from $3767
Duration: 10 Days
This trip hits all the glittering stars of the American south in 10 days, from the sultry jazz and sumptuous food of New Orleans, down through other musical meccas like Memphis and Nashville before the show stopping finale - glamping under canvas in the majestic Great Smoky Mountains.
Day 1
Start New Orleans
The love-child of French & Caribbean culture, New Orleans will steal our hearts as soon as we arrive.
Day 2
New Orleans
Now that you know New Orleans like one of the locals, it's your day to do your own thing. Stroll down Frenchmen street for the sounds of jazz and funk, head to the vast grassy oasis of the city park or check out the New Orleans museum of art for an extensive collection of gorgeous French masterpieces.
Day 3
New Orleans to Memphis
Bidding farewell to New Orleans, we're off to another musical mecca... Welcome to Memphis. It's time to pay homage to 'The King' today, as we're going to Graceland, the iconic home of Elvis. Then it's time to pay appreciation to another King, Martin Luther King JR, as we visit the Civil Rights museum, learning all about this vital force in the civil rights movement, before heading to sun studios, the place where Elvis recorded his very first song. What a day; and we're not even done with Memphis yet.
Day 4
Now we're nice and intimate with Memphis, it's your own day to explore. Take a taste of traditional food in downtown, visit the museum of soul music, check out the famous zoo and aquarium or take a tour of the Wiseacre brewery. No matter what you choose to do today, you'll fall in love with this melodic city.
Day 5
Memphis to Nashville
See ya, Memphis, Nashville is calling! Pull those boots out. Home to some of the musical greats, this city also played a crucial role in the civil rights movement. Tonight we'll have dinner at the famous woolworths where the first sit-in took place to desegregate lunch counters.
Day 6
Today you have the day for yourself to really get down and dirty with Nashville. Tour and taste all the southern delicacies, take a trip to the Ryman Auditorium and taste some classic whisky at Uncle Nearest Distillery in the day, then catch a country show at a famous venue.
Day 7
Today is yours to explore Nashville. Truly a musical paradise, a tour around the Country Music Hall of Fame will give us the low down on this city's musical past.
Day 8
Nashville to The Great Smoky Mountains
Thanks for the hospitality Nashville! We're heading to the "Land of the Blue Smoke". Named by the Cherokee for its bluish haze and mist like clouds, we'll settle down in this mountain paradise with our luxury glamping yurts, surrounded by pristine views and lush forestlands. Tonight we'll swap stories under the canvas of stars.
Day 9
The Great Smoky Mountains
As well as all that natural beauty, the Smoky Mountains are packed with options for unforgettable adventure activities. Today you can try your hand at ziplining, soak up that scenery atop a horse or whizz around on your very own ATV. The choice is yours.
Day 10
The Great Smoky Mountains to Atlanta
Today, we travel to the cosmopolitan city of Atlanta where our tour ends on arrival. Tissues on deck & souvenirs in tow, it's time to say our goodbyes. This has been the journey of a lifetime, so make sure to keep in contact for a reunion trip soon…
