We thouroughly enjoyed the tour. I wish we could have gotten off at The Lorraine Motel for a picture session and just to stand near the area where Dr. King was shot.

Our musician/tour guide on the bus was knowledgeable and fun and a darned good singer. The tour of Sun Studios was a great addition. I'd recommend this tour to anyone.

The Extended Mojo Tour is a great way to learn a lot about Memphis in a short amount of time. Brandon, our singing, guitar picking tour guide, made the whole trip entertaining. When they hand out the tambourines and shakers take one and join in. We sang along, laughed and had a wonderful time throughout the entire tour.

This is a great experience. Our tour went to Sun Studio first, returned to Beale Street and exchanged some customers and then did the Mojo tour. I was worried that the old bus might be hot but it was just the opposite. We had a rainy day and the bus had AC so it was a bit cool. No--WAY COOL! Listen up to your Elvis, Carl, Jerry, Johnny, Sam and Dave so you can sing along. And one Chuck Berry ... Can't imagine a better tour for the money.

Mixed Reaction to the Tour

Four of us took the Big Mojo Tour. Our "escort" could play the guitar well, but his voice left much to be desired. He continually made references to the gratuities he expected to receive for the tour: "$10 if you enjoyed yourselves and $ 20 if you learned something". It was repeated many times. Also, we thought we paid for a waste of time to take the first tour, return to Beale Street and wait for others to join us and then go out again. We honestly expected a full tour! We do not think we got our money's worth for this tour. The hostess at the point of origin was very friendly. We did have a tour of Memphis and a tour of Sun Studio. I do believe a different "entertainer/guide" could have made a difference. Our singer looked like he had just rolled out of bed.

An Entertaining Way To Tour Memphis

My partner and myself on a visit to Memphis from the UK joined a small group for an extended Backbeat Tour of Memphis including Sun recording studios. We were made to feel welcome immediately by the lady at the ticket office and took our seats on the historic restored Backbeat bus with nice comfortable seats and were treated to an entertaining tour with our tour guide in good singing voice trying to get reserved British tourists to join in, (a difficult Job we don't do audience participation very well) but all in all an enjoyable tour with lots of information good entertainment with nice people. A tour of Memphis with a difference and recommended

Sing Your Way Around Memphis

We had a ball touring Memphis with Daniel Sage. What a personable young fellow. Lots of talent too. Of course, the rhythm section (that was the tour group) made all the difference. We enjoyed seeing the sights around the City and for us one of the highlights was the tour of Sun Studios. We sang and laughed the whole time. I would recommend this tour very highly to anyone interested in a unique tour of Memphis.

a great time with Memphis Jones

We absolutely loved our Big Mojo tour with Memphis Jones! His talented singing and playing, knowledge of the historical roots of the great area blues musicians, and terrific enthusiasm for all things Memphis, provided us with a truly unique, enjoyable, and inspirational experience. We now consider this to be the best bus tour that we've ever taken!

Memphis Backbeat Big Mojo Tour was AWESOME
Sat, Apr 7, 12   1:00 PM Avie47 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Three die-hard music and Elvis fans wanted to see Memphis from a music perspective. We were wowed at the tour of Sun Studios, realizing how quaint it was to put out such great hits. Then we got back on the bus, wondering what else we could learn, and our guide, "Memphis Joe" sang and told anecdotes and took us through old neighborhoods where Elvis and Johnny Cash lived before they were famous, showed us the site of Elvis' first concert, showed us the spot where Martin Luther King was shot, and we were enchanted the entire three hours. I recommend the extended tour to all music lovers who visit memphis. We are still talking about it. Still remembering tidbits of information we'd forgotten about it. We wish we had taped the whole thing so we could play it back and remember even more.

"Best of the Best!!!!"

My wife and I went on the Backbeat Tour Bus and we enjoyed it immensely. Memphis Jones our Tour Guide was so entertaining, he made the tour interactive. He played guitar and sang, all the people on the bus joined in and had either a tamborine or "shaker" to assist with the rhythm section. Memphis Jones is very knowledgeable of Memphis and musical history. We had a wonderful bus driver and the Memphis Mojo Tour staff was extremely pleasant When visiting Memphis, don't miss this tour. KUDOS!!!
