I knew that this is basically just a ride to Graceland and back. The "Love & Happiness" vintage bus was clean and cute. The driver was friendly, and gave us some Elvis info along the way. It was great to have the admission tickets waiting for our group. But-- we waited 45 minutes for our turn to shuttle over to... More

We decided on doing both in one day which worked out just fine - there was about a 15 minute break between the two of them. Each one was different but you do overlap in some stories and sites. Not so much as not to take both of them. Extended Mojo Tour: We had Katherine as a guide - she... More

We took the Ghost tour on our first night in Memphis an excellent way to stroll through the city safely at night. Patrick ( born and bred in Memphis) told many interesting stories about the ghosts in Memphis. My wife and I ended up eating at Central Barbeque (twice) and Gus's fried chicken as per his recommendation, most excellent. The... More

Our tour guide, Patrick, knew alot about the history of the city and was able to explain it in an easy to understand manner. The 3 hour tour went to many interesting places and included entry to The Rock and Soul Museum which, the tickets were valid for a couple of days. We also got to try some good bbq... More

The tour was great, even better than I expected. Instead of a guide typically pointing out the sites, we had a dynamic, local musician – Brandon “Stunning” Cunning from The Stunning Cunning Band - who not only pointed out the famous Elvis landmarks, he alternated between very animatedly telling anecdotes about Elvis and playing guitar and singing Elvis songs. He... More

We used backbeat for both the ghost tour and our Graceland tour. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable and have us info about attractions and BBQ. They really love Memphis and really care about those that come on their tours. If I stayed longer I would have used them for other tours. Thanks Patrick and Harold!!!

What a great way to see Memphis! Our singing tour guide (Brandon Cunning) was so talented and a very engaging guide. We took the tour with our children aged 6 - 13 and they loved every minute of it. The tidbits of history and detail of the nooks and crannies of the City and the stars from Elvis to Jerry... More
