The very best thing we did in Memphis!

Our guide Memphis Jones was so involved into the musical and historical elements of Memphis that he made us feel like were literally driving through that history and music. We enjoyed the restored bus but it was the genuine love of the Memphis musical experience that exuded from our guide that made the tour magic.

We had a wonderful time, we would recommend it highly to everyone. Tour guide was funny and chatty but not obnoxiously so. He shared a lot of information that I was not aware before the tour. Bus was clean and comfortably cool.

This bus tour was so much fun! It traveled throughout Memphis sharing hot spots in Memphis music history. Our tour guide, aptly named Memphis, was phenomenal. He was a great singer and knew all the tidbits of information. I would highly recommend this tour--five stars to Miss Clawdy and her gang!

Brad was great. Funny and quick on his feet. I can't believe the tour was an hour and a half. We were having so much fun that time flew. Will make sure to have all our friends and family that visit do at least one tour!

We enjoyed the bus trip tremendously. We had already visited a number of the sites on the tour, but the stories and songs really tied things together.

Memphis Jones was our guide, he was funny and a very good musician. We had a great time, all five of us. Would like to take the walking tour also.

The history of Memphis music in a nutshell

My family and I enjoyed the tour very much. We especially liked learning about all of the different types of music that have their roots in Memphis. The tour guide was very interesting and funny! My seven-year-old daughter really loved playing music along with the tour guide. We got to see many neat sites of Memphis that we would not have been able to find on our own. We highly recommend this tour because it is fun for the whole family.

Air conditioner on bus did not work.

It was 99 degrees outside and the air conditioner on the bus did not work. This made for a miserable ride.

The Memphis Mojo Tour Not to be Missed!

Our Group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the Memphis Mojo Tour. The Tour Guide, Karen Apple was an amazing guide and singer. She was so interesting in her descriptions and she possessed a thorough knowledge of the city's musical history. We will highly recommend this tour to anyone who is in Memphis.

Surprisingly un-cheesy and thoroughly enjoyable!

I am from here, and my date has lived here for well over a decade ~ but we learned more on this tour about Memphis music history than we'd been exposed to all along. The tour was thoroughly entertaining, enjoyable, educational ... our guide, "Memphis Jones," was very knowledgable about Memphis music history and was able to convey interesting information in an entertaining way.

We are definitely going to take any out-of-towners who visit us on this same tour whenever they come into town. I very enthusiastically recommend this tour as a great way to learn and enjoy oneself doing so!!
