Your Elvis Presley's Memphis, New Orleans and Nashville Tour itinerary

Every day a new experience

Day One: Arrive in Atlanta and transfer to Montgomery

Fly into Atlanta, then transfer by coach to the Alabama state capital, Montgomery. Spend the night in the city where country legend Hank Williams lies at rest, and where a dedicated museum celebrates his all-too-short but spectacular career.

Day Two: Travel to Louisiana, explore New Orleans and enjoy a riverboat jazz cruise

The gentle landscape of Harper Lee's Alabama gives way to the vast wetlands of Louisiana as we follow the Gulf Coast to New Orleans, the 'Big Easy.' When you arrive, you can head out to absorb the energy and atmosphere of this famous city, or, for a real taste of Americana, join us for an optional dinner jazz cruise on board Natchez, a traditional-style steamboat.

Day Three: Take a tour of the Big Easy and visit the swampland

Take advantage of our optional guided tour and have the Big Easy brought to life by an enthusiastic, expert guide. No doubt you've seen the iron-balconies and covered sidewalks of the French Quarter in movies and on TV, but today you'll be able see them for real. You'll also get to walk among (and photograph) the brightly painted wooden houses of Treme, and see the three spires of St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square.

Later, head into the surrounding countryside on our optional Louisiana swampland excursion which takes you, by boat, through the famous Manchac Swamp. You'll learn about Louisiana's wetlands and wildlife, including the alligators you'll be looking out for along the way. Plus, you'll find out more about the history of the Cajun town of Frenier.

You'll then return to the 'Quarter' for a night exploring the bars and clubs where the sounds and spirits of Louis Armstrong and 'King' Oliver live on.

Day Four: Head to Tupelo, Mississippi, then move on to Memphis

In a change of tempo, jazz switches to rock 'n' roll as you leave New Orleans to head to Elvis Presley's birthplace: Tupelo, Mississippi. Here, you'll have time to visit the tiny house where The King was born (entrance payable locally), and after paying homage at the place where history was made, you'll continue to Memphis.

Settle in to your hotel, then perhaps head to legendary Beale Street for an evening of food, drink and music: the perfect combination.

Day Five: Visit Sun Studio and Graceland

Today's full-day optional excursion is an unmissable pilgrimage. Our first stop is Sun Studio, where musical greats including Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and BB King all recorded. From there we'll head to the world's most famous rock 'n' roll residence, Graceland, Elvis's beloved home and estate, where you'll also have plenty of time to explore and pay your respects.

Day Six: Journey through Tennessee to Nashville

Sit back and relax as our air-conditioned coach carries you through the rolling woods and farmland of Tennessee to Nashville, the city that remains the heart and soul of country music.

Day Seven: Visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Studio B

Today's optional excursion is another you really don't want to miss, as we delve into the history behind the sound at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and discover the legendary recording studio that spawned more hit songs than any other in America: Studio B.

Day Eight: Travel south and through Chattanooga to Atlanta

Our final day takes us south, via Chattanooga (of "choo choo" fame), as we return to Atlanta Airport where you'll check in for your flight back to the UK.

Day Nine: Arrive home in the UK

Arrive home, after an overnight flight, with a head full of memories and (probably) an irresistible desire to revisit your Elvis, country, blues, jazz and rock 'n' roll music collections.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately two hours.

Passports and visas

When travelling to the USA, British citizens require passports with an integrated chip (shown on the front by a small rectangular symbol beneath the word PASSPORT), valid beyond the return date from the USA. Visas are not normally required for entry, but visitors must apply for an ESTA online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure at www.cbp.gov/esta . The current charge is $14 for British Citizens. British subjects and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested should consult the US Embassy as a visa may be required. Note too that if you have visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia or Yemen since March 2011, or have dual nationality with any of these countries, you do require a US visa and cannot travel on the Visa Waiver Program.

New Orleans Carnival

The February 6th 2018 departure offers the chance to see the city pre-Mardi Gras. Enjoy the party atmosphere as decorated floats run through the streets, as they're readied for the annual Shrove Tuesday celebration.

Graceland Christmas Decorations

The December 5th, 19th and 26th 2017 departures will see Graceland Mansion decorated for Christmas. Join our optional tour in Memphis, and see a life-size nativity scene, Santa's sleigh on the lawn and the house decorated throughout with trees and decorations.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. The customary gratuity for a coach driver or Tour Manager is about $5 per person per day. It is normal to tip 15-20 per cent of the bill for a taxi or in a restaurant, and to leave a dollar or so per drink in a bar.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and new the answers to any question you might have regarding finding places, getting around, etc. which was very useful and being English made her very easy to understand.
we were lucky in that we did not get held up on the roads otherwise I think the travelling might have been a bit too much as you only got one full day and one evening at each location.
Breakfast was complimentary in most of the hotels which was a great help as we were on the road early most days and to find a diner that could cope with a coach load of people at 7 in the morning would have been difficult.

A holiday of a lifetime, everthing was perfect from the tour guide to the cosch driver. Free extra stop offs were included which we had no idea about... martin luther king, tina turner & chattanooga. Hotels were perfect which we were a little worried about as usually stay in 4 star but had no complaints. Would recommend this trip to any music fans
