Let’s start before the existence of Pink Jeep Tours in the Smoky Mountains. The Pink Jeep Tours began 58 years ago in the year 1960 to be exact, in Arizona. It was founded by Don Pratt, who was a real estate broker. He conducted tours for people on the side, and people loved it! By 1988, the company was bought by Shawn Wendell. It wasn’t until 2001 that the company started to open tours in Las Vegas and the year 2012 for the Grand Canyon. Then, just last year, Herschend Enterprises purchased Pink Jeep Tours.
All these years, Pink Jeep Tours have served around five and a half million people and have hosted around 783,568 tours. They are one of the best guided tours in the Southwest, particularly in Sedona’s Red Rocks, The Grand Canyon, and Las Vegas and that is with very good reason.
Pink Jeep Tours in the Smoky Mountains has been thoroughly thought of and planned in a way that ensures the success of every tour. They didn’t just buy a jeep, hire a driver, and drive you around the Smokies. No, it’s so much more than that. First, let’s talk about the ride. You’ll feel secure with the Pink Jeep Tours in the Smoky Mountains because they provide state-of-the-art vehicles and nothing less. Overall, the company has Jeep Wranglers, Tour Trekker SUVs, and Mercedes Benz Sprinters.
And for the great outdoors of the Smoky Mountains, they chose the Jeep Wrangler to lead the tour. They customized all their vehicles in all aspects to ensure your safety, comfort, and thrill. Some of the upgrades the jeeps have are the upgrade on the axles, suspension, extra passenger seating complete with comfortable upholstery and a canopy. They have covers that will shield you from the sun and a heater to keep you warm, but if the weather is great, they can pull up the covers so you can get a breath of fresh air. As a result, passengers have ample room, a safe and enjoyable tour with the quality of the vehicle to match Mother Nature’s challenges. Don’t let the pink paint fool you, this 4×4 is a monster outside but is fully equipped to make everyone on the ride comfortable.
Next, let’s talk about the tour guides. The guides are just as top caliber as the vehicle themselves. First, the guides undergo different types of trainings and certifications to qualify. For example, they have extensive driving training through the Smith System© Driver Safety Training. They also have to acquire CPR certification and first aid certification so that their passengers can receive immediate attention wherever they may be. Passenger safety is really one of their main concerns.
They are also locals of the area where tours are available. The company knows that locals are the best people to tell the stories of their home. The tour guides undergo the National Association for Interpretation training to help them pave the way for a fascinating tour. Getting locals also adds a passionate drive to showcase all the best aspects of the area and the unmatchable protective care for the land. They also prepare to give you additional info during the tour. They can give you educational information as well as unique stories only they can tell.
The guides also walk the talk. They don’t just say it’s an excellent place to bring your bike or to go on a hike for the sake of having something to say. The guides are adventurous souls themselves! When they are not on tour, you can be sure they are trying out everything in that area themselves. This assures you that you are getting firsthand advice from people who’ve really tried these activities. And they can give you the best tips around. Therefore, the guides can share their knowledge and suggestions with you because of their experience.
