Today I participated in the Midtown Run with Memphis Running Tours. The meeting location was very easy to find and John, my guide, was right on time. According to my GPS tracker, the run was just over 4 miles, which was the perfect distance for me. John ran at my pace and made me feel very comfortable. Since the temperature... More

Myself and a friend purchased two Groupons for four people total. John was very helpful and available when scheduling the tour (I definitely recommend a morning slot as it gets so hot so quickly and it was nice to beat the heat!) My group and I decided on the Midtown run because we had not been to that part of... More

My husband and I took the tour of downtown Memphis and loved it! We've been to Memphis multiple times, but there were so many places and things we learned about on the tour. Our guide, John, set a good pace for me - I haven't run in a long time - and the tour was just over 4 miles, with... More

I planned a trip to New Orleans, and decided to stop in Memphis on the way. I found a groupon so booked it, because it seemed like something different. I now want to do this in every place I visit! What I liked most was seeing everything so early in the morning, before it's overcome with tourists. The tour guide,... More

My girlfriend and I booked the Midtown Hipster Tour through Memphis Running Tours, hoping to see a side of Memphis that was apart from the normal touristy downtown sights. Our guide, John, met us at a local Cafe which was not far from his own home, so he was very knowledgeable about the area. We are training for a race... More

I was really excited about this run. I love to run in cities that i go visit, and I love history. So this tour sounded like the thing for me. The leader was knowledgable, but I am still trying to justify the price. I also collect tee shirts from local running stores that I visit. They were out of tee... More

Chuvok, I wanted to thank you for your feedback on the tour you went on in October. I just wanted to let you know that we do take this information seriously, and also that I'm back in Memphis (owner of the company) to manage the company after living in Dallas for the past three years. The T-shirts were not reordered,... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a Saturday morning brisk walk through midtown with Mel. He was really informative and not only told us a lot about the history of Memphis but also introduced us to some cool places in midtown, a fantastic area for food & drinks! Highly recommended!

We did the downtown loop. This was a faster paced walk instead of a run due to the amount of information that was being provided. This was perfect for us as my wife has a bad knee and we would have requested this style of tour anyway. There was so much information being provided on the tour that even at... More

So glad we booked this tours for our first morning in Memphis. Mel was full of information not in the guidebooks about the city and where to go and what do see and do...and eat! The recommendations he made for food and drinks were well used. Top trumps would be the Bar-B-Q shop and the pulled pork sandwich on Texas... More

I bought a tour from Living Social for a friend's birthday. We took our tour in September in the evening on a Friday night, and it was a blast (and it was pretty cool temperature-wise!). I moved here three years ago, and my friend has lived her all of her life. We learned so much about Memphis history and found... More
