Our guide was Memphis Jones and he brought the history of Memphis music alive with his renditions of the many songs he performed while narrating the tour. We were accomanied by our 14 year old grandson and his friend. They were actively involved with each song and greatly enjoyed the information given about the people and music of Memphis (the city). We would definitely do the tour again

My friends and my husband and myself were visiting from South Carolina. We chose the Mojo tour in an attempt to learn what activities we would like to pursue in Memphis. The tour was educational and entertaining. The guide was a talented musician and something of a comedian. We enjoyed his descriptions of the musical history of Memphis and many musicians.

We really enjoyed our Backbeat Best of Memphis tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided unique insights to Memphis' music history and well as personal experiences that really wow'ed us. We also enjoyed his music knowledge -- history and ability to perform in the middle of the tour. What a wonderful experience. This tour was recommended by a friend who recently moved away from Memphis, and I'm very glad she gave us the tip! Highly recommend this tour!

We truly enjoyed the Memphis MoJo Tour!! Our guide was great. He was very knowlegable. Our kids really liked it, they learned a lot about the history of music in Memphis. They didn't realize that some of the songs they know today come from years ago.

The Mojo tour was one of the best tours I have ever been on, so entertaining and just perfect for Memphis. I loved that the bus was on the smaller side, which made the tour seem more intimate. Both the bus driver and Eric, our Mojo tour guide, were friendly and knowledgeable, and extremely funny. I know there are people that don't believe in tours, but all I can say is BELIEVE! I highly recommend this tour.

Jake was awesome! Our group wasn't a particularly "active" group, but Jake didn't let that bother him. He is an incredible musician and really told some good stories, wonderfully punctuated with his terrific song renditions! A lot of fun! My teenagers didn't quite appreciate all of it, but they had a decent time, even playing bongos.

Wonderfully enjoyable, a fun 90 minutes

The guide on the bus was a talented musician with wonderful stories and information about the places we were seeing, and the driver was patient and careful in dealing with the surrounding (sometimes manic) traffic and driving conditions. The guide obviously enjoyed providing information and interacting with the other passengers, and everyone on the bus enjoyed his presentation, music, and anecdotes. The mix of young and older folks all got into the spirit of the Memphis music scene and everyone sang along with the classic music the guide provided, plus the amount of information he delivered in 90 minutes was incredible - what amazing energy!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone, with or without kids and/or "significant other", who is interested in seeing some of the historic musical landmarks and learning a bit about their history. A+ and kudos for the Memphis Mojo Tour.
