  • I think the tour is a little expensive, but it's totally worth it. Our guide did a great job, he already told some facts about the Studio and Elvis while a shuttle bus took us there from the county music museum and provided a nice tour around the little studio. It's impressive to listen to some songs that where recorded at this exact place.
  • This tour departs from the Country Music Hall of Fame and is a short bus ride away. Our guide, Jeff, couldn't have been more enthusiastic and enamored with telling the stories of RCA studio B. Great tour and tour guide!
  • This is definitely a must-see for music / Elvis lovers!! The day before I visited Sun Studios in Memphis and loved it, but I think I loved this more!! Great guide, lots of information and some amazing, well kept history!!!
  • It was very neat to stand where Elvis stood to record a lot of his music, and our tour guide, Stephanie Layne, made it a super fun experience!
  • While visiting Nashville this is a must. The tour is full of great music facts and the studio is full of music history!!
