On this southern U.S. tour, visit the cities and landmarks that have influenced America's musical heritage-country, soul, blues, and jazz with Elvis Presley also thrown into the mix. In Nashville, visit the Country Music Hall of Fame; RCA Studio B, one of the country's most important recording studios; and the Grand Ole Opry, where you have reserved seats. In Memphis, visit the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, celebrating the great Memphis soul music; Sun Studio, the most famous recording studio, which launched the careers of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and more; and Elvis Presley's Graceland. In celebration of Elvis' life, participate in many of the events planned for the 40th anniversary of his death.

Travel deep into the heart of the Mississippi Delta, the "Birthplace of the Blues," and visit the Delta Blues Museum, dedicated to the blues. Visit the B.B. King Museum and the Louisiana Delta Music Museum, where you will learn more about Louisiana Delta musicians such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, and more. In New Orleans, spend four nights, visit the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, and enjoy great jazz and delicious food during your lunch cruise on the Mississippi River.

But that's not all…in addition to musical heritage, you'll also have the opportunity to learn about life on a plantation and cruise through the swampy waterways of Atchafalaya Basin. Plus, Globus has arranged unique experiences for you throughout this southern U.S. tour. Enjoy a special lunch at Ground Zero Blues Club, owned by actor, Morgan Freeman, and dinner at an antebellum mansion in Natchez.
