Our tour guide was WONDERFUL. They were understaffed, but it did not effect our guide's mood at all. He was informative, funny, and entertaining. He also gave time to get off the bus for photos before moving on, or you could tell him you would or would not need to be picked up from a stop. He was actually a highlight of our entire trip. I wish I remembered his name, but it was on August 13, so hopefully this review will reach him. Thank you for a memorable experience!

Very informative..our driver knew do much about Memphis. We didnt realize that the bus takes you to sights and then you can get out and visit while the bus waits. Usually you need to wait for the next bus. We got to see the Peabody Ducks, the new Bass Pro shop, Beale street...stop in at BB Kings for good food and great music, and then on to Graceland. Great way to safely see Memphis.

What a great tour, we got to see all the great hot spots and our tour guide gave us time at each spot to get out and take pics. Had such a great time, they picked us up from our hotel, they were so accomodating they were so great. Would go again!!!!!
