Tour guide, a local Memphis musician, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Memphis, especially the music. He performed songs along the tour to punctuate the narrative. The best tour I've ever been on!

This is a fun tour

This tour is not just a sit and listen tour. You get involved, singing and laughing - heck! - some of you even get a tambourine (the rest get shakers), to sing and get involved with . I have been on two of these. One was the regular tour and I thought THAT one was great. This one added the tour of SUN STUDIOS, which in and of itself, is fabulous - a must do. The girl we had knew so much about the area and delivered that in a humorous and knowledgeable way but the knowledge of the artists, at the time - Elvis, B.B. King, etc.- is what sets this tour apart from others. This is a good one and everyone who wants to get some good 'background' before (or after) hitting the Memphis area, should do this. It is really good.

The local Backbeat office was very accommodating about our last minute change of schedule. Katy (?) the tour guide and Harold the driver were wonderful.

This tour was a great overview of Memphis and its incredible place in history. As a collector vintage audio equipment, vinyl and CD recordings this extended tour was too short.

Great and very Informative.

The tour guide was so nice and we loved the songs they sang along with the info. The only downfall was at Sun Studio. It was our first stop and in lieu of having to wait in a small room for 20 minutes or so, we should have been informed that we can walk around the front part of the shop. But beyond that, we enjoyed it and enjoyed taking pics by the microphone that "Elvis" and many other greats used. Would recommend this tour!

We loved this tour. Not only did we get an overview of the area and significant sights, we were entertained by a great musician! Would highly recommend this tour! We added the Sun tour to the basic tour which worked out great so we didn't have to drive and park. The staff from booking the tour to the driver were exceptional.

Just loved the music and stories. Our tour guide was great - sang all the songs like the original artists and was a great storyteller. Would do it again.

My husband & I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very personable & also very knowledgeable. The music the guide provided was wonderful. The guide interacted with us & has made the tour very memorable. We would recommend this tour to everyone. We took the extended tour & toured Sun Studios as well - we were glad we included this part because we learned some very interesting facts.
