A MUST, MUST see. Don't miss visiting Graceland if you are ever in Memphis. It's just amazing. Even if you are not a big Elvis fan you will still enjoy it.

“Just ignore the rude staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife was more excited about visiting Graceland than I was but I must admit it was very interesting and enjoyable, despite the staff. While we were there I saw two staff members smile the rest went through the motions of their jobs but it was painfully clear they would rather be somewhere else. They offered on additional info beyond the required and while not openly rude or discourteous they were far from helpful. We ignored the lack of enthusiasm and enjoyed the park anyway.
The place is quite expensive, $70 each to see everything + $10 parking. We chose to just view mansion and grounds and were satisfied. We enjoyed ourselves and were impressed with Elvis's achievements and his mansion. Worth the trip.

“Graceland Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Anyone who is an Elvis fan needs to visit Graceland. It's like a time capsule. It's been pretty much frozen in time since the days when Elvis lived there. Besides the house, some newer exhibits have been added. There's a garage of Elvis' cars. There's a walk through exhibit of some of Elvis' costumes, gold records, etc. that is very interesting. Of course, Elvis and his beloved mom and dad are buried at Graceland. Visitors will not be disappointed.

“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I love Elvis but I had heard this was 'tacky' so didn't know what to expect. I travelled with my husband and friend ( not big Elvis fans) this tour was amazing. We did the platinum tour, were given headsets, put on a bus and taken to the house where we spent around an hour to two hours wandering the house and grounds including the memorial garden and his grave ( very emotional) after that we did the other parts of the tour seeing lots of other stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed this, it was well orchestrated, good value for money and a great day out for everyone.

“The King of Rock & Roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Amazing to visit Elvis' home. Beware, however, that the on-site staff is hostile. Not all of the people who come to Graceland are awful obnoxious tourists- some of us are tenderhearted fans that never thought we'd ever come to visit, but were somehow lucky to get there after years of working hard and saving. The employees in the house need MAJOR customer service training ASAP.
