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!

We were picked up from the hotel on a smaller bus and taken to the coach. Both drivers were very friendly and our driver to Memphis was funny, informative and safe! The coach was not full so there was plenty of room to spread out. The journey went quicker than expected! Graceland was very interesting, it took us around an hour to view it. There were groups entering the house one after another so at times it was busy in the rooms. The Audio tour was useful. Sun studios was ok but too busy for me. Beale Street was good to see, the live bands in the bars/restaurants were good. We went to the Peabody for the duck walk, it was busier than expected in February with people all trying to get a video/photo! We did the vip tour but I’d recommend in quieter months just doing the normal tour.

We had a great time in Memphis and our driver was wonderful. My only suggestion would be less time in Graceland and more time on Beale Street. We ended up just sitting for an hour waiting to leave Graceland wishing we could leave sooner!

It was a very good trip & good value but a very long day. Didn't have breakfast as didn't realise we wouldn't get a stop on way or could have brought packed lunch. Mral stop not until 4.30pm after being picked up at 6.30am. On the whole a very enjoyable day.
