This was an excellent and time worthy tour. Sam picked our group in the hotel. He’s courteous and gave us lots on city history.He’s very funny and talked by the time he stepped on the bus through the end of the tour.

We had a great hour of Memphis. Sam is a great guide! He is very knowledgeable and leads a fun tour. We added the riverboat cruise and Sun Studios, both were very amazing.
Lots of Memphis History
, Jul 2021
So….we did 3 tours. City, Riverboat & Sun Studio. Being a semi-pro musician LOVED Sun studio. So much history there. Sam was a super excellent tour guide on the City Tour. Friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable, on time and really appreciated him quieting some passengers down (politely of course) from never ending talking while he’s explaining. Now the Riverboat, kind of disappointed. First off temp on the 24th felt like 109. Pretty darn hot on any of the decks. No fans anywhere on the boat.. Really? It’s Memphis, in the summer. It’d be one thing if you were on a boat that has some speed but going a few miles an hour was brutal. The walk down the ridiculous ramp was ok. Going back up…how about some clean all the leaves, sticks, pop cans off the ramp.
Fun and informative

Awesome tour and tour guide!

Sam was our tour guide. That man is amazing!! He's funny, friendly, and definitely knows his stuff. He made the tour exciting and every bit of worth while. We'll return and request him.
Exceeded all Expectations!

We were in town for a wedding and several of my family members and I signed up for this tour. Let me just say that it exceeded all expectations. Sam was amazing! He really made the tour so fun and was incredibly knowledgeable. We learned so much about the city and laughed the whole time during the tour. Thank you for an incredible experience!
