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 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.

Chris was fantastic!
very enjoyable with great views of the smokies
Our tour was great. PJ made sure we had time to take photos, adding in some cool family panoramic pictures, but also making sure we learned the history of the area. He connected with our boys and made sure they were enjoying the trip and sites too. Overall it was a fantastic experience!
I really enjoyed the tour. It was very informative and took me to places I have not been in the Smokies.
Loved the tour and the route our guide took us on. She was very informative and gave us information on the area. I loved having someone else in the driver seat. Carla was wonderful. Will ask for her again.
Ahh, it was better than I expected!
Great views of rivers and the Smoky Mountains.
