Deep South USA Tours

The Deep South has its own distinctive flavour – the complexities of its history have shaped a region that is vibrant and full of heritage.  There is no mistaking the dulcet tones of a Southern drawl, the fine cuisine - from crispy fried chicken, shrimp and grits, to Mississippi mud pie - or the lively music scene. No trip to the Southern states would be complete without experiencing the party atmosphere in New Orleans and Bourbon Street – the heart of the French Quarter.

Our Deep South America holidays will also take you to walk the line in Nashville, Tennessee, the music city that was home to so many musical legends. Sail the mighty Mississippi River and learn how it impacted The Civil Rights Movement, as well as explore the historical and elegant cities of Vicksburg and Natchez.  Be seduced by the rugged and lush landscapes and immerse yourself in diverse and exciting cultures, on what will be a truly unique American experience.

Tipping

Tipping is a way of life in the US – aim to leave around 18-20% of the final bill if you feel the service merits it.  

Currency

In America they use the US dollar ($). $1 = 100 cents. 

Timezone

Due to its size, the Deep South sits across two time zones. Georgia and east Tennessee are within the Eastern Time Zone (ETZ), which is five hours behind GMT. Heading further west, middle and west Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi are all within the Central Time Zone (CTZ), which is six hours behind GMT.  

Electricity

Mains voltage in the US is 120 volts AC, 60 Hz. American flat-pin plugs are used – pick one up before you travel and that way you’ll have no trouble using electrical appliances abroad. 

Climate

Generally, the Deep South has sunny weather throughout the year. Spring sees warm days mixed with cooler mornings and evenings – expect to see blossoming gardens and temperatures in the early 20s. Summers are hot, with days reaching averages of 27 degrees Celsius. Autumn (or fall) is prone – like spring – to cooler temperatures, although don’t be surprised if the summer’s heat seeps into play, too. Winters in the Deep South are cold, but still warmer than that of the UK. Average winter temperatures are around 11 degrees, while there is also an increase in rainfall at this time.

Passports and visas

British citizens don’t need a visa for holidays in America – only their passports. Make sure yours is valid for the duration of your stay before you travel, and be sure to keep it on you at all times.
