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.

This is a fun tour

This tour is not just a sit and listen tour. You get involved, singing and laughing - heck! - some of you even get a tambourine (the rest get shakers), to sing and get involved with . I have been on two of these. One was the regular tour and I thought THAT one was great. This one added the tour of SUN STUDIOS, which in and of itself, is fabulous - a must do. The girl we had knew so much about the area and delivered that in a humorous and knowledgeable way but the knowledge of the artists, at the time - Elvis, B.B. King, etc.- is what sets this tour apart from others. This is a good one and everyone who wants to get some good 'background' before (or after) hitting the Memphis area, should do this. It is really good.

Highlight of our Memphis weekend. Great guides both on bus and at Sun Studios. Such knowledge and enthusiasm. It was contagious. Listened to Elvis all the way home

The local Backbeat office was very accommodating about our last minute change of schedule. Katy (?) the tour guide and Harold the driver were wonderful. This tour was a great overview of Memphis and its incredible place in history. As a collector vintage audio equipment, vinyl and CD recordings this extended tour was too short.

Great music along with a complete tour of all the necessary things people want to see. Great information given on each one. This is the way all tours should be given. Loved it.

My girlfriends and I enjoyed this tour immensely. It was one of the best tours I've ever been on. I would highly recommend it to everyone. We took the Extended Memphis Mojo Tour. The whole tour was great!! Our tour guide was very informative, upbeat and thorough with his descriptions of all the different things we saw. He also sang a variety of songs with his guitar in between talking that were related to what we were seeing. We are BIG Elvis Presley fans and REALLY LOVED the Elvis related sites. We saw the first apartment he lived when he and his parents first moved to Memphis. We even got to go to the park where Elvis performed his first live outdoor concert. He only new 2 songs at the time. It was great! The tour guide let all of us go up on the stage one at a time and gave us his guitar to hold to take a picture. It was so cool! It was the extended tour which meant we got a tour of Sun Studios where Elvis recorded his first record. Many other singers recorded there also. This is a tour you won't want to miss if you are going to visit Memphis. We really loved it!! Thank you for an awesome time!!!

The tour guide was so nice and we loved the songs they sang along with the info. The only downfall was at Sun Studio. It was our first stop and in lieu of having to wait in a small room for 20 minutes or so, we should have been informed that we can walk around the front part of the shop. But beyond that, we enjoyed it and enjoyed taking pics by the microphone that "Elvis" and many other greats used. Would recommend this tour!

I thought the guide was too talkative and did not interact with the group. Her singing and music talents were average
