If you are interesting in seeing the inside of a recording studio or are an Elvis fan, this is a must stop for you. The studio is as it was when Elvis used it. So everything is dated. There are no other studios open to the public however, so this is your chance to see a recording studio. A quick... More

Seeing where and how the music for countless stars and songs were made sent a chill up my wife's spine. The fact that it is still used after all these years is a testiment to how well it was desinged.

It was too good. Felt so authentic. I had goosebumps when they played the outtakes of Elvis recordings there. Cant go to the Music City without stopping here.

There is a magical moment when you go into the studio and they play the original recording of 'Are you lonesome tonight', in the exact same way that it was recorded (I don't want to spoil it for anyone), and it just sends shivers up your spine! It is a chilling moment and you genuinely feel like you're there. If... More

this place just proves that big things come in small packages! history is alive and well in this studio where so many country greats recorded over the years. the tour sheds light on many stories of the stars who spent so much time within these walls and where so many unforgettable songs were recorded. a MUST SEE when you are...

This was the most frustrating part of our trip to Nashville. Started out that the bus, which could accommodate a wheelchair, was broke and the substitute vehicle could not. We're told we could meet there, it was only a mile. As I us a scooter we thought no biggy, we'd huff it. The agent said she would let the guide... More

Really enjoyed this tour. It was short but our guide gave us so much history I was taken back to when I was a kid listening to some of my favorite artists.

We loved this tour - the guide was so informed and friendly and to be in the Studio where so many famous performers recorded, including Elvis Presley, took our breath away. The studio is still used once in a while, but the equipment there is the same as it was so many years ago. Very cool!

This can only be toured as an add-on to the Country Music Hall of Fame, but is well worth it. Loved seeing the piano and equipment that so many legendary stars, including Elvis, used. Very informative tour guide who also provided tour information all the way to and from the museum--a tour within a tour.

This was one of the best parts of our vacation. Brenda the tour guide was great. She was so informative. It is amazing to be in the actual studio that produced 1000 hits. The stories about the artists were so interesting.
