We toured with Larry on May 3,2017. He was entertaining and very informative. The tour took us to many of the historic sites in downtown Memphis and stopped for lunch at Central Barbeque. Food was great. Ended up at Rock n Soul museum. Highly recommend.

This is a great value. We learned a ton of history about Memphis, had great BBQ, and enjoyed a nicely paced tour. A great kick off to our trip. Now we have an idea of all the sights we want to see.
