Very enjoyable trip with a bus full of delightful passengers that made the trip even more enjoyable.Jerry was the best tour guide and Fernando was simply the best and the wittiest humor. It would be best if take tours stopped the tourist at a mall that has all kinds of foods and not just Asian cuisine and some of the Asian tourist would prefer something different too! Bus could use some more leg room too! Besides that i would like to take another trip with Taketours.

I have enjoyed my Tennessee, Smoky Mountains tour from NY/NJ. The tour guide Leo tried hard for everyone on the bus to be glad. The driver was very professional. The bus was not new, but it did the job and was comfortable enough. The hotels that we have stayed in were quite adequate and clean. We have seen a number of interesting attractions on our itinerary.

We took the 4 day trip with our captain "Fernando" and our tour guide "Jerry". It was simply perfect. Jerry is super well planned and Fernando is just the most cheerful person who did not let us feel it was 4 days. Fantastic tour with enough time to rest and enjoy all the attractions. And we had a bus full of the most delightful passengers that were never late. It was a treat. Thank you Jerry and Fernando.

That's a amazing tour with my tour guide Johnny Yang. He is a very considerate guy. He treated all the customers very kindly. Especially the second day of the tour in the Gatlinburg is very hot weather, he still gave us the best service, even though he was sweating. When we watched the Dixie Stampede show, he just had a seat after he guided us to have a correct seat number. I really appreciated his good job. I will also recommend this tour company to my other friends. I hope I can see him in the Canada tour soon.

We had smoky motel room, but our tour guide (Freeman) help us with a much better room. Tour guide and driver were very good. Over all we had a good time. It could be too much walking in the Ruby fall for the elderly.

To all other customer that have reviewed this trip magical i truly agree. As usual , like any other bus tours the time at each attraction is very limited . At the same time i understand we have many attraction to go to in short days. The tour guide organized this trip very nicely. I went with my grandparents , they don't speak English and the tour guide took care of them very well . she made them feel not left out i appreciated it very much. my highlight is cavern, and dixie stampede!
