Musical twist on the usual city tour.

We love to aquaint ourselves in a new city by taking a short tour. This gives us an overview of the city and allows us to focus our time by spending more or less time at some of the attractions in town. Backbeat Mojo Tour did just that PLUS entertained us along the way. The woman singer was terrific (and the three of us in our group are singers as well, so we appreciated knowing more about the music scene in Memphis), well informed about the city sites and handled difficult topics such as race relations, the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and segregation with compassion, care, and historical accuracy. We'd highly recommend this tour.

We can't speak highly enough of the BackBeat tour we did during our visit to Memphis. We had the most fun, hardly noticed that 90 minutes had passed, and aside from the fact that we had physically got off the bus to visit Sun studios, one could be forgiven for not noticing that we had left Beale St. Our guide, Memphis Jones, rocks - his knowledge was superb, his singing swiftly contagious and his personality simply wonderful. We have already told most of our friends about this tour, and will continue to do so. Awesome - don't change.

We decided to go on the tour while we were in Memphis, it was a Very Good Decision on our part. It was entertaining the whole way. Everyone got involved and if you chose not to get involed you sure got good entertainment. Also they told you about places in the city and historial information, I was with my famliy whos ages ranged from 16-70 and they all really enjoyed it!

Don't skip this tour!

The tour combined information about Memphis music history with performance that brought it to life. Also, the pace of the tour was "just right".

We had no idea what this would be like but we were in for a GREAT time!! We actually had a private tour due to cancellations which surprised us that the company didn't re-schedule our family!! The host, Memphis Jones, is a definite asset and needs a raise!! (He did not say to say that). He seemed to have somewhat of a program but then seemed to tailor it to fit us. We learned about music history, heard some great music sung by Memphis, saw some history of Memphis and learned some life lessons also. By the end of the tour, we were all laughing and singing along with the music. On this vacation, we stayed 3 days in Memphis and 4 in Nashville-the whole family agreed this was the best thing we did!!

I don't know if we will ever go back to Memphis but if we do, we will be on the bus!!! And will definitely tell others!
