Fantastic musical tour

In a trip of a lifetime, this was my best experience. A fun bus ride around Memphis, with a guide who also sang songs and gave history behind the songs and the area. Went to parts of Memphis not on the usual tourist areas. Our female singer was awesome and her local knowledge was second to none, if you are looking for a tour around Memphis with a little difference, are prepared to sing and shake your maracas, then I can not recommend this trip highly enough

Fun on the Bus

My husband and I went on the Mojo and Sun Studios tour on Jan 18, 2020. Princess dropped us off at the studio and made sure that the tickets were in order there. She said that she would be back to pick us up. The tour ran over by 15 mins, but Princess was there and got us to the rest of the Mojo tour. Shea was our guide and musician. Boy was she good. We drove all over Memphis and she was full of lots of information about the Blues and all there artist. We sang and played the instruments and just had an all round good time. Glad we picked the tour for our Saturday afternoon.

Eric Hughes was the anchor, narrator and soulful blues performer - right there in front of us! Very, very good! How cool is that? A great intro to the Music City on our first day and hit all the spots!
