"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'll be temporarily closed for all tours at least through April 7.

After that, we'll take it week by week, day by day. But we'll be back!

In the meantime, for an old-school, "armchair tour" of Memphis, check out two great books: A History Lover's Guide to Memphis & Shelby County (to be released March 23, but available for pre-order on Amazon), or the classic A Guide to Historic Downtown Memphis - the next best thing to being here!

And check out some great music, too, from Eric Hughes, Nancy Apple, Shekinah (Shae) Toebbe, Cecil Yancy and Andrew Best.

And don't forget, 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.
