Enthusiastic tour guide, interesting information

There was a lot of interesting information about the music history of the area, and of course Memphis has a ton of history! Our guide was resourceful when his guitar amp. hook-up broke, and quickly got things back in order. Our guide entertained us with many songs along the way. Driving around Memphis, you get a feeling for how economically depressed the area is. Only drawback was that it was a 90+ degree day, and the bus was very hot with minimally effective AC. Nice intro to the city--I would suggest doing this on the first day of a first visit as a starting point to see what you might like to investigate in greater detail later.

My husband and I truly enjoyed this tour. It was fun, entertaining, and full of great information and music. The guide was notch. He was very knowledgeable and made sure to include others into the conversation. The 90 minute tour flies by and it puts you into a great Memphis mood. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our family enjoyed every moment of our tour! We learned a lot of local tidbits and saw sights that we would never have known about if it weren't for the tour. Our guide was great! The tour was both of our boys' (14 & 11 y/o) favorite thing on our entire trip.

What a great way to see a little of Memphis. We loved Beale Street. It was a great place to wait for and board the bus. We were completely entertained with information, music and sights for the entire 90 minutes.

The tour was fun and informative...made me realize what I did not know about music I have listened to all my life. Inspired me to learn more about the people responsible for the music and the region that produced so many talented artists.

musical fun on wheels

A great way to learn about the great musicians who made memphis what it is - Jake was enthusiastic about his subject which is not just musicians but the city itself.

A great introduction with small groups keeps it personal and the stories he shares are delivered in a way that the information stays in your mind. Highly reccomended and a complete contrast to the herding instinct of the Graceland experience!
