“Graceland Tour”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

The grounds and house were beautiful. The lines to enter are very organized. Did not like that the tours were all done by headset. It felt very disconnected - no exciting vibe when going through the house. Also, the employees at the house did not seem very approachable or knowledgeable.
Go to see the house, but don't expect much interaction.

“Visit to Elvisland”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Expected to be more impressed, but for the Elvis faithful is still hallowed ground, so hard to dump on it. For me the buildup far exceeded the final product. Was still interesting to see.

“Great stop even if you were not an Elvis fan!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Lots of exhibits reflecting the personal and professional life of Elvis Presley. You can step back in time to the 1970's and see how the King of Rock 'n Roll lived. The Platinum Tour is a great value since it includes admission to Graceland Mansion and several attractions.

“It was top of my bucket list and worth the wait”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Well, I finally made it and was not disappointed. I feel that the whole tour has been extremely well organised, respectfully and with sincerity. Yes, it's brash and gaudy in the house, but we are talking about the 60's and that's how stars showed off their wealth. Nothing new. A wonderful insight into the man, his way of life, his certain elegance, his charisma, his love of living and his huge respect for others, despite the events of his later days. The house has been organised tastefully, the mémorial garden is simple and sober , the memorabilia on show is extensive and fabulous to see. For an Elvis fan, an uplifting and sobering must see experience

“Great for Elvis fans and ETAs”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

For real devotees, this is great. For regular people, I'll point out that the tour is restricted to hallways. You can peek in the rooms, but that's about it. For wheelchair users, there's no access to the famous Jungle Room in the basement. There is access to the office out back, the trophy room full of, well, trophies, and jumpsuits, and half of the raquetball court, which has also been converted to a trophy/jumpsuit room. The 'Meditation Garden' featuring graves of Elvis and his family is also on the tour, and wheelchair accessible. If you love Elvis tribute artists (don't call 'em impersonators!), go during 'Elvis Week' in August.
