Definitely worth the time to check out and see some hidden gems around the smokies with a professional tour guide. my wife and I came for this tour as part of our honeymoon and loved every second of it. I learned so much from the guide! If I am ever back in town, I will book another event with Mark.

Best part of our trip was our guided hike with Mark! He is full of knowledge and we were able to enjoy the hike more than if we explored on our own. Would 100% recommend Mark!!

What an amazing, beautiful, rewarding experience! We had such a good time on the waterfall hike. Mark had a variety of exciting information about different flowers, history, and fun jokes that kept me on my toes. It was incredibly kind of him to bring extra snacks, water, and hiking sticks for everyone. We highly recommend participating in one of the guided hikes Mark offers. We are not avid hikers by any means and we had a wonderful time!

Mark went out of his way to make us feel a sense of awe and inform us of where we were and what we were seeing/experiencing. We could not have done the trails we did and see what we saw without him. Even as novice, he made us feel empowered and helped us with everything. I would sign up for anything he was offering knowing I was in very capable hands.
