We enjoyed the tour, but felt it could have been a half hour shorter. But it really was informative and interesting. The tour of Sun studios was amazing! So neat to go back in time and stand where some of the greats stood and recorded some of their biggest hits! On the down side, we felt it was a bit over priced.

We had good laughs and that nice guy with his guitar and a hat (cant remember the name) even made us sing along sometimes. The bathroom break between the two parts of the tour came in handy, too. Studio Tour was pretty packed with people, not too goid a feeling in these times. However, the guide was very knowlegable and transporter his love of music perfectly.

Our singer was Indiana and she was awesome. Got the whole bus singing, and I’m not one to sing. She was very engaging and informative and made the tour a blast! Wish i had the drivers name because she was pretty cool and could use a shoutout. Keep up the great work guys!
