Lose yourself to the Southern Rhythms

America’s Deep South has its own easy rhythm and laid-back vibe, an unhurried approach to life that chimes with its sleepy landscape and fun-loving towns and cities. Discover it for yourself on a Cosmos escorted tour of Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans and Florida.

Cruise along the mighty Mississippi aboard the American Queen paddle steamer. Toast jazz quartets and feast on jambalaya in New Orleans. Discover the heart of country music in Nashville, and the story of rock and roll in Memphis as you stand behind the microphone in Sun Studios that first recorded it. Tour Graceland while you're there, and pay your respects to Elvis Presley.

White-washed colonial mansions and mint juleps beckon on a lazy summer’s day in Savannah, while Orlando offers theme-park fun and boat trips through the strangely beautiful Everglades. They know how to have a good time down there, and with the help of our legendary Tour Directors, they'll make sure you do, too.
