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

The tour guide was fantastic...He made the tour so much fun with his wealth of information about the city and his musical talents. Great way to get an overview of Memphis History on a very comfortable bus!

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.

Signed up online, no hassle. Showed up on time, no hassle. Boring tour guide, no way! My wife and I had a great time. Would recommend highly, especially to music fans.

Fun trip round Memphis
Wed, Jun 2, 10   1:30 PM rachelwillat Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
My mum, my 3 year old & myself went on the Backbeat Bus Tour with our compare Jake Fly & our shakers. We had a fun time driving round the city with Jake singing & filling us in with local music history & items of musical interest. We all enjoyed it & would recommend it to Memphis visitors as a way to see around the city if you don't have a car. I would say that this is a music tour & the information given is only musical & no other history of the city was given but this didn't detract from the fun! We would like to thank Jake for a fun 90 minutes in Memphis.

TOTALLY FANTASTIC! NOT TO BE MISSED!

WE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OUR MOJO TOUR. MEMPHIS JONES IS SO INFORMATIVE, ENTERTAINING AND TALENTED. I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP. IT EMBODIED WHAT MEMPHIS IS ALL ABOUT AND GAVE US AN APPRECIATION OF THE CITY AND IT'S HISTORY.
