Tour With The Experts

Each of our tours are written and designed by an expert local guide. Some tours have you enjoying a nice hike at a pleasurable pace to see, hear, and smell the mountains. Others are a peaceful joy ride on one of our buses while being fully narrated by your guide/driver. All of the tours are amazing and unique. We have worked hard to create tours which are fun, educational, inspirational, informative, and so much more.

Tours For Every Season

October begins the fall tour season followed closely by the winter tours. We will see the end of our summer tours and the start our famous and very popular Trees of Many Colors and Ghost Tour with Haunted House combo. These seasonal offerings showcase the best parts of fall in the Smoky Mountains.

Fall Colors In The Smokies

Our Trees of Many Colors tour will take guests on a 5-hour journey to see areas unknown to most tourists to enjoy the peace and quiet of the wilderness without the crowds. Your guide will talk about the trees, the animals, and life in the Smokies during the harvest season. As summer ends and fall begins life slows down and the residents prepare for the winter ahead.

Not only do you get to hear amazing and entertaining stories you get to see the beauty of the fall color change from some of the best viewing areas in the region.
