Wonderful!

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.

On the trip home we decided this was the thing we liked best about our trip...this bus ride!

It was very informative and so much fun! We learned a lot of things about Memphis that we never knew. Learned a lot about Elvis, Johnny Cash and others. It was so interesting.

The other passengers were older than my group of 4- forty year olds and they weren't too into the fun like my group was, but oh well. We made our own fun!!!! Having the tambourines and bongos available was the bomb! We couldn't stop laughing and smiling the whole time. Our entertainer really worked well off the crowd and was able to quip back with some good comebacks...he was very funny and a great sport.

I'd do this again in a heartbeat.

Graceland VIP Tour - $35/person

Memphis Mojo Tour - Priceless!!

Old or young, the Mojo Tour is worth the price of admission. Let loose and sing along to great music and learn a bunch about a cool city. I was skeptical before booking the tour, but our experience was on par with the other great reviews for these guys!

The tour guide was fantastic (Miss Apple). Talking about the music of Memphis to us was like putting us back in time and feeling the music as it developed. We learned things we never knew. It was wonderful. Highly recommend it to everyone.

We toured with Katherine and couldn't have been happier. She entertained us her great voice and encouraged everyone to join in. She knew her local lore, and kept us interested with several anticdotes. She mixed things up with a variety of songs and artists. Katherine mentioned that she paid her way through college and was planning on getting her master's! The tour bus was also very nice, with comfortable seats, easy views and great working a/c. Well worth the price!

We loved Memphis Jones and the great tour/performance he gave us. We were doubly pleased when he took us to Graceland. He is a real asset.
