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

We loved our Hound Dog tour! Brandon Cunning was the most fun tour guide ever, and had our whole bus full of friends playing rhythm, singing, and dancing. Here's a link to a video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k570WiPi48 (hope that works!). We will do this EVERY time we're in Memphis.

Being that I am not one for touristy type stuff, I was a little bit skeptical. Since I am a musician though, my family wanted to do something that I would "be into". I was even more apprehensive when I met our tour guide, a very cute but young lady named Katherine (I believe her name was). I figured it... More

My friends and I did both of these tours while in Memphis. The Big Mojo tour was so much fun. It was very neat to see the historical sites around Memphis while being entertained by a singing, guitar wielding, tambourine supplying tour guide! We did the extended tour and so we got to go through Sun Studios. The tour guide... More

My friend and I scheduled a history tour with Michael, and we had the best time! He was knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and entertaining! I highly recommend one of their tours--or more than one if you have time!

Ok first Patrick our guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable on all local activities. This walking tour takes you past a lot of history. As a added bonus we were able to go inside one of the more haunted buildings. If you like ghost walks don't hesitate to do this one.
