“Rich in history-great guide”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

It's a small studio with a rich history. Virtually everyone from Elvis to Patsy Cline recorded here. The tour is short so you spend much of the time listening to recordings of some of the famous artists who called this studio home. If you are a history or country music buff you will love it. Probably not very interesting for kids and teens.

“Delightful little tour”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Debora was our guide and she was fantastic! A great story teller! While in Nashville I suggest doing this tour over anything else. You get so much more personal backstory and added information than you ever could just doing the self guided tours.

“Spine tingling...”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

The Studio B tour is available via the Country Music Hall of Fame and is an absolute 'must'. The legendary studio is still in regular use by musicians who revere the qualities of analogue recording. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and conveyed a real sense of the vitality and joy of the place. To stand in the small room by the piano where Elvis recorded some of his greatest songs - it's quite an experience!

“BEST PART OF MY HOLIDAY”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

What can I say? Didn't know what to expect but was so glad I visited. The tour guide was very welcoming, entertaining and informative. Even though he must have narrated this tour many, many times he made it sound like the first time. The history is just amazing. The best part for me was sitting in the recording studio and listening to Elvis sing 'Are you lonesome tonight' in the dark. I felt Elvis's presence here more than I felt at Graceland. I was very emotional and had goosebumps! I really can't recommend this enough!

“An awesome experience!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

This place was opened back up and it was as though time stood still. The facility was exactly as it had been decades ago - down to the stool that Elvis used to sit on in the dark as he recorded. Is a really neat place to visit.
