Explore Memphis with a private tour guide
This tour is a great introduction for those who have never visited Memphis before. From Graceland to Victorian Village where there are Mansion's built in the 1800's, you choose when and where we go. For True Elvis fans, I recommend you go there on your own. The new entertainment center is great and very engaging, some may want to stay for hours if you don't, I will be more than happy to take you.
I can make some suggestions, but many travelers will want to visit Sun Studios, Stax Studio's, The Rock and Soul Museum, or The Blue's Museum. The Gibson Guitar Factory is moving and as of March of 2019, they're closed. A drive by the home Elvis lived in before Graceland and the apartment the Presley's lived in Lauderdale Courts. The Pink Palace Museum has an Imax Theater and Planetarium.
After your tour, for those interested in night life, not only is there Beale St, I'll offer you some suggestion. This is your private personal tour so we go where you want and for how long, loose itineraries are best.

My husband and I had one day in Memphis while traveling through to somewhere else. John gave us an excellent overview of the city in our 4 hours together. He also gave excellent recommendations for where to stay and eat even before we arrived. As usual, a tour by a local gives you so much more insight/information that you would ever obtain on your own. Next time you are in the area, book some of John's southern charm.
