Memphis Music Tour Day, 8:30AM to 5:30 PM – You don’t want to miss this! Buses will pick us all up at 8:30AM and cruise us over to Elvis’ Graceland. There we will take the Graceland Platinum Tour & Airplanes Tour. This includes:

• A multimedia ipad tour of Graceland mansion and grounds
• Graceland Archives Experience
• Self-guided tour of Elvis’ two custom airplanes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II
• Self-guided tour of Elvis’ automobile museum, including his famous pink Cadillac

The average tour time 3-3.5 hours (more details can be found at graceland.com)

We will then board the buses and have a box lunch on the way downtown for the Memphis Mojo Tour. These tours have been classified as rolling concerts, so you’ll need your instrument (don’t worry, they’ve got you covered) and a camera to capture the good times. A Beale Street professional musician will personally give you one of the more unique and entertaining views of our great city. The Home of the Blues comes alive on this city tour. The musicians play and sing selections from the city's rich musical heritage, while entertaining you with comedy, history, and behind-the-scenes stories of your favorite Memphis personalities.

Along the way, you will see:

• Beale Street
• Stax Studio
• The Lorraine Motel
• Cotton Row
• Peabody Hotel
• Overton Park
• Historic Central Gardens
• St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital
• Early homes of Elvis, B. B. King, and Johnny Cash
• Sun Studio (an inside tour of the “birthplace of rock ‘n roll and original recording studio of Rock, country music, and rockabilly artists such as Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Roy Orbison, and others)


We will then head back to the hotel in time for the catered Memphis style Corky’s BBQ dinner (optional but HIGHLY recommended).
