Our guide was excellent. Unfortunately, it was drizzling rain, and with the COVID restrictions, we didn't see or do much. We got out of the bus at Victorian Village to look at the outside of a house and got out at the Lorraine Hotel. We didn't even go by the Orpheum Theater, Gibson Guitar Factory (which I think no longer exists), or historic Cotton Row, nor did we go into the Peabody Hotel or Lansky Brothers. We did have lunch at Central BBQ, which was good. I'm not sure I would recommend this tour as long as COVID restrictions are in place.

Very nice tour, the duck walk was kind of silly but the hotel is beautiful Would prefer to spend time in a comfortable lobby chair with a nice mimosa Lunch was a very good pork sandwich, it’s just preference but I prefer my coleslaw sweet The homemade chips are good if you doctor them up with the seasoning they have on the table The museum is excellent

Enjoyed everything on trip! Larry the bus driver was knowledgable about Memphis Tn. Along with his humor! I would myself Enjoy also a longer bus ride of Memphis along with more history telling, if they would have that available as well!
