Memphis is Music

This tour is for music lovers of all ages. Brad, our singing guide, gave us music and an interesting look into what makes Memphis, Memphis. We visited the important historical places with Brad's interesting commentary. The tour of Sun Studio was fascinating. Imagine standing in the very spot were so many legends recorded. My husband & I enjoyed it immensely. A music lover's must.

The tour guide for our trip was Nancy Apple. She was friendly and informative. However, during the tour, my daughter and I felt like it was more a tour and information about her and her band. So much of what she told us was concerning her band, where they played, when they played, what they played, who they played with and who she has met in the entertainment field, etc. The tour was disappointing also because the bus never stopped for us to get out and take pictures. We just drove right by everything without enough time to even take pictures out of the windows. I had hoped we could have stopped long enough to even jump out for a minute but it wasn't to be. Also, I felt the driver took us through so much of the run-down part of town. Not being familiar with the Memphis area, while on the tour I assumed these were the only roads to get to the places were were going. However, two days later we took another tour ( All Elvis tour ) which went to alot of these same places and the roads this tour took went through beautiful landscaped parks, neighborhoods and areas that were much more pleasant to look at. I do realize that many of the areas of Memphis are old, just like my town and every other town and necessary to travel through to get to certain places but when visitors from other areas come to see Memphis, I just feel like your best foot should be put forward by taking a different route through better areas if possible. After saying this, I need to mention that there were things about the tour that were entertaining and enjoyable but on the whole, the other tours we took were much more pleasant. Memphis is a beautiful city with so much history and gorgeous sites to take in and I sincerely hope to return. Graceland was magnificent and everything I had hoped it would be. Elvis is the best ambassador you could ever have to "sell" your city to others. He still brings in millions of dollars for Memphis every year and you should be so proud to call him a native son. He is the sole reason my family made the trip and I am sure this is true for many other families. Please keep the Mojo tour but if possible, try to allow time to stop occasionally for pictures and to get out of the bus to see the sites better. Also, if your guides could concentrate more on Memphis and less on themselves, I feel it would be better. Thank you for sharing your beautiful city.

It may have started out a bit corny, but it turned out great! The host, Nancy Apple was a pretty good singer and told some very cool stories and trivia about the musical history in Memphis!

This 3hour tour introduced us to a rocking city in both day and night time hours. It was narrated with words and music by a very informative guide. The guide added so much historical fact which made the tour even more interesting. The inclusion of a stop and tour of Sun Studio was an added pleasure. If you're going to Memphis make this tour a must do.

Leaving Beale St on the Memphis Mojo Tour
Thu, Apr 11, 13   11:30 AM Gerrypearson Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
From start to stop we were thoroughly entertained by our tour Guide Kathryn. Celebrating my birthday on a rainy day this was a great way to see the sites that have made Memphis Famous. Gotta give our guide Kathryn special mention as she had our entertained all the time with her beautiful voice and guitar. What was fun about this tour is that she made it personable with side stories about the personalities that have made Memphis Famous. She handed out shakers and tambourines and I even joined her on harmonica as we made our way through on the bus to Sun Studios Graceland, Civil Rights Museum Stax Studios. I would definitely recommend this tour as it was a very pleasant way to visit everywhere that you needed to see in Memphis!

This was a wonderful way to see and learn about the city and history of Memphis. Our guide was a treat and she made it so much fun by playing songs related to the artists we were talking about at the time. She really did a terrific job! I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Memphis. Well worth the cost!
