The history of Memphis music in a nutshell

My family and I enjoyed the tour very much. We especially liked learning about all of the different types of music that have their roots in Memphis. The tour guide was very interesting and funny! My seven-year-old daughter really loved playing music along with the tour guide. We got to see many neat sites of Memphis that we would not have been able to find on our own. We highly recommend this tour because it is fun for the whole family.

Air conditioner on bus did not work.

It was 99 degrees outside and the air conditioner on the bus did not work. This made for a miserable ride.

Our Group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the Memphis Mojo Tour. The Tour Guide, Karen Apple was an amazing guide and singer. She was so interesting in her descriptions and she possessed a thorough knowledge of the city's musical history. We will highly recommend this tour to anyone who is in Memphis.

I am from here, and my date has lived here for well over a decade ~ but we learned more on this tour about Memphis music history than we'd been exposed to all along. The tour was thoroughly entertaining, enjoyable, educational ... our guide, "Memphis Jones," was very knowledgable about Memphis music history and was able to convey interesting information in an entertaining way. We are definitely going to take any out-of-towners who visit us on this same tour whenever they come into town. I very enthusiastically recommend this tour as a great way to learn and enjoy oneself doing so!!

I love tours of this nature that provides interesting facts that you would not find in a book. Brad, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about providing us the information. He had a good audience as everyone was involved in the singing. He even recognized us later that evening at the Blues City Cafe and called us by name. I will definitely recommend this tour to others I know who will be visiting Memphis. Also, Howard was a great driver!

We took the Mojo tour whilst staying in Memphis and were a bit dubious at first but actually loved every minute of it and would recommend it highly to anyone visiting. The information provided by our guide was very good and gave you an insight into the musical roots of the city.

A Must In Memphis!

This tour was a great way to familiarize ourselves with Memphis but mostly focused on the rich musical history it possesses. It was interactive, fun and informational. Our guide was knowledgeable, had a great personality and made the trip that much more worth it. This is a tour that is fun for all ages and you don't have to be a music fanatic to appreciate it. I definitely recommend this tour!

This turned out to be a great way to get familiar with the city as we were going to be walking around by ourselves. I was able to get comfortable with the city without looking lost as I had my teenage daughter with me. The lady we had was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Very glad we did this tour.
