Jane and Rich are a kick. Between doing a tour of the Christmas lights of Gatlingburg and Pigeon Forge to taking a nice ride up into the Smokey National Park to see some of the history and local color of the Smokey Mountains it's well worth to spend the day with them. They know their history, tall tales, funny jokes and generally lots of fun to travel with. They stop for lunch or dinner at a local establishment, make sure everyone is having a good time and can answer most questions about the area and history. Well worth the day or evening.

This was our 4th time to visit this beautiful area and we lucky enough to find Rich on our first
visit. He came to our timeshare and was offering a class on photography with a free tour to
practice what we had learned. The class & tour were awesome and we were hooked. We took
every tour he offered and they were all great. Now when we hit town Photo Fast is our first
stop to sign up for all the tours . Rich & Jane have become wonderful friends who make us
feel like we are members of their family. They go the extra mile to make sure everyone has
a great time. Their knowledge of the area and the history they impart makes each tour unique.
Cades Cove is one of our favorites but each one has its own special flavor so you can't make a
wrong choice.
Enjoy yourselves and tell them Hi from the Texas Twosome.

We lucked out at the last minute and were able to take Rich's class on How to Use Your Smartphone together with his Christmas Light Tour through Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevirville with over 6.5 million lights! Wow! What a night! Dinner was good, dessert was scrumptious and the views were breathtaking. At times we were speechless and he thought we fell asleep! Lol! We were able to see his view of the area through the sights and listening to the history and knowledge he gave us of the area and had a lot of fun doing so. My sons and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. New friendships were made. Happy Holidays to Rich and his wife Jane, our friends from Kentucky and to our friends from Ontario!

My husband and I found out about Photo Fast Tours at our timeshare. We are from South Carolina and always looking for fun things to do. We went on a free tour to see Pigeon Forge, a tour of Dolly's home place, and enjoyed a great meal at Partridge and a Pear Tree. What a great tour and Rich was very informative about Pigeon Forge. We enjoyed the tour very much and decided on a recent dinner cruise on the Tennessee River. A tour of Knoxville was included with the dinner cruise. This tour also included sites of Old Town, Southern Railway and L & N Station, World's Fair Park, and the UT Campus. Not only does Photo Fast Tours offers tours, they also teach you about your cell phone and cameras. We have also made other tours with Photo Fast and all have been excellent. I highly recommend making Photo Fast Tours part of your vacation plans. Jane and Rich will make your vacation most memorable.

We found Photo Fast Tours through our timeshare and signed up for the Christmas lights tour. Then, we signed up for the tour through the arts and crafts communities and the apple orchard. Both of these were so enjoyable that we wished we had time to take all of the tours offered. I got some beautiful pictures both of the lights and the winter scenery. Rich knows lots of interesting information about the area and the people, and the stories he tells makes you feel as though you are more a part of the community rather than just someone passing through on a tour. He and Jane go all out to make sure their customers are safe and that they have a great time! The tours are "user friendly" which means anyone can go on them with ease, and you are never rushed when you get off the bus to take a picture. The restaurants they choose for meals are excellent. We will definitely take another (or several more) of these tours the next time we go to Pigeon Forge.
