Anticipation swelled as eight master musicians took the stage in a New Orleans jazz venue. Surrounded by soulful tunes, I reflected on the once-in-a-lifetime moments I had experienced over the past nine days: I belted a song (badly) into Johnny Cash’s microphone and dined with Elvis Presley’s best boyhood friend. On Insight Vacations’ “Southern Grace” Luxury Gold journey through Nashville, Memphis, Natchez and New Orleans, I stepped into the lives of legends for an unparalleled perspective of the sounds and flavors of the American South.
Insight Vacations’ Luxury Gold itineraries are like no other escorted tour I have ever experienced. From the onset of the “Southern Grace” journey, we were transported to VIP events and granted private access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Each day was seamless with swift transportation on a spacious, Wi-Fi-equipped motor coach and prompt baggage handling. Stays in legendary hotels such as Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans ensured unforgettable memories of the American South from beginning to end.
