Dustin was a great tour guide, and...
, juin 2018
Dustin was a great tour guide, and brought Pam along for the ride, who we had toured with the day before to Cade's Cove. We were with another couple our friends, and once again were the only tourists on the van. It was a great day - not rushed seeing and learning about the town of Gatlinburg stopping for great sights, shopping and lunch and seeing the amazingly beautiful Smokies. Learning about the mountains, the establishment of the national park and the people of the area was a wonderful way to spend the day. A must!
The driver was 15-minutes late. He said he had been waiting in line for gas.
Our first stop was for lunch around 10:45 AM at a restaurant out on some highway. It had only been a couple of hours since my husband and I had finished breakfast so he and I sat on the porch waiting another 45-minutes or so to take the tour.
From the restaurant we were taken to a coffee shop. This took another half-hour for everyone to get off, order a drink, and then return to the van.
Then we left for a tour of an old train depot that wasnt even open on that day so we were only allowed to walk around the grounds and look at what was outside.
Then we went to an old part of town to a shopping area and wasted a lot more time. When we finally got on the tour it consisted of him pointing sites out and telling us a little about them and then informing us it would be worth coming back to visit if we had a vehicle And, most of the time in the van was spent listening to his stories about growing up in those parts. He was a very nice man, but I was interested in learning about the area and seeing sites I might ordinarily miss on my own but that did not happen.
This was the worse tour I had ever been on and it cost 100 for each of the two of us. We both felt like we were taken advantage of.
We really enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the history of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. He was a local resident, a 7th generation member of his family from the area, and was able to pass on so much information. We saw a mama bear and her two cubs in the woods, in addition waterfalls, streams and beautiful scenery. We shopped at several local businesses, including a pottery store where we sat and watched an employee spinning vases. It was mesmerizing to watch, we could have sat there for hours. The tour was a lot of fun. We learned a lot and we would highly recommend it.
Everything began as it should we arrived at the visitor center early and so did Dustin the tour guide, after all the other guest arrived we started on our trip. We then started our tour through the Smokies and just before the first stop we noticed high wind and limbs falling into road, we stopped at first stop and was enjoying the beautiful scenery of mountain stream and lush vegetation. About two miles after the first stop we saw a park ranger with help pulling a small tree from road we then proceeded on our way and then saw a much larger tree in road, in just a few minutes the same ranger came up behind us and told us we had to get out of the park pronto. Dustin then had to back the bus at least a mile to find room to turn around. All roads into the smokies were closed and Dustin had to come up with plan
B. He backtracked and did the latter part of the plan and then showed us Buffalo, art district etc., being a local he knew every pig path in the area so we had a marvelous trip, I know the original trip would have been great but we had an adventure not a tour. You will be in the most capable of hands with Dustin and he is a great communicator. Best tour I have ever been on and if not in capable hands would have been a disaster.
Good Tour! Destin was our driver and tour guide. He does a good job and he picked a local restaurant we could eat at that had excellent food for lunch! I would recommend this tour for anyone wanted to know the history of the Smoky Mountains.
Mom and I had a nice time seeing great sights on this all day tour. We were the first trip of the season and just missed the budding leaves by days. Dustin did a really nice job. It was cool to know he was seventh generation Gatlinburg original. We enjoyed being part of a super small group and had the ability to stop for lunch on a more personalized choice instead of the buffet lunch that would have happened if the bus was full. Dustin let us stop at Elvira's and we loved the food.
