The Bluegrass Wonders Tour has it all

Elvis Presley's Graceland as part of the Reuthers Bluegrass Wonders Tour

“Put on my blue suede shoes and I boarded the plane. Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues in the middle of the pouring rain.”

What Marc Cohn, the American singer from Cleveland aptly describes in his song “Walking in Memphis”, is the feeling that you will experience as a participant in the Reuthers Bluegrass Wonders Tour. Whether you take the trip, which starts in Atlanta and leads to Memphis on a Harley-Davidson or on the bus or you would rather participate in the Photo Tour is entirely up to you. However, all participants have one thing in common: They have felt the blues and followed Elvis Presley’s footsteps through Graceland. Or – to speak in Marc Cohn’s words:

“Saw the ghost of Elvis on Union Avenue. Followed him up to the gates of Graceland. Then I watched him walk right through.”

Graceland was from 1957 until his death in 1977 the residence of “The King of Rock’n’Roll” in Memphis, Tennessee. Since his widow Priscilla Presley opened a portion of the estate for fans and tourists in 1982, a visit to Graceland in not to be missed on every Southern Tour.
