“Graceland -so much nicer than we thought!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

At Graceland, we were surprised at how much more to it there is besides the mansion tour. When you first arrive, they give you a device to wear around your neck that allows you to walk at your own pace & when you want more information on anything , you just push the number corresponding to that room, or that vehicle,This way you dont have to be in a large crowd, unable to hear your guide, its a great system!!,The grounds are beautiful, the staff is very informative,, it took us about 3 hours to see all we wanted, which included the private plane & Elvis's car museum. The tour we chose was $36, but another tourist handed me a coupon at the last minute (thank you) for a buy one , get one free ticket!

“A must for Elvis fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Excellent experience. Well organized tour without being rushed. To see the mansion the King lived in and all the many exhibits of his influence on society is a must for an Elvis fan. Plan on a least a half day to take it all in. On site food is just fair but you can get a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich! The audio feature is a perfect touch during the tour. Very friendly and courteous staff.

A MUST, MUST see. Don't miss visiting Graceland if you are ever in Memphis. It's just amazing. Even if you are not a big Elvis fan you will still enjoy it.

“Just ignore the rude staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife was more excited about visiting Graceland than I was but I must admit it was very interesting and enjoyable, despite the staff. While we were there I saw two staff members smile the rest went through the motions of their jobs but it was painfully clear they would rather be somewhere else. They offered on additional info beyond the required and while not openly rude or discourteous they were far from helpful. We ignored the lack of enthusiasm and enjoyed the park anyway.
The place is quite expensive, $70 each to see everything + $10 parking. We chose to just view mansion and grounds and were satisfied. We enjoyed ourselves and were impressed with Elvis's achievements and his mansion. Worth the trip.

“Graceland Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Anyone who is an Elvis fan needs to visit Graceland. It's like a time capsule. It's been pretty much frozen in time since the days when Elvis lived there. Besides the house, some newer exhibits have been added. There's a garage of Elvis' cars. There's a walk through exhibit of some of Elvis' costumes, gold records, etc. that is very interesting. Of course, Elvis and his beloved mom and dad are buried at Graceland. Visitors will not be disappointed.
