Itinerary

Founded by French traders in 1718, New Orleans has many layers of history to uncover. Begin with an optional walking tour of the French Quarter before tucking into some Creole cuisine or hitting the bars of Bourbon Street.
Enjoy a tour of Sun Studios in Memphis, a place that many consider to be the home of rock'n'roll. There's also the opportunity to visit Graceland or catch a live blues show in this music Mecca.
Get ready for some more music in the country-rock town of Nashville. Take a stroll down Music Row, where more than 50 record studios and 200 music publishing houses are located, and stop by the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Cruise to Louisville, home of the the Kentucky Derby, the largest collection of Victorian-era homes and, to top it all off, the final resting place of Colonel Sanders. Perhaps take some time out to follow the Bourbon Trail, learning about the history of the beverage, or sample the cuisine of Louisville's up-and-coming food scene.
Journey to the shores of the Great Lakes and among the towering skyscrapers of Chicago. Enjoy free time to tackle the many walking trails and parks, head out for some deep-dish pizza or get a bird's-eye view from Willis Tower – the tallest building in the United States.
Cross the border into Canada and perhaps head up the giant CN tower for a look at this ultra-cool, ultra-clean capital – or see it from the ground on an optional bike tour. The next day, get a dose of one of North America’s most iconic marvels on a daytrip to the rampaging waters of Niagara Falls. If it’s not too cold, don a raincoat and head out on the waters for a Maid of the Mist boat tour.
Brush up on your French and discover a city that wears its European heritage on its sleeve. Home to more than 80 ethnic communities, Montreal is known for its fantastic food and atmospheric streets and neighbourhoods.
Swap French patisseries for Guinness on tap, and discover the fighting Irish spirit of a town that has been dubbed ‘The Athens of America’. Get caught up in the scholarly history of Boston with a trip to Cambridge, explore the Italian district or walk the Freedom Trail to learn about America’s founding fathers.
From the moment you spot the looming towers of New York on the horizon, it’s hard not to get caught up in the sheer size of this mega metropolis. From Times Square, Broadway, Central Park and the Empire State Building, there’s so much to see you could spend months just ticking off your to-do list.
