Tanya, our driver and guide was exceptional all day long. She was warm and friendly to the group and couldn't have been more helpful if she tried. She really worked hard ALL day to ensure we all had a great day. She was flexible and very accommodating offering us choices of what we'd like to do and instead of dropping us back in downtown Nashville, she took us all back safely to our individual hotels. It was Tanya's first time doing the Memphis tour and she made us all aware of it and we were happy to learn along the way with her, such was her engaging manner. Tanya was even positive when there was a faulty windscreen wiper and we were driving in heavy rain, she didn't fuss or worry us, just dealt with it professionally. Tanya is a great ambassador for your company.On the day of the trip, it was my fiftieth birthday and Tanya was so lovely to me and made sure I had a great day.Thank you Tanya, you're a star!!

ITINERARY

From Music City to the Mississippi, Gray Line of Tennessee shows you the best there is to see. Come experience the legendary character of Memphis, TN and see why this city is mentioned in more song lyrics than any other place on Earth. Located on the Mighty Mississippi River, Memphis is the birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll, the capitol of Blues and home to some of the best bar-b-que you can put in your mouth.

Ride with Gray Line for a full day adventure as we walk in the footsteps of legends. Celebrate 60 years of Rock 'n' Roll with a visit to Elvis Presley's home, Graceland. We'll see the burial site of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, walk through the Elvis car museum, and see two deluxe airplanes that he used for tours and traveling. We will also take time for lunch on your own at Graceland, allowing you to get even more out of your time at this world-renowned place.

Next, we're off to learn what accident set Rock 'n' Roll in motion at Sam Phillips' famed Sun Studios in the heart of Downtown Memphis. Take a guided tour to see what the recording process used to be like. Hear the stories of how many legends got their start here, such as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the King himself, Elvis Presley.

A trip to Memphis wouldn't be complete without a duck walk. See the famous Peabody ducks make their way down the red carpet from their fountain to the elevator as they head to bed at the lavish Peabody Hotel. Hear the story about why this started and how it continues today.

Then take time on your own to explore Beale Street, where you could dive in to some Blues and bar-b-que, or take a short stroll to the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum. There's plenty to do in this lively downtown scene.

We will finish the day with a drive by the Mississippi River, so you can tell your friends and family that Gray Line of Tennessee showed you best Memphis has to offer.
