  • Embark on a road trip across the most soulful and hospitable part of the USA, from the historic settlements to the musical centres.
  • Take a sobering look at the history of slavery and segregation in the South and celebrate the bravery and humanity of heroes like Rosa Parks.
  • From biscuits to barbecue, savour Southern cuisine in all its glory. Make sure you’ve got a bib handy, as it tends to get messy.
  • Tap your toes and shake the floorboards during a line dancing lesson, then get your honkytonk on with locals in Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon.
The "Southern Comfort USA" tour starts in Atlanta and ends in New Orleans. It is an explorer tour that takes 12 days taking you through Charleston, Vicksburg, Atlanta and 5 other destinations in the USA.

Take a journey into the soul of the USA on this 12-day tour of the country’s Deep South. The air from Atlanta to Memphis is heavy with humidity and history, filled with the sound of country twang and trap music, and rich with the smoke from the local barbecue joints that seem to lie around every corner. From the creaking boards of the honky-tonk music joints in Nashville, to the elegant Victorian homes that line Rainbow Row in Savannah and the vibrant melting pot that is New Orleans, this tour will show you the best of the bold, brash, and boisterous Southern USA.

Piyumi's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“I had an amazing time. Highlights were Kruger national park and the Delta and the nighlty camp fires under the stars. It was a well planned trip mainly due to our tour leader Thabang, Lizzie our cook and Vincent our driver. There were long drives as per the itinerary but it was the only way to see the beautiful southern africa in a timely manner. Thank you for a great trip!”

Milan's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“The tour was very good. Overall organisation, local and international, as well. The host family were beautiful and helpful people. The food was very nice and the room simple but precisely what we paid for. Only the second day was a bit slow and not really exciting. But otherwise 4 out of 5.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • The South gets mighty steamy in the summertime. Pack appropriately, drink plenty of water and you might even grow to love it. September through to November is hurricane season, so if you’re travelling over this period you should pack a rain jacket and waterproof shoes.
  • You'll be travelling in a van with a group, so conditions may feel a little cramped. We think this is all part of the adventure of road travel in the USA, and friendships form fast in tight quarters.
  • You're in the Deep South of the USA, so expect a lot of (delicious) fried food and barbecue. Vegetarians may have fewer options, as a lot of southern cuisine is meat-based.
  • The USA is a massive place, so it’s a good thing you’ve got one of our local leaders to give you the low-down. In some of the cities we visit, certain neighbourhoods are deemed safer than others. Your leader will fill you in on where to go and where to avoid.
