Cades Cove Sightseeing Bus Tour
From US$ 55.00
Heavy traffic can take away from the fun of driving the 11-mile (17.7 kilometer) Cades Cove loop. This guided bus tour offers a low-stress alternative to taking your own car, plus provides the benefit of guided commentary so you get more out of the trip than just a chance to admire mountain scenery.
What to Expect

Family day, easy hiking

Great car tour, we did not see a lot of animals, but was told that is very rare. Neat buildings, with a bit of a history lesson. Enjoyed the easy walks.

Currently we can not accommodate scooters, only fold up wheel chairs. We are working on adding more buses including a handicap bus in the near future.
