The Staff that worked here, were all very enthusiastic about music and the history of Memphis recording studio. The archives upstairs were well preserved and awe inspiring. It was not only about Elvis but other historical musicians as well. There is a cafe downstairs and...More
A small and compact building but steeped in music history. Graham, the guide's use of words, music, interactive light shows (OK a bit exaggerated) were excellent. He was able to bring to life the history of the venue with a love and passion for his...More
My husband is a musician and really wanted to see Sun studios. It was not a disappointment. While quite small, it is very interesting to see the exact place that Elvis recorded as well as many others including Ike Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl...More
I simply can't recommend this tour highly enough. We were extremely lucky to have Graham on the day and it was his passion, knowledge and infectious love of its history and it's music that made it such a special experience. To be in the very...More

Even if you don’t do a tour, walking into the cafe of Sun Studios is a pretty cool, free experience. The memorabilia on the walls is really a walk into history and it’s just a fun place to go... even if you just have a...More
When visiting Memphis, this is a must.
To be honest, I enjoyed this tour more then the Graceland tour.
Could be because the tourguide, Graham, was awesome. :-)
The music history lesson you get is one of the best, informative and animated I had.

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 problem. Tours are every half hour and the cafe where we waited was pretty cool. You'll be there about an hour. Enjoy your visit, we did.

There is but it's hard to find. There is a really narrow drive right next to the studio and there is parking behind. Also some options on the street. We cheated and parked in the Dominos parking lot across the street. :)

I don’t see a problem with going over to sun studios early so that you can purchase your tickets for a later tour. But honestly my mom and I just walked up when we wanted to go and they sold us tickets for the next tour which was just a short 15 mins away. This waiting period allowed me to get a cold drink to cool down after the journey.
