I'm Jason, former Duckmaster at the world famous Peabody Hotel in the heart of downtown Memphis for over 5 years.
I led the Concierge team, which required knowledge of all the hottest spots, food and music, and ALL THINGS Memphis as the face of the hotel. I've hosted celebrities and guests from around the world on their visits to this landmark hotel.
This lead to many multimedia and personal appearances promoting the soulful sounds, local tastes and unique history of Memphis with an insider's perspective.
We appeared on the big screen in "Soul Men" and Justin Timberlake's "The Open Road" and the small screen on Animal Planet's "Outrageous Animal Homes" plus several other shows giving glimpses of the uniqueness of Memphis.
As a Memphis native and local celebrity, I want to show you this amazing city, and all it's history, culture and soul!

Where you'll be

Memphis' historical music scene is built around world famous Beale Street. We will explore the surrounding area, which includes multiple up and coming culinary venues, as well as historical sites such as the Peabody Hotel and the Chisca Hotel; both of which were instrumental in Memphis' expansion in the 1920's. Along Beale we will check out a few of the restaurants which cater to both the famous Barbecue scene as well as the music scene.

Jason went out of his way to make sure that I was able to take the tour on my first night in Memphis. Definitely take the tour your first night, if possible! Lots of great area and restaurant recommendations. He is very knowledgeable about the area and definitely piques your interest to learn more! Also a great photographer!

I highlyyyy recommend this to anyone- Jason has a bunch of insider info from working at the Peabody so even if you’re local you might learn something new. I’m on my first solo trip & wanted to see the food options- boy did he not disappoint!! I’m writing this review from one of the (amazing) restaurants he recommended; but if you’re looking for coffee, breweries, food, history, even housing, you’re looking at Jason!! I’m so glad I did this- it was the highlight of my trip because it made me feel aquatinted with the city & not as intimidated by all that Memphis has to offer. Plus for how cheap it is? Sign me up again!!!

Jason Sensat was my family’s tour guide of the amazing city of Memphis. We met him down town and his knowledge of the city and history made the tour even more enjoyable. His personality and charisma was infatuating and it felt like an old friend was showing you around the city. His stories and vast amount of information of the culture and places of interest gave us a lot of options to enjoy the city and experience a lot with the limited time we had, definitely made us want to return to explore the city more.Sensat is nothing less than a SANSATional guide and couldn’t recommend anyone better to show you the amazing city of Memphis and all it has to offer.

Very interesting tour through Memphis downtown. We learned about the duck master at the Peabody hotel and the story of the ducks. We wouldn't see half of the downtown if I was just wondering around...
