An unforgettable holiday to America's musical heartland

Celebrate the sights and sounds of the South as we step into the world of Robert Johnson, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and, of course, Elvis Presley. Cross the Mississippi Delta, where the blues began, to the birthplace of jazz in New Orleans, and follow the river to the hometown of The King and rock 'n' roll before heading west, to Nashville - the world capital of country music. Visit the places that inspired some of popular music's greatest icons, and see the studios where they recorded their classic tracks.

Elvis Presley's Memphis, New Orleans And Nashville Tour Highlights

  • Visiting Montgomery, the resting place of country legend Hank Williams
  • Journeying through the sleepy countryside of Alabama
  • Spending two nights in New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz
  • The atmosphere of New Orleans' famous French Quarter
  • Visiting Elvis's tiny birthplace in Tupelo, Mississippi
  • Exploring cotton capital Memphis, Tennessee, once home to The King
  • Memphis' "home of the blues" and famous Beale Street
  • Discovering Nashville, the world capital of country music
  • Visiting Chattanooga of "choo-choo" fame

What does the price include?

  • Seven nights' room-only accommodation at a series of good-quality hotels in Montgomery (1 night), New Orleans (2), Memphis (2) and Nashville (2), plus one night on the plane
  • Return flights from your chosen UK airport to Atlanta
  • Comfortable, air-conditioned coach travel and transfers
  • The services of a friendly, experienced Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement

Must try: Holding a baby alligator on our optional swampland tour.

Must taste: Seafood gumbo and beignets in New Orleans, and smoky barbecue pork in Memphis.

Fascinating fact: Sun Studio in Memphis is the spot where the million-dollar quartet of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash came together for an impromptu jam session in December 1956.

You say: "This is my fourth time on this trip. Enjoyed every minute on all my trips. My party with me enjoyed it, too, and said they would do it again."

Itinerary

Day One

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

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, come aboard Natchez, a traditional style steamboat for our optional dinner jazz cruise.

Day Three

Take advantage of our optional guided tour and have the Big Easy really 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, online, on TV and probably in brochures. But today you'll be able see them all for real. You'll also get to walk among (and photograph) the brightly painted wooden houses of Treme and 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

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. There, 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 on to Memphis.

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

Day Five

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

Day Six

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

Day Seven

Don't miss today's optional excursion to the Country Music Hall of Fame, one of the world's largest museums and research centres dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of American vernacular music. You'll also discover the recording studio that spawned more hit songs than any other in America: Studio B.

Day Eight

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

Day Nine

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.

Nashville and New Orleans Touring Hotels ★★★

The hotels used on our tours will meet the standard of a good, three-star European hotel. Rooms will have private bathrooms, telephones and TV. The vast majority will also have tea- and coffee-making facilities. There will always be a bar or restaurant on site or nearby.

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 6th February 2018 and 26th February 2019 departures offer 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 5th December 2017 departure 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.

*Low deposit of £49 per person applies to new bookings made between 21st June and 31st July 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected air-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.

A very well organised trip, I liked the way whenever we arrived at our hotels the currier would get our keys while the driver got our cases off, quick with no nonsense. Everything was thought out.
