I love a quirky bus tour. This was not that. The heat index in Memphis the day we took the tour was 103 degrees. I heard the tour guide making a lot of excuses for the temperature by saying "oh the A/C works great until you get 30-40 people on the bus". Um, seriously? The bus was so uncomfortably warm... More

Megan was an excellent historian, singer, and story teller. She was funny and talented. Her anecdotes were informative and interesting.

We took the early afternoon tour. It was a very hot day, but the bus, in spite of its years, had nice air conditioning. The bus is equipped with a singer, good audio and some additional music gadgets for the tourists to play along. The musician is a very good singer and an entertaining storyteller, he sings along Memphis history... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. If this is your first time to memphis this is a good introduction to the city and to the music. Your tour guide is not only the narrator but also sings the songs he is talking about. He was a great singer and great story teller. We also got given tambourines to join and act as... More

If you aren't familiar with the rich history of Memphis music, this tour will give you a great introduction. You'll hear some songs you recognize, but may not recognize the composer. It's a great first thing to do in Memphis as it may spark other places to visit -- you don't get off the bus unless you pay to go... More

It was alot of fun and learned and saw alot! Guide was great. We did the Sun Studio Tour after and it was nice because you didn't have to drive there and park, the bus dropped you off and picked you up.

We saw this advertised and booked online the day before we planned to go. All I can say is if you like music and don't mind joining in with a tamborine or shaker this is the tour for you. Our singer/guitarist guide was fantastic and very knowledgable about the musicality of the area. This is the best value bus tour... More

My wife and I took this tour with a guide who was very knowledgeable and could sing old rock and roll pretty well. We saw the Memphis sites and of course the rock and roll sites. Everyone had a good time and it got us into the mood of the fifties and the excitement of early rock and roll.
