I only live an hour and a half from Memphis and have spent an unusual amount of time in Memphis, yet had never done this tour. Actually, I thought it would be kind of lame, for somewhat of a local, to spend the time and money. Only after I saw their high rating on Trip Advisor, did I suggest to my wife that we should do the tour and it was the highlight of our recent time on Beale Street.

Memphis Jones was our entertainer/tour guide. He knew the history of the Memphis area and was one of the more gifted entertainers I have seen anywhere ... not to mention, just flat out personable. If you have doubt about doing the Mojo Tour ... go ahead and jump on board ... you should have a blast!

The tour was a fun-filled road trip of information and music. It was a wonderful combination. We purchased the available cd and have played it many times! It always brings back good memories of a good Memphis experience!

This was a good tour, but I would have liked if we had visited all the locations that were listed in the advertisement...although we didn't, I would still recommend the tour. The tour guide, Memphis Jones, was hilarious!

We really enjoyed the experience. Our tour guide, Tennessee Tom, was very knowledgeable and a good musician. The concept allowed us to be entertained by local music and learn about the history of the city and it's music. What a great idea!

Memphis Jones and the team took us on a ride thru Memphis and it came alive for us. It was a blast and I'm getting my mom tickets for her birthday celebration!

What a great tour! And what a great young tourguide, who's name i didn't catch but who stole our hearts with fun, facts and so much effort and passion.

There is only one downside to this tour, and that is the length. If it took more than one and a half hours, you could get to see a bit more than just a glimpse of the site where Martin Luther King was assinated, and more than a glimpse of the house of Johnny Cash and the Sun Studio. It's the only reason i couldn't give five stars out of five. This tour really should drive on all day.

But it's a small thing when you have so much fun. Indeed, the audience ends up to be the backing band of the singing tourguide, which is a great concept. It is a brilliant idea to get people involved, even if it's in such a modest way. Memphis is so full of music, from Elvis to Stax, to hear all of those stories in such a fun environment is just wonderful.
