Deep South and Delta Blues | Escorted Tour

Holiday Duration: 9 Nights

Frontier’s Personal Experience

“The home to music and icons present and past. The Broadway is one very long street lined with honky tonks playing live music of every genre from morning to night. I spent a most enjoyable couple of nights here. During the day the museums and history will blow you away. I actually sat and played the same piano that Elivs used at RCA Studio B and sang Blackbird (by the Beatles) accompanied by a local band in one of the bars!”

Deep South and Delta Blues

Deep South and Delta Blues

Join a group of just 13 like-minded people to explore America’s Deep South. Travelling by minibus. you will trace the roots of American music in the Deep South and experience the unique cultural landscape and volatile history that gave birth to the blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll. Days move a little slower in the South, as you pass the time with a sweet tea or a Jack and Coke, taking in the sights and sounds of Music Row in Nashville, Beale Street in Memphis and Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Take in the heritage properties of Natchez and Houma, and savour authentic Southern hospitality and cuisine as you float down the Mississippi. You will travel in air-conditioned modern private vehicles with extra-large windows and wide seats with a decent amount of leg room and free Wi-Fi. If you would like to extend the holiday please ask your Frontier America expert travel consultant for advice.

Accommodation throughout the tour is in three star hotels except in Natchez where you will stay in a Guest House.

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
