  • 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!!!
  • Don was a great guide! He really knew his Studio B 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!
  • Being a fan of Elvis it was really cool to see where he recorded so many of his hits. As well as all of the other great artists that have recorded there too.
  • 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.
