So much fun!!! Loved the Mojo and the tunes!

I was solo on this trip . I was made to feel very welcome and I loved playing my instrument on the bus along with the guide. I learned so much about Memphis and saw so many amazing sights all within the 90 minutes. You can tell the tour people really enjoy what they are doing. I would recommend this bus to anyone! There was a toddler on the bus dancing along, an older couple whistling and me - shaking my musical egg-thing. I had so much fun.

Fantastic Musical History

We were thrilled with the musical adventure tour that Gary took us on - he had a wealth of insider knowledge concerning the City's musical history, and general history, and the wider social context that envelopes these topics, that we very much appreciated! A wonderful, musical, educational 2 hrs about Memphis, home of the blues and birthplace of rock and roll!

We thoroughly enjoyed it. Why didn't the tour take us by the high school Elvis attended?

Super way to see the City

This was a wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Memphis Jones, showed such a great passion for his city and the music it has produced. As we drove up to the Lorraine Hotel, he was singing "Sitting at the Dock of the Bay." Awe inspiring! I would recommend this tour to anyone that is visiting Memphis.

This was one of the most enjoyable tour experiences we've ever been on! Our guide, "Memphis" Jones, was outstanding! We'd heard him playing at BB Kings the night before and his knowledge and passion for the Blues came through loud and clear throughout the tour! We learned so much, and came to appreciate Memphis' place in the history of music. We can hardly wait to go back! If you do nothing else in Memphis, take this tour!

We took the tour our last day in Memphis; probably best to do this tour first thing as we had already seen most of the stops. But, the music and stories from our guide were great.

I really enjoyed the MoJo tour, I have been to Memphis many times and know alot about the area, but learned many new things on the tour. It was definitely not what I was expecting, there was more music history involved, the guitar playing guide was a nice surprise.

Memphis Jones makes Backbeat Tour a blast!

Memphis Jones was the passionate guitar-playing, history spewing, crazy funny, good-smelling musician that accompanied us on our non-traditional bus tour of Memphis. He told us things we would never have known except for his extensive knowledge of local history. He sang, told corny jokes and smelled good, too! We are so glad we chose this for our one tour of Memphis! Bus was AC and comfy, bring your tall beer or margarita, tambourines and settle in for a fun time!
