“An Unexpected Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Had toured Graceland earlier in the day and was just driving into downtown Memphis to see what there was to see when we spotted the Sun Records Studio. We knew that there was a tour available but it was zero on our priority list, but since we were there we stopped to see what they had to offer.

I'm Glad we did! It's a small space packed with priceless '50s rock memorabiia and the tour guide's enthusiasm was infectious. A nice 'Coda' for the end of the day's Elvis experience.

Amazing! We had the best tour guide ever. Well worth the trip to Memphis just go to here! If you like the music you will love it. Even if you don't like the music you can appreciate the history.

“Small and Mighty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

The tour guide was fantastic! The upstairs was phenominal and going into where Elvis, Johnny Cash, and countless others have recorded songs was breath taking. Don't miss this!
