Although I did enjoy the tour and the guide seemed informative it was hard to concentrate and take everything in that he was saying as we had a hard time looking at him talking as he had white saliva in both corners of his mouth the whole time. If not for that I may have given it an extra rating and suggest someone with a big voice should always be giving the tour to be able to hear over the music. Sorry but it's honest feedback.

What You'll Get

After meeting at the ticket podium at BB King Blues Club and meeting your guide at 11:45am, you'll begin a 45-minute guided tour of the famous Beale Street in downtown Memphis. Known as one of Americas most Iconic streets. Beale Street is steeped in colorful history. From the early days of sin and vice to its heyday as the center of the city's vibrant African-American culture and the struggle for civil rights, you'll explore the stories behind the legends and the musicians, gangsters, crooks and heroes who helped make Beale Street the 'Home of the Blues.'

On this tour, you'll get a great overview of this vibrant street and see sites including A. Schwab's old fashioned general store and soda fountain founded in 1876 (the city's oldest business), Handy Park, where you can hear the sounds of Memphis, and the original Lansky Bros. Clothing store, the "Clothier to the King," where the young Elvis Presley adopted his signature style. You will also see the historic Gallina Building and old Saloon Row, including one of the most notorious early 20th century whiskey dens known as "The Castle of Missing Men."

The tour will end around 12:30pm at BB King Blues Club.
