Make musical memories in Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans
Picture it – you’re jumping from Nashville to Memphis to New Orleans, laying down tracks at recording studios and hanging out at Graceland along the way. It may sound like a week in the life of Elvis Presley, but on this 6-day adventure, you’ll have the chance to walk a country mile in his blue suede shoes. Join a local leader and group of fellow music lovers to get to the root of country music in Nashville, sing the blues in Memphis and jazz it up in New Orleans. If fantastic food, art, culture and history sound like music to your ears, then this is the trip for you.
Earn your place in the Country Music Hall of Fame as you take part in a recording session with a professional sound engineer at the iconic Studio B in Nashville.
Walk in the famous footsteps of BB King, Johnny Cash and Howlin' Wolf at the 'Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll', the Sun Studio in Memphis.
Discover a kitschy world of Southern glitz and glamour at Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley and his final resting place.
Get to know the real New Orleans during a walking tour that celebrates local artists and brings the culture and history of the city to light.
It doesn’t get much better than Southern food – learn how to cook a classic New Orleans crawfish boil for a true taste of Louisiana.
Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.
This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
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’re travelling 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 may have fewer options, as a lot of southern cuisine is meat-based.
