Absolutely excellent talk by “Plez?” Wonderful tour of facility. Only negative was Clara (?) on reception, who was more interested in her cell phone than giving the correct information regarding the Graceland shuttle availability.
This was a fantastic trip the place is iconic and to be there is mesmerising.
One cannot visit Memphis without going here. The tour guide was very informative and I enjoyed every minute.
Just incredible. To stand in the same place that so many greats like Elvis, Cash, BB King, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, U2 and so many others have recorded is just amazing. Tour is very thorough, wish I could have stayed all day and just listened to the music!
My best experience in Memphis you can feel the atmosphere in the studio and to see the microphone used by such iconic artists was amazing
Amazing tour - highlight of Memphis. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great tour with a fantastic guide who knew lots of information and was great fun
This tour was amazing!!! I have always been an Elvis fan and this was where it all began. Our guide was one of the best. His stories and information left me in awe. He even gave us a recital on the famous piano where Jerry Lee stubbed out his cigar on the keys. If you haven't been on this tour you are missing out big time. Well worth the time and effort.
Well worth a visit ...the guide was great too,he knew just about everything there is to know,you cannot come to memphis and not visit
The trip of Sun Studio was wonderful. Our tour guide Tiffany was very informative and friendly
Slight snag at beginning, but officials handled the issue effectively.
The young guide just a new job for him gave a really good explanation about everything, you could see that he is born with music between his ears. It was a nice tour, I would recommend it to everyone who is into music !
Having heard/read about Sun Studios made going here an adventure as I wanted to see if information given me matched with what I saw. Was most taken with the history displayed and while there were highly profiled artists written about eg. Presley, Cash, Perkins - displays also paid homage to those people who were key in the development of this era. Tour guide's presentation skills also made this tour a joy to participate in.
We arrived a few minutes into the tour but still felt like we didn't miss enough to worry about, their were quite a few people in the small upstairs space but everyone moved around a bit so you could see the displays. I thought the Dewey Phillips display was spectacular, very impressed on how accurate it looked and felt like you took a walk into the past. Downstairs was more open and just as I had imagined it would look, loved that they put a mark on the floor to show where Elvis stood and recorded his music. Our guide was super friendly and we had a wonderful look back as well as a feel of the microphone the stars used back then. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a music fan, we left knowing a whole lot more than we knew before we stepped foot into Sun Studio
The tour was awesome - our guide was very knowledgeable and you can tell music is his passion when he talked about it. Loved being able to see the DJ booth from the station and the recording studio
This was so much fun! We loved standing in the very spot that Rock was born!
A lot of information and history is presented on this tour and it gives an insight to the music industry at that time.
