The United States is so vast that you could easily become lost or overwhelmed when you try and plan an itinerary. Some things are best left to the experts!

If you have never been on a group tour before, you won’t know what to expect. When you choose the experts in group travel, Globus, you’ll get the ideal holiday – experiences aplenty and all the details taken care for you.

The southern states of America are a fantastic place to visit because they are so rich with culture and history and have a real point of difference. It’s also so much easier to get there as there are direct flights from New Zealand to Houston, so if you’re a music lover who would like to immerse yourself in the legendary southern hospitality and the rich musical history, don’t miss the upcoming tours!

There’s so much more to a coach tour with Globus than sitting and watching the scenery go by – you’ll  visit the cities and landmarks that have influenced America’s musical heritage with country, rock-n-roll, soul, blues, and jazz all thrown into the mix. Start in Nashville and visit the Country Music Hall of Fame; RCA Studio B, one of the country’s most important recording studios; and the Grand Ole Opry, where you have reserved seats.

In Memphis, visit the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, celebrating the great Memphis soul music; Sun Studio, the most famous recording studio, which launched the careers of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and more; and Elvis Presley’s Graceland. Travel deep into the heart of the Mississippi Delta, the “Birthplace of the Blues,” and visit the Delta Blues Museum, dedicated to the blues.

Other musical landmarks on this tour include the B.B. King Museum and the Louisiana Delta Music Museum, where you will learn more about Louisiana Delta musicians such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, and more. In New Orleans, visit the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park.

The itinerary is comprehensive and interesting, but it’s also flexible. If another highlight catches your eye, or you would just like to explore your own, you are more than welcome to, either during free times, or in place of organised outings. It’s your holiday – get as involved as you choose to.
