For me just a great experience and something I've been wanting to do for so long, Memphis is just great.
Great tour helped all the more by our Driver Darnell who was full of life and gave us so many useful bits of information. Thoroughly recommend the tour and if you and #39;re lucky enough to get Darnell then your trip will be complete.
I went on a Saturday and it was fine, as the crowds were not that large. The company that took me to the venue were friendly and very obliging especially for a person travelling on their own. I was picked up as promised and on time after a 4 hour look around Gracelands and associated displays. Well worth the trip. I thought have a notepad with earphones a little cumbersome so ended up not using it just listening to the commentator.
Our tour had a rocky start, but once on our way, it was very enjoyable. The audio naration was very helpful. It gave us a personal look at the live of Elvis Presley. I was especially moved by the meditation garden. It felt as if his spirit was with us. I enjoyed seeing the photos of the young Presley family when life was not so complicate or demanding. Everything was displayed in a very professional manner. I was disappointed not to see the blue hawaii room which was advertised in the on-line tour description.
I would return to Graceland if the opportunity arose.
If you're an Elvis fan you shouldn't miss this. During the trip you will see Graceland, well organized tour, and Elvis' final resting place at Graceland. Then across the street you can see his collection of cars, all kind of memorabilia and a lot of gift shops. Also his two planes. The large one is worth visiting, the small one there is nothing much to see.
I would recommend choosing your time of visit carefully, the lines can be really big. In fact, I think more than 50 of our time was spent sitting in a line. The VIP concept is a joke there, there are no VIP lines, everybody's VIP, so everybody has to stay in line.
Another recommendation I would make is to use your own transportation, if available. The parking at Graceland seems to be safe, contrary to some reviews. I've seen plenty of expensive cars in the parking lot, which is right by the entrance to Graceland. I did not use my car to go there, but I should've. Instead I used the transportation that came with the tour and the result was leaving one hour later from the hotel, they changed the pickup time by one hour because of traffic but that was a lie, I'm sure it was because they didn't had anybody available to pick us up. Then we called when we finish the tour to be picked up from Graceland and taken back to the hotel and it was again almost an hour of wait until they found somebody that could come to pick us up. The transportation service was way too overextended at that time... So I would not recommend this, take your own car there or take a taxi or Uber, it will be faster...
Good place to visit, but expect long lines, slow shuttle service, hurried guides through the mansion, no second look, no matter what you pay.
