To walk where Elvis & family walked and see his final resting place was very much worth the $36 for the tour. Never really was a big fan but after the tour I'm impressed. The only problem was you start the tour with a shuttle ride across the street to Graceland, and then a self-guided tour via headphones was ingenious. However, they really do let too many people into the house at one time and by the time you get to a section, the audio tour has moved onto another area. No flash photography in the house because "it will deteriorate the fabrics over time"? It's been 35 years and it all still looks pretty decent. Not sure why more of the house isn't open for tours and it's not really very handicap accessible as it does go to the downstairs of the house & then back up & outside. Very impressed that they keep the swimming pool clean & open, not covered. The Meditation Garden is peaceful, quiet & very moving. I would definately recommend it to fans & non-fans alike. After your done with the actual home, they shuttle you back across the street to a couple exhibits that conveniently end in a gift shop, then you walk across the parking lot to the jets & finally drive around the corner to another mini-strip mall for two final exhibits that also end in gift shops.
