Let us take you on a relaxing, panoramic tour in the Great Smoky Mountains through Wears Valley, along Little River Road and up the Foothills Parkway. You’ll depart from our convenient Pigeon Forge, TN location. This comfortable, relaxing tour winds along paved roads with stunning views and offers a stress-free, mild outing.
The tour begins when your Certified Interpretive Guide heads towards Wears Valley, an idyllic community of quaint farms, historic sites and scenic views. Learn about the area’s rich history and how the Great Smoky Mountains got their name.
Upon entering Smoky Mountains National Park, you’ll follow the curves of the Little River Gorge Road in an enclosed, heated Pink® Jeep® making stops on the way. It’s one of the most scenic drives in eastern Tennessee. Your guide will interpret the flora, fauna and diverse ecosystems of “America’s most visited national park.”
Breathe in the fresh air and marvel at stunning views while traveling along the newly opened section of the Foothills Parkway. Overlook stops offer awe-inspiring panoramas for spectacular photos of the mountains often blanketed in the smoke-like mist, for which they are famous.
The parkway provides the best views of the highest peaks in the eastern United States. Touted as “one of the prettiest drives in America,” your guide will share how the rugged terrain and other fascinating factors caused this masterpiece to take decades to complete.
Your return to Pigeon Forge features more stories of the Smokies and area attractions, and a peek into the history of Pink Jeep Tours, in business since 1960.

Reservations were easy to schedule. We were given great detailed instructions on what to expect including bringing a blanket, as it was on the colder side. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helped us get great photos along the way.
Tour was great. There was a horn honker behind us however there were cars ahead of us and our guide was following them at an appropriately safe distance. Probably honking with impatience at having to drive 35 in a 45 mph speed zone. Our guide loves the area and I believe she enjoyed the tour as much as we did.
It was amazing. The sights we seen were very beautiful! We had a great time.
The tour was great!! Our guide was very entertaining as she shared facts and history with us. Very enjoyable!
