Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : New Orleans Arrival

Location: New Orleans

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

Welcome to New Orleans, Louisiana’s most important port city. People from all over the world have been arriving in New Orleans since the Sieur de Bienville laid out the city’s streets in 1718. The city today is a unique blend of Spanish, French, Caribbean, African, and Anglo-Saxon influences. This is obvious in the food, architecture, and of course, the music.

Your Tour Director will be available to you in the evening to plan your stay in this charming and bustling city.

Day 2 : Tour New Orleans

Location: New Orleans

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

The day is yours to immerse yourself in the charm and excitement of one of America’s most unique cities and for you to take in the French flavor and grandeur of New Orleans. May we suggest starting the day with a visit to a working plantation (optional). Explore the French Quarter with its trademark wrought-iron balconies overlooking the narrow cobblestone streets.

Day 3 : New Orleans To Baton Rouge To Natchez

Location: New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Natchez

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Hampton Inn & Suites Natchez, Natchez, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

This morning, we will travel to the capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, and conduct a brief city tour. From there, we will travel via the historic Natchez Trace Parkway to Natchez. The parkway is a 444-mile drive through exceptional scenery and years of Indigenous and European history.

Natchez is the oldest European settlement on the Mississippi River. Before the Civil War, wealthy plantation owners from Louisiana built magnificent Antebellum homes here because the area was considered safer from flooding. This afternoon, we will visit one of the homes and learn about the wealth of these 19th-century millionaires.

Day 4 : Natchez To The Mississippi River Valley To Memphis

Location: Natchez, Memphis

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Crowne Plaza Memphis Downtown, Memphis, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

Leave Natchez and drive on to Memphis, home of ‘Sun Records’. As a large river port, it was one of the most important links in the cotton trade before the Civil War. Memphis is also known as the “home of the blues.” A brief city tour will take you to the city’s liveliest street, Beale Street, where the blues and other types of music are played nightly in almost a dozen clubs.

Travel along historic Front Street, known as Cotton Row in the days when cotton traders and merchants conducted business here. Of course, no visit to Memphis would be complete without a visit to Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley (optional).

Day 5 : Travel From Memphis To Nashville

Location: Memphis, Nashville

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Drury Plaza Hotel Nashville Downtown, Nashville, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

Continue on to Nashville, known as the capital of country music. The city earned its title with the very first airing of the WSM Barn Dance radio program, the forerunner of the Grand Ole Opry. The newly renovated Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville, once the home of the Grand Ole Opry, the studios near Music Row, and Opryland itself attest to Nashville’s reputation as the most important city in country music.

Day 6 : Tour Nashville, Tennessee

Location: Tour Nashville

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Drury Plaza Hotel Nashville Downtown, Nashville, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

Begin your day in this dynamic and thriving cultural and state capital of Tennessee with a morning city tour. While exploring the city’s landmarks, perhaps you’ll discover a new country music classic before they even hit the charts while visiting one of the many recording studios around town. Perhaps enjoy dinner and a show in the evening as an optional excursion.

Day 7 : Travel From Nashville To Chattanooga To Atlanta

Location: Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: the Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Airport South, Atlanta, or similar

Meals Included: No Meals

Leaving Music City, we head to Chattanooga, home to the famous Choo Choo and which has received national recognition for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront.

In the afternoon, our trails lead us back to Atlanta where you may want to check out one of the sites you were not able to experience at the start of the tour like the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and CNN Center.

Day 8 : Atlanta Departure

Location: Atlanta

Meals Included: No Meals

Morning at your leisure before departure. Your Tour Director will be available to assist you in arranging individual transfers to Atlanta International Airport or with sightseeing recommendations for the day should you want to enjoy this great city further. We hope you have had a memorable journey and look forward to the opportunity to host your next visit to America.

Easy booking, nothing was a problem, prompt reply to emails. We did the Pearls of Puglia Tour. Fantastic region to explore, tour guide Sabrina was excellent and our other local guides were also great.

Excellent Service!

01-Mar-2020

Received excellent service and suggestions for a tour we planned for our son and daughter when they toured the Amalfi Coast in August. Hotels were all in great locations close to the action and all excellent 4 or 5 star. Would definitely use or recommend Omega tours to friends or family.

09-May-2024

We used Omega Tours for a trip to Rome & the Amalfi Coast. Michael Rizzo did an outstanding job and answered all of my never ending questions. Planning and arrangements were easy with lots of suggestions and good advice. The drivers they arranged were on time, friendly and informative. The tours that they arranged were on time and the guides were well versed, our only issue was with one of the guides which isn’t a reflection on Omega. The hotels that were selected were very nice. The communication with Omega was good including when we needed some information while on the trip. I would definitely recommend them.

I had wonderful time

04-Oct-2022

Just came back from my 11 days Portugal tours I booked through Omega tours. And I had wonderful time. I joined a small group tours, which is really great. The tour guide Myriam is one of the best tour guide I ever had. I always travel solo( and sometimes join a group tours )and tried to travel every year if I can . I am surely looking forward to booked more tours with you.

Was pleasantly surprised that there were only 4 people on the Best of Portugal tour. Our guide Cristina was fabulous and was a wealth of information on everything Portugal. A great experience overall and would highly recommend.

Had a great time and an amazing experience. The touring company was excellent, punctual with clean buses and friendly and well informed tour guides. Hotels were nice, clean with good location, great service and good breakfast. We are recommending it to everyone and hoping one day we can repeat it.

Very pleased with this well organized tour of Italy

30-Apr-2022

Very pleased with this well organized tour of Italy. A great balance of sightseeing and free time. Exceptional local guide and driver. I’m not sure I would consider the hotels chosen to be 4 star - with the exception of Hotel St Martin in Rome which was great - but the others were very clean and well located. Would definitely choose Omega tours again when booking group travel.

Lisa M  

Most beautiful trip I've ever taken.

07-Jun-2022

Most beautiful trip I've ever taken. Having all my hotels and pickup and drop- offs taken care of by Omega Tours made this trip so easy to enjoy! Michael was amazing. He was always available to answer all of our questions and he made sure we had everything we needed in order to travel internationally during a crazy pandemic!

Joseph L  

Everything we experienced was exactly as described

25-Oct-2022

We took the Italy Deluxe Tour in September of 2022. Everything we experienced was exactly as described. Exceptional accommodations, travel and guides were provided in each city. Michael, our booking agent, gave us complete confidence that we had chosen the right tour operator by his attention to detail and prompt correspondence. We are delighted with Omega Tours and have already recommended them to many friends.
