Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"Georgia and Alabama are the perfect destinations for history students studying Civil Rights in the US. Alabama is famous for its role in the struggle for equality. It’s here that Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., preached, marched and changed history. Sample some home-cooked Southern-style meals with fried chicken, collard greens and of course fresh seafood as the main Alabama favourites.  Georgia offers a rich heritage in history and music as well as adventure and cultural attractions. Before your visit ends don’t forget to visit Coca Cola World in Atlanta, which attracts millions of visitors each year."
