Mud Island - $10/person Graceland VIP Tour - $35/person Memphis Mojo Tour - Priceless!! Old or young, the Mojo Tour is worth the price of admission. Let loose and sing along to great music and learn a bunch about a cool city. I was skeptical before booking the tour, but our experience was on par with the other great reviews for these guys!

The tour guide was fantastic (Miss Apple). Talking about the music of Memphis to us was like putting us back in time and feeling the music as it developed. We learned things we never knew. It was wonderful. Highly recommend it to everyone.

We loved Memphis Jones and the great tour/performance he gave us. We were doubly pleased when he took us to Graceland. He is a real asset.

I was recommended by the concierge at the Westin on Beale Street. I had a great time...laughed, sung, and learned tons of information. Memphis Jones was awesome...I didn't want to get off! So much fun....I would recommend to anyone of any age.

This tour helped fill in the information-gaps about Memphis that we are glad we now know. We were on a 1 1/2 day whirlwind tour of the city, in a town that just can't be see in that short of a time. Mojo was a fun way to educate ourselves on Memphis. School should be this much fun!

Gary Hardy was funny & had great stories of his personal and the cities music history. Great raport between him & the tour guide. Would recommend actual stops to be able to spend some time at the historic sites.

Good but not for international tourists.

This was our second time on the tour (and maybe the last one). The first time, we had a great time with Memphis Jones as our guide. I am originally from another country and the first time we went on the tour, I took my mom on the tour who does not speak English at all. Based on the reviews, I decided that there would be a lot of music, and I would be able to translate the rest. And this was exactly what happened. Memphis Jones is very talented, and we REALLY ENJOYED the tour. Last Saturday, we had visitors from Israel. The first thing that came to our mind was to go to Memphis and take the Mojo tour. However, this time we had a different experience because we had a different guide. The tour was Ok, and he sang nicely not a lot though. We heard a buch of names and it was difficult to imagine what the music was like. Sometimes the examples were provided (this made a whole a lot of difference). Overall, it was boring for our guests. It might be very interesting for people who are experts of musical history of those times. I understood that the guide's whole career was in music in Memphis, which is nice. However, I think that he went a bit overboard with self-promotion. I am not sure if I am ever going on this tour myself again. If I am sure that Memphis Jones is going to be my guide, I might still take my international visitors on a tour.
