This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. The guide, Gary, was very entertaining and well informed. If you're in Memphis you must take this tour.

The highlight of our stay in Memphis.

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

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 !!

A musical history tour!!!

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.

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!

The musical element of this tour was great fun I was rattling my shaker & tapping my feet along with the rest of the bus!

Until I came to Memphis & visited the Sun studios & toured round I didn't relise how much blues/soul music I'd heard before & really enjoyed. It is amazing how anyone could produce such great music with such limited resources compared with todays mixing desks, but they did. You can stand where Elvis stood & imagine you are close.

This was our third Backbeat tour over a four year period,each one has been fantastic. These are are really great value tours and from the time you get on the bus until you get off you are entertained & treated like welcome friends.We have had Memphis Jones twice now and he is great ,he certainly know all there is to know about Memphis & the music scene + more. This really is a great way to see parts of Memphis you wouldn`t get to see on you own, plus (its fun fun fun) So if you are off to Memphis (you lucky people) book this tour NOW !!!!
