New Orleans, famous for its jazz, Creole cuisine and the ‘big easy’ lifestyle is the last stop on your holiday.

Memphis - For the best views of the Peabody Hotel's famous duck march, arrive 30 minutes before their 11am arrival and 5pm departure from the grand hotel's lobby fountain.

New Orleans - The French Quarter’s heart and soul is a must-see, boasting a statue of Andrew Jackson at its center and a ragtag collection of artists and fortune-tellers fringing its perimeter. It’s flanked by the filligreed Pontalba apartments, site of the Streetcar-Named-Desire-inspired “Stella!” shouting contest held during the annual Tennessee Williams Festival.
