Escorted Tours of Memphis

Soak up the sounds of the music city of Memphis – Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll in the music city of Memphis.

The bustling city on the bank of the Big Muddy has produced some of the world’s most famous, most successful and most loved artists, from Elvis Presley to Jonny Cash and Isaac Hayes. Forever linked with the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Memphis boasts a musical heritage to match any city in the world.

Pay homage to the King at his ostentatious Graceland mansion. His home reveals some fascinating facts, such as his penchant for using different lighting to record different genres. Visiting the house is on the 'bucket list' of every true Elvis fan, and it's a poignant experience because Elvis is also buried in the grounds.

Head to the legendary Sun Studio, where in 1951 ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ was born with the recording of ‘Rocket 88’, and history changed forever three years later with Elvis’ rendition and ‘live’ recording of Arthur Crudup’s ‘That’s Alright, Mama’.

Soak up the atmosphere of colourful Beale Street with its endless choice of restaurants and bars, many of which offer live music, or perhaps sample pork ribs (smothered in smoky Deep South sauce) – the city is known as the ‘Barbecue Capital of America’.

Filled with music, the streets of Memphis are filled with history too. Follow the progress of Martin Luther King through to his assassination at the Lorraine Motel, Memphis. Visit the National Civil Rights Museum, where the history of the struggle to end segregation is also very well documented.
