The Hound Dog tour was fabulous.

The 4 of us had a great time on the Hound Dog Tour. Brad Berkendall was incredible and we loved his singing of the Elvis songs. I even stood on the stage at the Overton Park Shell and belted out "That's Alright Mama" while he played it on the guitar. I loved getting to kiss the bedroom wall at the Presley apartment at Lauderdale Courts.

I will probably do the tour again next year.

Very good overall.

The reception was good and we relaxed a little inside.

The tour guide was knowledgeable and actually practiced in this field.

We were able to get to the Memphis Mafia show without too much delay.

The tour went so smooth and never did we feel like we were rushed. Had time to see everything and to stop and relax and have something to eat. Would do this again if we are even in Memphis again

Dark Side of Memphis
Sun, Jul 28, 13   8:30 PM gearyg Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Our guide, Erica, was a little late but more than made up for it! She knew the history of the city and area and she made it come alive!

We even had a little interaction with little Mary at the Orpheum on our way back to our car. We had stopped and were chatting with Erica. I checked my phone to see what time it was and my phone showed a few minutes after midnight. We were all surprised as it didn't seem to be that late. When we got back to the car, we checked the clock and it was showing a little after 11:00! So we checked my phone and it was also showing a little after 11:00! We think little Mary was just having some fun with us! It made a nice ending for a very enjoyable evening! Erica was amazing!

Best tour I've been on
Fri, Jul 12, 13   11:30 AM Faithvaught Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The young lady who was the tour guide was very personable. She had a lot of knowledge about the spots that we visited and was enthusiastic about the town. She sang songs about each spot we were at and got the whole bus involved in singing and playing instruments. She acted as though she was a friend taking us around the town and not like a tour guide who had done it many times before.

The tour at Sun Studios was done by a young man who loved his job. He also was enthusiastic about what he was talking about and showing us the studio. We did not feel rushed even though there was a tour every half hour. There was plenty of time for everyone who wanted a picture with the microphone that Elvis used to have taken.

The tour was about all of Memphis and the different types of music developed there and the historical aspects and not just Elvis.

entertaining and informative

We learned some interesting tidbits about some of the better known Memphis artists and background on the inspiration for some songs.. He played songs by many Stax artists and we were all invited to sing along. It was fun and this is a nice thing to do on a hot Memphis summer day as the bus was air conditioned and comfortable.

Not Happy with no notification of changes
Sun, Jun 9, 13   10:00 AM gordonknott Male 60-69 Unspecified Family Without Children
First of all, the tour was purchased online which advertised music to be played by an individual. When we got there, we found out there was not music because per one employee " we had to cut expenses due to the purchase of the new bus" We recd no notification of the change. Secondly, the bus was 30 minutes late to pick us up due to a music issue on another tour that day. It would have been nice if someone would have dropped us a call to let us know the bus would be late. We could have spent more time in the exibits. Even with those two issues, the driver Kevin was very nice and the trip to and from Graceland was quick. He dropped us off and picked us up right by the entry point to go on the Graceland tour. If they get their act together with proper notificatons of change, they will have a nice set up for tourists.

My wife and I enjoyed the new bus and our talented musician host. Great stop at Sun Studio to learn more about the Memphis music era. The bus took us by several Memphis locations and the host did a great job entertaining along the route. Would recommend this tour.
