MJ (Memphis Jones) is the tour. His wealth of music knowledge as well as his comedic personality was worth every dime!!! The time went so fast, would have loved an extra half hour.

I have taken a number of out of town guests on Backbeat Tours. It is a great way to show someone Memphis and even works for families with kids. I would highly recommend these tours

Then take this tour. My husband and I were skeptical of taking a bus tour. Boy, were we surprised. The young man, Jake, is very knowledgable of the local history. Everyone thinks of Memphis and they think of ELVIS. We learned alot more than Elvis on our trip. We are already planning to go back to Memphis and see the things that we didn't have time to elaborate on. Thanks a million

An Entertaining Tour

The Backbeat Tour was an entertaining way to hear about the music history of Memphis. The tour guide was engaging, funny, and knowledgeable. Since we had visited the Stax Museum, Sun Studio, and Rock and Soul Museum the day before our tour, the information was not new to was simply presented in a different way. I also expected to hear more about the history of the city, beyond its musical roots, but the focus was clearly on Memphis' musical history. I would recommend this tour as a good introduction to the City's musical history.

Very Entertaining

My family enjoyed the tour but had hoped to hear more about some of the african american singers. 90% of the tour was based on the Caucasian singers, we had a chance to tour Graceland and learned a lot about Elvis Presley and then learned the same things on the Mojo Tour. We would love for the tour to be 50/50.

A fun way to see the city

We chose this tour specifically for the musical element, and we weren't disappointed. The tour consisted of the guide talking about the history of specific places and people, then singing songs in between stops. It was a great intro to Memphis in general; we got more than a few ideas of things to do after our tour. Since it's in a air conditioned, covered bus, it's also a great rainy day activity.

The best time in Memphis!

We took the Memphis Mojo tour with our kids, ages 11 and 15. Our tour guide Jay was funny, insightful, and really knew the history of the tour stops. The tour stops at various spots through town and a lot of what you learn are the not so well known facts, the real gems about the people. This trip is a blast, if you don't enjoy it, you don't have a pulse!
