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!

“Culture music & sightseeing all in one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

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.

“You will have a great time and you will learn about Memphis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

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 in public housing? All this and more presented with humor and music--our guitar-slinging performer was extremely funny and factual as well. Take the extended tour that includees Sun Studio since you'll have to make that pilgrimmage anyway during your visit. A tour is always the best way to learn about a place you visit--and this tour is among the most enjoyable we've ever taken.

“A good overview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Entertaining tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

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.

“We would do this again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

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
