This morning we will embark on a walking tour of Savannah, where we will see some of the many restored Federal and Regency buildings. We will view the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the Colonial Park Cemetery (established about 1750) , the Oglethorpe Monument and Chippewa Square (where the waiting for the bus scene was filmed in Forrest Gump).

Day 3 - Wander round Bonaventure Cemetery

Nestled beneath a canopy of live oak and magnolias laced with Spanish moss, Bonaventure is a Southern Gothic sculpture garden consistently named on travel lists as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world. Savannahians have been interring their dead on the grounds of this former 18th century plantation since well before the Civil War. We will learn more about its history on a two hour walking tour. Later on, a short drive brings us to Charleston. Our first stop will be the City Market, one of the nation's oldest public markets and today many vendors sell art, food and jewellery. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore this old city. You may want to visit the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, which is considered to be one of the three most historically significant colonial buildings in the US. The declaration of independence was read from its balcony for the citizens of South Carolina. Throughout the years this structure has functioned as a custom house, public market, public meeting place, military prison, post office and barracks.

However, most visitors come for the gardens which are enormous and filled with azaleas, lillies, roses, magnolias and many more species. These are the oldest public gardens in the US, opening their doors to visitors in 1870.

Our guided tour focuses on the splendid garden and the opulent mansion. Rooms of note include the Jungle Room which includes an indoor waterfall. It was built as a den and was later converted into a recording studio, where Elvis recorded his last two albums. The Trophy Building displays records, movie posters, memorabilia and awards. The rest of the afternoon is yours to enjoy.

Day 10 - Visit Clarksdale, the birthplace of the Delta Blues, continue to Vicksburg

Today we travel along Old Highway 61, more commonly referred to as The Blues Highway. Our first stop will be in Clarksdale, Mississippi at the junction of Highways 61 and 49. Legend says that it was at these crossroads that Robert Johnson, the godfather of the blues, sold his soul to the Devil. Johnson's music later went on to influence some of the most highly regarded artists and musicians in modern history, from Bob Dylan to Eric Clapton. Known as the birthplace of Delta Blues, Clarksdale is the premier city for the preservation of the arts and music of the Mississippi Delta as we will see with visits to The Delta Blues Museum and a local juke joint. After a uniquely American experience immersed in blues culture along this famous route, we end our day in the historic riverboat gambling town of Vicksburg along the Mississippi River.

Day 11 - Cajun Country swamp tour, continue to New Orleans

Our route today takes us through Cajun Country. We will stop for a swamp tour before we arrive in New Orleans. Experience the tranquillity of the swamp from a boat, looking out for alligators and birds such as little blue herons and great white egrets. Otherwise known as the 'big easy', New Orleans is an eclectic mix of European, Creole and Cajun culture which manifests in every aspect of the architecture, cuisine and musical scene. It has to be one of the most diverse and intoxicating cities in the US, with the scents of delicious food and strains of jazz music around every corner. We will check into our hotel and have the evening free to explore the French Quarter and its many bars, restaurants and live music venues where we can listen to some jazz, perhaps whilst sipping some Southern Comfort, which originated in the city. New Orleans is well known for its food, and the local food specialties are well worth a try, in particular spicy jambalaya, gumbo or the huge po'boys (submarine sandwiches, often filled with shrimp).

There is plenty to enjoy in the city just by wandering around the streets and listening to the street musicians playing jazz, blues or honky tonk - frankly the highest quality buskers you'll find anywhere! Your Explore Leader will help you organise your day based on your interests, and in the evening Frenchmen Street is the place to go to find the area's best live bands.

Why book this trip

There is no more diverse trip in the United States than this trip through the Southern states. It gives a comprehensive mix of history, music and food - we learn more about the Civil War and the South's history of Black Rights struggles. The music is eclectic, from country in Nashville, jazz in New Orleans and blues in Memphis, and the food is equally iconic, as we try gumbo, Southern barbeque, shrimp and good 'down home' soul food.

Desert areas can be extremely hot in the summer months (49°), though temperatures can drop dramatically at night. The mountains are cooler and wetter especially in the north of the Rockies. At the beginning and end of the season there may still be some snow around in the high passes and it can be cold, whereas in mid-summer the day time temperatures can soar.

Clothing

Pack for hot conditions for June, July and August departures.

Footwear

Trainers and/or sandals for travelling.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

Bring only the bare essentials - one main bag plus a small daypack for walking and for personal items. Main luggage cannot be accessed during the day. Soft luggage is more practical as it is stored in the trailer during travel. Bring plastic bags to keep things dry. Laundry facilities are available at various points during the trip.

Equipment

Bring a water bottle (1-2 litre capacity), high factor sunblock and plastic bags to keep things dry. You may need insect repellent especially in June and July. We also recommend that you take another set of photo ID with you to take out in the evening, as most bars in southern America ID everyone regardless of age and you may wish to leave your passport in your accommodation.

Tipping

Explore leader
Tour Leader: At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
In North America tipping 15%-20% is a recognised part of life across the service industry, including restaurants, activity suppliers, taxis and guides. Local staff will look to you for personal recognition of particular services provided. Unlike other Explore trips, during our trips in North America our Explore leaders will not operate a tips kitty. However, they will be more than happy to provide guidance throughout the trip on who to tip when and to suggest appropriate amounts.
