Southern Soul Experience

13 Days & 12 Nights

The Deep South is like nowhere else in the USA. It is a land of cotton, molasses and tobacco; antebellum mansions and shotgun shacks; Civil War battlefields and Civil Rights conflicts; oak trees draped in Spanish moss and bayous brimming with crawfish; sun-drenched beaches, virgin forests and mountains of Appalachia.

Driving through the Deep South could not be a more hospitable experience. There is such a relaxed feel here. Locals are only too pleased to help out whether it is giving directions or serving some of those sumptuous Southern specialties. As you drive be sure to switch on the radio and listen to blues, jazz, country, rock’n’roll and soul that are synonymous with the Deep South.

Land of the Kings Vacation Holiday

Land of the Kings
10 Days & 9 Nights

For millions around the world Memphis and Mississippi first and foremost mean music. The Blues were born in the Mississippi Delta combining traditional African rhythms with the soulful cries of the sharecroppers as they toiled in the scorched fields. If Mississippi was the birthplace of the Blues, Memphis became home to the music as aspiring musicians headed north on Highway 61 to perform their music on Beale Street. One of them traded his first name Riley for “The Beale Street Blues Boy” and today B.B. King still has a club on the lively street, which is now the premier entertainment district of the entire South.

And Mississippi also gave birth to another king, a certain Elvis Aaron Presley, in a 2- room, shotgun house in Tupelo.  His love of music began here when his mother bought him a guitar from the Tupelo Hardware Store for his eleventh birthday.  When the Presley family moved to Memphis, Elvis Presley joined forces with Sam Phillips at Sun Studio to revolutionize popular music and Rock’n’Roll was born.

But there is more than music.  Memphis and Mississippi also mean the mellow way of life in the Deep South.  The South of mint juleps and magnolia trees, of folklore and fable, and warm hospitality.  The South of Civil War, where preserved battle sites and historic homes bear witness to the tragedy of a nation torn apart.  The South of Civil Rights strife, where you can trace the African-Americans’ enduring struggle for freedom.
