Highlights

Jump into the music, flavours, and history of Memphis!

Your tour begins at the heartbeat of Memphis’s origin story: The Mississippi River. Like cities the world over, the history of Memphis is one best understood by knowing the lay of the land, the geography which shaped it. As you walk through the city, your guide will explain how the city’s features have defined and shaped the institutions and culture of Memphis.

Visit historic Beale Street - where nightclubs, pawnshops, restaurants, and theatres have been playing the blues for over a century. Learn about the street’s history dating back to the mid-19th century, where Black commerce thrived in spite of the odds. Hear tales of Ida B Wells, 'Beale Street Blues', B.B. King, and Dr King.

Then, enter into the heart of the American story at the National Center for Civil Rights Museum, where your guide will take you on an hour tour. See the Lorraine Motel - now part of the museum - where Dr King was assassinated in 1968.
