My daughter and I had the BEST time. I highly recommend this tour. I've taken tour before and this was by far the best, unlike my 1st tour our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very informative. Benjamin our tour guide ran our activity smoothly. He was a lot of fun and very helpful. Always ready to answer any questions that we had; We even had karaoke on the bus. It made for a much more smoother ride and it help kill time faster. The trip was long , thank god we stop every few hours to stretch our legs and use the restroom. The view from the smoky mountains were Incredible. The cavern was pretty cool. But you'll need a light sweater. Because it's a bit cold in there. Over all this tour was amazing. We had such an incredible trip. I will definitely be booking my next tour trip on here. Again, I highly recommend this tour, you won't regret it.

Excellent Service and Trip ! Tour Guide Mr.Harvey and Driver Mr.Wen were very flexible, professional, and Kind ( No pushing & hurrying, at the same time giving upfront target schedules). I recommend a must visit - Smokey Mountain. I traveled with my family ( including young children ) , I am thankful to Tour Guide, Bus Driver and my fellow tourist / travelers for being kind and making it memorable. I would highly recommend the tour guide (Mr.Harvey ), Take Tour Organization, and this itinerary. Thank You for Everything ! Sandeep

This trip was wonderful. Our tour guide, Benjamin, spoke very good english and constantly attended to our every need. We saw so much in such a short time. Natural wonders explained to us by our bilingual tour guide added so much depth and enjoyment into our trip.
