Be ready in your hotel lobby bright and early to begin your full-day trip to Memphis. The comfortable trip by air-conditioned coach takes approximately 4 hours to reach your destination. On arrival, you'll be presented with your VIP pass to Graceland on a souvenir lanyard. Explore with your guide over the course of 3 hours. You'll see the Elvis car museum, his burial site, and the two deluxe planes that were used for the King's touring and personal travel. Take some free time to purchase lunch or look around a bit further on your own. Your next stop is Sun Studios, the recording studio owned by Sam Phillips in downtown Memphis that played a large part in the founding of rock 'n' roll. During your 1-hour guided tour, you'll see what the recording process used to be like and hear stories of the studio's many legends, including Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, and Johnny Cash. Last, head for Beale Street for some free time to wander around, visit the Memphis Rock n Soul Museum, or get some famous Memphis barbecue. Visit the Peabody Hotel to see the famous Peabody ducks make their way down the red carpet and learn how this unusual tradition got started. Return to Nashville with drop-off at your hotel after dark.

Thank you taking a Memphis Day Trip tour with us! We’re glad that you enjoyed your time at Sun Records and Beale Street, but we’re sorry that you felt the tour was rushed. We invite you to visit with us on another tour soon!
