Jake had such enthusiasm for his city, it was quite contagious. Lots of fun on a cold, snow flurry day in Memphis.

This was a very engaging tour and a really good overview of Memphis' musical history. Time flew by and it was over before I knew it. My only quibble (if you can call it that) is that there wasn't enough representation of the blues aspect.

I had brought my in-laws (along with husband) to visit Memphis. We ranged from age 67-44yrs. My main goal was to entertain them and they very much enjoyed their time on the Mojo Memphis bus tour! FUN AND INFORMATIVE!

Our tour guide was Memphis Jones. He was excellent! He gave a very intelligent and witty presentation of the spirit of Memphis.

we enjoyed the music and the joying in with the songs. found out things we would have not know about the history of Memphis. Also gave us an ideal of more things to go back and see at a later time.

Liked the history about the Memphis area of all the singers and record producers. Intresting facts about their early lives, how they got started and where they lived.

Really fun but light on information

The tour guide was very entertaining and talented. It could have been better if he'd provided more facts/history/information. Very enjoyable but not so educational...

Musical twist on the usual city tour.

We love to aquaint ourselves in a new city by taking a short tour. This gives us an overview of the city and allows us to focus our time by spending more or less time at some of the attractions in town. Backbeat Mojo Tour did just that PLUS entertained us along the way. The woman singer was terrific (and the three of us in our group are singers as well, so we appreciated knowing more about the music scene in Memphis), well informed about the city sites and handled difficult topics such as race relations, the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and segregation with compassion, care, and historical accuracy. We'd highly recommend this tour.

HIghlight of our road trip

We can't speak highly enough of the BackBeat tour we did during our visit to Memphis. We had the most fun, hardly noticed that 90 minutes had passed, and aside from the fact that we had physically got off the bus to visit Sun studios, one could be forgiven for not noticing that we had left Beale St. Our guide, Memphis Jones, rocks - his knowledge was superb, his singing swiftly contagious and his personality simply wonderful. We have already told most of our friends about this tour, and will continue to do so. Awesome - don't change.
