Our guide was very hard to understand. Two of our stops were very boring - Sun Studio was a souvenir stop and the Welcome Ctr didn't have anything to see but two statues and brochures.

Very nice tour of the city highlights. The bus driver James Thomas was especially humorous which made it fun too. We had pre paid online but still had to wait for others to pay to start the tour which was kind of annoying though.

You can take a cab anywhere else in the city and return for half of what they charge. It is NOT a tour but really only a shuttle do different destinations. Pick up and drop off times are a jokeMore

We enjoyed our tour. Our guide on the city tour was good. We had already spent time on Beale St so we thought the alloted time for lunch was a bit too long.. would have rather had more time at Graceland.

The driver gave a good tour, but parts of tour were very quick. We've had better tour guides recently. The bus was extremely noisy with rattles everywhere. It made hearing the driver very difficult. He apologized for the bus, though.More
