Great rail journeys

Has anyone used the UK company "Great Rail Journeys" to do the "Tracks of the Deep South" tour by rail (Tennessee, Mississippi etc)? I am vaguely thinking of booking for next year, but know nothing about this tour, or the firm organizing it. Any assessment by those (Brits , Americans etc) who have been on this widely advertised two-week excursion would be most welcome.

Tyler, Texas

Not much train travel around here. Check with Amtrak for all the routes. There is also a train forum..look for it in the complete list of forums

we did the Las Vegas and Golden West tour with GRJ last year which was amazing .we have never done any tours before so we didnt know what to expect.we are pensioners and worried about every aspect of tour ,but it was very organised and fellow passengers were a very nice mixed bunch from 20ish to 70 ish We are also now looking at Memphis and deep south for Sept. Totaly recomend Great Rail Journey to go with

Many thanks for this information. I am thinking of signing up for the Deep South tour later in the year. We live in Brazil, so would take the tour starting in Atlanta. Have you come across any reports from people who have done this tour? It would be very useful to have their opinions before splashing out the best part of 2500GBP each, plus food.
