Fun and informative tour

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.

A tour like no other!

This was a great fun tour! A really great start to our visit to Memphis! We were shown all around the places in Memphis which were of interest musically and historically accompanied by Brad who is an accomplished and enthusiastic musician who plays in local clubs. He handed round percussion instruments to all on the bus and we all joined in with appropriate songs as we passed by places of interest! At the end we all felt uplifted and happy to have taken part in in this very lively experience! Would definately recommend this tour!

Best part of Memphis!

I took this tour with my mom and sister on our recent trip to Memphis. The tour was by far the best part of our trip. The tickets were easy to book (we booked online) and the meet-up location was simple to find. Upon arriving we were immediatly greeted and told when the bus would pick us up-Great customer service. We had just enough time to grab an frozen 'adult' beverage before boarding. Once on the bus we met the band and were given instruments to play along with. Our tour guide was awesome! He made the tour fun for everyone on the bus and even let me have a bongo solo! I definately recommend this tour, so grab your bongos and a "Call a Cab" and get on the bus!
