I was unable to go as I am visiting Memphis from Arizona and they said mobile tickets were not accepted..I then requested to cancel and was told I would get no refund and after checking my account they have charged 3 tickets.. I am disgusted and want all money refunded immediately..

We were not kindly greeted upon arrival; the girl at the desk in fact was disappointing. We thought our tour began at 10am; so we arrived right at 10am; they would not unlock the doors or take us on our tour a minute before 1030am (we were the only three in the studio) and they greeted us with "put your mask on and cover your nose" before "good morning, how are you and thank you for coming." -- Sorry, but we are southern-grace conscientious and that did not sit well... and then they work for tips. The tour was 'okay.' Elvis and the others deserve better representation. I'd skip this one and read about it online; you'd probably enjoy it more - and avoid the rude little girl at the desk. There is a good book called "manners 101" -- check it out honey.

My wife and I toured the Studio and had a wonderful time. There is a very comfortable mix of time left alone to view the exhibits on your own, and time when the Guide spoke and taught the group about the history and details of the studio since its inception.

Growing up as a teenager I knew all the lyrics of all the songs that came out of Sun Records. Such a thrill to visit where it all happened.
