MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Elvis Presley’s Graceland now offers live online tours for fans around the world, including those unable to travel to the Tennessee tourist attraction during the coronavirus pandemic.
Graceland said the two-hour tours would take virtual visitors to Presley’s former Memphis home that has been converted into a museum and the meditation garden where he is buried. The singer and actor died in Memphis on August 16, 1977.
Also included on the $ 100 ticket is a tour of Presley’s jet and a walking tour of the entertainment complex, which houses exhibits and artifacts related to Presley. Spectators can ask questions during the tours.
Graceland typically receives hundreds of thousands of visitors a year. But the tourist attraction saw a drop in visitor numbers during the virus outbreak. Graceland was closed for several weeks last year and is now open for personal tours with limited capacity.
Virtual tours are scheduled for January 27th, February 25th and March 25th. Further dates are expected.
