An escorted tour is an exclusive holiday package, tailor made just for you. Instead of spending all your time booking excursions and deciding which must-do activities you can make time for, and which ones you can skip, book an escorted tour – where everything is organised for you. An escorted tour is designed to put you at ease, knowing all the best activities are being planned for your convenience.

What’s the difference between an escorted tour and a self-guided tour?

On an escorted tour your package will include your transatlantic flights, accommodations in our selected tour hotels, a specially curated itinerary that you are sure to love, and the service of a professional Tour Director for the entirety of your trip. You can choose from one of our thirty escorted tour packages – each one of which is more exciting than the last.

On a self-guided tour, you will not have the assistance and service of a professional Tour Director. Our travel experts can create the perfect tailor-made package for you, but when it comes to checking out the sites and travelling around, you will be touring independently.

Favourite Destination: Memphis is one of my favourite cities as there is plenty of things to do and see. I visited Beale Street, home of the blues, which has dozens of bars and clubs with live music. From there we visited the famous Graceland - the home of the late great Elvis Presley. The Civil Rights museum is also another must see. My highlight though was the Memphis Zoo, it was a great for a day out and I then was able to wind down with a River Boat cruise down the Mississippi.
