This tour, while light hearted, opened our eyes to the role that Memphis played in the development of many styles of music.

Great value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Memphis spot

The best visit we made in Memphis. The mansion is protected from tourists that are concentrated on the opposite side of the road with the stores and restaurant. The Elvis home is really as it was when he lived there, so it's an emotional moment for the fans.

The pick up near our hotel was fine and the bus gave the right ambiance with the 60's look. 1 hour more would be best to have more time by the place.

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 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.

Been there done that.

I'm not a big Elvis fan but very much a vintage audio equipment, vinyl and CD collector. Having lived through all this I wanted to see Graceland and found it historically intresting. Once is enough for me.

Harold the bus driver was great.

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!

Great overview of Memphis

Tour guide Emily was a major reason this tour was so enjoyable and educational. Being a native of Memphis, she added lots of information and anecdotes that I don't believe we could get from another source. We've been to Memphis before but taking this tour gave us a much better view of what Memphis is all about and how it evolved to where it is today. My husband, his brother and wife, and I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent and the things we saw and experienced on the tour.

Sorry we spent $60
Wed, Sep 17, 14   11:30 AM Mimicough Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
My husband and I were disappointed to find ourselves trapped on a bus with a want-to-be country singer who seemed more concerned with her unsuccessful singing career than providing relevant info. for the tour. We found ourselves trying to figure out what we were supposed to be seeing and where it was while the "guide" either kept singing or blabbing about some inconsequential event that happened to her or her sister. The driver didn't stop when guide was talking about specifics, or worse yet, she started telling us what we had just PASSED. Overall it was hardly a "tour" and more like the amatuer hour with a captive audience. Definitely would not recommend.
