    Our guide, Ken, was outstanding. He was so knowledgeable on the area, the trails, animals, and plants. He made everyone feel part of the group and had everyone interacting with each other. He was patient and stopped when we needed to. We loved the views and appreciated the secret spot of his that he shared so we could see some amazing cascades. He interacted with the kids so nicely and was so patient with my son who kept looking for salamanders. Towards the end, he even showed us what woodsmen would use for toothbrushes and had us try them! The stories about Cumberland Jack were great as well. We would definitely recommend doing this guided hike. There was just so much to learn and see and we would’ve missed a lot of it if it weren’t for Ken. Thank you!

    Jenn was fantastic, her knowledge of each of the places we went to was spot on. She was able to provide answers to several of the questions the members of our tour had and gave recommendations to her favorites at each establishment.

    The tour was well worth the cost and the discounts you receive are well worth it.

    We highly recommend booking this tour while your in Gatlinburg.

    Great show, magic was great and his humor made the show even more enjoyable. We would highly recommend catching his show if you have the opportunity. You won’t regret it.

    Dave picked us up right on time. We requested starting early and they accommodated us. Dave was very knowledgeable and gave us a great history of the area. He actually spent 4 hours with us for a 3 hr tour. Comfortable car ride, able to see a lot. Some rain hampered us a bit, but he had ponchos for us. Overall great experience, It was our 1st time to the Smokies and we didn't know where to start so this was a great introduction.

    It was an enjoyable time spent with my family. The app was easy to use and we enjoyed hearing the history behind everything we explored. It was nice to be able to take detours and come back to the tour.

    This was the first time booking through Trip Advisor. Based on the recommendations this was highly recommended! We agree, it was fabulous!

    Rachel was our guide and she was an absolute delight! We could tell that she has found a job she truly enjoys!

    Not only did she teach us so much about the vegetation and other things along the trail, she respected the time we needed to rest and to take it all in. This is a beautiful area and sometimes we just wanted to stop and take a look around and take it all in. There was no rushed feel at all, and we enjoyed every minute of it.

    The reward of seeing the falls was amazing. So peaceful and not as well traveled of a trail as some of the other ones in the area. We only saw maybe 10-15 people in just over 4 hours.

    Glad we got the 8:00AM adventure as it was already starting to get busy in the parking areas. Please bring the recommendations listed on Trip Advisor to be fully prepared and to fully enjoy the adventure! Hiking shoes, hiking poles, water, and snacks were all extremely helpful.

    This was the highlight of our week long trip! Thank you to our guide Rachel once again for helping to make this experience unforgettable!

    While this wasn't scary, it did have a lot of good information about the history of the area. The guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He knew the history and had the answers to everyone's questions. I would recommend going on this if you are into history, and tales of peoples experiences.

    And so did the adults. We took our grandkids down - they rode with us. We loved it and had a great time. I wish it would have lasted longer!

    Ms. Debbie was a wonderful guide and so knowledgeable! She truly loves her job and it comes through in all the things that were pointed out along our hike. The hike is 2 miles up and back, very doable for non-hikers. I highly recommend!

    The content was informative, but there was not cellular service in the park. Therefore, there was no correlation between the audio and our location. We enjoyed listening, however.

    I’m normally not a big review person but this was worth me taking the time to write something. I didn’t want to go off for hrs in the woods not being knowledgeable about the trail. This ended up being one of the best decisions to hire a guide. His knowledge of nature and would stop to teach simple things made it very interesting rather than just following the leader. Didn’t have to stress on where we were going , just enjoy the views. He was fantastic w the 3 , 14 yr olds we had and kept it fun. Not a super hard hike at all. Had time to stop whenever we needed. Not rushed at all. Highly recommend this . Our guide John was over the top fantastic. Forest , hiking and outdoors is his thing. You will not be disappointed. Spend the money and have fun.
