March 28th, 2018

Memphians and tourists alike can learn new facets of the city’s history from Ogle’s extensive knowledge about historical sites and little-known, quirky details about the city of blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll.

When asked which tour Memphians should go on, Ogle responded, "All of them!" 

Learn what made the city flourish into what it is today, as Ogle colorfully narrates the city’s history as if it’s jumping out of the history books -- into real life. Don't miss out on this highly entertaining and educational experience for all ages!

"There's so much history this city has to offer, and a lot of it lives in Downtown. I love doing these tours and meeting the people and sharing stories and adding new facts here and there to the tours. They're so fun for me to do!"
