There’s something almost magical about the Smoky Mountains rising majestically above towns in East Tennessee. They can make you feel safe when looking out your window, as they appear to stand guard over the land you love, or they can make you feel exhilarated when you climb to the very top and survey the same land that was once an unexplored frontier. The stories that are told about these natural landmarks can be titillating, frightening, or simply sad, as so much life has been lived in their shadows for centuries. Stories about history, heritage, and life living in this rugged yet beautiful area of the Great Smoky Mountains.
When it’s time for a more in-depth exploration of the tranquil wildness, Tennessee Mountain Tours is the company that can help you experience their grandeur up close and personal. Offering guided walking tours and narrated bus tours through the Great Smoky Mountains, their guides are knowledgeable, personable, and know how to tell a good story, allowing their guests to have the adventure of a lifetime. You could go see the sites on your own, fighting traffic and unfamiliar roads. You might find some of the more popular areas and get to see them.

They are stories that have been passed down from father to son and mother to daughter over the generations. They are sometimes personal stories told about life growing up in the mountains of East Tennessee. The art of storytelling has almost died out thanks to TV, internet and mass media, but in the Smoky Mountains we keep the tradition alive with some of the best story tellers in the country.
