As first timer in Memphis, I was looking for a tour that would give me a good overview of what to see and do. The Mojo Music Bus did that and more! The fairly modern bus was clean and comfortable and the sound system was perfect for hearing all of the great narration. Our guide, Nancy Apple, is an accomplished... More

Our guide Brandon was informative, funny and a good musician. It was an excellent intro to Memphis for us and we went straight on to take their follow up history tour. We added on the Sun studio tour which was well worth the extra. With a short time in Memphis these are the best way to see the important areas.

The tour guide was very proud of her voice and album, but we learned almost nothing about the city that we didn't know just from reading tourism articles.

For newcomers to Memphis, the tour was a quick and delightful way to learn about the city, and the singing tour guide was a wonderful first for us!

This was a fun general tour of Memphis. We were only in Memphis for one day so wanted to get an overview of the city. This was the ticket! It's a bus trip so not any real time at any of the sights, but our guide, Eric, knew a lot, had interesting stories and was a fun and talented guy!... More

Took the tour with Brandon Cunning. He had a great way about him to make the tour interesting and fun. The tour of Sun studios is a must, it sets the music scene of the time and starts the Elvis story in motion. The tour was in a comfortable air conditioned bus. We saw the highlights of the city. It... More

Great bus tour for an overview of Memphis! The music was fun and the time seemed to fly. It does only stop, I think once, but that didn't matter--really just interested in the stories. Recommend!

This was a fun and interesting way to learn about the music legends that came out of Memphis. Both my husband and myself enjoyed the tour. The only disappointment was that there were a group of people, that must have been on a trip together, that not only pushed there way to get on the bus first, but also proceeded... More
