“It's quite pricey but there's a full days worth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I doubt that my review will hang round for long but this is a must see in Memphis, and probably why most people will go, but a couple of points to make.

I have seen plenty of reviews that say that the neighbourhood is terrible - we didn't see any sign of this and there are plenty of people about..

The parking is steep at $10, but apparently the nearby strip malls are free but there are reviews saying their car was broken into, so maybe the fee is worth paying, OR, if you've downtown, get the Sun Studio shuttle from the Stax Museum or other drop off and that's free!

So, for the exhibits, there's plenty of them and you can easily spend a day here. So it probably does justify its price.

The tour of the house is relatively short, but we weren't rushed through and this does seem to give an idea of the actual person, then there are other exhibits just to drive in to you how amazingly successful he was.

Take your time and enjoy it, we are far from Elvis nuts but we were entertained all day and so many souvenir shops to look round - I love them! If you have a spare $2,000 maybe you could buy your own jumpsuit...

“Elvis still lives!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

What a awesome tour, yeah, its commercial but spectacular. It's history, it's the Presley history and Memphis history. I'm not a true Elvis fan, but I am impressed with the tour, the staff and the audio that accompanies you as you walk through Graceland. Take your time and take plenty of photos - read all of the information. It's a national treasure. Hope to go back and redo the tour.

“Nice afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

The weather was perfect for a visit to Graceland. I really enjoyed the audio tour. The cars are definitely worth checking out. The biggest downside was the price. Parking is $10. But I found a coupon online for half off addmition or I would not have gone.

“Something to do once”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I am a Elvis fan and have been forever. This was the first time I had the time to visit. That said, I would not go back. It is something you should do once and that should be enough. The house is like a time capsule. If you remember the 60's you will see familiar decor. It is when you cross the street that it becomes a rip off. They charge $10 to park. If you stop at Graceland Crossing right next door you can save 10 bucks and walk a few feet to get in. You can also buy alot of the same souvenirs down on Beals Street for a lot less.
