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!

The tour was well done. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun. He couldn't carry a tune, but it was still a lot of fun. We love hearing about the history of the city and this was real informative. I would've rated it 5 star had I not already done the Sun Studio tour (really great tour) because about 1/3 of the mojo tour was a repeat of the nostalgia we heard at Sun Studio.

Enntertaining, good

Different, creative, good host/guide. The only negative detail that made the tour a bit uncomfortable was the extreme cold temperature inside the bus; specially since it was a very cloudy and rainy day.

It would also have helped if the stop at Sun Studio had been a bit longer. The place was so packed with visitors that it was practically impossible to even buy a hot cup of chocolate or walk to the bathroom.

I was on the mojo tour 2010. A young student, with guitar was our guide. I really enjoyed that and recommended it to my friends. This year, Gary was our guide. His enthusiasm and stories really made the trip great. I believe my friends would definitely take the mojo tour again. They are still talking about it.

This fellow was fantastic. Talented in music as well as a "real people" guide.

He MADE the tour.

I don't know what his plans are after he graduates, but I would hope you could keep him on even if casual.

The tour guide was kind and talented, the bus was retro-cool, and the information provided on the tour was a fascinating overview of Memphis' cultural history. I recommend Memphis Mojo to anyone visiting Memphis. It is a fun and interesting way to get an overview of the downtown/midtown area, and then, if desired, you can decide which sites to return to and explore in more depth on your own time.

It was great fun, fun to be a tourist in your own town, recommend all to try it. The really cool thing is you can take a cooler and you get to play tamborines!!! Our guide was great and very informative. Normally I am not big on the tourist traps but very happy I took a chance. One thing, you need to put the number on the bus.

The Best Tour of Memphis
Thu, Sep 4, 14   11:30 AM monkeybrogan Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Katherine was a real gem of a guide... this was our first day in Memphis so we thought we would take a tour to get ourselves acquainted with the city. We are so happy we picked the Mojo tour. Katherine delivered information about the city in such a charismatic and uncluttered way that we were able to remember everything she said. We found ourselves saying 3 days later, whilst on other tours, "Katherine told us that!"

Combined with the singing and participation we felt really well looked after, educated and really positive about our stay in Memphis that was ahead of us.

Bravo, a really great product, really well delivered.
