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.

We loved this tour. Not only did we get an overview of the area and significant sights, we were entertained by a great musician! Would highly recommend this tour! We added the Sun tour to the basic tour which worked out great so we didn't have to drive and park. The staff from booking the tour to the driver were exceptional.

We scheduled the tour on line. The website was very informative and instructions were easy to follow. We were intrigued by the Idea of having musicians on the bus. Our guide was very talented and had a good sense of humor. The extra tour to Sun Studios was great. I would recommened the tour to anyone who has wants to see the sites in a nice air conditioned bus. We actually went back to Overland Park and the Levitt Shell for a free concert that night. Wouldn't have known about it if we hadn't been on the tour.
