Love Elvis? So Do We

If you really love Elvis, you won’t want to miss our special Hound Dog Tour during Elvis Week in August. It’s a fun musical tour exploring the places that Elvis lived, worked, and played, and has become an Elvis Week tradition: scroll down for this year’s dates and times.

But no matter what time of year, no visit to Memphis is complete without a tour of Elvis’ beloved home, Graceland. Since the recent remodeling and expansion of the Visitor’s Center, there’s more to do and see than ever before!


As unique as the man himself, the Hound Dog Tour takes a one-of-a-kind approach to sharing Elvis's legacy in a high-energy concert and sightseeing tour all rolled into one. This 2 hour tour also offers an optional guided tour of the Presley apartment at Lauderdale Courts, where a teenage Elvis lived with his family. (If you choose to visit Lauderdale Courts, the tour will last about 3 hours.)

See exciting Elvis sites such as:
  • Sun Studio
  • The Presley's Lauderdale Courts apartment
  • Elvis' high school
  • The Overton Park Shell, the amphitheater where he performed his first big show in 1954
  • Elvis' house at Audobon Drive
  • The original Lansky Bros. clothing store
  • The former Memphian Theater
  • Chisca Hotel, home of WHBQ radio station
  • Supercycles, where Elvis purchased his motorcycles and golf carts
  • Homes of Elvis' girlfriends

The Hound Dog has become a tradition during both Elvis Week in August and Elvis' birthday celebrations in January, with many passengers returning year after year. Come celebrate the man behind the legend: whether you're a longtime fan or a new admirer, we guarantee fun for all!
