Project Description

If you are an Elvis Presley fan—or a music fan—don’t miss this Elvis tour featuring many of the places important in his life. From his hometown to his final burial place, this tour brings Elvis—and music—to life!

Begin with an overnight in New Orleans, where your expert Local Guide knows the sights and sounds of the Old World City. From New Orleans, travel to Tupelo, Mississippi, to visit Elvis’ Birthplace & Museum. This small, 2-room house was built by Elvis’ father. Enjoy seeing memorabilia from Elvis’ childhood. Stay three nights in Memphis, where your expert Local Guide knows Memphis’ history, as well as the hard-to-find, hidden Elvis sites. In addition to guided sightseeing, your Memphis experience includes visits to the Stax Museum, dedicated to American Soul music; the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, tracing Memphis’ cultural and musical past; and Sun Studio, probably the world’s most famous recording studio. Here, you’ll touch Elvis’ first microphone and relive the studio’s history.
You’ll also visit Graceland, Elvis’ palatial estate, and walk through the same rooms he did. You’ll even board his private jet! Also visit the Meditation Garden, where Elvis went to reflect on life and where he is laid to rest.

In Nashville, where you’ll spend three nights, visit Studio B, Nashville’s oldest surviving recording studio and where Elvis made 262 recordings. As one of country music’s most important recording studios, it is a must for any music fan. You’ll also visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, home to Elvis’ “solid-gold” Cadillac, and the world-famous Grand Ole Opry, where you’ll see a show. You’ll also have a private performance and discussion with Johnny and June Cash’s only son, John Carter Cash.

For Elvis fans and music lovers, this Elvis & the Southern Sounds tour designed for value-minded travelers is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
