John G. did exactly what we wanted him to do. We did the civil rights museum and Graceland on our own and he showed us some other places that we would not have been able to see. We started at the Arcade Restaurant and sat in Elvis' booth. Then to Sun Studio. That was really fabulous. From there we drove around the city and had lunch at Gus' which was very good. Along the way he filled us in on local material and information and we were very pleased . We Highly recommend for tours of Memphis.

What a pleasant day we spent with John. He is a very informed and intelligent tour guide. We enjoyed our interaction with John and all of the sites that he's showed us were interesting and valuable to the Memphis way of life. I highly recommend John to take you to the Memphis highlights and to show you the things that make Memphis a wonderful city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. and Mrs. Sink were such wonderful people, interested in so many things and honestly a very nice couple. We had fun and saw some sites and I truly hope they come back. People such as them is why I love being a Tour Guide.

excellent tour. John was very knowledgeable and did a first rate job as our guide. He was able to give history on all all the buildings and sites we saw as well as very good details on the musical personalities in Memphis history. Highly recommend him as the best for Memphis and will use him again on future trips.

A Southern Gentleman, John made us feel very welcomed. A fun-filled three days followed; his selections very perfect for all us and his stories about Memphis put many things in perspective for us. To all we say that we recommend him highly.

Well day two with John as our guide proved to be even better than day 1! His suggestions for things to see and places to stop added so much to our experience. The lunch stops were especially good and not only had great food but great stories as well. The trip to Tupelo and the birthplace of Elvis before Graceland completed the story. Thanks John !

Tour entirely disappointing. Guide did not give us any information. He was more of a driver... also invited himself for lunch with us. He did not give any history, offer any suggestions for stops ... and his hygiene needed attention. We would definitely not recommend him to anyone visiting Memphis. We have had private tours in the past that were great. I would rate this day a "1".

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ms. Coffee, I am so sorry the tour disappointed you. At times I catch myself talking too much, I'm very sorry you feel I did not speak enough. With Tours By Locals, the guide never leaves you. At any restaurant, as The Arcade, my customer's will sit at Elvis's booth and I sit at the bar and I do remember your husband telling the waitress 5 people, any problems I can address. Your husband tipped me and thanked me, I hope their was some satisfaction. Constructive criticism is always welcome and utilized.

John is a consummate professional. We are very impressed with his ability to explain to us the levels of interest that we could have it any given site. What I mean by that is he gave us an honest appraisal of any particular venue, i.e. worth a drive-by to being worth an investment of our time. Once he ascertained our specific interests, he was able to suggest sites that we did not know about, i.e. Elvis's families first apartment or 1st home purchase prior to Graceland. He knows his city. Great tour!

John was a wonderful guide and I could not recommend him more. He picked us up and started our day by taking us to Tupelo to the birthplace of Elvis. Then we returned to Memphis for touring there. I had a long list of places we wanted to see and he made sure we got to all of them, plus some. We visited during Elvis Week, so places were very busy. Sun Studio had been sold out when we checked and he was able to call ahead the day of our tour and have tickets waiting. Very enjoyable day with John!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much and it's people like you that make me love my job I also had a great time. Thank you very much

An excellent experience. John was accommodating, flexible, personable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the day we spent with him. We couldn't do all we accomplished by ourselves. We got a great feel of Memphis. We will recommend John to our friends.

Tour: #263749, The Clarksdale Miss. Blue's Tour., Memphis, Tennessee, United States    view tour
Date: Oct 29/16

John's excellent 12 hour tour was geared to our interests including visiting parts of Memphis not on the regular tourist circuit and more extensive time visiting Tupelo (Elvis Presley's birth town), Clarksdale and the Crossroads (famous in blues folklore) and the Mississippi Delta. John has lived his life in the area and provided excellent commentary and anecdotes. An excellent tour & good value given the time spent with John in his well presented vehicle.John's flexible approach suited our needs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The Well's and I really had a great time. From sitting in an Assembly of God Sunday morning sermon at Elvi's church he went to as a child, to listening to some authentic Blue's in Clarksdale, we all had a great time and ai especially enjoyed the Wells.
