I just returned from my trip of the Bluegrass & Blue Ridges. I am in awe of all I experienced. I like guided tours...I realize this isn't for everyone but for me Tauck is the only way to travel in this fashion. I experienced, viewed and learned more than I thought I would. I highly recommend Tauck and this particular trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

I can't pick just one. I was overwhelmed by the beauty and grander of the entire areas we visited.

This tour is for anyone who loves history, horses, music, gracious hotels and beautiful scenery. The poet Christine Lassiter said it best: "I go home to North Carolina, wet with mist of trees breathing life, each mountain singing into the next, green ridges rolling into blue, softer, then softer then silent." Add a fun group - that's Tauck!

Most Memorable Moment:

Most memorable are the Tauck specialties - unique offerings like discussions with a jockey at Churchill Downs and conversations and music with a songwriter/singer in Nashville.

Traveling by motor coach through Kentucky, Tennessee and a corner of North Carolina excited my imagination about race horses, Shakers, composers, musicians, builders and all those pioneers who passed through Cumberland Gap and helped develop and tame our country. This trip was a history lesson learned at the source.

Most Memorable Moment:

Listening to Phil Jamison talk about southern Appalachian dance music and play its tunes on his fiddle was a priceless moment at the Folklife Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Ashville, North Carolina.

This was an excellent tour.Very ambitious - but very interesting and informative. We stayed an extra day in Nashville which allowed us to visit the Johnny Cash Museum. You may want to include this in future tours. Overall we would highly recommend this tour.

Most Memorable Moment:

The evening at the Grand Ole Opry was the highlight of the tour.

We were fascinated with the lovely countryside of Kentucky and the many horse rearing farms. We enjoyed the Blue Grass music, the Grand Ole Opry and the beautiful Biltmore Estate. The Smoky Mountains really are smoky and I've never seen so many trees. Having lunch on a Cherokee reservation was interesting.

Most Memorable Moment:

Listening to a retired jockey tell us about his career and visiting Churchill Downs.
