The tour of Sun Records greatly exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful tour guide, Nick, who made the experience so memorable. He made us feel that we were transported back to that time with his stories and vignettes from the 50s and 60s. We liked it so much that following the tour we sat in the little soda shop and had a coffee. Kudos to Jake too for his help and kindness.

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing all the little stories and tales of those who passed through the studio. As an Elvis fan from way back seeing where he had done so much 'work' and all the memorabilia was just great. It was a wonderful way to begin my stay in Memphis.

If you are heading to Sun Studios you will probably already understand the significance of this place in modern music history. It is such an unassuming building and yet in those four walls stood most of the greats in American music. The tour is very low key but is given by very knowledge I guides who inform you about the history of Sun and Sam Phillips and the. Lead you through to the actual studio where Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins etc all made their music. The cafe and gift shop are very good also and I could not recommend this tour highly enough.
