Take a trip into historic Cade's Cove. Once known as Cates Cove, named after the wife of a Cherokee Chief who had taken a Christian name after converting to Christianity. Chief Abram also adopted a Christian name and now has a waterfall in Cades Cove named after him. Learn this and more on a 5 hour bus tour of the famous Cades Cove. If this area of the Great Smoky Mountains was its own national park it would be the 2nd most visited park in the United Sates.

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!
Awesome & fun tour

Matt was great. He had lots of "insider" info & stories from someone who had grown up in this area. He knows the families of people who are stars & have invested in this area. We learned a lot, saw a black bear ambling in the forest & very large wild turkeys. The only thing to add would be better signage at pickup site. Worth it! Jay & Bettie Seman

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 Cool Destinations. You have never let us down.

This was a wonderful tour! Pam was a wonderful tour guide, showing us the wonderful sights of Cade's Cove, and engaging us with stories of the history and culture of the area. Despite a good deal of rain, it didn't detract from the sights or enjoyment. We were delighted that even though we and our friends one couple were the only people on the tour, they did not cancel, and we were never rushed. As a bonus, we saw bears in four!!! different spots, including a mother and 2 cubs that were pretty close to the road. Don't miss this tour.
