Tour Itinerary:

The sounds of the blues, jazz, country, and good old rock ‘n’ roll come alive in America’s most celebrated musical cities of Memphis and Nashville. In Memphis, we’ll don our blue suede shoes when we take an insider’s visit of Elvis Presley’s 14-acre palatial estate, Graceland. A visit to Memphis is not complete without a visit to the Rock & Soul Museum and a tour of Sun Studio where the likes of Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and Conway Twitty got their start. And of course, we’ll take in a blues club and complement our visit with some world-famous southern barbeque!

In Nashville, we’ll have dinner with a local songwriter and listen to some of his work. We’ll enjoy amazing seats at the Grand Ole Opry; home of the longest continuous live country radio show in history. We’ll be “stars for a day” with our own musical recording at the RCA Studio B with the opportunity to stand where Elvis himself stood, recording over 200 songs. Add to all of this, a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame, a special evening at the famed Wildhorse Saloon and some true “honky tonk hopping” and this tour is sure to have you humming long after you return home.

Note: Guests should be in adequate physical condition. Full participation may require periods of standing or walking along graded terrain, steps, inclines, and uneven surfaces. Participants with physical limitations should take this into account.
