The American arrivals process

Most British Citizens travelling to the USA do not need a visa but must register online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure. A charge of $14US applies. We will send you the details, along with your tickets, about two weeks prior to travel. Any persons who have a criminal record or have ever been arrested, even if not charged, cannot use this process and must apply for a visa
Day one

Fly to Atlanta to board the coach for the transfer to your overnight hotel in Montgomery. The Alabama state capital was the birthplace of troubled country superstar Hank Williams, whose all-too-brief but glittering career is celebrated in a museum in the city.

Day two

Today you'll head south, across the sleepy countryside of Harper Lee's Alabama, into Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast to New Orleans. Soak up the atmosphere of this exuberant and exciting city, perhaps joining our optional steamboat dinner jazz cruise.

Day three

This morning's optional guided city tour introduces the 'Big Easy' and the time-warped, iron-balconied buildings of the French Quarter, centred on Jackson Square. Afterwards, join our optional Louisiana swampland excursion for a glimpse of the city's surrounding countryside and a taste of Creole life. Head back to the 'Quarter' tonight, to immerse yourself once again in the place where the legacy of Louis Armstrong and 'King' Oliver lives on in innumerable bars and clubs, and on every lively street corner.

Day four

Leaving New Orleans today you'll start your Elvis journey with a visit to Tupelo, where you might wish to visit the tiny house that was the star's birthplace (entrance not included). Afterwards, a short journey brings you to Elvis's hometown, Memphis. This evening, soak up the atmosphere of Beale Street.

Day five

Today's optional full-day Memphis Sounds excursion includes a visit to the famous Sun Studio, the recording birthplace of legends from Elvis to the mighty BB King, and to perhaps the most famous southern 'mansion' of all, Elvis's Graceland.

Day six

Take a scenic drive through the wooded Tennessee hills and farmland to Nashville, the world capital of country music.

Day seven

An optional excursion introduces you to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the legendary Studio B, the starting point for more popular hits than any other recording studio in the USA.

Day eight

Journey south to cheery Chattanooga - of Choo-Choo fame - for a short visit, then head to Atlanta airport in the afternoon to board your flight home.

Day nine

Arrive back home, after an overnight flight.


February 25th 2014 departures offer the chance to see the city pre-Mardi Gras. Enjoy the party atmosphere as decorated floats run through the streets, as they're readied for the big Shrove Tuesday annual celebration.

Deep South Touring Hotels

You will be staying in a series of well-located hotels, all of which will be of a European three-star standard.

I would like to say we all had a fabulous holiday. We went on the Elvis holiday in Memphis. Our guide Julie could not have been better, very informative. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you
