Elvis fans better bring your 'Blue Suede Shoes' and join Special Journeys on this ULTIMATE DREAM trip! Our tour begins by traveling to Memphis where we stop at Sun Studios to see Elvis Presley's microphone used in 1954 when he recorded "That's All Right" - his first song! Sun Studios is so great, it was even voted as one of the world's best musical attractions. Next up on this fantastic Elvis tour, we will visit the Hard Rock Café and try their great food, including the traveler favorite dish-Twisted Mac, Cheese and Chicken!

Then we'll travel to Tupelo, Mississippi for the 21st annual Elvis Festival. We will join fans from all over the world as you experience The King's music genre from rock and roll to gospel. The festival includes many Elvis impersonators competing to win this year's award. There will be specialty tours, a parade and many other unique and fun events to give you a true Elvis experience! You can see the first school that Elvis attended, the Tupelo Hardware store where he purchased his first guitar and the Tupelo Fairgrounds where he performed concerts in 1956 and 1957.

Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™ & Full Fare Price Disclosure

  • Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™ means there are absolutely no hidden costs - everything is included: all meals (breakfast at hotel, lunch and dinner both at a restaurant), lodging in your own, regular bed, and all transportation including local pickup and drop off in your city, all attractions, entertainment and activities, an experienced tour leader and experienced staff care in 1:3 and 1:4 small groups. Travelers only need to bring souvenir and snack money.

  • All prices shown are round trip prices and include all mandatory taxes and fees. Note: Soda cards on Royal Caribbean cruises are at your own expense (to keep the trip price fair for everyone).

  • Vendor & fuel price increases between the time of the traveler’s initial deposit and the due date for final payment are covered by Special Journeys—you never pay extra for Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™.

  • Travelers that need to travel with a dedicated 1:1 staff require an additional, reduced price fare to cover the costs for that staff.

  • All trips with a domestic flight component cover one 50 pound checked bag. See the trip description for 10+ day trips as 2 bags are usually covered then. The cost for additional or overweight bags will be shown on your trip itinerary. There is no fee for carry-on bags but they are limited in size to the then current airline standards.

  • Medical equipment does not count as luggage but you must notify us in advance so we have room to transport this equipment!

  • Some trips require a passport (see trip description). We recommend getting the passport book, not the passport card. It can take 2 to 3 months to receive a passport so apply as early as possible. They are good for 10 years!

  • We offer interest-free payment plans that allow you to finish paying for up to half of the trip cost after you return.

  • You can send in money (pre-pay) for a trip to be selected later.
