She assured me that it was a "Leisurely pace with multiple... More

We took the tour that visited the Peabody, Rock and Soul Museum, and had the BBQ tasting. Our guide (Michael) was informative and provided back stories to the history of Memphis. Only draw back was a scheduling issue caused us to have a limited amount of time at the museum and we kind of glanced over the Lorraine Motel. Other... More

So, so pleasantly surprised by this wonderful hour and a half tour. Wow! We cannot recommend the Memphis Music Mojo Tour enough. To us this us a must. So much history and locations we would never have known or seen. Music history was a theme guiding the narrative, but the history went beyond. Musician Eric "Scratchy" Hughes was our host... More

Air-conditioned bus on a humid day, great music by the guide, lots of history. Very good tour. I had signed up for the walking tour, but was the only one, so they offered this as an alternative. I'm very happy they did.

Wonderful tour, great guide, air conditioned bus and 3 hours well spent. Learned a lot of local history and lore, saw some of the highlights of Memphis and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Will definitely try the Music tour next time.

Learned a lot about Memphis. Larry was full of information. Loved learning about the three Kings...Elvis, B.B. King and M.L. King. The lunch stop at Central BBQ was unexpected and yummy! Our 10 year old daughter was engaged, loved seeing the Peabody ducks and enjoyed seeing sights she has learned from Civil Rights studies.

FANTASTIC! Live music and little known tidbits of information about the history of Memphis and the soul and blues musical history. Our tour guide, Joel, was great. And, we got to play along with tambourines and shakers and sing along. Also included Sun Studio Tour which was very interesting and narrated by the most enthusiastic tour guide ever! Definitely worth... More
