Tonya, our driver, was extremely helpful. She was able to wrangle a bus load of 53 people at Graceland, get them all checked in with badges and passes and get them herded onto the VIP shuttle buses quickly and efficiently. She was excellent at explaining what the process was and managing expectations. Plenty of time was allowed for the Graceland tour as well as the all the attractions and lunch. The tour of Sun Recording Studio was excellent with a lot of history. Our trip to Beale street was interesting but the duck parade at the Peabody Hotel was something we're glad we didn't miss. Overall I'd recommend it to anyone, even someone who isn't a huge Elvis fan like me.

The tour guide ( Lana) for Sun Studio was very knowledgeable and entertaining and really loved Country Music heritage. For Graceland, they give you I-pads and headphones and it was confusing to get the I pads to work and to stay on English.

Tour guide was very friendly and told stories, many of which were enjoyable. It was a long trip so having a video was nice, albeit a bit loud. Guide was clear with her directions so that was really helpful A full day!

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.
