    We were fortunate to have Sheree as our tour guide. She was full of interesting information and upbeat enthusiasm despite the pouring rain. She gave us plenty of time for questions and she answered them fully. Sheree turned a dismal day on Beale Street into a bright and positive expedition.

    Although I did enjoy the tour and the guide seemed informative it was hard to concentrate and take everything in that he was saying as we had a hard time looking at him talking as he had white saliva in both corners of his mouth the whole time. If not for that I may have given it an extra rating and suggest someone with a big voice should always be giving the tour to be able to hear over the music. Sorry but it's honest feedback.
