    Our guide Austin Coop was excellent. He was attentive and knowledgable. One man on the trip could not speak or hear. He wrote out all key information to make the man's trip good for him.

    Definitely lots of music and food! Loved the Opry, Graceland, the plantation tours and dinners. Our tour director was so organized and we loved finding treats, information or trip aids in our seat. The optional swamp tour was fun and we saw so many gators!
