Great tour - very music oriented

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.

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.

Very Interesting and entertaining tour

My group consisted of myself and my elderly parents and an aunt. All of us enjoyed the trip completely. There was a nice mixture of rock n roll, blues and memphis history that we would not seen or known if not for this trip. Our tour guy was great. Very informative, interacted with crowd, and gave interesting tidbits along the way. Just the right length and worth the money.

Ask for Memphis Jones by name!

What a fantastic tour! Great fun, well paced, and not only did we learn a lot about the social and musical history of Memphis, the brilliant Memphis Jones with his singing and guitar playing made sure we really felt a part of the Memphis community. We'd highly recommend this tour to people of all ages, particularly music lovers.

Somewhat Interesting, but.....

This was a pretty good tour, although I think the price was slightly high. The tour provides a "guide" who is supposed to entertain you with comedic remarks, and who uses singing as part of the sight descriptions. This sounded fun to us, so we booked it. How in the world did we end up with a tour guide who could not sing??? His bad voice, in addition to some pretty lame jokes, made for a not so-entertaining tour. We did, however, see some interesting sights that we didn't know existed from sightseeing in previous years.

Great, fun afternoon

Memphis Jones was our tour guide andin additionto being very knowledgeable about the history of Memphis and its music he had asense of humor, plays the guitar and sings very well. We usually don't do this kind of tour but found that we saw a lot of Memphis we would have otherwise missed and learned a lot about the city without having to contend withtraffic. I would definitely recommend the tour for someone who isn't going tobe in town long.

Caution if traveling with kids

I was traveling with 10 high school youth from our church youth group. While the tour was fun and upbeat there were a few ladies that were obviously drunk. They were very loud, drinking beer, and exchanged some inappropriate comments with the tour guide. The tour guide himself made some comments that were not appropriate for teens/kids either, in my opinion. The references to drinking, sex, and even making fun of an overweight person standing on the sidewalk were all things that I personally frowned on. On the other hand, I did think it was a great way to see Memphis and get a lot of interesting history. Maybe the earlier tour instead of the evening tour would be a better choice when traveling with kids.
