Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 ARRIVE IN NASHVILLE.
Welcome to Nashville, the home of Country Music! At 6 pm, meet your traveling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.

Day 2 NASHVILLE.
Start your day with a sightseeing tour of Nashville, including Centennial Park with its full-size replica of Athens’ Parthenon, the recording studios of Music Row, and famous Honky Tonk Row. Afterward, enjoy a private guided tour of one of America’s most treasured music landmarks, the [LF] RYMAN AUDITORIUM, a National Historic Landmark. Known throughout the world as the “Mother Church of Country Music,” it served as home to the Grand Ole Opry for over 30 years. Its walls hold the country’s history—from Harry Houdini, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Bob Hope to incredible musical artists like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley. Tonight, you have reserved seats for an unforgettable show at the world-famous GRAND OLE OPRY. (B,L)

This morning, visit the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME to see its collection of costumes, memorabilia, instruments, and photographs. The remainder of your day is free to explore Nashville on your own. You may want to visit the museums of such stars as Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and George Jones.

Exhibits include the home of blues musician, “Sleepy” John Adams, and Flagg Grove School, the one-room schoolhouse once attended by young Anna Mae Bullock, aka Tina Turner. Arrive in Memphis, known as “Blues City,” where the first stop will be at SUN STUDIOS—probably the most famous recording studio in the world and where rock ‘n’ roll was first recorded. This historic studio launched the careers of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and many more. Arrive at your hotel, the Guest House at Graceland, for a 3-night stay.
