Liked the history about the Memphis area of all the singers and record producers. Intresting facts about their early lives, how they got started and where they lived.

Really fun but light on information

The tour guide was very entertaining and talented. It could have been better if he'd provided more facts/history/information. Very enjoyable but not so educational...

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.

HIghlight of our road trip

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!

A great way to see Memphis

Not just anyone can ride backwards on a bus whilst playing a guitar, singing and providing interesting historical snippets. I don't know how they found such amazing tour guides, but they did an amazing job. l can't deny that l shamelessly joined in with some of the great music and was left marvelling at the range and quality of music to come out of Memphis. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
