American Rhythms Escorted Tour

Nashville • Memphis • New Orleans

If you fancy a holiday that combines the hospitality of the Deep South, some of the best live music in the world, a rich history and amazing scenery then this American Rhythms escorted tour is the perfect choice for you.

Experience big city living and small town charm, vibrant nightlife and the quiet ambiance of antebellum mansions on this escorted tour. You’ll begin in Nashville, the city which has earned the name ‘Country Music Capital of the World’. With the help of your local tour guide, explore this busting city by foot, taking in the sounds of up and coming musicians playing along Broadway and passing by the famous Honky Tonks and Boots stores. No trip by a music fan to Nashville would be complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry where a backstage tour and concert is highly recommended.

Your escorted tour continues to Memphis, a city known for the Blues. Enjoy a city tour including Beale Street, the heart of the Blues music scene. Take the opportunity to fit in a trip to Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley before travelling to New Orleans, home of the infamous Mardi Gras.

Immerse yourself in Creole culture on board a Mississippi Riverboat dinner cruise against the backdrop of this amazing city with a Dixieland jazz band providing the background music. Be sure to visit the French Quarter and Bourbon Street to soak up the true atmosphere in the heart of the city before finishing your tour.
