This was an amazing adventure. Our guide Mark is extremely knowledgeable and an amazing host of the smokey mountains. Mark pointed absolutely beautiful spots to take pictures, as well as the beautiful mountains flowers. Mark's care of nature was refreshing. Will definitely be returning for more adventures with Mark.

Great hiking experience! Mark shared interesting facts about the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and we not only enjoyed the hike, but learned things we wouldn’t have. He was attentive to the energy and attitudes of our 11 and 13 year olds and kept them engaged. Highly recommend.

Mark is extremely knowledgeable about the Smokey Mountains, and gives thoughtful insight on the plants and wildlife in the area. The hike was beautiful, and Mark is a super interesting and friendly tour guide. He also tells a great joke or two! Thanks again Mark for the awesome experience!

If you’re looking for an informative, healthy walk through some of the very beautiful Smoky Mt. National Park, Mark was absolutely outstanding in personalizing the trip and educating you about a variety of things like plants, trees and wildlife. Including fun facts about the history of the area and more, at this price I cannot recommend this enough. Mark really takes it to another level with his expertise, even recommending local restaurants for after. (They were delicious Mark, thanks!)

Mark is super informative and awesome at reaching out to you to make sure you are ready and have everything you need for the hike. The company he owns does more than just private hiking tour guides. Check him out on Carolina Bound adventures. He does cabin rentals AND he’ll stock the groceries in the cabin so you don’t have to run all about when you get in, although we did not book this trip with those services, we for sure will next time. I HIGHLY recommend booking with him and checking him out.
