The studio itself is rather small. It's recording equipment is vintage. What makes the tour are the tales of Floyd Kramer, Roy Obison, Dolly, Elvis, more Elvis and even more Elvis.

Only takes a short time to tour, but worth it. Some of the all time greats have recorded here, and it is interesting to hear the history of the studio,

This was probably one of the high lights of my trip to Nashville.It has an amazing history in the music industry. It's the place where many of the most well known artists in music recorded.

Did this tour with Anita who was great. Seeing this studio was history music was made was absolutely amazing. Dimming the lights just as Elvis did in the studio made me close my eyes and imagine was there listening to him record. Very cool experience and highly recommend!

We visited with my son's 7th & 8th grade field trip and I left amazed! Our tour guide Abigail was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job telling stories of all the artists.
