Description

There aren’t many places in the US – or the world, frankly – that can match the Deep South for charm, character, and quirkiness. This 12-day trip pulls back the curtain on this unique part of the country by way of groovy Charleston, cosmopolitan Atlanta, sultry Savannah, the Elvis mecca of Memphis, and other hotspots, while serving up heaping helpings of colonial estates, Cajun cuisine, country music, whiskey, and fun. It’s different down here. Way different. Come on down and git yer drawl on...

G Adventures combines the best cultural, scenic, culinary, and social experiences into one trip that leaves you feeling humbled, grateful, appreciative, and eager for more. Their organization and professionalism made traveling a breeze. Our trip left us feeling fulfilled, but it took me only a couple minutes with WiFi to start researching our next G Adventure.
