We had a really fun time on this tour. The singing and stories and history pull everyone in - all ages and interests. Our 13 year old had fun. The Sun Studio part of the tour was excellent too.... Highly recommend this tour especially for people with kids - it will keep their interest.

This was a great tour - we had ours with Brandon and he told great stories and played some great music! We took the extended tour which included a tour of Sun Studio - our only regret there was that we didn't have more time to spend inside! Would highly recommend.

The basic tour was interesting and we all thought tour guide was talented musician as well as very personable. But; the extended tour was bogus. Our tour guide got off with the rest of the regular tour; then those that were left got hauled back to Sun Studios just in time for their tour. We were told that bus would leave exactly 20 minutes after the hour to be on time for the next tour, which did not leave much time for us after the tour to talk and look around. For this we paid an extra $6.00 per head over Sun's tour fee. We went back the next day for souvenirs, milkshakes and to just hang out. It was just disappointing. If someone asked; I would just recommend Sun Studio tour for just $12.00 and have money left over for a chocolate shake and a t-shirt. Backbeat can keep their eggs to themselves.

I was so impressed that the tour director called my cell phone because I was a couple minutes late. I had been stuck in traffic due to the flooding and was 1 block away in a parking garage. I was sure the bus would leave without me, but they held it a couple minutes while I ran to BB King's. Thank you!!! Our on-board musician, Nancy Apple, was informative and a very good entertainer. I would highly recommend this as one of the first things visitors do.

This tour is fun and informative. I don't normally like bus tours, but the entertainment got us moving -- and the whole group on the bus started singing and asking questions. It is a tour that I would take again. All the people involved from the ticket manager, tour guide, sun studio guide, and bus driver were very friendly and enthusiastic. Had a great time!

I was excited to do this tour because it had received some pretty decent reviews. Our reality was different. It was 90 minutes on an uncomfortable school bus with inadequate air conditioning. Granted, they did say at the beginning that there had been a change in transportation, but surely they could at least have made sure the a/c was working better. Other than that the 'entertainment' was ok, but very chatty with more than some personal experiences thrown in. I just wasn't that impressed.

Enjoyed the tour guide, Brad Cunning.. He was very knowledgeable and very talented. I was encourages by my son to take this tour and I was never disappointed. The Sun recording studio was interesting also but I think I enjoyed the bus trip the most.

This was a great way for first-timers to Memphis to get the lay of the land and quite a bit of history. We especially enjoyed our first experience with a singing tour guide. We highly recommend the extended tour with the trip to Sun Records.

We enjoyed the tour guide and her musical talent along with her great knowledge of the history of music in Memphis. This is a "can't miss" in terms of a visit to Memphis. I will highly recommend the tour to my friends.
