Needed to find a tour company in the area - chose this one because it was #1 on tripadvisor.
Totally agree with the reviews. Rich and Jane are both great and treat you like family members. We went on 3 tours. One was an evening cruise on a yacht in Knoxville, another a day trip to Cades Cove and finally a trip to Dandridge. All were fantastic. We received a quick camera talk on the Dandridge trip which was very informative and you didn't have to know anything about photography to benefit from it.
We hope to visit the area again and will definately be going on another tour with them.

Rich Iceland came to our resort to talk about his tours. We went on four, and they
were all good!
Our last evening we went to see America's Hit Parade at the Grand Majestic theater.
I would not have found that show on my own. It was a very nice show, and then they
took us to dnner! And all as reasonable price. Rich and Jane's tours are a good value.

We decided to use Photo Fast Tours during our July vacation because of their #1 ranking on Tripadvisor and were so glad we did! We visited Cade's Cove on Tuesday, July 17th and Dandridge/ Douglas Dam/ Bush Baked Beans on Thursday, July 19th, both were great! The free photo lessons were an added bonus and our tour guides (and owners) Rich and Jane were the best. We look forward to booking with Photo Fast Tours on our next visit to Gatlinburg.

My husband and I have been visiting the Smokeys for the past 14 years, along the way we met up with Rich and Jane Iceland. Thier tours are magnificent from learning photography to great sightseeing, wonderful restaurants and amazing shows!!! They make sure everyone has a good time. We now go to the Smokeys often but always make sure we take a trip or two or three... with Rich and Jane, they absolutely make the trip!

We recently spent our second week in Gatlinburg, TN, with illusions that we had already seen most of the sights on our first visit and would have few new things that interested us on our second visit. We were prepared to just relax and enjoy the ambiance and a casual show or two and perhaps travel on to Nashville for a day or two. On Monday we were introduced to Rich and Jane Iceland, proprietors of Photo Fast tours, and their free photography class and local tour. Rich's very reasonable weekly tour schedule included gourmet dinners and the top shows in the local and nearby areas. Their tourmobiles and river cruise were an air conditioned and comfortable platform for their tours and running commentary of little known local and regional lore. We were encouraged to try them and were were delighted enough with the result to book all of their tours for the week. It turned our weeks vacation into a pleasant running social event with what quickly became good friends.

Rich and Jane go out of their way to accommodate and please their customers with guarantees of satisfaction and extra effort. We recommend that anyone visiting the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge vacation venues consider meeting up with Rich and Jane and take advantage of their unique Photo Fast capabilities and hospitality. We are very satisfied customers.
