Our most popular Memphis tour for students emphasizes both Memphis history and our modern-day city. During approximately six-hours, guides will point out major sites as well as give commentary on Memphis through the years. Teachers are supplied with a quiz to be used to supplement the tour and answers will be given during the tour.
Lunch at a restaurant can be arranged, but students usually bring a sack lunch and enjoy a picnic at Martyrs' Park. Stops are also made at St. Jude, the Tennessee Welcome Center and Beale Street. In some cases, students are allowed to purchase souvenirs either at A. Schwabs' or at the St. Jude gift shop.
The following sites are included in addition to the planned stops:
- Victorian Village
- Medical Center
- National Civil Rights Museum
- Peabody Hotel & Peabody Place
- Cotton Row
- Memphis Rock & Soul Museum
- Gibson Guitar Factory
During the Beale Street stop, students see Elvis Presley Plaza, Handy Park and the Blues Walk of Fame.
Costs are determined by the number of students and available transportation.
We can also help you arrange a local or regional field trip based on a particular course of study.
Other tours suitable for students include Graceland, Good Rockin' Tonight, African-American History, Ol' Man River, Pigs to Plants, and Cotton Pickin' Time.
