Our tour guide Brandon was amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city of Memphis as the history of its music. He shaped our tour to match our interests and was very entertaining as well as informative. He loves Memphis and loves sharing his passion with the people who take his tours. We have taken a lot of city tours over the years and this is one of the few that we will remember.

This tour was so informative. Brandon is an amazing tour guide! and fun to learn from about Memphis. He is so knowledgeable, making it comfortable every step of the way. We saw places we would have never seen without this tour outside of Graceland, etc. I would definitely do another tour with this company. It is clear they care about their clients and offer many variations and topics.

Not to be missed tour of Memphis. Brandon is very knowledgable and engaging, telling the real story of Memphis during the tour. Brandon brings the beginnings of Rock ‘n’ Roll to life and gives you a locals knowledge of Memphis. I couldn’t recommend this more to anyone.

RandyCaton

Brandon knows stuff. The guy is so informed about the history of Memphis and surrounds that he had us on the edges of our seats as we zigged and zagged around Memphis. White city politics and first Black millionaire in Tennessee to this and that about music and Elvis’ life in the city. He catered our tour to our interests in history. He took time the day before the tour to get to know us and get a “feel” for how to put the tour together. The comfortable car’s AC was superb in the 93 degree day. We started out the day thinking that this would be our only ever trip to Memphis but we are already planning when we’ll be able to return for Brandon Part 2!! There’s so much more to see, experience and learn about this wonderful city!! Meteor Tours will NOT disappoint!

Brandon is super knowledgeable and a very engaging guide. He was recommended to us by a friend in Memphis. We are so glad we took the tour. It is a great to see all the historic sites you do not get at any of the regular tourist sites. The kids really liked all the information and being able to see actual places, houses and historic sites. From the history of Memphis to Rock and Roll you will get everything you need. The kids said it was the best part of their trip to Memphis. The city is lucky to have him. Perfect guide.
