Real nice job by Graham in narrating (and performing) during the tour. The 45 minutes or so were both enjoyable and interesting. Worth the price of admission.

Wow....what a tour!! Lana was the best. She has such an appreciation for the music history that is there and could make you feel as if the musicians were right there with you.

First time at Sun Studios and had a ball! (I LOVE recording studios). Graham Winchester gave such a stellar tour and made me chuckle with the great special effects. ;) ;) Make this a stop on your trip to Memphis and you won't regret it.

A fantastic place to visit. Guide very knowledgable and amusing. Music and photos take you back in time especially if you can go back to the 50’s. I would recommend to all ages it’s where all music started.

I also believe there is a shuttle that goes to Sun Studios from Graceland but we also used Lyft all over Memphis with great success. It's usually better to buy tickets online but we did not at Sun and it wasn't really a... More
