This was a great tour - well organized and planned out. We learned quite a bit and the musician Eric Roberts was amazing - we bought his CD. We loved the Sun Studio experience and it was just the right amount of time.....

Enjoyed the tour, and having a musician as a tour guide makes so much sense in Memphis. The stop at Sun Records really was the highlight, so I highly recommend adding on the extended tour option. That said, I do feel like the history of...More
