Best tour in Tennessee Mountains hands down! - Favorite part was our knowledgeable guide Matt! We learned so much! Lunch was local and amazing. We had so much fun we booked the Cades Cove tour for the next day! We even got lucky and saw a bear. The mountain views were phenomenal and we learned so much!

Our guide Matt is from... - Our guide Matt is from the area and gave a lot of history along the tour. We stopped for breakfast early in the tour and it was good. There were clouds so when we got to the top of the mountains we were not able to see the mountain range. We enjoy hearing the history of the area in which we travel and we were not disappointed as Matt is very knowledgeable of the area.

A little disappointing, but informative - I was hopoing for more tour but we ended up spending over an hour at the restaurant. We went up the mountain a little way to Elvira's for breakfast and back down to the foothills parkway for a little jaunt. Did learn some history and interesting information as the guide was from there and his family was one of the first to be there..

The tour requires more tour guide dialogue throughout the tour. - Our most memorable part of the trip was the breakfast at Elvira’s restaurant. The personnel we’re friendly and accommodating. The tour consisted of driving but it was never explained where we were on our journey. The tour guide stated that he would explain when we stopped but the description was still lacking. Personally, we were disappointed. The tour turned out to be a breakfast with a drive through the woods and a few tidbits of information.

Not happy. - Seeing the mountains. The 3 hour tour was not 3 hours. 1 hour at a restaurant and the drive was part of the 3 hours. It only turned out to be 1 hour. Disappointed.
