The tour exceeded my expectations. The entire tour was aligned with the tour description: Tastes and Sounds of the South. The experiences were all the tour information outlined and more. The tour manager, Austin, was absolutely outstanding. He was efficient, courteous, and very attentive to the patrons.

The most competent and professional travel company I have ever used.

Trip surpassed our expectations. Great seats for the GrandOle Opry, personalized tours of the various recording studios, wonderful day at Graceland and the accommodations for the Jazz Fest were optimal - all buses to the fest started from and ended at the Sheraton where we were booked. Tour guide Ann was exceptional.

Our tour guide did an excellent job. He was very pleasant, knowledgable and helpful.
