Owner description: The Home of the Blues comes alive on this city tour aboard Memphis' only music bus. See Beale Street, Sun Studio, Stax Records, the Lorraine Motel, movie locations and more, but the music is the difference on this tour. All of Backbeat Tours' guides are Memphis musicians, who play and sing selections from the city’s rich musical heritage, along with generous helpings of comedy and audience interaction. Ninety minutes of high-energy fun!

We picked the longer tour that included sun studios and to be honest it was worth every penny. We all met a BB Kings and then taken to the backbeat bus.

This was so much fun and definitely one of the highlights from our most recent stay in the US. As the bus takes you from one sight to the next, your guide plays and sings songs to fill the gap. You can join in if you like! There are various options but our tour also included Sun Studios, which is... More

We booked 2 tours with Backbeat Tours. First...we went on the Graceland Tour. Did not enjoy having to use the ipads with earphones for the tour so turned this off. But this was no fault of Backbeat Tours. The next day we had scheduled the Extended Big Mojo Tour. Loved this!!! Especially with Katherine as our tour guide as well... More

Kathryn was the most excellent tour guide. This was our first tour in Memphis and it set a wonderful tempo for things to come. Kathryn is an EXCELLENT singer and her history tidbits and personal stories just added to the wonderfulness of this tour. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour.

This tour was a fabulous combination of music and sights as the tour bus traveled around historic Memphis. Definitely worth the ticket price. Our guide, Katherine, had a great voice as she sang, and insightful comments about the history of music in Memphis. This is a fun experience, regardless of your knowledge of Memphis.

Bought the 90min tour. Nice bus tour, good music playing tour guide, lots of interesting info on early days of Memphis and her famous musical stars, but did not stop at any sights. Just a ride around town...will do the Hop On, Hop Off next time.
