This tour includes the breathtaking beauty along the Foothills Parkway. It ends with the thrill of an off-road ride on private land in our iconic, open-air Pink Jeep. You'll depart from our convenient Pigeon Forge, TN, location. Your tour begins when your Certified Interpretive Tour Guide heads toward Wears Valley and Townsend. A stop at Townsend Visitors Center highlights information about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Shop for souvenirs here, too.
Stops at overlooks make this tour a spectacular photo tour. With your guide taking care of every amenity, you can focus completely on the scenery ahead. Foothills Parkway, touted by many as “the prettiest drive in America,” leads to awe-inspiring panoramas. The Smoky Mountains’ highest points will be seen along this route.
Approved by Congress in 1944, the final section of Foothills Parkway was completed in late 2018. Along the way your guide will share how the rugged terrain and other fascinating factors caused this masterpiece to take decades to complete.
With your senses full of the incomparable beauty of the Smokies, a thrill ride still awaits. Not only is your guide an expert storyteller, but also an off-roading professional! Your guide will give you yet another memory to share with a 4x4 thrill ride through private, wooded land that rises above Pigeon Forge.

Enjoyed the ride and our guide Tanner! Great family fun, and our son who’s autistic thoroughly enjoyed the ride and felt comfortable once he met Tanner. The front seat was the best place for him to ride. Thank you for making our first visit to Tennessee above and beyond our expectations!
fun, educational and informative
Very interested and informative. Tour guide Julie was happy, pleasant, caring, just a pleasure to be with, very kind and down to earth.
It was an amazing look at the Smoky Mountains. I can’t wait to do it again
I told her i wanted to see waterfalls and was told foothills was one to see waterfalls .We only saw one and it was far away so pics werent good at all.
They would have liked more off road time
tour guide super friendly personable stories
It was amazing! I love the scenic views. The off road at the end was so much fun. It made me want to do another tour right away just to do the off road.
Enjoyed the road portion, but the off road portion was anti-climactic.
