An Entertaining Way To Tour Memphis

My partner and myself on a visit to Memphis from the UK joined a small group for an extended Backbeat Tour of Memphis including Sun recording studios. We were made to feel welcome immediately by the lady at the ticket office and took our seats on the historic restored Backbeat bus with nice comfortable seats and were treated to an entertaining tour with our tour guide in good singing voice trying to get reserved British tourists to join in, (a difficult Job we don't do audience participation very well) but all in all an enjoyable tour with lots of information good entertainment with nice people. A tour of Memphis with a difference and recommended

Areallly nice, laid-back tour - the tour guide gave us a lot of interesting details about rock and soul atists and the locations we passed by - he also provided enternainment by singing to his own guitar accompaniment - plus audience participation if you wanted to... all great. Good Value for money too.

Sing Your Way Around Memphis
Wed, Apr 18, 12   10:30 AM SusanGurin Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had a ball touring Memphis with Daniel Sage. What a personable young fellow. Lots of talent too. Of course, the rhythm section (that was the tour group) made all the difference. We enjoyed seeing the sights around the City and for us one of the highlights was the tour of Sun Studios. We sang and laughed the whole time. I would recommend this tour very highly to anyone interested in a unique tour of Memphis.

Excellent introduction to Memphis music history
Wed, Apr 18, 12   10:30 AM SaraWebb Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Other
This bus tour was good fun, and an very informative introduction to the history of music in Memphis. It covers a lot of interesting detail on people and places. We loved the old bus, which was very comfortable. The organisation seemed a little haphazard, but in practice everything worked out well. We would strongly recommend the extended tour to include the Sun Studios timed tour.

Must do!

Did the Mojo Tour with Memphis Jones and it was fantastic. He and Bill (the owner) really bring the passion and fun to the tour. Memphis has so much history and music to offer and it's great to hear it from the local source. You definitely learn and see a lot by going on this tour. Highly recommend it.

If you are visiting Memphis, don't miss this tour!
Fri, Nov 11, 11   1:30 PM Redant Female Unspecified International Tourist(s) Individual
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Memphis Jones is a star performer and very skilled at getting the whole bus singing and shaking! He also has an in-depth knowledge about the sites along the way, and his passion for the performers and their history comes across. If you are doing the shorter tour like me, it gives you a taste of the different places to visit and which you might want to explore further. It was the highlight of my trip, and if you are in Memphis on the particular day the tour is being run, don't miss it!

Too much of the same thing
Sat, Nov 5, 11   8:00 PM railenet Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The concept of the tour appealed to me and I was really excited. After the first hour the novelty wore off. Possibly it was the guide, who may not have had the "knack" for telling a good ghost story, nor was she really interested in whether people had "orbs" on their cameras or not. One of the "key" stops on the tour we were not taken to as the venue had a private function on - which is fine except the Guide didn't tell us it wasn't until the end of the tour when another guest questioned why we weren't going. So being up front would have been the honest thing to do. I was genuinely disappointed. And if you seriously work with spirit, then there was nothing to see.

Great Musical Memphis Tour
Wed, Oct 26, 11   1:30 PM Elainecox Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Tour leader, Gary Hardy , takes you on a musical tour of the Memphis with a great voice and enthusiasm.

He knows the history of the industry having been in it for years and his love of the music shines through. I read the reviews on trip adviser before I left on my tour from New Zealand, and booked then and was so glad I did as this really was atour with a real difference and made Memphis come to life,.

Gary Hart, fantastic

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.

The highlight of our stay in Memphis.
Sun, Oct 9, 11   10:30 AM caroljillins Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I booked this tour not knowing quite what to expect and it was the highlight of our stay!

I think we were lucky to have Garry Hardy as our guide. Having been born and bred in Memphis he was so knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic about his subject. He is also a very accomplished singer and guitar player and entertained us throughout the tour. A bus ride has never been such fun! The guide at Sun Studios was also brilliant and the tour was fascinating. In the evening (Sunday) we returned to the cafe where the tour started to listen to Garry some more and enjoyed the Ribs there.

Thank You! Carol Jillins
