History Comes Alive

I was disappointed that the bus was not the vintage model featured on their web site, but the tour guide more than made up for it with his performance. I left with a feeling of what it was to live during this era.

A fantastic tour. You learn a lot and have a great time doing it. You can even pack a cooler to bring on the bus with you. Our guide was great - lots of history, music, and personality. Of our party of four, two had never been to Memphis. They were totally amazed and entertained. My wife and I had been on the tour previously (maybe five years ago), and we could not wait to do the tour again and we once again had a great time. You have to do take this tour - it is a blast!!

We had the most marvelous time! Lots of music history and lots of fun! We would recommend this to everyone! A total different view of Memphis! The staff was fantastic! If I had to tell people to do one thing when in Memphis, this would be it!

The Mojo tour is an entertaining and informative tour of many Memphis highlights. I would have marked 5 stars had the tour been on the usual Mojo bus, but apparently the bus was in the shop, and our tour had to be taken on a standard "for hire" small tour bus... I think that disrupted the trip a bit. But the guide was great- a good singer and knowledgeable/friendly.

One of the best tours ever!

My family had not heard about the Memphis Mojo Tour until my wife picked up a brochure from the Peabody Hotel (we were watching the procession of ducks from the indoor pond...what a hoot!).

It was amazing, we were running a few minutes late and the tour accomodated us, by holding the bus until we arrived. We were then treated to what can only be best described as a rollicking concert an hour and a half long, by the one and only Memphis Jones, who entertained, informed and sang his way around the musical sights of Memphis.

I have never been on a more entertaining tour. Two criticisms....

1. Get the word out...our host in Memphis didn't know about your fabulous tours.

2. It is too cheap!

thank you for a great experience.

The tour was good. It was not the best bus tour I've been on. Most of its charm was due to the fascinating Memphis history. The tour guide had a great singing voice, but seemed a little scattered when talking. I would recommend it to others.
