Our trip to Memphis by Grey lines was Suberb.. Tanya the driver top notch full of knowledge and a great driver.
I would recommend this to anyone who is an Elvis fan and even if your not one just the history of Elvis and the birth of rock and roll and Beale street is worth the trip! Both drivers were great and very friendly!
This was an awesome experience, however the Graceland part of the tour was too rushed, numerous people said this that were on the tour. There is not enough time to do Graceland, Sun Studios and Beale Street. We were rushed to complete the Graceland part of the tour and had to chose what to view as we were moving on and couldn't complete it all.
We loved this trip! Tanya was great! We felt safe and secure the whole trip, great driver! So worth traveling from Nashville to see Graceland, very comfortable and fun. Sun Studios was such a great experience as well. And then listening to some great blues on Beale Street! what a way to end the day! fantastic.
Tonya was our driver to Graceland, she was great. Funny, informative and generally entertaining. The trip was on my bucket list, and was totally worth the trip. We enjoyed the day, found it very informative and loved seeing where Elvis lived and all the memorabilia. I would recommend this trip to friends.
We had just an excellent day in spite of the damp weather.Gray Lines were very accommodating with pick-up and delivery places.The driver was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.Would recommend this trip to everyone.
Great trip! Tonya was awesome. Well worth the money! Plenty to do and see. If you go to Nashville and have time to visit Memphis you should take this tour!
All the drivers were wonderful. The day was long but well worth the time. Go if you can there is more to see than the past with the new museum area across the street.
Enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to anyone. Learned a lot about Elvis and his family and his music, very enjoyable.
the tour was more than we expected and the guide was very informative. We learned a lot more about Elvis on this tour than we did when he was alive. I also saw him when he was in Lake Tahoe. My friends and I saw him on the Ed Sullivan Show back in the day.
Got off to a slow start, problem at the main office, short staff due to family emergency. WE were off, Tonya was a very good driver and very knowledgeable about Memphis, places to see, where to eat, took us past Saint Jude's children hospital and a few other notable sights in Memphis, Our time at Graceland was very good , got to see all. Our ride back to Nashville was difficult because of heavy rain, Tonya did a great job of getting us back all safe and sound. I just have one question for Tonya why she told us to change our clocks.
Eine sehr gut organisierte Tour mit einer echt netten Busfahrerin die uns gut nach Memphis und zurück gebracht hat. Graceland ist wirklich einmalig und es gibt mehr zu sehen als ich gedacht hätte. Die Führung durch die Sun Studios war grandios. Die Zeit in Memphis ist leider etwas knapp bemessen, aber da die Fahrt hin und retour so lange dauert, ist dann wohl einfach nicht mehr mehr Zeit drin.
Had a great trip from Nashville to Memphis to see Graceland. Tonya was the best. She made everyone feel welcome right from the start. The Graceland tour was really interesting. And touring Sun records was awesome. Thanks to tonyas advice we had the best ribs ever at house of blues cafe. The ride over and make made for a long day but well worth it. I could have done without the Elvis video and music on the way back to Nashville. I think everyone was tired and just wanted to relax. All in all a great trip and worth the money
Tonya is a fabulous driver and guide! We loved our tour of Graceland and Memphis - Tonya was helpful in pointing out attractions and places to eat and we enjoyed her commentary
Make sure to put Graceland on your bucket list. it's definitely something you have to experience at least once in your lifetime. Our driver Tonya was the best! Thanks Tonya! The only negative thing was they had the actual Mansion decorated for Christmas because they were filming a Christmas show for the Hallmark Channel this year. I didn't expect the outdoor pictures to have Christmas decorations in them. Other than that it was a great experience. Met people from all over the world on our tour.
Was not disappointing. Our tour guide was Tanya with Grey Line and was a very well organized with safety first. She informed us of the different sights in Nashville as we were leaving the city toward Memphis. As we reached Memphis she instructed us of how the tour was handled. Great sense of humor. We enjoyed the Elvis video, although towards the end of the trip it became a little overwhelming. 5 star trip
I was a little hesitant to book this tour as I'd already been on this same tour last year which unfortunately was disastourious long story short- we were on a small bus with no toilet, we had a tyre blow out where the driver didnt even stop to check which put all of our safety at risk, the driver gave us no pointers, tips or anything- he hardly spoke and spent most of the journey driving 1 handed as busy on his mobile phone, we were rushed through Graceland, had to then wait 2 hours for the tyre to be fixed and then our back lights failed on the way home.
This trip however was FANTASTIC, our driver Tanya really was incredible, she was full of knowledge, banter and pointed lots of things out to us along the tour as we drove through places she'd slow down or stop for extra photo opportunities. The coach was great, it had a toilet, charging points for mobiles and even some tv screens so we got to watch Elvis clips and music along the way which really helped break up the long journey. We had a good amount of time at Graceland an hour more than my last experience and just enough time at Beale street to grab a bite to eat and a quick stroll around. I honestly cant thank Tanya the driver enough for turning our experience of last year completely around, I have thanked her in person and couldnt recommend her as a guide enough!
As long as you have her, you'll have an amazing day :o
The only thing I would say was that being in a larger group we had 45 of us the Sun Studio tour was a bit whirlwind, its a pretty small room so can be a bit hectic. Last year in a smaller group we did seem to have better opportunity for photos with the legendary Elvis microphone etc.
A must do trip!!! Our tour guide Tonia was wonderful.Very informative about all the places you visit on the tour and made us laugh along the way. It's a long day but a very comfortable and clean coach ride all the way. A very moving experience to visit the King of Rock n Roll's home.VIP was great, so no waiting in line! Awesome. Would highly recommend.A once in a lifetime experience.
Tonya the tour guide was absolutely amazing, Graceland was sensational, sun studios was fantastic, and Beale street was great! Would do this your all over again! Highly recommend!
