Disappointing.
Lenae_W

The guide was friendly and knowledgeable but the tour was just not good. We did not get a good overview of Memphis and didn’t even see everything we thought we would. Far too much time was spent on things like which corporation donated to St Jude’s and mayoral progress (or lack thereof) and less time on the deep and diverse history of this interesting city.

Thanks for you feedback. We will discuss your concerns with that particular guide.

Bad sound system

You need a better sound system, we could not hear the driver. I was disappointed in the one little corner of Beale street that we got to see as I expected to see more of it.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for your feedback we will definitely check the sound system and why you were only able to see a small corner of Beale street.
