"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..."

Welcome to Backbeat Tours!

We're back! Reopening on May 22.

Backbeat Tours is back in operation again, with our Ghost Tours, Historic Memphis Walking Tours, and our new Memphis Bike Tour, starting Friday, May 22. (Our bus tours, including the Memphis Mojo Tour, will return in a few weeks - stay tuned!)

The tours are a great - and safe - way to cure the quarantine blues. Customers and guides on all tours will be required to wear a mask at all times (if you don't have one, we'll provide one for you) and we'll maintain social distancing throughout the experience.

We're excited to announce the launching of a brand-new tour, the Memphis Bike Tour! Read more about it and purchase tickets here.

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!

You can purchase a gift certificate for any of our future tours: use it yourself or give it to family and friends. How does it work? 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.

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!
