Which Tour Is Right For Me?
Welcome to Backbeat Tours!
Our tours – the popular Memphis Mojo Tour, the Memphis Discovery Tour, the Ghost Tour, the Beale Street Tour, and the Historic Memphis Walking Tour – are the best way to experience one of the South’s most beautiful and complicated cities: Memphis, Tennessee. Starting from the heart of the city at the intersection of Beale Street and the old Blues Highway, our tours fan out over the city’s many fabled historic districts and show you what Memphis is all about.
You can purchase a gift certificate for any of our future tours by clicking here. Gift certificates are good for all of our tours including the popular Memphis Bike Tour, returning in March, 2021. Gift certificates make great presents for family and friends or use them yourself: just choose the tour and the number of tickets, and decide later when to come – there’s no expiration date. In the meantime, you’ll be supporting a small, local business and helping us get through a really difficult time.
And don’t forget to check out two great books: A History Lover’s Guide to Memphis & Shelby County or the classic A Guide to Historic Downtown Memphis – it’s the next best thing to being here with us!
Founded by author and historian Bill Patton, Backbeat Tours has been showcasing our great city to people from all over the world since 2006. We’ve been featured in the New York Times, on CNN, the BBC, Irish TV, Japanese TV, and Fox 13 News, and in Forbes, USA Today, Southern Living, Memphis Magazine, and newspapers around the country. Come see us, and find out what all the talk is about!
“I can’t think of a better way to see Memphis. I am so thankful that I decided to take the Mojo Music tour. Not only was it a fabulous time – I would have had no concept of exactly how history rich Memphis was without it. Jessica at ticketing was friendly and beyond helpful & our tour guide/musician …really shined…”
