The musical element of this tour was great fun I was rattling my shaker & tapping my feet along with the rest of the bus! Until I came to Memphis & visited the Sun studios & toured round I didn't relise how much blues/soul music I'd heard before & really enjoyed. It is amazing how anyone could produce such great music with such limited resources compared with todays mixing desks, but they did. You can stand where Elvis stood & imagine you are close.

This was our third Backbeat tour over a four year period,each one has been fantastic. These are are really great value tours and from the time you get on the bus until you get off you are entertained & treated like welcome friends.We have had Memphis Jones twice now and he is great ,he certainly know all there is to know about Memphis & the music scene + more. This really is a great way to see parts of Memphis you wouldn`t get to see on you own, plus (its fun fun fun) So if you are off to Memphis (you lucky people) book this tour NOW !!!!

We throughly enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide Memphis Jones was an absolute joy. How he maintains his enthusiasm is a credit to him. The tour really was informative and fun. It put a lot of things into context.

My family (2 generations) all really enjoyed the backbeat tour. The tour guide was amazing, informative with the addition of humour and a great singing voice. We saw and learnt lots on the tour and got the chance to shake our maracas too! I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting memphis-put it on the must do list.

Loved our tour, starting with Memphis Jones, our singing, guitar strumming, joke and information tellin' guide. This tour was specific to music, which is exactly what we wanted. We chose the extended version, which gave our choice of a visit to Sun Recording, or Stax. We chose Stax. Our guide Memphis Jones went with us into the museum to ensure no difficulty with admission. Overall, I would do it again, I enjoyed it so well.

Memphis Jones is great!

If you are a music fan this is the tour for you. Memphis is FULL of musical history that runs into the present, and Memphis Jones is a fantastic musician and storyteller. We took the Stax Museun option, which was really interesting if you have any interest in soul music at all - I could have spent much more time there. Well worth the price!

A Super Experience

We had a really great time ! This was mainly due to the enthusiastic help of our tour guide Memphis Jones who really made the place come alive with his in depth knowledge, humour and great singing and guitar playing. The side trip to Soulsville USA was brilliant, the only problem is we could have done with more time to absorb the history of the place. Thanks Backbeat and especially thanks to Mr Jones.

My family and I really enjoyed this tour. It was fun as well as informative. The musician on our tour was great. He interacted well with everyone and made it a lot of fun. We booked the Big Mojo tour, which included a tour of Sun Studios. I am not sure I would recommend the Sun Studio addition because basically, all you got was a ride back to Sun Studio to take the very same tour as everyone else. The tour guide from the bus does not accompany you, so basically you are paying quite a bit extra just for transportation. If you do the math, it would be less expensive to take this tour separately. That being said, I would reccommend the Mojo Tour to anyone. It was a great time!

My husband & I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very personable & also very knowledgeable. The music the guide provided was wonderful. The guide interacted with us & has made the tour very memorable. We would recommend this tour to everyone. We took the extended tour & toured Sun Studios as well - we were glad we included this part because we learned some very interesting facts.

Absolutely fantastic tour

You get to see the city and hear it's history in air conditioned comfort along with some great music played by your tour guide. This is our second time on the tour - last went 8 years ago. It's even better now. Adding on Sun Studios is definitely worth it - you get a reserved time for that tour when you are on this one. I highly recommend this tour and will do it again next time I am in Memphis!
