  • We took a private tour with Ms. Jackie of ATOP Memphis. This is a must-do! The five star reviews are all correct. The van was super-comfortable, and Ms. Jackie brought the history of the city alive...

  • Our tour guide Ms. Jackie deserves a standing ovation for the most entertaining yet informative tour we've ever been on. Ms. Jackie greeted us with open arms and pretty much hugged us with her...

  • We took a private tour with Ms. Jackie of ATOP Memphis. This is a must-do! The five star reviews have it right. The van was super-comfortable, and Ms. Jackie brought the history of the city alive for us. Music spills out of her, and we loved it. She used her talent to illuminate aspects of the tour, e.g. at the Lorraine Motel (singing the song Dr. King requested from Ben Branch just moments before Dr. King was assassinated), driving past the first African-American-owned radio station, etc. We got a super-comprehensive tour of Memphis, learned more than we could ever hope to describe, and felt we finished the tour having made a wonderful friend.
  • Great tour with the "Queen"! She greeted each one of us with a big hug to start and her personal touch continued throughout by taking family photos, answering any and all questions, and she seemed to know every person we met along the way. Queen provided a lot of historical information that we continued to expand upon during our remaining days in Memphis. Well worth your time to take this tour.
