The Basics

Twice each day, the Peabody Ducks are led by their "Duckmaster" (an official position in the hotel) from their home on the roof, down in an elevator, across a red carpet, and over to the Italian travertine marble fountain. During off hours, travelers can visit the ducks in their marble and glass rooftop “Royal Duck Palace.” Many Memphis city tours include a stop at the Peabody Hotel to see the famous web-footed residents.

Nashville to Memphis Daytrip with Graceland VIP Tour, Sun Studio, Peabody Hotel
This was a really great all day tour as I’ve always wanted to see Elvis’’ home, Graceland, Sun Studios and Beale Street!! It was amazing and you definitely need quite a few hours to do everything there!! Our bus driver, Frank, was very nice and it was really great not to have to drive and to sit and relax too!!!

Great time! Driver was excellent! Graceland Tour was great! Got more time than expected on Beale street enough for dinner and drinks and a quick walk down to see the Mississippi River. The sun record tour was really good as well!

A Bit of Peabody Duck Trivia

Peabody ducks—five North American mallards—are all raised by a local farmer, and each team of ducks only lives at the hotel for three months before returning to the farm to live out their lives in the wild. The hotel’s restaurant, Chez Philippe, might be the only French restaurant in the country that never serves duck on its menu.
