Here begins your 10-day adventure of exploring the awesome Deep South, with all the legendary tunes and sizzling cuisine to prove it.

Take a private transfer to your slick hotel on the Honky Tonk Highway – within reach of many of Nashville’s major attractions – before heading downtown to the heart of the action.

Day 2: NASHVILLE LEGENDS & A CHOCOLATE FACTORY

Take a private tour around Fontanel Mansion, the one-time home of country megastar Barbara Mandrell. Head to the GooGoo Clusters Chocolate Factory for a chocolate masterclass with wine tastings. Spend an afternoon of free time in the city before hitting up the Honky Tonk Highway at night

 

Shrug off your jetlag with a leisurely lie-in, enjoying that awesome feeling of knowing the adventure stretches out before you. Later this morning, we’ll head to the Fontanel Mansion for a private tour of country music megastar, Barbara Mandrell’s former home. Wander around the 33,000 square-foot log cabin with all the rustic charm you’d expect from the home of country royalty.

 

Afterwards it’s time for another Nashville speciality: GooGoo Clusters. This local delicacy comes in the form of chocolate, caramel, marshmallow and peanuts all rolled into clusters of sweet goodness. Taste it for yourself at the GooGoo chocolate factory for an exclusive chocolate and wine tasting session, where you can roll up your sleeves and make your own GooGoo while trying out local wines. Tuck in and enjoy – it’s educational, after all. The rest of the afternoon is then yours to soak in the sights of Nashville. We recommend you check out the Country Music Hall of Fame, the famous venue of the Ryman Auditorium or the Johnny Cash Museum for more music must-sees. History buffs should pop by the 42ft replica of the Ancient Greek Parthenon (the “Athens of the South”) and for anyone feeling peckish, Hattie B’s is calling for some Nashville hot chicken. Come evening, be sure to hit up the Honky Tonk Highway – the pumping music here is not to be missed.

Tuck into a sizzling barbecue of Memphis ribs before hitting up the delights of Beale Street by night

 

After enjoying the country music of Nashville, next up it’s time for some blues and rock ‘n’ roll in Memphis. This morning we’ll hit the road to the hometown of Elvis. We’ll kick things off with an orientation walk around the vibrant streets, soaking in the unique buzz and energy of the city. Grab some of Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken for lunch before checking into your central hotel (with another beauty of an outdoor pool) for a quick freshen-up. We’ll then walk in the footsteps of history with an afternoon visit to the Lorraine Motel, seeing the infamous balcony of Room 306 where Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated in 1968. Now the National Civil Rights Museum, here you can learn all about the rich history and acts of courage associated with America’s game-changing movement.

 

For dinner, get ready for a smokin’ barbecue – Memphis style.
