Michelle was awesome gave a great commentary and history of Memphis landmarks. Communication with tour company was not great. I called and emailed the number they provided and was not able to reach anyone before the tour. I wanted to confirm a pick up time. Which my reservation said was required.I ended up calling viator directly and got and finally got an answer. Guide did picked us up on time. Only issues were parts of tour could not be assessed because of COVID restrictions. (Ie viewing ducks at the Peabody) it was good we saw them the day before on our own since we didn’t find out until on the shuttle that it would not be included. We did stop later just to look around the lobby and did see them in the fountain. Sun records was great. The paddle boat was Low key and relaxing , all else went well and the day was a fun experience.

A Perfect Day in Memphis
Patricia_M

We loved it all. We toured downtown Memphis and Sam, our tour guide, was excellent. He was friendly and full of information. He pointed out great restaurants, and even went the extra mile to get us to our end destination. We also went on the riverboat, which was relaxing and run. Our favorite part of the tour was Sun Studios, a great piece of music history. Thanks Sam, for a perfect day in Memphis!!

One of the best city type tours we have been on. It was all made possible by our fantastic tour guide Sam. He was very informative, engaging and personable. We would highly recommend this tour and be sure to request Sam as your guide.

Aidan and G-Ma’s Memphis Experience

, Oct 2021
Michelle, our Tour Guide, was phenomenal. It was refreshing to be the student. I am a teacher. My grand prince, Aidan and I came to Memphis to enjoy our Fall Break. We attended the Memphis Grizzlies game on Monday. Our tour was the “icing” on the cake. Michelle presented the city, while highlighting its attributes. I will definitely recommend to everyone that will listen how fulfilling this experience was.

We had such a great time! Our family booked the city tour, Sun Studio Tour and the Mississippi River Boat Tour. The tour guide was punctual and very knowledgeable. His sense of humor also made our tour enjoyable.
