Book a Holiday Full of Music, Culture and History

There are so many countries now open for business and rather than focus on the usual suspects, we wanted to find out about holidays with a difference, maybe something on people’s bucket list or the kind of holiday you have never thought about but sparks your interest.

Of course, it was time to speak with our travel specialists at Idle Travel and they told us about a brilliant, unique holiday experience we think you will like, especially if you are a music enthusiast.

This is a journey through America’s musical heartland, from the birth of jazz and the cradle of rock ‘n’ roll to the undisputed capital of country music.

This wonderful holiday is crammed full of highlights and infused with the magic, mystique, sights and sounds of the south. Beginning in Georgia where you will travel through the world of WC Handy, Robert Johnson, Fats Domino, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and – of course – the one and only Elvis Presley.

Stay in New Orleans, the laid back Big Easy. See Tupelo, ‘the King’s’ birthplace, and Memphis where he made his home. Finally, head to the guitar pickin’, banjo playin’ songwriters city of Nashville, Tennessee.

Tour Highlights

  • Visit Elvis’ hometown, Tupelo, Mississippi
  • Discover Nashville, the world capital of country music
  • Experience the atmosphere of New Orleans famous French Quarter
  • Stay In Montgomery, the resting place of country legend, Hank Williams
  • Visit Beale Street in Memphis, the ‘home of the blues’
  • Spend two nights in New Orleans
  • Two nights in Memphis, staying at The Guest House at Graceland, right next to Elvis’ famous mansion
  • Journey through the sleepy countryside of Alabama

What Does the Price Include?

  • Seven nights room only accommodation at a series of good quality hotels in Montgomery (1 night), New Orleans (2 nights), Memphis (2 nights) and Nashville (2 nights), plus one night on the aircraft.
  • Comfortable air-conditioned coach travel and transfers throughout.
  • Return Flights to Atlanta.
  • Fully escorted by a friendly, experienced tour manager.

Bearing in mind that this is an escorted tour holiday, it may be ticking most of your boxes, but you would prefer the freedom of your own timetable. Why not consider this whole trip (and anything else you would like to add), on a Fly/Drive holiday?

This is also a very popular option and full details for both options, plus prices and availability are available at our favourite family run, independent travel agent – Idle Travel.
