Tour Description

Experience the gracious hospitality and the rich musical influence that can only be found in the South! Begin in exciting Atlanta before heading to the amazing cuisine and music only found in the “Big Easy,” New Orleans. Next, head into Memphis, the birthplace of Elvis, and enjoy a tour of Graceland before travelling to thrilling Nashville, the country capital of the world and home to the Grand Ole Opry.

"Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana and mighty Mississippi are united by a haunting history but they’re probably most famous now for three things - music, music and music. We’re singin’ the Blues in Memphis, going to the Graceland home of the King of Rock Roll, and taking in New Orleans and all that jazz.”
- Alice Kirby, Tour Director
