We chose SMG based on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Clayton was fantastic in every possible way. He was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. SME is great! **we actually went may 2015 but were not provided that option.

We took the Classic Tour about a month ago, but still wanted to get a review written because this tour was the highlight of our trip to the Great Smokies! Clayton was the best :-)...so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating to the group. Weather was perfect, the group was friendly and the tour guide made our day!

My husband and I went to the Smokey Mountains for our 12 year anniversary. All I can say is "ya'll if you haven't been, please go." Of course we were there in the midst of the changing colors and it was absolutely breathtaking. If it wasn't for a shame, I would say it should at least be considered as one... More

One of the best tour I have ever taken but excellent and best tour guide I have ever met (name is Clayton, if I remember correctly). Tour started on time. Lot of flexibility for pick up and drop off location around Gatlinburg. Tour guide drove us all through the mountain by providing details about lot of locations on the way.... More

We originally signed up for the Mountains & Moonshine tour. There was only one other couple, but they dropped out at the last minute. Clayton told us we could do pretty much whatever we wanted to do in the time allotted. We did not understand that the Moonshine Tour spent 90 minutes in the Sugarland Distillery so we opted for...

Most tours are only as good as the tour guide. We did a 5 hour tour of Cade's Cove (almost an hour driving time each way) with Phillip. His knowledge runs deep about the cove and he really knows a lot about the Smoky Mountains in general. He told many stories about the people and their history in the cove.... More

My husband and I went with Clayton of Smoky Mountain Guides on road trips for 3 consecutive days in October. Every trip was worth! We were the first to sign in for the leaf chasers tour of the season. The locations chosen were excellent and perfect for photography! As we had Clayton for all 3 days, he made sure that... More

My husband and I went on the 3 hour National Park Tour and had an absolute blast!! Clayton (our tour guide) was incredible and made the whole trip worth while! He provided a ton of great information about the Smoky Mountains, its history, and other random facts about the National Park. He was also very flexible about what we wanted... More

Clayton was our guide and was excellent. Three of us were celebrating our 60th birthdays, none of us avid hikers. He was very patient and helpful getting us through some of the rougher terrain. All the while, explaining history of the area and telling us all about the native plants and trees. It was a very enjoyable and informative morning.... More
