Join the husband and wife team of the #1 ranked Airbnb experience in the Smokies. You will quickly find out why their tours sell out constantly. People come from miles around to see the "Awe of the Smokies". Come explore them with Mike and Jenn! Mike and Jenn take these local Experiences to a whole new informative and fun level! Our tour starts out in the heart of Gatlinburg where we will board a private coach or van (depending on number of people). Our tour will wind thru Smoky Mountain National Park and over the brand new portion of the Foothills parkway. Relax and take in the stories of the area from your local guide as you view the beautiful Smoky Mountains. There will be about 5 different stops for photo opportunities including beautiful streams and waterfalls that will provide some of the most amazing photos. Your trip also includes a professional grade photo of your group at each of the locations we stop at. At the stops I will share some very short history of the area and also share about Appalachian life. Let us take you on a couple of short, EASY walks that will bring you to the most amazing photo and viewing spots around. If you are also planning on doing our "Moonshine Walking Distillery tour" (highest reviewed on Airbnb in Gatlinburg!), our Smokies tour ends right where our evening tour begins. If you are interested in this add on, please let me know.
I have been hosting tours in East Tennessee for several years. I have traveled all over the world and fell in love with East Tennessee 12 years ago and moved here and never looked back. Ever since then I have been showcasing this amazing area to family, friends, and travelers. I have a masters in hospitality and I love to share my experiences, stories, and secret places with new friends. I am a weekly regular in Downtown Knoxville and have formed many unique relationships with the business owners. These establishments have become friends and I can't wait to share their hospitality with you
