Must see!

This was an excellent bus tour. The bus was air conditioned and lively. We got to sit and be driven around to see things otherwise we would have not sought out. The guide was a good singer and had so much trivia about the history and places we visited that we never knew or only had heard bits and pieces about previously. I would recommend this tour to anybody wanting to have fun while learning the history of Memphis. Make sure you volunteer to play a tambourine.

My wife and i took my parents on the Mojo tour, and Memphis Jones was our guide. He was GREAT! Not only

did he tell us the history of memphis, he got the whole bus involved and we just loved every minute of it. It was

the fastest 2 hrs, we wish it was 4. He sang songs, told jokes. You can tell he enjoyed himself, i've been on

tours where it is scripted and you can't wait for it to be over. Well this is not the case at all. We came home and told our daughters and they want to go. So the next time we come down from Indiana we will most definately

do it again.

Informative Music History Tour of Memphis

We recommend this tour to everybody with an interest in Memphis music whether it be the Blues or Elvis and everything inbetween. Our guide for our trip was 'Memphis' Jones, a guitarist with a great passion for all the music from the city. The tour was extremely informative with stops at the Sun Studio and the rebuilt Stax record store. with live music throughout the two hour tour I can highly recommend this.

It may have started out a bit corny, but it turned out great! The host, Nancy Apple was a pretty good singer and told some very cool stories and trivia about the musical history in Memphis!

Great way to get an overview of Memphis

This was a great tour. We wanted to see Memphis in a short time and learn a bit about its music and this was perfect. We didn't know a lot about the artists from Memphis, but because the guide was playing the music while telling us about it and showing us the sights, it really came alive for us. Plus it was great for the kids. Our younger two are 6 and 2 and they were engrossed - banging those tambourines and shakers the entire time. Highly recommended.

Just Do It!!!

You definitely don't want to miss this!!! An absolute Memphis MUST!!!! Very enjoyable, entertaining, and informative. Our tour guide, Katie, was so talented, friendly, and knowledgeable. She brought the early history of rock n roll and the blues to life with her singing and wealth of knowledge. It's a four for one get to learn about the early history of rock n roll and the blues as well as a lot of interesting Memphis history AND be entertained at the same time. Definitely the most enjoyable history lesson I've ever had!!! :)

We loved this tour! Our tour leader, forgot his name, was informative and entertaining. I only wish that we could have stopped at the STAX museum instead of just driving by.

This was the first visit to Memphis! We had a really great time!!! I'm terrible with names, so I don't remember the tour guides name. (sorry!) The tour was fun, entertaining, and educational. Just wish more time was given to take pictures.
