This is a must see. A short shuttle ride from the Country Music Hall of Fame. Our hostess started as soon as we started the trip. She was so easy to listen to and prepared us for what we were to see. Fascinating history of an early recording studio and one that is sometimes used today. The music clips are... More

Visited the studio for the first time. Have heard about it for years. Located out on Music Row. Get tickets in combo with the Hall of Fame visit and ride a bus to the studio. The studio itself, built in the late 50's, is nothing special but what went on inside it is. A tour guide explains some of the... More

what a treat we had when we visited. We went mainly because of Elvis but my goodness the history is overwhelming. I have to say we have also visited sun studios but the visit to RCA was far superior to what we have ever seen. The feeling that you get when standing in the studio is sensational and we certainly...

I read about the Studio B tour before our trip to Nashville & had to convince the family it'd be worth our while. They later told me that they're glad I was persistent. We left from the Hall of Fame and Museum on a small bus for the short ride to the studio. Our tour guide, a tall & slim... More

My wife and I are not huge Elvis fans but found the tour outstanding as was our tour guide. Our tour guide was obviously a huge Elvis fan and he was able to get that enthusiasm to the whole group.

Holy cow what hallowed ground we stood on. Short trip from downtown on a bus you catch at the country music museum. Great tour and info. The music was great and to stand where Elvis stood was crazy! Loved it!
