"Nice but boring and overpriced"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

We had a couple strikes against us: bad weather with a traffic jam thrown in at the end. Our guide Beth was fantastic but we had a group of 11 split between two jeeps. After we paid for the tickets, we ended up paying $182 more for taxes and gratuity since our group was large. The off roading lasted a total of ten minutes at the most but that was the best part. Otherwise I felt we could have easily done the rest on our own. I would just recommended talking to a park ranger for free and getting some tips for waterfalls and swimming holes. Perhaps our trip was more boring because of the rain but we didn’t get a good value for what we spent.

We took a trip to Bryson and on the way saw numerous awesome views but with my husband driving it was very hard for him to enjoy it. So I saw these pink jeeps and said tours on them. I looked them up and saw they did one to the Newfound Gap. So I booked the tour. Stella was our guide and she was awesome. She was very knowledgeable and her driving skills were great. She took many pics for us and it was a great ride up the mountain. My husband and kids enjoyed the tour very much. We would definitely do it again.

"A great and fun way to see the Great Smoky Mountains"

Decided to see the Great Smoky Mountains by taking a Pink Jeep tour. This is a great way to see the park and its beauty. We did the 3 hour Foothills tour. Kaley was our guide and made sure we were comfortable and safe. You can do 2, 3 and 4 hour tours of different aspects of the park. We got out for a bathroom break on our journey. We saw beautful waterfalls, stream and mountains. Kaley new her park well and was very friendly. I didnt care for the 4 wheeling experience but some would find it thrilling at the end of there journey{ you can opt out of this} Our tour was in the $60 dollar range but was a good experience when you dont know the history of the area or where to go. Would recommend to others visiting the area.

I’ve been on Jeep tours in Sedona and the Grand Tetons, ( which were all off road) so was very excited about seeing the Smokey mountains on this trip from a Jeep. Our guide was friendly and made us all feel welcome. However, it soon became apparent that in the Smokey mountains, jeeps and other tours must remain on the road, that is a two lane parkway. I understand the reason behind this decision, ( to keep the ecosystem from being harmed) but I want the reader to know, that there is No Off-road exploration of the mountain. And there is very little to see from the road. NICE RIDE BUT NOT WHAT WE HOPED FOR,! The last ten minutes, the guide takes you off the road to a pink Jeep man-made trail. No sights just bumps and hills.
