Enjoy a backstage tour of the news network, CNN before we embark on a journey through scenic Georgia countryside to Savannah.
This famously beautiful city is a hub for creative types, but it’s the elegant 18th and 19th-century townhouses, brick ‘sidewalks’, towering oak trees draped in Spanish moss, and its warm southern hospitality that captures the hearts of visitors.
Day 3 Savannah
Begin the day with a guided walking tour, taking in the city’s Civil War history, three centuries worth of architectural prowess, and an old-time candy shop on historic River Street.
This afternoon is free to spend as you please.
Day 4 Charleston
This morning we cross the state line into South Carolina. We make a stop at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens en route, among the most beautiful public gardens in America since it was founded in 1676.
Day 5 Charleston
A crest of old-world charm, it’s impossible not to conjure images of an earlier era as we walk Charleston’s cobbled pathways lined with colonial mansions on our guided tour this morning.
This afternoon, there is an optional cruise in the harbour to see Fort Sumter, WWII aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, The Battery, and the Ravenal Bridge.

A full day of exploration awaits in the historical cities of Williamsburg and Jamestown. The former capital of the Virginia Colony until 1789, Williamsburg was England’s oldest, largest, richest, most populous colony and played a significant role in the American Revolution.
We’ll visit Colonial Williamsburg - one of the largest and most comprehensive living-history museums in the USA. Nearby Jamestown is home to two compelling attractions; Historic Jamestowne and Jamestown Settlement. While in the area, we’ll learn about the first permanent English settlement in North America.

Marbled monuments and memorials, eclectic neighbourhoods, and high-profile politicos; Washington DC - ‘America’s front yard’ - is a real treasure trove of historic sites and neoclassical buildings.

This evening, you can join an optional tour to see the city’s sights under the stars.
