I would recommend this tour to get the lay of the land and which sites to further investigate on your own. Our tour guide gave a very informative talk at the Lorraine Hotel about the events of the assignation of Dr. Martin Luther King which I found very moving. The only information I would have liked to have from the guide would had been the hours of the museums that were pointed out on the tour. We went back the following day to the Civil Rights museum only to find it was closed that day of the week.
I would recommend this tour on your first day in Memphis. Reviews 4. Our tour guide Larry was full of knowledge d funny, the food was decent. We had a nice time! This is a tour that should be done at the beginning of your stay.
