Excellent tour, in large part due to guide
Sat, May 18, 13   2:30 PM goodall1 Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
This tour was especially good as our guide was excellent . Unfortunately I don't remember his name but he was a university student with fairish hair and beard, who was a bit of a musician.

The tour went to (a) Lorraine Hotel, site of MLK assassination ( as an aside the tour's view of James Earl Ray as the lone shooter seems a bit outdated , but.. )( b) over the road to try barbecue ( c ) the Rock n Soul museum ( about 40 minutes ) (d ) the Peabody for the duck walk and in between, ongoing tour / commentary through the downtown area. Tour lasted about 3 1/2 hours and I deemed it very good. The guide was informed, interesting and had a nice presentational style, with a warm personality and welcoming manner.

I did this on my first full day ( of 4 ) and it gave me a good lie of the land and a wealth of background info on Memphis and its history. I am a big music buff which makes Memphis such a great place to visit. So definitely, value for money for anyone new to Memphis and wanting to get a good taster of what Memphis has to offer.

Never been on a tour like this before and I loved it. Our guide, Kathryn was so sweet and enthusiastic about showing us around memphis using music and stories.

Priced very reasonably

Enjoyed joining in with the music with the little shakers we were given

Poor tour
Tue, May 7, 13   11:30 AM teddyhill Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Camera opportunities were poor ie out of the bus window , with glass flashback .one photo stop outside of the bus was a fluke by virtue of a customer wanting the toilet !! .The young gentleman singing was more preoccupied with his singing on beale street ie catch me here and tip me .My father needed a toilet stop and my friend who stayed behind was told why he had to go right at that moment , has he could have waited till the sun studio .well pardon my father for having a prostrate problem , he did well to hold on has he did , and nothing was said for the previous stop when the guide also alighted the bus .Had i known their would be no photo stops outside of the bus i would have not booked .The poor excuse of time proferred by the guide was poor , in liverpool the magical mystery beatles tours are time constrained but their is an outside photo shot at every relevant stop .you could do well to learn from the way they are operated.

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 Tour of Historical Sites Around Memphis
Fri, Apr 12, 13   11:30 AM kmclean82 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
During the 1.5 hour tour we drove past a lot of sites you would not have realised the historical value otherwise. The 50's style bus is also a bit of a novelty to be riding in.

There is a lot audience involvement required (singing along with the tour guide and shaking some percussion eggs), and the level of participation determines the energy of the tour.

Leaving Beale St on the Memphis Mojo Tour
Thu, Apr 11, 13   11:30 AM Gerrypearson Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
From start to stop we were thoroughly entertained by our tour Guide Kathryn. Celebrating my birthday on a rainy day this was a great way to see the sites that have made Memphis Famous. Gotta give our guide Kathryn special mention as she had our entertained all the time with her beautiful voice and guitar. What was fun about this tour is that she made it personable with side stories about the personalities that have made Memphis Famous. She handed out shakers and tambourines and I even joined her on harmonica as we made our way through on the bus to Sun Studios Graceland, Civil Rights Museum Stax Studios. I would definitely recommend this tour as it was a very pleasant way to visit everywhere that you needed to see in Memphis!

FANTASTIC!!!! A must do while in Memphis!!
Sun, Apr 7, 13   11:30 AM Loriwalsh Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Other
I recently travelled to memphis with a friend, we pre booked the extended mojo bus tour and we are so glad we did. The trip was fantastic from start to finish it was interesting,informative,great fun and would say its a must if you are visiting memphis. Our Bob Dylan duo ( Bob the driver and Dylan our muscian ) were very friendly had a wealth of knowledge and Dylan had a great voice. They were very accompdating and the memories of the trip will stay with us forever. We were shown places of interest that we would not have seen or known about had we not taken this trip, we were given instruments and could sing along with Dylan it was so much fun we even took a few beers on the bus which was a bonas! The extended tour includes a full tour with a guide to sun studios which was fantastic and a great end to the mojo tour. Will definitely take this tour again if we get the chance to return to memphis! They have two very happy customers.

united states holiday

my wife karen and myself booked a holiday to celebrate my birthday , the trip include visits to chicago , new orleans a cruise as well as memphis, we covered all the tourist stuff but the extended mojo tour was by far the highlight of out trip. Anyone who has an interest in the history of music MUST take this tour , the visit to Sun Studios was thrilling and we had a ball on the bus . Our guide Kathryn obviously loved her job and made our day , her knowledge, good humour and sense of history were fantastic. I would recommend the trip to anyone and it starts and finishes at Beale Street in time for food , drink and more great music . DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
