This is a very cool excursion. Our tour guide and driver was Kim and she was awesome. She was very nice and knowledgeable about the area we toured. The views are amazing. We only had 4 people in our Jeep so that made it very comfortable. I did a pink Jeep your in Las Vegas many years ago and it was also great. The price we paid was around $60.00 per person and our tour was 2.5 hours long. It’s a Jeep thing.

Had an amazing time visiting the newly completed Foothills Parkway. Our tour guide Pam was entertaining, knowledgeable and added to our overall excitement visiting the Smokies. The 3hr tour included a few interesting stops, a General store (souvenirs/bathroom break) and multiple opportunities to take in the incredible nature. Finally, the tour finished with an exciting trip through a jeep sized obstacle course! Highly recommend taking this tour, make sure to ask for Pam!

"Fun Tour and Lots of Laughs"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our tour to Roaring Fork. The off road experience afterwards was a real blast. I would have done it over and over. Straight up and down climbing and lots of bumps, screaming and laughing. Our lady guide was the greatest!! Shes a fabulous driver, very knowledgeable and she made the tour so much fun. The only suggestion I have is to turn the seats around back to back so its easier to see everything and to take pictures. Its hard to keep trying to turn around and look out.
