Gary gave great insights into the historical streams that created the Memphis sound, from the cotton fields and the Blues to the rock and roll of Elvis and Jerry Lee.

Great fun for locals and out of towners

What fun. My wife and i are locals looking to entertain an out of town couple is how we found the "Blues Bus" This was as much fun as I have ever had with my clothes on. The musician on the bus kept up a lively line of chatter about local blues haunts as we drove and paused before them. He also sang and played Memphis Music all the while. Even though I was born and raised in Memphis I learned more about the Memphis Blues, Music scene than I learned all the years i lived here. The tour lasted about an hour and a half and the bus was very comfortable. This is really a great way to entertain out of towners.

Fun tour - definitely should check out

This is a popular tour and with good reason: you get a lot of information with an enthusiastic tour guide and a good dose of music. Altogether worth it. About the only thing I'd improve on would be to have more time to take pictures along the way. The bus only really stops for Sun Studios where you get out and go inside Sun. The rest of the tour is "on the go" and you don't get many opportunities to take pictures...well, unless you have a camera that takes motion pictures well.

This was our second visit and our second tour. Everyone was looking forward to the Mojo bus tour and we were not disappointed. We learned some history and were entertained as well. Our group had an age range from 6 to 66 and we all had fun. Keep up the great work guys!

We started our trip to Memphis with the Mojo tour. It was a great way to learn about Memphis music history. Loved our host and busdriver! We all sang and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this tour to a family with children. We had a short stop at Sun studios which was great for the kids. We plan on doing this again with our extended family.

We loved our tour and musician. It was fun and informative. Our 9 & 10 year old grand-daughters said it was the best tour we did during our week long vacation. The old tour bus made it even more special.

Fast paced entertainment

Thoroughly enjoyed the MOJO tour even though it started out a little wet. (air conditioner condenser dumped water on a couple in our group). Jake Fly was very entertaining and informative and the tour seemed to go by way too fast.
