Fun, unusual tour

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 thoroughly enjoyed this tour (and the entertainment!). Of course, the highlight for the four of us was Sun Records Recording studio, A great way to see a lot in little time.

Not knowing quite what to expect with this tour, I was pleasantly surprised with a very clean, and cool bus. The guitar playing, singing tour guide, Dylan, was excellent! It was a fun way to tour the Memphis sites. Don't miss this tour!

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.

It was a good tour Brad our guide and singer was very informative and had a very nice voice! Glad I included the Sun Studio it was amazing learnt alot I was just thinking we would be off the bus as well to see differnt things like going inside Laurderdale Court or having a moment to hope off the bus to take pictures of the differnt sights But overall a good experience and alot of fun

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.
