Day 01: UK - Atlanta

Fly into Atlanta, then transfer to the Alabama state capital, Montgomery. Spend the night in the city where country legend Hank Williams was laid to rest, and where a special museum celebrates his short, spectacular career.

Day 02: Montgomery, Alabama to New Orleans

The gentle landscape of Harper Lee's Alabama gives way to the vast verdant wetlands of Louisiana as we follow the Gulf Coast to New Orleans. Once there, head out to absorb the exuberant energy of this lively city, or join an optional (£) dinner jazz cruise on board a traditional southern steamboat.

Day 03: Optional tour and Manchac Swamp excursion

Explore the Big Easy on today's optional (£) guided tour. See the iron-balconies and covered sidewalks of the French Quarter, the brightly painted wooden houses of Treme and the three spires of St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square.

 

Later, head into the surrounding countryside in search of the soul of Creole on an optional (£) Louisiana swampland excursion, then return to the 'Quarter' for a night exploring the bars and clubs where the sounds and spirits of Louis Armstrong and 'King' Oliver still linger.

Day 04: New Orleans, Tupelo and Memphis

Focus shifts from jazz to rock 'n' roll today, as we leave New Orleans and head to Elvis Presley's birthplace - Tupelo, Mississippi. You'll have time to visit the tiny house where The King was born (entrance payable locally), before continuing on to Memphis.

 

Settle in to the wonderful Inn at Graceland, then head to Beale Street for an evening of great music and great food.

Day 05: Optional (£) Sun Studio and Graceland excursion

Today's full-day excursion includes a visit to legendary Sun Studio, where music legends from Elvis Presley and Roy Orbison to Johnny Cash and BB King recorded, and to Elvis's beloved home and the world's most famous rock 'n' roll residence - Graceland.

Day 06: Memphis, Tennessee to Nashville

Relax as your air-conditioned coach carries you through the rolling woods and farmland of Tennessee to Nashville - the city that remains the heart and soul of country music.

Day 07: Optional (£) Country Music Hall of Fame and Studio B excursion

The final excursion is one you really don't want to miss, as we delve into the history behind the sound at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and discover the legendary recording studio that spawned more hit songs than any other in America: Studio B.

Day 08: Nashville to Chattanooga and Atlanta

Your final day takes you south, via Chattanooga - beautifully set on the Tennessee River - as we return to Atlanta Airport to check in for your flight back to the UK.
