Fantastic--one of the best bus tours I have ever been on. Chinistra sp? our guide was really, really talented, and singing and playing along to blues and early rock classics was a blast. I don't usually write online reviews, but had to do so on this one!

If you like history and music, youll love this tour and appreciate the roots of the Memphis music scene. Driver and musician were excellent. I plan on doing this again on my next trip to Memphis.

This was very fun. Our singing/guitar-playing tour guide was very energetic and charismatic, and knew a lot! You learn a lot about Memphis music history and ride by sites related to Elvis and B.B. King and Jerry Lee Lewis among other historical sites, including the Lorraine hotel. Most of the time youre on the bus, though you do stop at the park where Elvis and others took the stage. I definitely recommend upgrading to the Sun Studios tour. That was an amazing tour with a different tour guide considering its basically just two rooms youre seeing but the guide made it a very entertaining and interactive experience.

Really great tour.
Jump onto a bus with several others and a storyteller / singer with his guitar. Get handed a tambourine, bongo or shaker.
Lets make music!!
The young singer was so enthusiastic about telling and singing the stories that have made rock and roll history.
Touring Memphis from site to site with a couple of short exit the bus stops all the time singing and tambourining.
We did the extension of Sun Studio. Just stay on the bus, Sun Studio tour then bus back to Beale Street.
The driver was a bit grumpy, but funny grumpy.
