Wow! What a great tour of Nashville's ONLY studio! Of course, it was ELVIS...nearly every one of his hits are shot at Studio B. Over 35,000 songs were recorded here, and 1,000 became hits! Elvis, Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins, Jim Reeves, Everly Bros., Roy Orbison, etc. It is SMALL but amazing! We had an absolutely brilliant tour with a great... More

Just like standing on the circle at GOO, or being on stage at Ryman, this too will give you that feeling and a tear in your eye. Do the tour.

If you have grown up loving Elvis, Dolly, Charlie Pride to name just a few this is an experience you don't want to leave Nashville without visiting! It truly is hallowed ground of where these artists created the sounds we have heard for years on the radio. You must book your visit through the Country Music Hall of Fame, usually... More

We had a very good tour guide who made this visit one of the highlights of our holiday.We listened to music of various artists who had recorded there,then had a chance to take photos sitting at the piano Elvis had used and standing on the Sweet spot where the acoustics were meant to be best.

Jeff did a great job. He loves his music and has lots of information for the music lover to enjoy. He gives you 2 hours worth of information in 1 and at the end of the tour it was well worth it. The stories about the artists, the instruments, the studio itself are all so interesting. He intertwines music clips... More

We added this tour to our Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum ticket. It was so worth the extra $10 to get a bus ride over to the studio and hear the history of it. When you sit down in the room where Elvis recorded so many of his hits and hear the stories of the instruments, lighting, etc....it... More

I booked this as an ad on with admission to the Country Music Hall of Fame. The tour guide meets you there, and you are driven to Studio B. Tour guide Jeff obviously had a reverence for music and for the studio, which he passed along to the group. He played various recordings including a gospel selection by Elvis that... More

My friends and I visited RCA Studio B as part of the Country Music Hall of Fame tour. We got to sit at the same piano where Elvis Presley played and recorded. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend visiting this studio.
