You Can't "Beat" It!

This was our second time in recent years to go on the MoJo Tour. We actually had the fabulous Katherine as our tour guide/entertainer again. It was wonderful to have 10 of us all doing the same activity without someone having to drive or struggle with a map. You could kick back and relax. We enjoyed being able to bring snacks and drinks, including adult beverages, on the bus. It was audience participation with absolutely no pressure. When touring a city with such a unique atmosphere and musical history, you can't beat Backbeat tours!

Mojo Fun Tour

The Mojo bus tour was very nice with a great background history of the music scene and the citizens that made the city what it is today The Tour host was full of interesting titbits of history and Elvis ( which was the reason that I was in Memphis) and sung his way through the music history of Memphis .... The stop at Sun Records appeared to be a promotional commercial stop rather than a historic visit to the Studio and it woulkd have been nice to have another stop and photo session at another suitable venue. It was just passable as a organised tour and we were lucky that the bus was not over crowded.... the bus itself was rather old and uncomfortable over the bumps

Music Review exceeded expectations

When we signed up for the Memphis Moho tour we had no idea that we would learn so much about the music that originated in Memphis. We really enjoyed the tour guide who played the guitar and sang songs. By doing this, we were able to recognize songs and learn a lot about who, when were they were originated and some interesting facts. I have been on many tours in many cities and this one was the most original and most interesting. Everyone in my family learned a lot and had a much richer experience in Memphis. I would strongly recommend this tour

This tour was a great way to learn about Memphis blues & rock & roll history. It was fun being interactive with the singer / tour guide. We all had a great time and the bus was cool and comfortable. I'd even do it again because it was so much fun.

Really Fun Tour

We did the Memphis Mojo Tour, bus was comfortable not crowded and so much fun. Our guide was very informative about the area and we enjoyed his music. Even though we didn't stop anywhere that we could get off the bus the guide told us enough about each area we were able to decide from his descriptions which places we wanted to go back to on our own to spend more time. - Pam Lavender

Entertaining

One of the most entertaining and informative tours we have been on. Instead of dry facts the singing guitar playing tour guide was a pleasant twist.

Lively, Fun, Informative

We really enjoyed our Back Beat Tour. The guide was very talented and we had fun singing and playing with him, but beyond that, his recounting of the Blues and Rock and Roll history in Memphis was very informative and fascinating. He did a great job keeping things moving and made sure we were having a good time.

Great tour - very music oriented
Sun, Dec 30, 07   2:30 PM pinkynd1 Female 20-29 Combination Family Without Children
My brothers were visiting Memphis fort he first time and my husband and I just moved here, so we thought this would be a fun way to see the city. It absolutely was and I totally recommend it. Our only complaint was that it's very focused on the music side of things and didn't offer much other history/stats on Memphis.

Great Great Tour

I have to say that when I first got on the bus I was reluctant but once the tour started and the guide (Memphis Jones) started his entertaining, it was a blast. Memphis Jones was very knowledgable of Memphis and the history of the city. It was definitely the highlight of my vacation. Couldn't have asked for a better time.
