This tour was a good way to see & get a lot of information of Memphis in a short space of time. Larry our tour guide was very informative & knew his stuff. This was the 2nd time we had Larry as our guide & he was helpful beyond what he had to be. Thoroughly enjoyed the two Backbeat tours... More

This was a great tour with live music. They drive by all the important places and give you a great deal of information. Be sure to add the sun studio tour.

What a great idea, easily found on Beale Street, a bit difficult to miss the bus and having a fabulous local musician (Eric Hughes) providing not only the great tunes but the back stories to so many interesting locations and people around Memphis cannot be understated as to increasing the level of enjoyment this tour provides. The time flashed by... More

BackBeat Tours are terrific from the first greeting to the end. This is a great, stress free way to see Beautiful Memphis. Being in town for just 3 and a half days to explore, we wanted it all arranged before we left so we knew what we were doing each day, and to make sure we didn’t miss a thing... More

We booked a tour with Backbeat Tours with our class reunion. Our guide, Eric Hughes, a very talented musician, played the guitar while telling the history of Memphis music and pointing out musical landmarks. We highly recommend this tour.

We booked the Big Mojo tour with a tour of Sun Studios to get acquainted with the city of Memphis and learn some history. We thought we would tour first and then see Sun Studios. When we arrived we were told that we would go to Sun Studios first and then tour the city. We joined the tour from earlier... More

My wife and I just completed the ghost tour. It was enjoyable and our guide was a good story teller who filled some time with unrelated but welcomed Memphis trivia. But there is a lot of room for improvement. This isn't a scary tour by any stretch but that's neither good nor bad. The ghost stories, however, were few and... More

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
