Jump, jive, and wail through the New Orleans French Quarter in search of the blues and beignets. You’ll also face the music as you follow the path of the Mississippi River to the famed Delta Blues Museum, the B.B. King Museum, and Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero Blues Club. Both a musical and southern heritage tour, this holiday through the Deep South leads you to elegant antebellum mansions, historic cotton plantations, and the not-so-soft sounds of country, rock, and rhythm and blues.

Fantastic sights & sounds of the South   1 , NSW, Australia, May 2019
Very much enjoyed this tour... the pace was perfect. Too many highlights to mention... the excursions were wonderful, especially the swamp tours, the alligators were friendly! The accommodations were excellent, and the meals very tasty. The tour director and coach driver were brilliant.
Fabulous musical tour 1 , ACT, Australia, May 2019
This tour was fabulous. From Nashville to New Orleans so much history, music and fun. We absolutely loved Nashville, if you are into country music may I suggest you arrive a few days before the tour starts as there is so much to see and do. We loved Memphis, Clarksdale and beautiful Greenwood. Visits to the plantations and museums were well organised ...read more and a lot of fun.

Our tour director Brenda was very professional and organised and Patrick our driver was very tolerant and a gentleman. I highly recommend this trip. The only downside was our farewell dinner in New Orleans. Pokey little room with no windows. Very rushed and many people missed out on some of the meal. Not a good ending for an otherwise fabulous trip.
America's Musical Heritage - Globus   3 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2018
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, ...read more the Guesthouse at Graceland, Memphis and the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans. They were all high class hotels and well located.

The included activities 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.
Fabulous Musical Heritage Trip 3 , New Zealand, Sep 2018
We have just returned from a fantastic trip to the US South learning about our love for music. Music. Music. Music. Recording studios, cafes, joints, country, blues, jazz, hangouts, local. We had it all. The history was outstandingly conveyed to us in a great variety of forums. It was our 5th trip with Globus so it's very obvious we enjoy their "company". ...read more We started in mid September. CJ and Willie were an expert management team who worked together extremely well, even in a time of need with a 'sad bus'! Experiencing food from the local areas was another fact that we really enjoyed and receiving advice on this was greatly appreciated. Accommodation was up to the usual standard - very very good. We are from New Zealand and are always in the small minority in the touring group but there were a mix of Canadians, Australians and US people who accommodated each other very well. Having a common thread of music was definitely a plus. Thank you.
