Itinerary

Day One

Fly into Atlanta, then transfer to the Alabama state capital, Montgomery. Spend the night in the city where country legend Hank Williams was born, and where a special museum celebrates his short, spectacular career.

Day Two

The gentle landscape of Harper Lee's Alabama gives way to the vast verdant wetlands of Louisiana as we follow the Gulf Coast to New Orleans. Once there, head out to absorb the exuberant energy of this lively city, or board a steamboat for our optional dinner jazz cruise.

Day Three

Explore the Big Easy on today's optional guided tour. See the iron-balconies and covered sidewalks the French Quarter, the brightly painted wooden houses of Treme and the three spires of St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square.

Later, head into the surrounding countryside in search of the soul of Creole on our optional Louisiana swampland excursion, then return to the 'Quarter' for a night exploring the bars and clubs where the sounds and spirits of Louis Armstrong and 'King' Oliver still linger.

Day Four

Our focus shifts from jazz to rock 'n' roll today, as we leave New Orleans and head to Elvis Presley's birthplace - Tupelo, Mississippi. You'll have time to visit the tiny house where The King was born (entrance payable locally), before we continue to Memphis.

Settle in to your third hotel, then head to Beale Street for an evening of great music and great food.

Day Five

Today's full-day optional excursion includes a visit to legendary Sun Studio, where music legends from Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison to Johnny Cash and BB King recorded, and to Elvis's beloved home and the world's most famous rock 'n' roll residence - Graceland.

Day Six

Relax as our 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

On today's optional excursion you'll explore the Country Music Hall of Fame, and have the chance to discover the recording studio that spawned more hit songs than any other in America - legendary Studio B.

Day Eight

Our final day takes us south, via Chattanooga - bizarrely the first city in the US to develop its own typeface - as we return to Atlanta Airport to check in for your flight back to the UK.

Day Nine

Arrive home, after an overnight flight.
