The Elvis Travel Service, part of Strictly Elvis UK, is delighted to announce details of the tours that we will be operating for fellow Elvis fans over the 40th Anniversary in August
We have set up three superb, top notch, itineraries for you to choose from – the first is our ‘Loving You’ tour – the ever-popular Tupelo and Memphis Holiday – with two nights in Tupelo
followed by a full week in Memphis – perhaps the two places that Elvis loved the most and which had the greatest significance for him and his fans. Our knowledge of these cities, our contacts and
vast experience of bringing fans here (every year since 1972!) has made us the experts and the only people to travel with if you want the full ‘Elvis Experience’.
Our second option, ‘Paradise, Hawaiian Style’ combines Tupelo and Memphis with Hawaii and San Francisco. With a full 7 night stay in Hawaii you’ll be able to see why Elvis loved to vacation and make
movies here. He adored the place…and you will too. Our original intention was to split the stay between the islands of Oahu and Kauai and to stay at the legendary Coco Palms Hotel, much featured in
Blue Hawaii. Unfortunately, as we print these details, the developers still haven’t started the rebuilding of the property after the devastation reeked by Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Instead we will
offer a Day Trip to Kauai as an optional tour and, if the hotel is open in time (still planned for Spring/Summer 2017) then we will offer this also as a 2-day excursion enabling you to overnight
there. We return from Hawaii via the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Thirdly we have a brand new ‘Follow That Dream’ extension which, after the Tupelo and Memphis holiday, will fly you to Crystal River in Florida where Elvis shot that movie. There are lots of location
sites to see and to relive this amusing film. The ‘bonus’ is the fabulous region of Florida where it took place – on the Gulf coast just an hour north of Tampa and with crystal clear (hence its name)
rivers and springs, lots of sunshine and simply loads to see and do….or not, if you just want to laze by a pool. Onward then to the grandest of all seaside resorts – glamorous Miami Beach where the
final few days of the holiday is spent in the ultra-luxurious Fontainebleau Hotel – where Elvis performed on the Frank Sinatra Show.
