Feedback on our fabulous Deep south holiday

Hi Jo,

We wanted to send an email to say thank you for arranging such a fab holiday and to give you some feedback.

Feedback on America trip


We had a fantastic time and felt the balance between driving, site-seeing and stopovers was spot-on.  Once again thank you for your excellent help and knowledge – it really made a difference.

New Orleans

  • Hotel Monteleone was in the perfect location and all staff were extremely helpful. The valet parking was great. Breakfast was expensive but worth it.  
  • We’d recommend GW Finns for a fine dining meal – we booked on-line before we travelled
  • Another great place to eat and drink was


  • The Anchuca is a gem.  It’s an excellent venue, personal touch service and great breakfast included.
  • Easy and safe walk down-town.  Quirky touch where they pipe music onto the streets in the evening.
  • Would recommend the highway 61 coffee house


  • The Alluvian is lovely and smart. 
  • The in-house Giardinas  restaurant is excellent but definitely book before you go.  It’s private dining in a small room behind a curtain!


  • Although Clark House needs a good clean and air-con maintenance – it’s a beautiful house loads of space to relax and read/plan
  • Billy is the innkeeper and he knows the area very well and is informative about music venues and restaurants
  • Breakfast is an unusual but fantastic self-service continental arrangement.  Very good.
  • Ground Zero and Reds blues clubs are a must see.  They look intimidating but they’re not at all threatening.


  • Hampton Inn and Suites in a fantastic central location right next to Beale Street with easy self-parking next door.
  • We would highly recommend the Mojo music bus tour with a trip to Sun studio included
  • Eating in the BB King blues club was great with live music while you eat
  • We’d recommend Flights restaurant for a fine dining meal – we booked on-line before we travelled
  • All visitors should spend some time at the National Civil Rights Museum


  • Hilton Garden Inn was fine. Standard hotel not very central – but easy to park at and has restaurants nearby


  • Hampton Inn and Suites was very nice.  Easy walk to some great restaurants down-town.
  • Lovely parks in the area for chilled strolling and relaxing


  • Choo choo hotel is quirky and the main reception area and breakfast/bar area is lovely
  • We stayed in building 3 which looks awful from the outside [concrete eastern-bloc look to it] it’s pretty basic inside
  • We would suggest staying in one of the train carriage rooms, they look really good but were not available for us [we asked because we were so disappointed with the look of building 3]
  • Chattanooga itself is pretty disappointing apart from lookout mountain
  • We’d recommend St Johns restaurant for a fine dining meal – we booked on-line before we travelled


  • Loews hotel is a top-class hotel.  Fantastic breakfast [a little expensive but prob worth it]

Car hire was another huge success. Very straightforward at both airports. Excellent quality sat-nav.

If any of your customers are looking to do the blues trail – we’d be happy to pass on our views about the various museums and other blues venues we visited.

Thanks again

Andy and Cathy Wiseman
