Don't leave Memphis without taking this tour. Memphis Jones was our "host" and was delightful, funny, talented and knowledgeable. You could tell he loves his music and this city. He had a lot of fun music and historical facts that he shared. Tambourines and egg shakers were passed out on the bus along with the invitation to join in on the singing. I could think of at least 5 people back home (Chicago) that would immensely enjoy this tour.

A tour like no other!

This was a great fun tour! A really great start to our visit to Memphis! We were shown all around the places in Memphis which were of interest musically and historically accompanied by Brad who is an accomplished and enthusiastic musician who plays in local clubs. He handed round percussion instruments to all on the bus and we all joined in with appropriate songs as we passed by places of interest! At the end we all felt uplifted and happy to have taken part in in this very lively experience! Would definately recommend this tour!

Best part of Memphis!

I took this tour with my mom and sister on our recent trip to Memphis. The tour was by far the best part of our trip. The tickets were easy to book (we booked online) and the meet-up location was simple to find. Upon arriving we were immediatly greeted and told when the bus would pick us up-Great customer service. We had just enough time to grab an frozen 'adult' beverage before boarding. Once on the bus we met the band and were given instruments to play along with. Our tour guide was awesome! He made the tour fun for everyone on the bus and even let me have a bongo solo! I definately recommend this tour, so grab your bongos and a "Call a Cab" and get on the bus!

Entertaining & Informative

It was a fun way to see the highlights without getting on/off the bus. Entertainer was informative and music a good background. Felt a bit too many details on the black individuals in Memphis who were friendfs with our entertainer. Would recommend though and am considering a group in Spring 2013.

Mojo Tour was the highlight of our Memphis trip!

Booked this tour based on the reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed! Very entertaining, enjoyed to musical accompaniment and all the historical and interesting tidbits that were shared.

The bus was full; my only complaint is that I was seated over the rear wheel well (the "hump"); I'm tall, and so my knees were bent up to my chin. We were the last ones to board, so we had no other choice in seating. I'd suggest that they don't consider that seat a "viable seat" when booking.

A great, entertaining way to see Memphis

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Mojo tour (which included the Sun Studio tour). In addition to seeing many of the sites of the city, our tour guide ("Memphis Jones") did a great job of getting our small tour group involved in the music and was extremely entertaining, both in terms of his stories and his musical performances.

We highly recommend taking one of the Mojo tours.

Great tour brings Memphis to life

I was visiting family in Memphis and looking for a tour to show my wife and son more about Memphis' history. A friend had recommended Backbeat Tours some years ago, and this was an opportunity to try it out. The tour was perfect, and I was even surprised how much I learned even after growing up in Memphis. Our tour guide, Dylan, did a tremendous job, getting the whole bus into the mood with funny stories and foot-stomping music. I will recommend the tour to anyone else going to Memphis.
