This was our second visit and our second tour. Everyone was looking forward to the Mojo bus tour and we were not disappointed. We learned some history and were entertained as well. Our group had an age range from 6 to 66 and we all had fun. Keep up the great work guys!

We started our trip to Memphis with the Mojo tour. It was a great way to learn about Memphis music history. Loved our host and busdriver! We all sang and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this tour to a family with children. We had a short stop at Sun studios which was great for the kids. We plan on doing this again with our extended family.

We loved our tour and musician. It was fun and informative. Our 9 & 10 year old grand-daughters said it was the best tour we did during our week long vacation. The old tour bus made it even more special.

Thoroughly enjoyed the MOJO tour even though it started out a little wet. (air conditioner condenser dumped water on a couple in our group). Jake Fly was very entertaining and informative and the tour seemed to go by way too fast.

Without Shikinah's, great singing voice and wonderful personally, with good stories, I would have asked for my money back. Sorry to say there were no points of interest and felt the time and money was not well spent.

Rocking good time

This tour was so much fun: a lot of singing along and interesting facts. Memphis Jones, the tour guide, is terrific at what he does. The blues, soul and early rock music brings the group together and helps make the whole adventure more memorable. I would definitely recommend it, especially to those who are old enough to know the music and enjoy it.

I am so glad we took this tour. Many times I am leary of " touristy " type tours that are too "cheesy" but this one measured up to my expectations and beyond. It was a very enjoyable time. Memphis Jones knows his history and music! Don't hesitate to take the Memphis Mojo Tour! You won't be disappointed if you get Memphis Jones for your guide!

I recommended this to a local, who was surprised we were so delighted with it. I hope he takes the tour and then brings all his out of town guests!

The only negative was during the one stop we made, it was not long enough for us all to use the "facilities". So I would not necessarily bring anything to eat or drink next time!

Excellent tour guide, a young lady, Shinika(?), who was a fantastic musician, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable about music and it's history. I would have liked a bit more information about some of the areas we were driving through. She told us about the significant spots, elvis childhood home, Johnny's home, location of studio's, etc., but we drove around a lot without anything being pointed out. She did entertain us with lots of music of the stars and was very good. Just a bit too much riding and not enough information. The entertainment was fun though!
