Make new memories and discover what makes our area so special ~ places visitors rarely see and can hardly imagine.

Mountain Memory Tours is a locally owned and operated scenic sightseeing tour company that delivers insightful narration and delightful stories about mountain folklore while exploring the Appalachian roads less traveled.

Take this historical, cultural and leisurely ride along the hills and hollows of the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee.  You’ll see places where Dolly Parton played music, learned her three “R’s” and worshiped as a child.   Awaken your senses as you experience the natural beauty of a river flowing under a covered bridge, picturesque homesteads in almost forgotten communities and the magic of the Smoky Mountain mist.

Mountain Memory Tour Excursions, onboard our charming 14 passenger "mini" tour bus, offers wonderful opportunities to learn what makes these Smoky Mountains so unique and fascinating.
