Great tour. Highly recommend.

Backbeat Tours is great. They are very easy to work with and do everything they can to satisfy the customer. The tour I booked was rained out so they gave me three options to choose from. I chose the Mojo Tour and was not disappointed. Even though I have lived in this area for all my life, I still learned a lot about our city from the tour guide. He made the tour fun. He has a lot of musical talent. This is a great tour for anyone--locals or out of town.

This tour was the high light of our four day visit to Memphis. We were able to see much of the city, learned much of its history and so much about the history of the Blues and Rock and Roll. The musician, Memphis Jones, was excellent and made the tour the exceptional one that it was.

I feel that it was rushed at times. We zoomed past the front of Sun, BB Kings home which made it hard to take pictures on the tour

I had planned to tour with a different company until I read the reviews at the last minute. Based on the reviews of Back Beat Tours, I changed my mind and I'm so glad I did! It could not have been a better experience from the friendly guy at the ticket booth, to the driver, to the tour guide. They were very professional and there was no wasted time. It was really informative, the bus was comfortable, and we had a great time! We plan to do another (different) tour next time. I can't recommend this tour company highly enough.

We thought the tour was very well-done. Our tour guide, Nancy, was very knowledgeable. She kept us all entertained with her stories and music. Although we used to live in Memphis, we learned things about the city and its musical heritage.

Memphis Jones was our tour guide and he was VERY passionate about his love of Memphis (especially the music history). The 2 hours were enjoyable from start to finish. We didn't want it to end. We felt like memphis could talk (his 100 mile an hour style) for about 10 hours straight. Highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour - our tour guide Memphis Jones was a fine storyteller not to mention an excellent musician. We loved this tour and have no hesitation in reccommending it to any visitor to Memphis.

The mood was relaxed, the music was so good that we would have gone to see the musician again (but timing of our trip didn't allow for that), and we learned a lot about the history of Memphis and its music. The information went beyond straight history and made some connections as to why things happened the way they did and what influenced the development of the area and of the music. GREAT TOUR!
