Travelling on Route 66

We love to hear when our clients have holidays of a lifetime and for our friends Sheryl and Gary their trip around the United States of America was just the case.

Their tour frequented key areas in the USA through Route 66 including Chicago, St. Louis – Missouri, Frankfort – Kentucky, Louisville – Kentucky, Nashville – Tennessee, Memphis – Tennessee, Near Jackson, Natchez – Mississippi, Baton Rouge – Louisiana, New Orleans – Louisiana and Los Angeles – California.

“Our Insight tour, Rhythms and Flavours of America from Chicago to New Orleans was steeped in history, music and food, exposing us to different flavours in different states.

Starting out in Chicago was the start of Route 66. We were tempted with Fannie May chocolates; you haven’t tasted chocolates until you have tried these.

We boarded the Untouchables Tour… History of the Chicago Gangsters, this was a fantastic tour both educational and lots of fun. The bus driver and tour guide were good actors as well as comedians, which made for a very interesting tour. This is a must see tour for clients of all ages visiting Chicago.

When we arrived at St. Louis  – Missouri the St Louis Gateway Arch took our breath away. There was such a fantastic view from the top of the arch out over the Mississippi. We also visited the Old Courthouse now a historical museum and the first Catholic Basilica in St Louis.

In Frankfort Kentucky we visited the Buffalo Trace Distillery, the oldest distillery in the USA. Gary enjoyed the bourbon; it’s a must for all bourbon lovers!

Louisville Kentucky was a quick stop to Churchill Downs home of the Kentucky Derby.

Walking in downtown Nashville, Tennessee the clubs are playing live music 24/7. People over flowing out onto the streets and the alcohol flowing freely all day. It was high school graduation day the day we were in Nashville, which made for extra noise of young kids yelling and celebrating as well as alcohol consumption.

That night we went to the live radio broadcast of the Grand Ole Oprey. Oh WOW! It was absolutely fantastic. We were lucky enough to be in the audience for this live broadcast. This radio show has been going in America for over 70 years.

Visiting Studio B history of music the 50’s onwards was life changing. I stood where Elvis stood making his first recording for this studio.

The hotel that we stayed in Nashville was amazing, Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Centre.  There were four accommodation wings to the complex, all connected.  We stayed in the Garden Conservatory wing. Restaurants, bars, coffees shops and retail shops were all found within the centre.

Check in with us next fortnight to hear more from this amazing experience.

"Josh is awesome he has organised our family cruise of 8 for next year so quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend him to book all your travel needs and wouldn't go to anyone else. Keep up the amazing work Josh."

Debbie Demooy - VIC

"We have been using Josh for our travel needs since May and totally recommend him to all our family and friends - and he has always come in cheaper than other agents - so next time you are looking at booking a flight or a holiday give Josh a call! Karen Suckling - thank you for your very kind and heartfelt words. It's very much appreciated and this is why I do what I do! It's not always about money - it's about something way more important!" x

Karen Suckling - VIC

"Thanks Josh for pulling together my much anticipated trip. Your patience, your customer service, your sense of humour and your help with the trip app was much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending your amazing knowledge and talent"

Jody McDonald - VIC

"Thank you Josh for seeing us at such short notice. It feels a bit surreal that our travel plans are not just a dream but we are actually on our way to the USA. Your passion and commitment to your clients is evident from our meeting, having spent four hours chatting to us is far more than what the local travel agent would spend!"

Jessica & Jason Galea - VIC

"I have never known in 30 years of dealing with corporate travel the level of expertise and enthusiasm I have with Josh Zuker over just three months. Thank you for such as personalised and totally professional service — you are truly a one-off."

John & Kate Gledhill - VIC

"All I can say is WOW!!! Josh just organised my 40th birthday holiday and I am totally taken back by how fantastic Josh Zuker Travel is. Josh is the BEST of the BEST. Thank goodness I found him but reflecting back on my many holidays that I booked myself in past years, what on earth was I thinking? Having Josh saves you an immense amount of time, money and sanity! He makes everything so easy. Ridiculously efficient, hard working, outstanding customer service and so patient! What is not to love? 5 stars all the way!!!"

Danni McGaughey - VIC

"The minute Josh walked in he made myself and my husband so comfortable. No pushing. Just great ideas. His experience and expertise in this field is just mind blowing. Since meeting Josh we are now onto our third holiday, all I do is call him to tell him what we want and within a day it's done. He is not only a travel agent but he has become a friend he just knows your needs and I couldn't think of anyone else that I would rather to business with."

Faye Hollow - VIC

"After a disastrous encounter with a major travel agency, I decided to book my own holiday to Italy, Portugal and the UK. Spent many hours researching flights, hotels etc. and not really getting anywhere fast. Then Josh Zuker Travel popped up on my radar with rave reviews so I thought why not, let’s give another travel agency a go. Best decision ever. Josh secured amazing prices, more direct flights and his service was exceptional. I just love planning a major holiday and working with Josh made it even more enjoyable. All I have to do is count down the days and enjoy learning Italian. Thanks Josh."

Sue Mason - SYD

"Thanks Josh for your patience and knowledge to help us create the perfect Thailand escape. We stayed at 2 Resorts in Phuket and both locations were spot on. We couldn't have been happier. We also spent 4 nights in Bangkok and loved our location here as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your business to friends or family. Thanks so much!"

Belinda Simmons - VIC

"As many of my friends know, I love a good travel deal and spend hours trawling the internet trying to find the best price on accommodation and airfares. Well, now I have those precious hours back as Josh has found me comparable, if not better prices on every occasion. Add to that the "after hours" help I received the other night after having to postpone our Hawaii holiday at the last minute. I sent Josh a message at some ungodly hour and he was more than happy to call me and talk through my options to avoid any late change fees. And even then he was able to find accom that was "sold out" online. Seriously don't bother with your trivago, Expedias etc. Just call Josh Zuker."

Alicia Mansfield - VIC

"We have just returned from our second holiday booked through Josh Zuker Travel. Thank you so much for everything we all had an amazing time and we will be in contact again to start organising our next holiday for 2017. We all highly recommend Josh to book all your travel needs and wouldn't go through any one else. Keep up the awesome work and we will be in contact with you soon"
