We did 2 back to back walking tours and they were top notch. Great guide, perfectly structured itineraries (although it's tough to mess up a Beale Street itinerary!). Good info without the typical kitsch.

We had the best time....Mike was just Awsome, he made my mom feel very special and catered to her mobility issues. Larry out bus driver and tour docent was fantastic, he helped me with my mom and was very accommodating with her walker.

We echo other reviews of tours led by Mike, the rain whisperer. His knowledge of Memphis and his obvious love of the city gave my wife and me a unique insight into both the present and history of Memphis. We recommend the tour.

We did the #ElvisWeek bus tour with Gary earlier today & had the most wonderful time. He was kind and friendly, a good story-teller, and sang to our number one Elvis fan. Thanks for the memories and laughs Gary!
