A musical history tour!!!
Wed, Aug 17, 11   10:30 AM Mvanberlo Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I'm an Elvis fan and have been several times in Memphis. Of course I have visited Graceland and have enjoyed the Sun studios. However, I have never visited the places in Memphis where Elvis lived and where his career started. A tour is not one of my favorite activities but I participated in a tour with Backbeat Tours. Now I can say that this trip was the highlight of my visit in August 2011. The warming up in the bus was fantastic and from the beginning I was in a good mood. I never thought to play in a bus with a tambourine and a egg shaker singing along with songs from the past. The tour was a mix of facts, musical highlights (the guide was a wonderful singer!) and entertainment. In short: a great happening that gives me again some extra memories of Elvis and Memphis!!!!!!!

The tour guide made the experience memorable. His guitar playing and knowledge was commendable. He had a friendly manner and we truly had value for money. Would recommend this tour highly.

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.

I have been on a few ghost tours around the world, in Scotland, Sydney and London prior to this tour in Memphis. Backbeat tours have been the best organized and most entertaining tour I have been on.

Entertaining, right mix of facts and humour

Loved it. Interesting facts about the city from a local and you got to hear new trivia about the stars. Also he does an excellent Johnny Cash cover

Outstanding knowledge, humour and music!

Brandon Cunning was our guide. Fanstastic! His knowledge about the music of Memphis was staggeringly good. His playing and singing totally rocked! He encouranged us to accompany him for every song (which was note perfect!) We had "special" attention as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Brandon made us feel more than welcome. In summary - dont miss up the chance to be informed AND enterntained!

Was an awesome tour...learnt and seen lots that we had no idea of before!! The music/tour guide was great...loved the tunes and daughter enjoyed playing the tamborine!! The only complaint that I have is that they need air conditioning on the was a bit uncomfortable. Would totally recommend this tour to anyone that I know is going to see the real Memphis!!

Thoroughly entertaining and informative.

As two ladies of a certain age (admitting to over 60!!) we were entertained throughout the trip with the music and anecdotes of our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed participating in the singsong and learnt a lot about Memphis' music connections apart from Elvis.

A seriously brilliant "musical" tour of Memphis. Naturally you won't get all the detail in two hours, but as a primer for the Music of Memphis this takes some beating. And it will take you to spots that you might not otherwise know about/visit (especially if you are in Memphis without a car).

The music and rapport were excellent.

We didn't know what to expect but a tour of the sites with some good Memphis music sounds and an informed guide was a novel and enjoyable experience. The Guide/ Musician was very talented and had an excellent rapport with both the Driver and fellow passengers. The route taken was equally inspired and gave us an indication of other places to visit. One slight criticism was that we would have preferred slightly more information and slightly less music to get a better feel for the City but overall good value for money.

Memphis Jones is a LEGEND!!
Sat, Jun 11, 11   11:30 AM elvis1914 Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We took the tour with Memphis Jones and had the most wonderful time! He was knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic - in fact everything we were looking for in a Tour Guide. We stopped at all the important sights and saw everything we wanted to see. Mr Jones has a fabulous voice and really communicated his enthusiasm for his subject and the city. I cannot recommend this tour enough and would take it again in a heartbeat (if only I did not live 4000 miles away!).

Highlight - Ernestine & Hazel's

The highlight of the tour was Ernestine & Hazel's - the upstairs area is really spooky and totally looked the part.
