Road Notes and Quotes
We returned home a few days ago after our vacation to Tennessee and Florida. We just wanted to thank you for a fantastic tour of Memphis with our friends on Thursday 16th March. It really was the highlight of our vacation - our friends are still talking about their surprise trip in your Cadillac. We were quite impressed with Memphis and it was great seeing Sun Studios. Thank you for making our short stay in Memphis so memorable. I hope we get chance to return again some day. Did you receive the pages we sent you from the Delta in-flight magazine?

Thanks so much for your time today. You are a great soul and meeting you was a great part of my trip. Still looking for some local poon tang.....
I wish you all the best with your endeavors and never ever give up - like never - not even when you want to - never give up and all your shit will happen.
Shit always happens and it might as well be good shit

Hi there Tad!
Just to say hello, man!
Hope things are fine over there! It sure was nice having you here in our city!
Went to NY and had a big time, but let me tell you that your style is the best, man!
I sincerely appreciate your way of dealing with sites and places and things along the touristic roads! You gave that little extra!
Ain't I nice to you, man!
Have a nice life!

just a short note to let you know we arrived back safely in the UK and to say how much we enjoyed the "Greatest Hits" tour on 26th May. Can't think of a better way to see the sights in Memphis than with such a friendly and knowledgeable host as yourself and from the back of a classic car (being stopped by the police is now one of our favourite "war stories" from the holiday!!).
I will definitely recommend the tour to anyone visiting Memphis and I hope you continue to give great "experiences" to other visitors to the city.

Thanks again for a great tour.
BTW, a little more Elvis family info.
My 17 yr old nephew had Elvis's grand daughter over at my sister's house the other night. It seems that his best friend who is the son of Guess Jeans (Marciano is their last name) is her current boyfriend.
I don't know if you will remember me, but I remember you. in fact I am looking at a post card you sent me some time back. I was delighted and surprised to find your company listed in the National Geographic Traveler boasting 25 "authentic experiences". By now you probably have a fleet of cars or maybe not. But I am glad to see you're still in business.I really don't know how long it has been. I visited Memphis with a fellow by the name of M. J. We were on our way to New Orleans to visit a friend of his. I broke things off when I got there and found out he had been less than truthful about his divorce. Live and learn. I hope all is well with you. I am still in Minneapolis. If you have an inkling, feel free to e-mail me.
Lisa and I have just returned home from our vacation in Memphis and Las Vegas.We just wanted to send you a quick message on our return to thank you for the great tour of Memphis last week (Wednesday 28th). In advance of us arranging the city tour with you, it was one of those "should we, shouldn't we" things but we are both glad we did!
It was good to see a bit of the real character of the city, and not just the edited touristy bits. Whilst I appreciated seeing some of the early Elvis landmarks, it was at least as interesting to see the other areas.
The tour was a highlight of our overall vacation. The memory will stay with us for a very long time of riding along in the back of a '55 Cadillac with the Memphis music playing, cruising the highways with your enjoyable and interesting commentary.
Hope the '55 is running well!

I'm not sure if you'll remember me but I'll try to refresh your memory. My name is Emily, I am 16 and from Melbourne, Australia. When I was in Memphis for the 2004 Elvis birthday celebrations, You gave me a tour of Memphis which I could never forget (while my gramdma tried to recover our luggage.) I often wonder how your tours are going and whether or not you ended up introducing more cars into your buisness. I thought of you and the others I met along the way as I celebrated August 16th this year. That day I got up before school and spent some time at the Elvis memorial in Melbourne cemetry (which was unveiled in 1977 by Johnny O'Keefe) At night, I went to an Elvis tribute night at "the old bar" (luckily I slipped past without I.D) and won three out of four rounds of Elvis trivia. Bands from around Melbourne payed homage to Elvis by playing their interpretations of his songs. I hope that my band will get together a set and play at next years tribute (with my brand new drum kit.) I was going through my photos and came across the image of your caddy parked in the driveway of Elvis house on Audubon Drive. It's an excellent photo and I would have sent it to you except it includes the bonnet of a silver car on the right hand side...I'm sure you have a better one by now.
Take care xxx
Stu and I had such a great time last weekend. Will never forget the day in the Delta. And, if the flight attendant who I referred to you ever books your trip, you will never forget us. Very cute. Looks like Mariah Carey’s older sister.
All the best -
