Memphis Jones makes Backbeat Tour a blast!

Memphis Jones was the passionate guitar-playing, history spewing, crazy funny, good-smelling musician that accompanied us on our non-traditional bus tour of Memphis. He told us things we would never have known except for his extensive knowledge of local history. He sang, told corny jokes and smelled good, too! We are so glad we chose this for our one tour of Memphis! Bus was AC and comfy, bring your tall beer or margarita, tambourines and settle in for a fun time!

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!
