photo ops and every participant is given a Nashville Party Barge Koozie. The Nashville Party Barge–which offers several other experiences including a “mimosa and mural” and a “winetastic” cruise–is woman- and veteran-owned. The tour is offered three times a day. From $40.
