Mike and Jen were our hosts and they were fantastic! They were truly passionate about the history and culture behind moonshine and whiskey of Tennessee. They 100% made sure we all had the best time. They know that not all are drinkers and coached those who are not how to still get the most out of this experience.

Pepper at Doc Collier was a great host to our group! He was fun, answered questions, and made sure we all had a great time. Our tour in the back was informative and interesting as well. We also got to try an item that wasn't being sold yet. You also get merch and moonshine for a discounted price for being on this tour. Truly a unique experience.

Sugarlands was a really fun experience, also! A little bit more mainstream than Doc Collier but still a great time. Autumn was our host at Sugarlands and she was a great time! Funny and wanted us to have a good time. Sugarlands rotates their tasting flavors every day. We also got a free drink at their bar in the back and were able to get discounted drinks afterwards as well. Conni was our guide in the back and was very informative about the process as well! We were also privileged to meet some of the cast of the show "Moonshiners." Mike was so thoughtful and wanted to "hold us off" during our tour so we could meet them.

Overall, a very fun experience. Mike & Jen genuinely try to make sure we all have the best experience. You won't be disappointed!

This tour was so much fun! I highly recommend it for people who are new to moonshine and wanting to learn a little bit more about it and get to sample a bunch of different flavors! Our guide, Jenn, was knowledgeable and fun to learn from! She came prepared with a wagon to carry any purchases we made and water for us!

This tour beats a normal tasting as we got to try so many different flavors and got front of the line treatment at all the places when lines were out the door. Plus, we got extra discounts on top of existing deals on purchases for being a part of the tour.

We had 3 other couples on the tour that we met that night and it was a good way to meet other people! We all had so much fun! I definitely recommend this tour and would book again if we go back!

This is an amazing tour with amazing hosts. My boyfriend and I have done it twice now and we will certainly be going for a 3rd time. Expect to walk a bit and expect to drink...a lot. The amount of things you get to sample is astonishing for less than $50. Tipping is not expected but I always give $5 to each person serving the group as they do an excellent job. Please go on this tour, Mike and Jen are excellent hosts and you will definitely enjoy yourself!

Mike and Jenn were amazing tour guides and the entire day was wonderful! They were so considerate of the rainy day, contacted us in the morning to give us a heads up, as well as informed us of their safe and clean precautions for the walking tour. The two stops provided us with a hilarious afternoon and we learned a lot! It was a great birthday gift for my partner and the amount of moonshine we drank seemed endless! We made great friends with the couples on the tour and each stop had ample time to purchase moonshine and connect! Even the servers at the Distilleries had us laughing till our sides hurt and drinking tons. If you are looking for a fun and personal tour, this is it!

Jenn did a great job explaining things and keeping the tour organized and friendly. The moonshine and company were tremendous and I heartily recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know a little about moonshine, and the area in which it came from. I definitely would do again!

Mike and Jen were our guides and they made this experience fantastic! They shared the history and culture behind moonshine and whiskey of Tennessee. They made sure everyone had a great time. Shawn at Doc Collier was a great host to our group! He was fun, answered questions, and made sure we all had a great time. Our tour in the back was informative and interesting as well. You also get merch and moonshine at both places for a discounted price for being on this tour. Truly a unique experience. Tokin was our host at Sugarlands and he was awesome! Conni was our guide in the back and was very informative about the process as well! Overall, a very enjoyable experience. Mike & Jen genuinely try to make sure everyone has the best experience. You won't be disappointed! Will do it again!

Justin was awesome! He was great to chat with and kept our bachelorette party entertained throughout the tasting. Trip and Ozzie were super helpful checking us out - we bought 10 jars and they were nice enough to split the costs between 5 of us. The outside bar area was super nice and is a great place to chill. Can’t wait to get back to TN!

My husband and I went on the Wine and Shine Walking Tour. This was our second, and definitely not last, tour with Smoky Tours. We had a really good time. Michael was our guide and was fun and informative. We learned some things about moonshine and history that we didn't know. On the tour we got the VIP treatment at all of our stops and extra discounts for being on the tour. Even if you have already been to the distilleries and winery that they stop at, it's worth making the trip with Smoky tours.

We went there to buy some shine for our husbands. They have a wide selection of flavors. Some I would never think of like maple bacon or banana pudding. They have a tasting area where you pay $5.00 and taste 10 different kinds. They have apparel and are reasonably priced. Every third jar is half price. Fun experience.
