Contiki launches new Deep South USA tour

Contiki launches new Deep South USA tour

Comprised of 34 incredible trips across 37 epic states, Contiki’s new USA & Canada 2017 brochure takes young travellers on the great American (and Canadian) road trip.

Trips take in everything from the bright lights of Las Vegas and New York City, to the stunning natural beauty of the Rockies, and the bronzed bodies of Miami Beach.

An exciting new addition in 2017 is the brand new Boot, Scoot ‘n’ Blues Deep South itinerary where hipsters, history, rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm ‘n’ blues and southern fried everything are on the agenda.

Contiki’s new 12 day Boot, Scoot ‘n’ Blues itinerary explores the very best of the Southern states: Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

From Dallas to Austin and San Antonia, travellers can experience the vibing Texas music scene, shop for cowboy boots on South Congress, stuff themselves silly with barbequed treats, and channel their inner cowboy with a morning trail ride.


In New Orleans, guests learn how to cook up classic gumbo, and, in the Mecca of Rhythm and Blues, visit the home of The King at Graceland. 

Guest enjoy a traditional southern meal before attending Nashville’s acclaimed roots and Americana variety show Music City Roots, and finish the all-American road trip in sunny Florida.

The Boot, Scoot ‘n’ Blues trip will commence on May 23rd 2017.

Operating in the US and Canada region for longer than any other youth travel provider, Contiki’s 2017 offering is the product of many years’ experience taking young people on epic journeys across state lines and through diverse landscapes.
