Southern delicacies include chicken and ribs, biscuits and gravy, and more curiously, Elvis' favorite Graceland snack, a peanut butter and banana concoction. But here's food for thought: Our equally eclectic travel menu of mouth-watering southern destinations, nicely sandwiched between prime left- and right-coast stop-overs. Get a taste of Texas, full servings of Memphis and New Orleans, and a naughty nibble of Las Vegas, before a final bite in the Big Apple, New York City.

Hi, So I'm looking at booking this tour within the next few days (oct 26th depature) and was just wondering what others who've been on this tour thought of it? Also thinking of booking the london explorer but not sure if it's worth it or not. How strict are they with the luggage requirements? I've been on contiki in the States and my bag was neither weighed nor measured. But I've heard they're quite strict in Europe. Thanks =)
