Explore Memphis with a private tour guide


This tour is a great introduction for those who have never visited Memphis before but would like to see Memphis and what is has to offer. From Beale St. to Graceland to Victorian Village where there are Mansion's built in the 1800's, A drive by the home Elvis lived in before Graceland and the apartment the Presley's lived in Lauderdale Courts. The Pink Palace Museum was a home being built by grocery Magnate, Clarence Saunder's. He is attributed to building the first modern grocery store, The Piggly Wiggly but his fortune and home was lost in an epic stock market battle in the 1920's. The city acquired the home and is now a museum as well as 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

John was punctual, knowledgable and very helpful during our day in Memphis. One of our group of 4 had to go back to our hotel as she felt unwell with a bad cold and this was no problem for John. He ensured the rest of us were ensconced in a blues museum and then went back to our hotel. Earlier in the day also, my husband was looking for something for his mobile phone - again no problem and John took us to an appropriate store. Highlight of our day was Sun Studios & John go us there for a great tour
