Creating Memories Worth Repeating®
This tour includes the breathtaking beauty along the Foothills Parkway. It ends with the thrill of an off-road ride on private land in a custom and iconic Pink® Jeep®. You'll depart out of our convenient Pigeon Forge, TN, location. Your tour begins when your Certified Interpretive (CIG) Tour Guide heads toward Wears Valley and Townsend. A stop at Townsend Visitors Center brings a bit of information about 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 is touted by many as “the prettiest drive in America,” the parkway 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 tell of 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

Ronnie was excellent. Knowledgeable, safe, conversational, and engaged with kids. Super trip.
Great knowledge of the area
The tour was wonderful. Beth was excellent and knowledgeable. She was a great tour guide
We would have liked more time driving in the mountains, and less time at the shopping stops. The off road course was exciting, even longer off road would have been better!
Keeley was a great guide and the tour was fun and informative.
Lots of fun and great way to see the Smokey Mountains.Highly recommend this tour
My boyfriend and I loved having Ronnie as our tour guide! He was funny, shared history of the area, and was a fantastic photographer! The views were absolutely incredible and the sun out with the wind in our faces, made for an experience I will not ever forget! Definitely a must-do activity while here in the Smoky Mountains !
Got to see a lot of the Great Smoky Mountains that I probably would not have gotten to see otherwise. It was fun riding the jeep. Our guide Keeley was fun, knowledgeable and a safe driver. She made sure everyone was comfortable and answered questions. Would recommend her to anyone seeking this adventure.
