John G.

Memphis, TN, United States

I have lived in Memphis for over 40 years and know the area very well.

I can take you around Memphis or the Miss. Delta to some truly authentic sites. In fact, I even met Elvis at Graceland in 1969.
I have a picture we took and would love to tell you about our conversation. I have many stories of him and others at that time he was alive.

Growing up near Clarksdale Miss. where many of the original Blues artists are from, I have knowledge that many do not, yet almost every time I go back, I learn something new.

Many of the old sites you will feel as I do, as if your watching a movie, you'll see and hear things you won't see anywhere else. The Blue's Museum in Clarksdale Miss, and the restaurants there are not to be missed.

All my tours include my service as your private guide and transportation to the sites, whether in Memphis or down to Mississippi. At your discretion, we may even end up in a club listening to live authentic blues. My tours do not include dining costs, which allows you the freedom to go where you want and not be limited at a restaurant's menu. I promise you will enjoy yourself and I hope you will tell your friends and relatives about your experience and come back again because there is so much to see here.

A Recent Review of this guide

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.
