Here is what we came up with for a Nashville/Pigeon Forge bus trip. Look this over and let me know if you are interested. We have to start preparing a list to see if we have enough people to do the trip. We also have to purchase Opry tickets right away to be safe. Members of the fiddle group will be listed first, then we will finish filling the bus with others.
Price per person double $1020 Total for two people $2040
Price per person triple $ 875 Total for three people $2625
Price per person quad $ 800 Total for four people $3200
Deluxe Bus transportation, accommodations, admission to the Dixie Stampede Dinner Show, Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show, Country jamboree Breakfast Show, Smokey Jamboree Opry, Comedy Barn and the Grand Ole Opry.
Note: The following are not included in the trip price but are things we may want to do.
We can visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, with 15 or more we can get a group price which as I recall was very reasonable in the $10 to $12 range.
Also a guided tour of the Ryman, again with a group in the $10 to $12
Our Motel is very short walk from the Midnite Jamboree Theatre again very reasonable admission.
For the shoppers our motel is walking distance from an outlet mall and only 5 minutes from the Opry Mill, another very large shopping centre.
We attend a large Flea market on Sunday afternoon.
Dollywood is not included in trip price and is in the $40 to $45 range for the day. This price includes all the rides, shows, everything but food. In buying group tickets we get three complimentary tickets and last time we divided the total cost by the number of people and it worked out to around $41 each.
