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

Took the tour and learned lots about Memphis and the Blues. We included the Sun Studio tour, which was the highlight. Also drove past the small apartment where Elvis lived for a while, visited Overton Park where he gave his first 'concert', got lots of insider information about the music scene during those heydays. Drove past Civil Rights Museum, Stax... More

This is a unique and creative way to tour Memphis. Not only do you learn about famous musicians you can hear one of their songs while singing along and playing tambourine. You get to see many of the attractions listed on TripAdvisor so its a great way to start a visit.

Our first trip to Memphis would have been much less interesting without the Mojo Music Bus Tour. It was very informative--did you kinow the King of the Blues (BB) and The King (Elvis) lived about 3 blocks apart in a "not-so-nice" part of town? Did you know you can sleep in the rooms that were Elvis' family when they lived... More

A fun tour with live music, mostly Elvis/Sun records information. Wished for more info on the blues scene; all in all a good overview of the downtowns history.

We had booked one of Backbeat tours, historic Memphis walking tour. However, it was a horrible wet day and they were so kind they put us on the Mojo Music Bus Tour free of charge. What great service! We loved the tour, fully interactive with shakers and tambourines and sing along. Great way to see Memphis and what once was.

This was one of the highlights of our Memphis visit. It's a very unique and informative tour of the city. Our tour guide filled our heads with knowledge of the city and a lot of background facts about the music that made it famous. This was well worth it and it was so much fun we would do it again

Took the Mojo Musical Bus Tour of Memphis with my wife and it was great. The very talented and articulate guide played licks, sang songs and told stories of the beginnings of country and Rock & Roll as we drove pass historical sights like the original Sun Studio where Elvis, Johnny Cash and other legends got their start. The tour... More

This tour was wonderful--we learned more about Memphis than we ever could have on our own while being entertained by a talented singer and story teller, Brandon Cunning. Loved seeing where Elvis first lived and knowing he was right down the street from another famous singer. Saw where Johnny Cash lived and could picture him going door to door. Don't... More
