Greetings! My name is Carolyn Michael-Banks and I am the owner and founder of A Tour of Possibilities (ATOP), an African American history tour of Memphis, TN. I operate the only tour company in Memphis, TN offering regularly scheduled tours with a narrative and perspective not customarily included in traditional tours.
ATOP’s mission is to take you on an eye-opening journey that enlightens and entertains. We share a Memphis you can FEEL! Together we will explore the influence and contributions made by African Americans in the development of this great city. You will be engaged not just by the sites we cover but the lesser known stories woven in between those historical sites.
We are extremely fortunate to have two extraordinary team members on board. Kenon Walker who is an actor, artist and Duck Master @ the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN. Jackie Murray is a director, singer and actress. They bring skills and talents that will ensure you will not only tour Memphis but experience Memphis!
ATOP has been operating since 2014. We have received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2017, 2018 and 2019.
We offer several tours:the Grand Tour – our Private Tour, The Overview Tour – our non-stop city tour and our newest offering – the Caravan Tour – you stay in your own car and follow our van through the city (in a caravan) and hear the tour via bluetooth through the speakers in your car.
