We were fortunate enough to get Memphis Jones as our tour guide and he was so energetic, talented, entertaining and knowledgeable in a very non-tour guide kind of way. He didn't recite memorized history - he knew it and you could tell he loved it and was excited about it. It was great to join him in his music with the rhythm shakers and tambourines and it made it a lively and fun way to learn more about Memphis and the music that has come out of that city.

Great time! My wife and I both enjoyed the Mojo Bus Tour. The employees were all enthusiastic, fun, & friendly. The tickets were well worth the price.

We learned a lot about the Memphis music industry. We saw all the main historical venues. It was the shortest 1 1/2 hours of our vacation (meant in a good way).

If possible. please extend my thanks to the entire organization.

Our tour guide was Memphis Jones. He handed out tamborines and shaker eggs and we had a great time enjoying the music that he played during the very informative and entertaining tour. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour of the musical roots of Memphis. Jason was our tour guide/entertainment. As we passed locations of interest - Where early performers lived and recorded - Elvis; BB King; etc, Jason wailed the related songs and played his guitar. He was good enough that I would pay to hear him sing in concert.

Learned a lot on a rainy day

I had booked in advance, and by chance it turned out to be pretty rainy on that day. Riding around on a bus while learning about the history of Memphis Blues was the perfect activity. The host was very knowledgeable and talented, and got a good rhythm section going on the bus. Recommended.

Great musical history tour

Great interactive tour of Memphis' musical history sites. Very entertaining guide-who shared a lot of musical trivia. I learned quite a bit about Memphis - both music and history. Probably not something I'd do again, but I'm glad that I did it once.

Fun and interesting

The tour was a great way to spend a few hours one morning. The musical based tour was far more interesting than just riding on a bus being talked at.
