Memphis Backbeat Big Mojo Tour was AWESOME

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!!!

Gary Hardy was highly entertaining and his personal familiarity and participation in the history of Rock 'n Roll made the tour a real experience. The tour guide at Sun Records studio was obviously very enthusiastic about her job and the industry it represents. She was one best, if not the best, tour guide we've come across. Being in the actual environment where the music of my childhood originated was just plain COOL!

The highlight of our stay in Memphis.

My husband and I booked this tour not knowing quite what to expect and it was the highlight of our stay! I think we were lucky to have Garry Hardy as our guide. Having been born and bred in Memphis he was so knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic about his subject. He is also a very accomplished singer and guitar player and entertained us throughout the tour. A bus ride has never been such fun! The guide at Sun Studios was also brilliant and the tour was fascinating. In the evening (Sunday) we returned to the cafe where the tour started to listen to Garry some more and enjoyed the Ribs there. Thank You! Carol Jillins

A musical history tour!!!

I'm an Elvis fan and have been several times in Memphis. Of course I have visited Graceland and have enjoyed the Sun studios. However, I have never visited the places in Memphis where Elvis lived and where his career started. A tour is not one of my favorite activities but I participated in a tour with Backbeat Tours. Now I can say that this trip was the highlight of my visit in August 2011. The warming up in the bus was fantastic and from the beginning I was in a good mood. I never thought to play in a bus with a tambourine and a egg shaker singing along with songs from the past. The tour was a mix of facts, musical highlights (the guide was a wonderful singer!) and entertainment. In short: a great happening that gives me again some extra memories of Elvis and Memphis!!!!!!!
