Summary

Embrace the best of Kentucky and Tennessee on a 13-Day guided tour that whisks you from the countryside to the birthplace of country music. Enjoy a private tour of a Kentucky thoroughbred retirement farm in the rolling hills just outside of Louisville, then indulge in an exclusive chocolate and bourbon pairing on the infamous Bourbon Trail. On your way to Nashville, see behind-the-scenes of Churchill Downs during a guided walking tour. In Memphis, see Graceland — the former estate of Elvis — on a private, after-hours tour of the mansion-turned-museum, then explore the city your way: Visit Sun Studio, where legends such as B.B. King once recorded, or see the Stax Museum of American Soul, an interactive tribute to soul music complete with exhibits and vintage recording equipment.
