This was absolutely the best tour we we have ever been on. It met all of our expectations. Fun, fun, fun. My husband is a musician, and since the literature said to bring instruments, he did. It was a great opportunity for him to jam with one of memphis's top players.

Quirky, Upbeat Tour

This was recommended by our son and daughter-in law as an unusual and fun activity. There was a very personable driver and guide/musician. Lots of enthusiasm, music and interaction with group. We rode an old school bus with air, but it was a very hot day and still a little warm. Suggest you take some water along. Definitely saw parts of the city we would not have visited on our own.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the Memphis Mojo Music Bus Tour. Our tour guide had grown up in Memphis and had deep roots there and personal experiences to share. He had a great singing voice too! His commentary was not only informative, it was very entertaining.

Dont Miss the Mojo Tour with Kathryn

The Mojo Bus Tour was the highlight of our three day trip to Memphis! Our tour guide was Kathryn Brawley who educated us on the music and history of Memphis and it's colorful characters. Kathryn also performed a number of songs in between sharing facts and legends of this great town. She is a talented musician and singer and expert on Memphis. There is much to see and do in Memphis including Graceland, Sun Studios, National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, and the Stax Museum of Soul. Add in great food and the Beale Street music scene, it's a great place for a long weekend. The Mojo bus tour tied it all together and Kathryn as an entertaining and delighful host!

This is a musical tour of Memphis - the tour guide is a musician who plays instruments and sings songs by early Memphis artists. Very entertaining. I enjoyed the tour.

Awesome Trip

From the moment we met the guide at the ticket office it was fun (i can't remember his name, it might have been Joe, he was a music student who wanted his own music studio). Anyhow, he enthusiastically entertained and informed us all along this trip even his jokes were not that bad even though he denied this. Those who wanted to play along were given tambourines-shakers and bongo drums to join in with the songs.

Overall i would recommend this trip to anyone of all ages. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Tour

The tour is about the musical history of Memphis. Even thought I grew up in Memphis, most of the information was new to me. The best part of the experience is the singing of the tour guide as he illustrated the musical tradition. All of us thought this tour was worth the time and the cost.
