Our tour guide Jake was awesome! Extremely experienced, having hiked in various internal countries and locations within the US. He shared interesting nuggets of information as we hiked along the trail. We didn't know what to expect, given my husband and I aren't experienced hikers. Jake made sure the pace wasn't too hectic and he even took care of my big toe when I started to develop a blister half way thru the guided hike. We hiked to a breath taking vista and ate a relaxing lunch. I highly recommend this tour company and most definitely Jake as your guide! When we return will look to reconnect with Jake and do even more hiking.

We had the best time with Jake on the "Classic" tour. He is very knowledgeable about the area in all aspects, especially the history. The tour is a wonderful introduction to the Smokies, you get a good idea of what's on offer, beautiful vistas and an idea of what else you want to do while you're here. You may even want to do some more touring with Jake!

Our guide (Jake) has hiked and guided the US, Europe and various other countries; he is very knowledgeable about the Smokey Mountain National Park, and asked us what our interests where, so he could plan the tour.
I highly recommend this tour operator, this tour, and Jake.

Our Classic Mountain Tour with Jacob was awesome. Jake really took the time with my family and my 84 year old grandmother to make sure we had a good time and got the full history of the mountains and the city of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
