This tour explores Memphis music including a trip to Tupelo Ms. and or Clarksdale Ms. with a private tour guide


This tour is a great introduction for those who have never visited Memphis. I personally like to start this tour at The Arcade Restaurant, the oldest Cafe in Memphis. It's where Elvis had a special booth as he'd look at a wall size mirror in case many fan's came in, he could slip out the door there. Most times you will be able to sit where Elvis would of sat. They say he always asked for a Peanut Butter and Bannana sandwich, which is grilled and incredible. Their specialty is breakfast, Ham, eggs, biscuits and gravy but burgers are also on the menu.
Fans have told me they thought it was better to go to Elvis's birthplace in Tupelo, before Graceland but this is always up to you as this is your private tour. Johnnie's Drive Inn, the Hardware store where Elvis bought his first guitar. Then back to Memphis for Sun Studio's, Stax, The Rock and Soul Museum, the apt. the Presley's first lived in when they moved to Memphis, Elvis's home before Graceland, then Graceland.

Itinerary

Most people want to go to Graceland and Sun Studio''s. This is your Tour, but here are some suggestions.

*The Arcade Restaurant, where Elvis had a special booth.
*Graceland and new "Elvis's Memphis, " entertainment center. For true fans, I recommend you spend a day there on your own.
*Tupelo, tour the 2 room home where Elvis was born as well as the church he grew up in, Johnnie's Drive Inn, The Hardware Store where Elvis bought his first guitar.
*Tour the Presley's apt. Lauderdale Courts
*Sun Recording Studio's-Where Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Oberson, Johnny Cash, other's have recorded there.
*Stax Recording Studio and Museum
*The Rock and Soul Museum
*The Blue's Hall of Fame
*Itinerary/Tour so many sites to see plus drive time it simply takes 12 hours but this is a comfortable ride much like an easy family holiday or vacation. We stop anytime and anywhere you want, this is your private personal tou

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 12 hours

I am always flexible as long as another tour does not interfere. Many times people will want to go to Graceland for instance for only a couple of hours. I have taken people there that stayed most of a day. Your tour is designed to go where you want.

Transportation

A 2016 Mid-night Blue Dodge Caravan that seats up to 6 with room for luggage. Or for those that would prefer a car, I have a Toyota Prius that will hold 4 people with room for some luggage but 3 people would be more comfortable.
