Creating Memories Worth Repeating®
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 (CIG) 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 iconic, open-air 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.

Super. Chunk was the best! Super engaging and helpful.
The tour was great. Josh was informative and friendly. His love and knowledge of the park was awesome and made the tour interesting. The scenery and views can not be topped. We will definitely take another tour with Pink Jeep in the future!
The tour was awesome. The scenery can’t be beat. We saw small waterfalls,creeks, rivers, and amazing views of the mountains and valleys.
Beautiful places we would not have found by ourselves. Got great pictures.
It was the best thing we did the whole time we where down there!!! Amazing!
Pam was the jam! I thought I'd registered for the Roaring Fork tour, but I'd actually booked the Valley and Views tour. Based on our wants, Pam recommended we go forth with the Valley and Views Tour. We were not disappointed!! I still got my waterfall and more!!! She was an amazing guide showing us more of the Smoky Mountains than we knew existed. Don't miss an opportunity to experience this.
