Our tour guide was Memphis Jones. He handed out tamborines and shaker eggs and we had a great time enjoying the music that he played during the very informative and entertaining tour. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour of the musical roots of Memphis. Jason was our tour guide/entertainment. As we passed locations of interest - Where early performers lived and recorded - Elvis; BB King; etc, Jason wailed the related songs and played his guitar. He was good enough that I would pay to hear him sing in concert.

Learned a lot on a rainy day

I had booked in advance, and by chance it turned out to be pretty rainy on that day. Riding around on a bus while learning about the history of Memphis Blues was the perfect activity. The host was very knowledgeable and talented, and got a good rhythm section going on the bus. Recommended.

Great musical history tour

Great interactive tour of Memphis' musical history sites. Very entertaining guide-who shared a lot of musical trivia. I learned quite a bit about Memphis - both music and history. Probably not something I'd do again, but I'm glad that I did it once.

The tour was a great way to spend a few hours one morning. The musical based tour was far more interesting than just riding on a bus being talked at.

My friend and I really enjoyed our Memphis Mojo Tour with Memphis Jones. He was a high energy wealth of musical knowledge. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the tour had more to do with the music of memphis than the general history of the city. We had very limited time to explore Memphis and that was a great and entertaining overview of the Memphis music industry. We would recommend it to music lovers and/or anyone just wanting to learn more about the music in Memphis.

Don't leave Memphis without taking this tour. Memphis Jones was our "host" and was delightful, funny, talented and knowledgeable. You could tell he loves his music and this city. He had a lot of fun music and historical facts that he shared. Tambourines and egg shakers were passed out on the bus along with the invitation to join in on the singing. I could think of at least 5 people back home (Chicago) that would immensely enjoy this tour.
