Our sample itinerary
MEMPHIS & LAS VEGAS
DAY ONE: Friday 11th August: Depart London for our morning 9 hour flight across the Atlantic to our gateway airport where you will clear immigration and US customs. Here you will have a couple hours to refresh yourself, grab a drink or two before our onward 2 hour flight to Memphis Tennessee. A late afternoon arrival and transfer to a four star down-town hotel. After check in, then why not explore the delights of the Beale Street night - life.
DAY TWO Saturday 12th August: Our Guided Tour of Memphis will give your an over-view of Elvis home town, and you will see the areas where Elvis grew up, went to school, lived, played, recorded, and performed, and we end up on Elvis Presley Boulevard and lunch-time where you can take your first visit to Graceland during this special 40th anniversary year.
DAY THREE Sunday 13th August: A day trip to Tupelo, and a visit to Elvis’ birthplace. This Mississippi town has all the charm and splendour of southern hospitality. There will be a group lunch stop and plenty of time to explore the fascinating Clap-Board Shack homestead, Museum, and Chapel. Our arrival back in Memphis will be late afternoon and a second opportunity to hit the town running – perhaps an evening meal at the Rendezvous rip restaurant?
DAY FOUR Monday 14th August: After breakfast there will be the opportunity this morning to visit Sun and Stax, before heading out to Whitehaven and another chance to explore the Graceland complex. In the evening there is expected to be a special 40th anniversary concert at the FedEx with lots of exciting guests.
DAY FIVE Tuesday 15th August: During the day a chance to catch some of the Mall stores that keep Memphis folk feeling good and looking good, before we head out to Graceland for the annual candlelight ceremony. The world’s media will be on hand to record this anniversary, and you may just be interviewed by our friends at British Television who will be joining us on Elvis Presley Boulevard.
DAY SIX Wednesday 16th August: There will be loads of Elvis events, swap and sell opportunities, meets and greets across the city plus in the evening we will host our legendary “Meet The Brits” party on our last evening in Memphis, before we head out west to the Bright Light City of Las Vegas.
DAY SEVEN Thursday 17th August: Lunch time departure to Las Vegas, Nevada – and here we celebrate in the Nevada city where Elvis broke all showroom attendance records. Vegas is a 24 hour a day resort and you can catch the best shows in town visit the coolest night clubs and live the dream.
DAY EIGHT Friday 18th August: Near to Las Vegas there are Ghost Towns, The Hoover Dam, Death Valley, and the Grand Canyon. Lots of optional excursion opportunities or perhaps you’ll want to laze by the pool in sumptuous luxury, desert heat, and outdoor entertainment whilst sipping on a Pina Colada
DAY NINE Saturday 19th August: Your stay in Las Vegas is for you to do as you chose. Catch a baseball game, go horse-riding in the desert, play golf, or play the fool in the dozens of spectacular casinos that keep this town buzzing. You can take a two hour free course to learn how to gamble, or perhaps hire a car for a day and explore the desert state.
DAY TEN Sunday 20th August: There is plenty of Elvis sights and sounds in Las Vegas. See where Elvis performed in what was the Las Vegas Hilton, and follow the Viva Las Vegas trail and catch the sights where Elvis filmed this wonderful movie, plus you never know Ann-Margret might just be appearing in cabaret.
DAY ELEVEN Monday 21st August: Lunch time check out as we say goodbye to Las Vegas and head off to our departure airport or our flight back to the UK, or onwards and upward to the Hawaiian Islands.
DAY TWELVE Tuesday 22nd August Early morning arrival back in the UK
MEMPHIS - VEGAS PLUS HAWAII
Or if you chose the Hawaii option this morning you will wake up in Honolulu - Aloha!– how exciting is that boys and girls? No visitor to the Hawaiian Island of Oahu can miss out on a visit to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona – a memorial that Elvis & the Colonel helped to fund with the proceeds from a benefit concert on March 25th 1961 at the Bloch Arena
DAY THIRTEEN Wednesday 23rd August: There is so much to see in Hawaii, be it following the Elvis trail, checking out the location sites where Elvis was filmed or performed, or finding those hidden hideaways that so fascinated Elvis and his friends, and we know where they are – or why not explore the exciting dramatic terrain such as the most famous sight of all – Diamond Head
DAY FOURTEEN Thursday 24th August: Sun, sea, surf and beaches to die for – public beaches in Honolulu are a paradise – Hawaiian Style – secret beaches on Oahu are exotic and more. We will offer you lots of adventures, and if you are go-getter then learn to surf, or water ski, or jet ski.
DAY FIFTEEN Friday 25th August: Entertainment each night in abundance be it cultural shows at the Polynesian Cultural Centre, or magic night clubs – entertainment for all ages. We can’t guess what might be staged two years from now, but you can guess it will be world class
DAY SIXTEEN Saturday 26th August: Take time to relax, make time to party, and spend time where Elvis loved to vacation. – spoil yourself for once – you know it makes sense. The hotels that our friends at Yesterday Once More have selected are guaranteed to be comfortable, clean, and special – just for you. With tour guides who know the destinations, and a like-minded lively group of travellers, this will be the perfect mix of fans and friends for that once in a lifetime holiday honouring the memory and legacy of Elvis Presley. Our last night party will cement memories forever.
DAY SEVENTEEN Sunday 27th August: Time to say “Aloha” to Hawaii, because Aloha means both Hello and Goodbye, and we joing our flights back to the UK.
DAY EIGHTEEN Monday 28th August: Memories pressed between the pages – we arrive back in London.
