DAY 2 - Austin


Today is yours to get the low-down on Texan life. You have the option to take to two wheels to see the sights on a city bicycle tour, pick yourself out some new cowboy boots or kick-back poolside to preserve your energy for a night on the town – Austin has a world famous music scene for a good reason.

DAY 3 - Austin to San Antonio


Having conquered Austin, we'll venture onto San Antonio...

Bidding farewell to New Orleans, we're off to another musical mecca...


Welcome to Memphis. It's time to pay homage to 'The King' today, as we're going to Graceland, the iconic home of Elvis. Then it's time to pay appreciation to another King, Martin Luther King JR, as we visit the Civil Rights museum, learning all about this vital force in the civil rights movement, before heading to sun studios, the place where Elvis recorded his very first song. What a day; and we're not even done with Memphis yet.

As well as all that natural beauty, the Smoky Mountains are packed with options for unforgettable adventure activities.
