Private tour guide John

John G.

Memphis, TN, United States

I have lived in Memphis for over 37 years and grew up in this area, the Mississippi Delta, I know it 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 1968. I have a picture we took and would love to tell you about our conversation. I know 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.

John is a lovely guide! He responded to my multiple inquiries quickly and thoughtfully, coming up with suggestions and recommendations that enhanced our short stay in Memphis! Sun Studios Rock and Soul Museum ,Metal Museum! Our breakfast at Elvis' favorite diner was a hoot! Thank you John for sharing your City with us!
