Had a Great Time, Learned A lot

There is not much to say other than this tour was well worth the price. The bus was comfortable, our tour guide was great, got to see a lot of stuff that you probably wouldn't see on your own or even know about, like the apartment where Elvis first lived in when he moved to Memphis. Got a fantastic history lesson interspered with music. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Just wish I had extended it to include the tour of Sun Studio

The driver and musician, Brad, did a superb job of navigating the streets and history of Memphis. Brad not only entertained us with interactive music, he was a wealth of information and pointed out so many things we might have otherwise missed if we were on our own. After the tour we went back to several sites. We signed up for the 1 1/2 hour tour, but wished we had taken the three hour tour. We especially liked the vintage bus!

Fun, but we wanted more

We took the shorter bus tour, and although our guide was informative and entertaining, we wanted more and wished we had booked the longer tour so we could have toured Stax Records. Thought we might get down that way on our own, but looks like that will be on the agenda for our next trip to Memphis.

There were 4 of us and we all loved the Backbeat Tours! We laughed, sang, clapped, whistled and smiled the entire 1.5 hours! We would do it again in a heartbeat! Money well worth spent! Memphis Jones was the best!!!!

This tour was so much fun! Our tour guide, Memphis Jones, kept the music rolling and provided us with lots of interesting stories about Memphis and it's famous musicians. We got a great overview of the city and were able to deside what we wanted to see more in depth. I would highly recommend this tour as the first stop on your itenerary.

My husband is a keyboard player, so I thought this would be a good tour for him. If you love music, and music is why you've come to Memphis, I highly recommend this tour. I would add that it is the ONLY tour I have ever signed up for, because in general we prefer to explore cities on our own. It was really alot of fun.

Fun and Informative

The tour was the highlight of our visit to Memphis. Our tour guide and resident musician Memphis Jones was talented, knowledgeable and very personable and interactive with the tourists. Our driver was also very skillful in navigating us around the city whom our tour guide noted had the worst drivers in the world. I would take the tour again if i return to Memphis.
