Southern Comfort USA

From £2985 for 12 days
Trip Overview
Take a journey into the soul of the USA on this 12-day tour of the country’s Deep South. The air from Atlanta to Memphis is heavy with humidity and history, filled with the sound of country twang and trap music, and rich with the smoke from the local barbecue joints that seem to lie around every corner. From the creaking boards of the honky-tonk music joints in Nashville, to the elegant Victorian homes that line Rainbow Row in Savannah and the vibrant melting pot that is New Orleans, this tour will show you the best of the bold, brash, and boisterous Southern USA.

Trip Highlights

•   Embark on a road trip across one of the most colourful, musical and hospitable parts of the USA: the Deep South. This diverse trip takes you through six states and the best of the region's contrasting cities, from the historic settlements of Savannah and Charleston, to the mountain town of Asheville and the musical centres of Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans

•   A journey through the USA wouldn’t be complete without a lesson in history. Charleston’s story is told through the former auction rooms of the Old Slave Mart and in the fields of the cotton plantations

•   Experience the pinnacle of pop culture with a visit to Graceland, the iconic home of the ‘King of Rock and Roll’, Elvis Presley

•   Y'all might think you don't like country music, but Nashville’s honky-tonks may well change that. Visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and then check out a live band in town

•   Lively New Orleans is a great place to round off your trip. Discover French, Creole, Spanish and American influences in the Big Easy's architecture, food, history and music, and you won't find a cocktail more colourful than the city's signature drink, the Hurricane

Itinerary & Notes
Hey y’all! Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia! An important supply route during the Civil War, the spiritual centre of the civil rights movement in the 1960s and the hometown of some of hip-hop’s biggest stars, Atlanta is the perfect introduction to the fascinating Southern USA. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm today. Following the formalities, maybe get the crew together and head out in search of some hot wings or fried chicken for a taste of Atlanta flavours. If you arrive with a few hours (or days) to spare before the meeting, why not check out the Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site. Take some time and explore the house where the civil rights leader was born, the church where he honed his oratory prowess, and the memorial site where he is buried. Atlanta is also very proud of its connection to Coca-Cola – locals have a tendency to call every kind of soft drink 'coke'. Maybe tour the World of Coca-Cola for a lesson on the world's most popular fizzy drink.
