So Much Fun
Jun 2021 • Family
Our family had an excellent hike in the Smoky Mountains! It is one of my favorite memories from the trip.
Our trail guide was fantastic x10! He was so engaging, knowledgeable, and fun. Our little explorers want to know even more about nature now. Thank you!

Great walk with kids

We had a great time on our nature walk with Sam. She was very patient and kind. The kids especially loved learning more about bears and finding salamanders.

Perfect for preschoolers
We highly recommend the children’s hike with A Walk in the Woods! My 3 and 5 year old learned a ton, and had so much fun. Our guide Megan took us on a hike perfect for my preschoolers but also fun and informative for the adults in the family. W caught salamanders and found evidence of bears that we never would have noticed without Megan pointing it out. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

A Walk in the Woods
Apr 2021
Sam, our guide was wonderful with the 2 children as well as the adults. We had a nice hike at a pace that allowed us to experience all aspects of nature. Some of the highlights were feet in the creek, walking on bridges, salamander hunting, the last of the trilliums, chewing on a birch twig, seeing where settlers kept their milk and butter.... the girls were quoting Sam at dinner that evening!

AMAZING for kids
Jan 2021
Thank you, Michael!! We went with our 3, 4, and 6-year old children and were nervous that they wouldn't be able to keep up (even though the tour was geared towards children). Michael was so patient, helpful, and informative. It was my husband's favorite part of our trip, and my children all loved walking through the mountains! They got to facepaint with the rocks and jump over rivers through the rocks. Thank you for a wonderful time!!!

First hike in the smokies

Ms. Debbie was great! Made our hike fun for us and our little guy, and made it work despite the area being a little flooded from the recent rain. Great time in the outdoors!

Fantastic experience for the entire family!
Oct 2020
So happy we booked with a Walk in the Woods, we had a wonderful time! Our tour guide, Dylan, was extremely knowledgable, informative, had a great interaction with both kids and adults, was very patient (we faced unusual heavy traffic on our way to the meeting point and were extremely late), and brought us to a trail we would have never been able to find on our own. The kids got to eat plants and leafs, and still talk about the trees they learned about! This was by far my favourite activity from our Fall Break week in the Smokey Mountains and I thank Dylan and the Walk in the Woods group for that. We will definitely be back, and request Dylan as our guide!

A children's hike with A Walk in The Woods
Oct 2020
We did a "children's hike" with A walk in the woods. It was initially sold out and I had given up hope that I didn't book far enough in advance (apparently October is peak season at Smoky Mountains) but it is helpful to email the company and they put me on a "wait list" then I got off the waitlist. When I showed up we were the only family on the tour and it was essentially a private tour with a retired park ranger. Miss Debbie was great and incredibly knowledgeable about the trees and wild life. My son (6yrs old) was incredibly engaged during the tour and it was for sure the highlight of our visit to the area.

Outstanding Childrens hike
Oct 2020 • Family
The most beautiful hiking tour with a knowledgeable guide! Our kids 7 and 4, were captivated by every moment and lessons learned. The kids loved jumping in the creek, climbing the trails, seeing vegetation, insects and amphibians! Before we went on the hike my kids didn’t want to go, but the moment we got started, they loved every minute and didn’t want it to end!!!!! Our guide was wonderful and made the adventure perfect. We will do this again next time we come back to the Smokey mountains! Thank you!!!
