5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

FANTASTIC ! A must for Rock 'n' Roll, Soul and R and B music fans. This tour exceeded our expectations and was one of our most memorable tours ever. Our special thanks goes to Ms. Ecstasy Williams, one of the ladies who worked at the information desk at Graceland on the day of our tour, Sunday, Oct 20th. She enabled us to be admitted to Graceland, Stax Museum and Sun Studio because we unable to exchange our pre-paid Viator voucher for the Memphis Music Attraction Pass as Sweet Magnolia Tours was closed Saturdays and Sundays. Thank you Ecstasy.
Graceland was undeniably fantastic. We were impressed by the vast display of Elvis' Gold and Platinum Records and other memorabilia. There'll never be another Elvis - he was unique.
Stax Museum was equally great. We had no idea that so much of today's "classic" soul albums were recorded there. Truly monumental.
Sun Studio was a big surprise and just simply awesome. Here we were standing on the second floor of a tiny brick building on 706 Union St on "sacred ground" where Rock 'n' Roll was born ! We appreciated the young tour guide who was very motivated and re-told a vivid account of the history that was made there - his hand-out at the end of the tour pretty much sums up the importance of this place. The Sun Record Company "Greatest Hits" CD that we bought there is a cherished souvenir.
We were so engrossed with the first three tours that we arrived at the Rock 'n' Soul Museum too late to start this tour. That'll be for the next trip to Memphis. Thanks again Viator for these outstanding attractions in Memphis, a real highlight of our visit of the South.

Nashville Showboat Lunch or Dinner Cruise

Nashville, Tennessee

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was an enjoyable tour. We appreciated the warm welcome aboard the "Andrew Jackson" river boat. The lunch served aboard was good considering the difficulty in serving so many people at a time in two separate dining schedules. Steve Hall and Shotgun Red Show was fast paced, funny and had some outstanding country artists that got everyone stompin' their feet. We enjoyed the rest of the tour viewing the Nashville cityscape while cruising up and down the Cumberland River on a nice Autumn day. The shuttle bus service from the hotel was efficient and the drivers were friendly - we appreciated this service.
One comment however : the waiting area at the dock needed a little maintenance and housekeeping - some rust, dust and spider webs on the lights and under-roof areas.
