    I went on this a few years ago when the conversation rate was incredible. Ended up spending about $4000 plus optionals (another $1000). This also included a $600 last minute flight from Memphis to new Orleans when I missed the bus though. I’m not a big shopper but I am a big drinker (drinks are super cheap and shopping is really good).
    Always budget how much you expect to spend and then DOUBLE it. Unexpected expenses pop up everywhere. Best have too much than too little. It’s a fantastic tour though! Have fun xx
