Why we like this deal:

Get a real taste of the south on a eleven-day journey through Kentucky and Tennessee. Kicking off in the flourishing city of Louisville, uncover a progressive food scene, visit a Shaker Village and learn how to cook a classic New Orleans dish. Journeying south, learn the tricks of the trade during a visit to a bourbon distillery before continuing to the country music capital of the world, Nashville, Tennessee. Here you’ll line dance in honky tonks, take part in a recording session in the Country Music Hall of Fame, feast on barbecue and of course sample some bourbon!
