Southern Style

We got married in Franklin Kentucky as part of the Southern Style tour in May 2019. We added on the CMA festival as an extra. We loved every single minute of this tour, so much so that we will be going back! The locations, hotels, attractions were second to none. Lynda and Rachael were first class, you couldn't ask for more helpful and polite people. We would totally recommend this tour to anyone who is into Country Music and the history of where it all began. Love Angela and Alan xx

Best tour we've ever done.

My wife and I did this tour in 2017. What a brilluant time we all had! Friendly guide and driver made the short journeys enjoyablle and fun. Loved that we only had to "move house" three times in a 12 night stay! With almost a fill week in Nashville (one of the reasons we booked) we saw and did loads. Second half of the tour was just amazing - anyone would! Looking around the site today for another Travelling Time Tour...you can't beat a company that cares!

Southen Hospitality at its best!

Absolutely loved this tour. Booked it as we wanted to spend the longest time in Nashville...We were sorry to leave after 6 glorious music filled days. However, I absolutely LOVED Muscle Shoals and the people & music we discovered there! Booked to go again in 2920 on Travelling Time's Soundtrack of the South Tour. Thank you to Linda, Shawn and Susanne for making our Southern Style Experience the best holiday ever!
