Memphis

Your trip begins in Memphis, a vibrant city on the banks of the Mississippi River where the dulcet tones of blues guitar riffs collide with the scent of smoky BBQ and Elvis is always in the building. While you’re here, you'll explore the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s former mansion on an incredible Graceland tour.

New Orleans

Hop aboard an iconic Amtrak train to New Orleans, a uniquely eclectic city where history, music and gastronomy combine to dazzling effect. You’ll be staying in the French Quarter, right in the beating heart of The Big Easy where jazz musicians burst into impromptu street performances, steam ships cruise along the Mississippi and creole cuisine reigns supreme.
