After our visit to Graceland this tour was the icing on the cake. We caught the free shuttle just tip the driver which runs every hour from the Graceland Ticket Office area to Sun Studios/Beale Street. Sun Studios was were it all started for Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and many others. Our tour guide was a passionate young lady with a great sense of humour and wealth of knowledge about the history of the studio. The culmination of the tour was a visit to the actual recording studio where Elvis made his first recording and we got to hold the microphone that he used. There is a cafe there and lots of souvenirs for purchase. Make sure you also check out Beale Street.
As a Disc Jockey specializing in 40's 50's and 60's this was a great experience to see and touch where so much history was made. The tour Guide was awesome very informative and entertaining. I will be back again for sure loved it

considering all the size of the venue the tour was excellent, so glad i did it. the tour guide was great and you could take as many photographs as you wanted and didn't feel rushed at all.
This was an awesome experience for the entire family. My husband is a musician and he loved it. They were filled with history and the tour girl was fun and informative. The studio still records music today in this 1950's started recording studio. Everyone should stop by Sun Studios and enjoy the entire experience.
Great experience - tour director very knowledgeable. Very nostalgic.
A great tour. Lots of music information. Tour guide was awesome. I highly recommend tour while in Memphis.
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.

For all fans of music a must , great tour presented by a very enthusiastic host
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.
1 hour of great facts, pictures and atmosphere. Guide new his stuff and made the tour a great experiance, a must visit when 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.
Really interesting tour with a great guide, illustrated with sound clips.
Any music fan, especially of the baby boom generation, will find it exciting. The roots of rock and roll are in this studio, The guide did an excellent job of bringing the story to life. We grew up with Elvis, Johnny Cash , etc. It was a thrill.
We were lucky to have a great and humorous guide who talked us through how forward thinking and adventurous Sam Phillips created Sun Studios. How the story of how Elvis started and the million dollar quartet. To be in the very studio where it all happened was simply amazing
