I had planned to tour with a different company until I read the reviews at the last minute. Based on the reviews of Back Beat Tours, I changed my mind and I'm so glad I did! It could not have been a better experience from the friendly guy at the ticket booth, to the driver, to the tour guide. They were very professional and there was no wasted time. It was really informative, the bus was comfortable, and we had a great time! We plan to do another (different) tour next time. I can't recommend this tour company highly enough.

We thought the tour was very well-done. Our tour guide, Nancy, was very knowledgeable. She kept us all entertained with her stories and music. Although we used to live in Memphis, we learned things about the city and its musical heritage.

Memphis Jones was our tour guide and he was VERY passionate about his love of Memphis (especially the music history). The 2 hours were enjoyable from start to finish. We didn't want it to end. We felt like memphis could talk (his 100 mile an hour style) for about 10 hours straight. Highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour - our tour guide Memphis Jones was a fine storyteller not to mention an excellent musician. We loved this tour and have no hesitation in reccommending it to any visitor to Memphis.

The mood was relaxed, the music was so good that we would have gone to see the musician again (but timing of our trip didn't allow for that), and we learned a lot about the history of Memphis and its music. The information went beyond straight history and made some connections as to why things happened the way they did and what influenced the development of the area and of the music. GREAT TOUR!

The bus tour was great

The tour guide was very friendly, giving a lot of Memphis history, while he was playing and singing a lot of rock & roll, jazz etc. music. We enjoyed the trip very much. The hour and a half went by very fast and we all had a great time singing along etc. If you like music and also want to get some history of Memphis on the way, I would highly recommend taking the tour.

Time flew by on the Memphis Mojo tour. The music was terrific and the commentary was absolutely fascinating. Not like any tour I've ever taken. My husband and I enjoyed it immensely.

Best tour ever made!

Booked the tour via internet because it sounds interesting and I didn't know where to go in Memphis. Could do this by our own, but it's a long work and for sure we will miss some interesting places. So we went at 10 a.m. to the bus at Beale Street. Not much people there but they start the tour nevertheless with full enthusiasm.

First they give us some music instruments telling that we are part of the tour. I never had so much fun on a sightseeing tour. I actually was part of the tour and more: I felt like a part of Memphis.

The tour guide ("Memphis Jones") was like an almanach of all the interesting things happend in Memphis. For every little story he knows he sings a song. Tremendous job! Carry on, Memphis Jones!

There was a new bus driver, who misses the way in two situation, but it was our luck! Memphis Jones thanked him for taking a detour, and on this additional way we saw and heard even more storys. Memphis Jones told us, that we became a very special tour. It was pure fun.

If I would come another time to Memphis, I definitively would take a tour by backbeat tours, I can tell you.

So, thank you so much for the nice day and all the informations you gave us, it blew my mind. It was the best sightseeing tour I ever made!

Take care
