What our clients are saying about their journeys through Southern USA
“America's Music Cities”
My main reason for selecting this tour was to go to Graceland and everything else was a bonus. However, everything was great to see and visit. We had a mix of Americans, Canadians and Australians (including me). The best highlights for me (other than Graceland) were RCA Studio B where Elvis recorded most of his songs as did many others and going to the Grand Ole Opry at Ryman Auditorium. The only problem with the tour timetable was that day 2 had half a day and the night as free time and day 1 was ...read more busy from morning to late evening. It would have been more comfortable if dinner on day 1 was on day 2 to break the days up a bit. I also think that for another $40 or $50 the visit to Graceland could have included all of the exhibits rather than some and then being asked to pay for other displays. Staying at the Gaylord Opryland Resort was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. It is fantastic.
“USA Music Cities”
Enjoyed this tour very much, New Orleans - Memphis - Nashville. Great accommodation, excellent tour guide. Generally a value packed tour.
“America's Musical Heritage - Globus”
This was a fabulous tour. Our Tour Director, Ken Thompson, was professional, approachable, and informative. He communicated well and had a meticulous eye for detail. The Coach Driver, Taurus, was skilled and caring, giving special attention to passengers getting on and off the coach. The hotels were excellent, especially Gaylords Opryland at Nashville, the Guesthouse at Graceland, Memphis and the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans. They were all high class hotels and well located. The included activities ...read more fitted admirably with the purpose of the tour with the highlights being the honky tonks along Broadway in Nashville, the Grand Old Opry the mansion and the Elvis Experience at Graceland and the food and music in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Alll the included meals were very good and gave us the chance to sample the cuisine of the local areas. This was one of the best tours we have done (and we have done lots). We particularly enjoyed it because it brought to life our love for the music that was born and still flourishes in this part of the world.
“Great overview of Southern tastes and sounds”
Cosmos didn't fail us with this itinerary - all the places we wanted to visit plus more. The hotels were, on the whole, okay. The tour director and driver were excellent (2 of the best). Highlights were New Orleans, visit to Graceland and Grand Ole Opry. It was unfortunate that the tour only had one night in Memphis so we didn't get to experience a lot. We really enjoyed the stay in Savannah - what a beautiful city - so much to see and do. Optional excursions were a bit overpriced for what was ...read more included, especially the Natchez river cruise and dinner in New Orleans. Our booking experience with Global Journeys was excellent and highly recommend Hannah; we will definitely be back for future travel needs.
