A wonderful tour with great information, terrific music, and terrific sites. Indiana, our guide, sang beautifully and imparted information about the blues, gospel, soul, and rock 'n roll music. Excellent tour! I highly recommend

Our guide was Indiana. She has a wonderful voice so her singing and storytelling were very entertaining. 90 minutes went by quickl, maybe next time we'll take a longer tour.

If you are a part of the boomer generation or just love learning about music history, you will enjoy the Stax Museum. I even danced in the Dance exhibit!!

Very nice time. Our driver was excellent and our singing / tour guide was very fun and informative. Would recommend it if you don't know Memphis.

I loved our tour guide. I forgot her name but she was amazing! Such a great voice and warm personality.
