Not quite as good as the Sun Studio tour in Memphis but definitely a must do when in Nashville. Tour guide made the visit really memorable, poignant that the studio closed the day after Elvis died.

Experience where the winners of yesterday started their march to fame. Studio B was the place it all began. The Docent is a wonderful story teller who relates the personalities, their talents and the technology of the day, mixing it all in a wonderful way. You will be surprised on how basic and simple it all was at the beginning.... More

Don't waste your money. Not worth it at all. Our bus was broken, arrived half an hour later, got a guide that just took us to the studio an came back, played some records. Nothing to do with what I was promised and I read in the loney planet.

We did the Studio tour as part of the Country Music Hall of Fame package. It was so great. Our tour guide was wonderful. She gave us tons of history on the Studio and country music. The place looks like it would in the 60's and I loved it. We got to see where some great singers recorded their hit... More

To tour the RCA Studio B you need to book it as a package, as part of the Country Music Hall of Fame entry. A couple of days a week the Studio is actually used by Belmont University, so check you dates up front. The tour leaves on a bus from the front of the Country Music Hall of Fame... More

I'm a musician and thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Got to sit at Elvis' favorite piano and got some good insight into the recording process that went on there back in the day.

While on a group tour in Nashville, we visited the RCA Studio B. I thought it may be interesting but that no idea the history and importance such a small building had on shaping musical history. Our guide had superior knowledge and you could feel her passion. Amazing! A must visit!
