        My major concern, and the reason I did not give them 5 stars is that when we landed in New Orleans, the transfer service from the airport to the Sheraton New Orleans hotel was not up to the normal Collette standards. It took 90 minutes for us to make what was supposed to be a 30 minute trip. I was very disappointed. With the cost of the tour I would have thought they would supply a more professional transfers service. You could have probably given me a vouchers for a cab service. Would have probably only cost about $30. Poor decision on Collette for keeping a frequent customer happy. I would like to get a response from Collette about this.

        It was a great tour with wonderful sights. The swamp tour was fun, especially when we could hold the small alligator and watch them feed the larger alligators marshmallows on a stick. I liked that we could take the shuttle to the jazz festival on our own schedule from the hotel. If you wanted to spend more or less time at the festival it was very convenient. We spent a lot of time at the festival but others on the tour did not. It worked well for everyone and no one was disappointed or frustrated that they couldn't do what they wanted. The only bad part in New Orleans was the walking tour of the French Quarter. The guide was very unpleasant. She thought she knew everything and argued with my husband over a statue that he had questioned her about. She really didn't know the answer but turned out what she had said was incorrect. She also put down the other lady on the tour for not listening when she didn't understand American History because she was from Australia. The bus tour sounded better and I wish we had taken it. We were given coupons for beignets and a drink at Café du Monde that I thought we were going to use while on the walking tour but it turned out we didn't have time and had to use them another time. The tour was so packed that it was hard to find time. We finally used them at night after the final jazz festival day. We really enjoyed the New Orleans Cooking School and came home with a few great recipes. The stop at the Picadilly Cafeteria in Jackson, MS brought back memories from when I was a kid visiting my grandparents in Florida and we would eat their often. The Guest House at Graceland was a very nice hotel. We could have used another day at Graceland with all the new exhibits. We only had time to do the Mansion but I would have loved to see more. I guess we could have spent more time there but we opted for the optional tour that was also very good. The tour guide at Sun Studios was excellent and he and another guide even performed for us. The dinner at the hotel was OK but really enjoyed the dinner on the optional tour. The stop at the Belle Meade Plantation was very nice and the lunch they prepared for us was excellent. It really made us feel special the way they treated us. Loved the Opryland Hotel. It was beautiful and I was so glad I took a late flight home on the last day so we could spend the day exploring the hotel. I'm not a big fan of country music but enjoyed the RCA Studio B tour where we recorded a CD. We enjoyed the dinner at the Opryland Grill and the musical entertainers and waiters. We had great seats at the Ryman Auditorium for the country classics show but it was disappointing that we never got to see the new Oprlyand Theater that I had asked about before booking the tour and was told we would see it. The tour was jam packed with music and the tour guide suggested locations to hear even more music when we had free time. Our guide enjoyed all types of music and even played "Happy Birthday" on her traveling violin for my husband's birthday on the bus. The coach driver was very nice and competent.

        the music was great, however getting to the venue was complicated by the set up.. there was no area for bus drop off close to the entrance. This wasted significant time to be at the festival.
