Why you'll love this trip
  • Wander the historic streets of Savannah, trying the local food on a walking tour that blends the city’s history with some of its most delicious eats.
  • Learn about Charleston's rich and complex past with a local storyteller and guide and uncover the ‘lost stories’ of Charleston's rich history.
  • Enjoy a curated experience at the Atlanta History Centre, which connects past struggles to today’s movements for human rights.
  • Taste the real Tennessee during a whiskey distillery tour, followed by a finger-lickin' Nashville hot chicken dinner.
  • Take a guided tour of Bonaventure Cemetery, where you'll hear stories of the fascinating people interred here among the live oaks dripping with Spanish moss.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll learn about our Intrepid Foundation partner, the Cultural Heritage Economic Alliance. Donations help them create inclusive and equitable opportunities for Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) tourism businesses. Intrepid will double the impact by dollar-matching all post-trip donations made to The Intrepid Foundation.

Is this trip right for you?
  • The South gets mighty steamy in the summertime. Pack appropriately, drink plenty of water, and you might even grow to love it. September through to November is hurricane season, so if you travel over this period, you should pack a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.
  • You're in the Deep South of the USA, so expect a lot of (delicious) fried food and barbecue. Vegetarians and Vegans may have fewer options, as most southern cuisine is meat-based.
  • You may also want to check out our Best of the South trip if you have a longer time to explore the region:

This is an excellent trip for a whistle stop tour of the south. Food is great as long as you are not vegetarian!! The tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, which really helped.

Recently, I completed my first ever group travel trip. I chose Intrepid based on what a family member thought may suit me, and could not have been happier. Our guide, Travis, was exceptional with his knowledge, responsibility, interpersonal skills, and energy. This trip was just what I needed, and can't wait to do another one!

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. I got a taste of some cities that were new to me, learned about them from knowledgeable guides, had enough time on my own and we were well taken care of during the entire trip. I enjoyed meeting new my fellow travelers and the small grp format was perfect for my preferences.

I didn't expect that the only day we were in Atlanta was to spend in a civil war museum and MLK memorial museum.

If you like music, food, architecture and history then this tour is for you. The itinerary has the right balance between travel and non travel days; as well as good balance between group and individual activities. Happy to recommend.
