RCA Studio B Reviews
Tour guide was amazing. So many intimate details on Elvis and Johnny Cash along with many others. Everyone got chills while they were there, especially when they played Heartbreak Hotel. more »
If you visit anywhere this has to be it. Of all the places to visit on the blues trail this is in the top three. Go there and be happy! more »
Had a group of 19 scheduled for a tour at 3:30pm. Right on time out guide Debra was out to greet us. She brought us right in and started giving us all the details you could dream of. It was so cool to hear about the history there. From Charlie Pride to Elvis, Debra knew it all. I recommend requesting her as a guide if possible. She speaks with such passion you would think she had been there for it all. Great time!
I highly recommend this tour! Our guide Ron was very knowledgeable about the studio's history and current use shared it in a very interesting and entertaining way. I walked away feeling like I had traveled back in time. The tour was definitely time and money well spent.
