Too much of the same thing
Sat, Nov 5, 11   8:00 PM railenet Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The concept of the tour appealed to me and I was really excited. After the first hour the novelty wore off. Possibly it was the guide, who may not have had the "knack" for telling a good ghost story, nor was she really interested in whether people had "orbs" on their cameras or not. One of the "key" stops on the tour we were not taken to as the venue had a private function on - which is fine except the Guide didn't tell us it wasn't until the end of the tour when another guest questioned why we weren't going. So being up front would have been the honest thing to do. I was genuinely disappointed. And if you seriously work with spirit, then there was nothing to see.

Great Musical Memphis Tour
Wed, Oct 26, 11   1:30 PM Elainecox Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Tour leader, Gary Hardy , takes you on a musical tour of the Memphis with a great voice and enthusiasm. He knows the history of the industry having been in it for years and his love of the music shines through. I read the reviews on trip adviser before I left on my tour from New Zealand, and booked then and was so glad I did as this really was atour with a real difference and made Memphis come to life,.

Gary Hart, fantastic

I was on the mojo tour 2010. A young student, with guitar was our guide. I really enjoyed that and recommended it to my friends. This year, Gary was our guide. His enthusiasm and stories really made the trip great. I believe my friends would definitely take the mojo tour again. They are still talking about it.

The highlight of our stay in Memphis.
Sun, Oct 9, 11   10:30 AM caroljillins Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I booked this tour not knowing quite what to expect and it was the highlight of our stay! I think we were lucky to have Garry Hardy as our guide. Having been born and bred in Memphis he was so knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic about his subject. He is also a very accomplished singer and guitar player and entertained us throughout the tour. A bus ride has never been such fun! The guide at Sun Studios was also brilliant and the tour was fascinating. In the evening (Sunday) we returned to the cafe where the tour started to listen to Garry some more and enjoyed the Ribs there. Thank You! Carol Jillins

We had a great few hours rocking along in the ol' bus with Memphis Jones as our expert & enthusiastic tour guide. This guy certainly knows his stuff and is very entertaining with it! Certainly one of the best tours that we did in America. Adrienne & Greg Youd from Perth, Australia.

Fantastic Musical History

We were thrilled with the musical adventure tour that Gary took us on - he had a wealth of insider knowledge concerning the City's musical history, and general history, and the wider social context that envelopes these topics, that we very much appreciated! A wonderful, musical, educational 2 hrs about Memphis, home of the blues and birthplace of rock and roll!

Memphis Jones was Great

We loved this tour. Memphis Jones was awesome,, he provided great music and so much informative facts on the Blues Music roots of Memphis. He made the tour so enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to everyone who visits Memphis. It truly gives you the information to understand how Memphis is the home of the Blues. And you will have so much fun singing along with Memphis Jones. It is just a really good time !!

Lively Tour

Informative singer who told us about the history of Memphis and played/sang songs as an aid to the history. The songs were well sung and provided not just entertainment but an insight to how the music developed. Most enjoyable.

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.
