Thanks to a groupon we enjoyed the up close and personal with the llama herd - otherwise it could have been a pretty expensive meet and greet. The road in is something of trial for smaller lower cars - breeze for trucks though.The hikes....or walks in the woods are pricey enough for a family of four to feel the need for a little more.... without the groupon the pen experience would have been $60
Overall a really good experience hanging out in the llama pen listening to Steve's string of anecdotes for an hour. The event probably needs a little more structure - such as grooming and feeding. One of the visitors had heard about the llama cravings for graham crackers and that brought the time to a fitting end.

The Groupon clearly states you should bring graham crackers if you would like to feed the llamas. I have found that some people don't groom llamas very well and makes the llamas upset so we don't groom them any longer. We do want to keep the llamas happy and wanting to visit with our guest in a friendly way. They are animals and have minds of their owns and personalities like Jelly the alpaca that just won't let you pet him (he likes to run away)

Loved our llamas - Leonardo and Oscar. A bit stubborn, but friendly and so adorable.

My husband and I were a party of two (besides the llamas and guide). The guide/owner is nice enough but talks a nonstop monologue about his life which detracted focus from the llamas, the reason you're paying $80 per person. In that setting, a more conversational approach would be preferable, and more education/information about llamas would have been welcome.

We surprised our daughter, who's obsessed with llamas! We arrived a little earlier and was greeted by 3 very friendly dogs (that was my son's entertainment), Steve fed the llamas right away and we got to see how they behave and spit at each other. Soon after we entered the fenced area and pet them while steve talked about his llamas and some llama facts. The llamas did not spit at us, they were very friendly. It was a fun experience for the kids!

We walked the llamas earlier this week and had such a great time! Some in our group of 8 were not too keen on the idea, but ended up truly enjoying the experience. Steve, our guide, was very knowledgeable of the llamas and alpacas, as well as the area. We had a picture perfect day and enjoyed the hike. The llamas and alpacas are truly head turners - as many of the other people on the trails were intrigued and asked questions. Steve was always happy to answer them. All of the animals were calm and gentle and they love to eat! The waterfall was a nice surprise!

If you want to do something memorable away from all the tourist traps and see a little of the smokies with a friendly llama then this is for you. The 1.5 hour trek with a herd of llamas was a great approx. 2 mile hike suitable for almost anyone except kids under 5 and the people who couldn't walk up a few flights of stairs. Its a leisurely trek filled with inspirational stories from the owner and markers filled with inspiring quotes. If you are interested in hearing stories about leaving corporate work for something non-traditional and if you'd like to hear about Seal Team 6 and Chuck Norris you'll especially want to make sure to ask the owner about them. If you want to see a llama spit bring graham crackers. That's the only time we saw it happen when they were angry about not getting one otherwise they are the super-friendly. They liked to eat just about anything green along the trail so if you'd like to let your llama stop for a snack get near the back of the line so you can let them stop more often then walk fast to get caught up. One of the most memorable things we've even done on vacation. Make sure to make a video, this will be a trip you'll want to share and post.

We did the 1 hour tour and my daughters loved it! It’s a fairly easy hike, but some of the other family’s in our group struggled with the first hill. Once you get to the top of the first hill it’s an easy hike/walk through the woods. The owner/guide tells lots of stories as you go and is very friendly. When you first get there, there may not be anyone to greet you, that’s because the owner is out on another tour/hike and will be back soon, so don’t panic. It was a fun, easy, quick excursion that the kids will love!

It was definitely a wonderful experience. The llamas are so cute and they walk right along with you. The guide was wonderful and told us some interesting stories. We did the normal trekk and I just wish there would have been more of some views and trails rather than just walking through the woods.

The Padgett Mill hike is on the property and is a walk through the woods and if you come in the winter and spring before the leaves appear you do get to see the mountains around us. The description on the website does describe the hike as a walk through the woods.

We stayed in Pigeon Forge for a family vacation and were disappointed by all the overpriced, cheesy attractions and restaurants. So this attraction was something we were looking forward to. It was SO MUCH FUN! We had a teenager, a pre-teen and a toddler in tow and all 3 did the hike, no problem and had so much fun with their Llamas. The owner had some inspiring stories to tell along the hike, and the property was beautiful. We will definitely be back for a more challenging hike!

On our last full day in Gatlinburg, my boyfriend and I were looking for something fun to do and impulse-booked this experience, so we kinda had no idea what we were walking in to, or that it would be the most interesting thing we did this week.
An hour and a half later, we were pulling up the gravel path, greeted by the dogs Briggs and Zoey (Briggs has a big mouth but he's a total softie) and the owner Steve.
We were first introduced to the llamas, of which every single one had a name and backstory, and then allowed to pick which llama we would like to take with us. We were the only two there that day so it was a nice private experience.
There was very little silence, Steve loves to tell stories and we had some fun conversations on the hike, which is probably why the time flew so quickly.
It was a bit short and we got done earlier than expected, I would definitely do the 2hr hike next time. The llamas were VERY well behaved and sweet.
I see other reviews mentioning crackers and i wish I knew to bring them, that would have been great.
All in all, this place is definitely quirky and you need to be able to roll with that. Those looking for a more rigid cookie cutter experience may be a little put-off, but if you keep an open mind you'll be better off for it.
I would definitely go again next time I'm in town.

Two sisters, one who brought their spouse, four adult children, and a family friend all enjoyed this experience. The llamas were gentle and friendly, Cassidy, our guide, was warm and patient as well as informative. I recommend this to anyone who wishes to go off tge beaten path and try something new.
