Also new to the 2011 brochure is the 12-day Rock & Soul itinerary, which includes cool cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, Louisville, Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans. “We’re thrilled to announce the new Rock & Soul itinerary,” says Kelly Camps-Pitre, VP of Operations at Contiki Vacations. “It takes travelers through the heart of America to experience the rhythms of the river – the music, food, and people that make this region unique and popular.”
