Deep South USA

13 days from £3,285 £2,792

Musical meccas, soul food, and southern hospitality

The Deep South is more than a place, it’s a mood. Life here is all about letting the good times roll, from knocking back bourbon in New Orleans’ jazz bars, to line dancing in Nashville’s country music venues. Sample that famous southern hospitality on this 15-day tour of America’s southern states, from Texas to Georgia. Pay tribute to Elvis in Graceland, join the space race in Houston, tuck into Texan barbecue in Austin, and visit the largest Mexican market outside of Mexico. With finger-licking soul food on the menu, and a constant soundtrack of jazz, blues, and country, this trip hits all the right notes.   


Highlights include

New Orleans French Quarter
Texan BBQ dinner
Creole dinner
The Alamo
Largest Mexican market
Civil Rights Museum
Beignet pastry tasting
Graceland and Sun Studios visit
Historic Woolworth Theatre
Texas, Louisiana & Tennesse
Nasa Space Centre (optional)

Accommodation & Meals

Accommodation

All your accommodation is included on this trip. You’ll spend most nights in centrally located hotels from well-renowned chains, including one with a guitar-shaped pool in Nashville (subject to change)!

Lots of our travellers are solo travellers, so when you book with us, we’ll pair you up with a like-minded roommate of the same sex. Our trips are great for couples or friends as well - just let us know you’re together, so we can be sure to put you in the same room.

Meals

9 breakfasts and 3 dinners are included on this trip. You’ll have the freedom to eat wherever and whenever you like the rest of the time. Roll up your sleeves and loosen your belt for this trip, because southerners take the business of food very seriously. Whether it’s po’boys and beignets in New Orleans, or beef brisket and ribs in Texas, the food here is seriously good. The diet can wait.

Extra information

This trip begins on day 1 in Dallas Fort Worth. You’ll need to fly into Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and make your own way to our meeting point. We’ll be travelling to Austin on day 1, so we’d recommend that you arrive the day before the trip begins to ensure you’re at the start point in time. If you’d like to book pre trip accommodation, contact your travel advisor for more information.  

The trip ends on day 13 in Nashville. The nearest airport is Nashville International (BNA). Return airport transfers are not included but your tour guide can help you book onward travel. Taxi is the quickest way to get to the airport and takes around 18 minutes depending on traffic.

This trip is designed for those aged 18-35. 

For those aged under 21, you may not be permitted entry to bars, clubs or other premises where alcohol is served.
