The Tunes of Glory tour was a sensory delight! The blend of iconic musicians like Little Richard with the stunning landscapes of Tennessee, Georgia, and the Carolinas created an atmosphere of pure joy. Travelling Time's meticulous planning ensured we experienced the best of the Southern states, from the Great Smoky Mountains to the vibrant cities of Georgia. A perfect harmony of music, history, and Southern hospitality.

Musical Legends and Southern Charm

13-Oct-2022

Embarking on the Tunes of Glory Escorted Tour was like stepping into a musical time capsule filled with the soulful beats of Otis Redding and the electrifying energy of Little Richard. Travelling Time curated a journey that seamlessly blended musical legends with the rich civil war history of the American South. The Southern charm and hospitality we encountered in each state added an extra layer of warmth to an already fantastic experience. Highly recommended!
