We took the Mojo tour and it was wonderful! We saw all the big sites of the city, including little known facts about the... More

We had the great fortune of spending three days in Memphis as first time visitors and truly enjoyed our time in this city so rich in music history. We did all the usual things, Graceland, Beale Street, BBQ, and more; however, the one great thing we did was to take the Memphis Mojo Bus Tour through Backbeat Tours. This 90... More

When someone asks us what to do in Memphis, our first reply is the Mojo Tour with Backbeat Tours. Kathryn, our tour guide, is such a great asset to the company. Her voice and guitar skills are fantastic and all her knowledge of Memphis kept us interested and we didn't want it to end. It was 90 minutes of great... More

Great pick-up location, clean bus and SINGING!!! Kathryn was our tour guide. She's absolutely the best. Beautiful strong voice and a great way of telling stories. This is not to be missed...

I took the Memphis Ghost Tour with Backbeat tours. It was so much fun. Our guide, Michael, was very knowledgeable about his city and the lore of his city. I felt like he did a great job of understanding his group and would tell additional stories based on what we wanted to know. He went above and beyond for us.... More

As tired as I was, this made my short trip go from a B to an A. Derrick is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and on time. Our bus driver was great at navigating the streets. Many different tours. I took the 3 hour tour. Warning - they give you a BBQ lunch so keep that in mind.

We even went back the next day to see some of the places in the daylight/ & the bloody piano. There we met the owner lady and she shared the same story. Very cool! My daughters are... More

Our guide and performer (Eric Hughes) was awesome!!!! He provided great music, great stories and was a lot of fun. The 90 minutes flew... More
