Description:

Discover why Memphis is known as a history buff's heaven on a one-of-a-kind walking tour through the city's historic downtown. Guided by a knowledgeable local guide, unfold the Bluff City's unique music scene and rich history from Davy Crockett to Elvis Presley.

The tour begins on the old cobblestone steamboat landing—the only usable stone-paved riverfront landing in the United States. Explore the once-busy port that has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, and stop at the Confederate Park overlooking the Mississippi River waterfront. Along the way, your guide describes the unique Peabody Duck March and significant Civil War sites such as the Battle of Memphis and Forrest's Raid.

Make your way towards the infamous Beale Street and hear stories of rowdy gamblers, gangsters, and brothels that ran wild during the Prohibition era. Beale Street is considered a musical hotspot for rock 'n' roll and soul lovers, and has been home to some of America's most iconic musical artists such as Elvis Presley and B.B. King.

Pass the striking Civic Center fountains and learn about the historic and verdant Memphis Court Square. At the end of the tour, enjoy panoramic rooftop views where the city's rich culture and musical history can be seen at every corner.
