Franklin on Foot is a tour company located in Historic Franklin, Tenn., that offers both daily walking and bike tours.
Our daily Classic Franklin guided walking tour is the perfect way to peek behind the town’s charming exterior at the people and events that have shaped it. The tour is offered Monday through Saturday at 10 a.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The Haunted Franklin tour will introduce you to Confederate soldiers, eccentric doyennes, suicidal businessmen and scandalous steel magnolias from Franklin’s past who just can’t seem to let go. After dark (and sometimes before, too), these long-departed Franklinites have been known to make appearances in the town’s downtown buildings. This tour is each evening at 8 p.m. or 7 p.m. during the winter months.
NEW! We offer two Franklin Bike Tour options. The Scenic Franklin tour will pass through the town’s most historic neighborhoods and coast along the Harpeth River-hugging bike path, taking participants through the Factory of Franklin and the O’More College of Design campus. The Civil War tour will pedal to historic destinations such as Fort Granger, the Collins Farm and Rest Haven Cemetery. It will also include tours of the Lotz House and Carter House Civil War museums. Visit the website for more details.
