A fantastic tour. You learn a lot and have a great time doing it. You can even pack a cooler to bring on the bus with you. Our guide was great - lots of history, music, and personality. Of our party of four, two had never been to Memphis. They were totally amazed and entertained. My wife and I had been on the tour previously (maybe five years ago), and we could not wait to do the tour again and we once again had a great time. You have to do take this tour - it is a blast!!

We had the most marvelous time! Lots of music history and lots of fun! We would recommend this to everyone! A total different view of Memphis! The staff was fantastic! If I had to tell people to do one thing when in Memphis, this would be it!

Great way to get an overview of Memphis!

The Mojo tour is an entertaining and informative tour of many Memphis highlights. I would have marked 5 stars had the tour been on the usual Mojo bus, but apparently the bus was in the shop, and our tour had to be taken on a standard "for hire" small tour bus... I think that disrupted the trip a bit. But the guide was great- a good singer and knowledgeable/friendly.

One of the best tours ever!

My family had not heard about the Memphis Mojo Tour until my wife picked up a brochure from the Peabody Hotel (we were watching the procession of ducks from the indoor pond...what a hoot!). It was amazing, we were running a few minutes late and the tour accomodated us, by holding the bus until we arrived. We were then treated to what can only be best described as a rollicking concert an hour and a half long, by the one and only Memphis Jones, who entertained, informed and sang his way around the musical sights of Memphis. I have never been on a more entertaining tour. Two criticisms.... 1. Get the word out...our host in Memphis didn't know about your fabulous tours. 2. It is too cheap! thank you for a great experience. Russell...Perth Australia

Tour was good but Memphis is dirty

Tour Was good. Tour guide was informative and entertaining. But Memphis over all is in poor condition and run down. Beale St. was dirty and lots of people begging for money. My wife and I were approached several times which made us very uncomfortable. Would not return.

Air conditioning on the bus was a joke.

It was 98 degrees out and the air conditioning was a mere warm breeze. I thought my husband and I were going to pass out. The entertainer was so-so, but he pointed out things to see and knew a lot about them. He also recommended a tip at the end of the your which I thought was tacky.
