Great tour with a difference

Sure, you could get on a hop-on, hop-off tour and see the standard touristy sights of Memphis; but if you are truly interested in the music history of this lovely city, hop on the Mojo bus and experience a musical tour hosted by a knowledgeable, engaging, and talented local artist. Our tour guide was a lovely young lady whose grandfather had once loaned Johnny Cash a guitar (and not had it returned for years!). She played guitar and sang us through the musical history of the town as we arrived at significant locations - her anecdotes were entertaining. The tour participants provided the rhythm section to accompany her - this kept my children entertained very well. We also enjoyed the visit to Sun Studios, where the tour is not run by Backbeat, but by the Sun Studios employees (the Mojo Bus drops tour participants off at the studio in time to join in with a tour, and then picks them up afterwards). Overall, a terrific tour of Memphis.

A Fun Way to Feel the City!

This tour was just ideal for two people still a little nervous about driving in a biggish city (on the wrong side of the road!) Our guide was great; funny, knowledgeable, clever with the guitar and inclusive of all the guests. It was a novel way to see the city highlights and cleverly done. Enjoyed greatly!

Extended Memphis Mojo Tour highly entertaining

Highly recommend this entertaining and educational tour. My wife has no interest in real music, particularly the Blues, but even she found this tour interesting and enjoyable. The tour guide/guitarist (sorry I cant remember her name) was excellent, interspersing interesting stories and anecdotes with good interpretations of classic songs. Definitely a must for visitors to Memphis and make sure you include a visit to Sun on the tour.

Poor tour

Camera opportunities were poor ie out of the bus window , with glass flashback .one photo stop outside of the bus was a fluke by virtue of a customer wanting the toilet !! .The young gentleman singing was more preoccupied with his singing on beale street ie catch me here and tip me .My father needed a toilet stop and my friend who stayed behind was told why he had to go right at that moment , has he could have waited till the sun studio .well pardon my father for having a prostrate problem , he did well to hold on has he did , and nothing was said for the previous stop when the guide also alighted the bus .Had i known their would be no photo stops outside of the bus i would have not booked .The poor excuse of time proferred by the guide was poor , in liverpool the magical mystery beatles tours are time constrained but their is an outside photo shot at every relevant stop .you could do well to learn from the way they are operated.

Katherine was our tour guide/entertainer. She did an excellent job of providing the information in a really entertaining way. Enjoyed her performances of the songs she talked about.
