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.

I am in my mid 60s, accompanying me was my daughter and 10 year old granddaughter. The tour was enjoyed by us and all on the bus. I cannot remember the name of the performer but she was very talented. Her music and tour dialogue were both enjoyable and educational. A special memory of our first trip to Memphis for these Virginians!

Absolutely wonderful!!
Mon, Jun 3, 13   11:30 AM earlhaddix Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took the grandchildren (9 and 11 years old) on this tour and all four of us had a wonderful time- it was the highlight of our trip to Memphis. Based on their ages, the grandkids had never heard of half the artists whose songs were featured during the tour, but they were singing and playing the tambourine and shakers right along with the group- then called their parents as soon as it was over to tell them how much fun they had. The guide made sure everyone on the bus got caught up in the MoJo once she started singing the very first song. We would recommend this tour to everyone who visits Memphis. It brought back so many golden oldie memories of the popular tunes when we were young adults, presented with additional facts and info about the artists at the same time. We all learned something we didn't know before taking the tour. Loved it!

The guide/singer was wonderful

Alone, an old bus and a dilapidated city do not leave a positive impression. Add in a delightful tour guide and a wonderful singer and the activity becomes memorable and fascinating. We would recommend this tour to any visitor who wants to see more of Memphis and learn more of its history

Nancy Apple not only sings and plays but provides a wealth of fun and interesting background information about Memphis and its role in the development and evolution of American R and B and Rock and Roll. Without the tour we would have thought Memphis a much less significant place. If you miss this tour you may well miss the point about Memphis.
