I had a great driver and guide. Very knowledgeable about the area and the history of Cades Cove. Willing to either spend time at the right stops if we needed or requested it. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

It was a very enjoyable tour. Terry was an awesome guide. Most memorable was being able to get pics of mother bear and her three cubs!
Nice way to view the cove

Terry was very knowledgeable about the cove. Very interesting and very congenial. Group was small enough that you were able to hear her description.

Amazing, informative, fun tour of Cade's Cove
, Apr 2021
Guide was, informative, interesting facts! We told her we wanted to see bears and she pulled out all the stops! We saw 2!! Terry was also a wealth of recommendations on area restaurants and attractions which was helpful. My only recommendation is that we were not told and could not find info about lunch needs. Take a lunch or hearty snacks.
Worthwhile trip

We took the 5 hour Cades Cove with Matt. He was the greatest! It was nice to have a guide who is a hometown guy and knows the history and sometimes secret stories of the Cove. Very interesting and entertaining at the same time. Hats off to Matt. Thank you Viator. You have never let us down.
