Bus driver was knowledgeable and entertaining. I especially liked this tour because it gave a "taste" of "everything Memphis." One can add on Graceland if one desires. I didn't, but I greatly enjoyed all the other sites/sights--Beale St., Peabody Hotel (ducks), St. Jude Garden, Lorraine Hotel, etc. I've recommended this to friends. (A bargain at $30!)

My husband and I, with another couple visited Memphis. We decided to tour the city with Blues City Tours and it was AMAZING! The tour guide, James, was very familiar and knowledgeable about the city's history and historic sights. He was humorous as well and kept us engaged. The tour also gave a us a chance to plan our evening/night-life... More

We took the City /Graceland Tour and were very pleased with the experience. The city tour with James/Jimmy hit all the main Memphis attractions for a one day visit or a preview of the tours/attractions you might want to pursue later in more depth, The included lunch on Beale St was good with about five options and a great singer...

Took this tour and loved our guide. He was funny and easy going. My only issue is I'm a die hard Elvis fan and a few things he spoke about were not accurate. He pointed to a hospital downtown saying Elvis died there and he did not. It was a great tour I just wondered after if some of the... More

Perhaps "tour" is an exaggeration since it consists of a pick up at the hotel, drop off at the museum and then a pickup and ride back to your hotel. You make your way through the museum on your own. A very worthwhile museum though, beautiful displays, extremely informative. It took us almost 3 hours to go through it.

This was a nice tour. The only issue was the bus was older so it was kind of loud so it made it hard at times to hear the tour guide especially for my elderly parents. The guide was super nice and very accommodating. We enjoyed the tour very much just needed a way to hear the guide better. Loved... More
