My husband and I enjoyed the Memphis Mojo Music Bus Tour recently when we were in town visiting our daughter. We have toured Graceland and Sun Studios, but there is still so much to learn about the history of Memphis - not only the music but the other historical events that took place there as well. This tour shows you... More

I liked this tour, our director was very knowledgable about the city and the sites we saw. We then took the trolly to go back to see the things we want to do more indepth, it was $3.00 for the Trolly for all day getting on and off as many times as we wanted to

The tour covers a very small distance but it was very hot so doing it by coach was comfortably cool. Larry was a fabulous tour guide, he gave us lots of interesting facts in a humorous way and spoke very clearly (not always the case we have learned on our trip through the south). The BBQ (at BBQ Central) was... More

Had a wonderful time on the tour. The girl that was narrating did an excellent job, and seem to have a good bit of knowledge of Memphis, and it's famous people. It was a treat to be able to see a lot of Memphis, and not have to walk or drive. And to sing and make noise with the songs... More

We had a great time on the Big Mojo Tour. Starting at B.B. King’s with lunch (included in the tour with a special menu), we enjoyed their catfish bites and fries. The catfish bites/pieces were delicious with the lightest batter. During lunch it was fun viewing memorabilia in the restaurant and tapping our feet to the music of a local... More

We had a good time touring the city. They have a musician play guitar and sing and give information on the sites in Memphis. They dropped us off at Sun Studios and picked us up after the studio tour to continue on. We had a bus that lacked much air conditioning, but still had a good time.

I highly recommend our tour guide, Kathy. She was very informative, personable, and flexible, since my wife and I were the only people on our tour the day we went. The tour concentrates on the area north of Beale Street. Easy walk, if you are not wanting to cover too many blocks or climb hills.

This was so much fun! The bus drives around Memphis and passes many of the important music sites in Memphis. The tour guide also plays live songs that correlate to site that you are driving by. The tour we took went past sites having to do with BB King and Elvis. Sun Studios, Graceland, Stax music, and the Lorraine hotel... More
