Six States tour

Mike & Donna's verdict:

On this tour you'll see why the Great Smoky Mountains is the most popular national park in the USA, and why the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the country's most scenic drives. It's an area we absolutely love, from its bourbon distilleries to its mansions, and all the way from Dollywood to the White House!

From the original home of KFC and “Dollywood” to the Great Smoky Mountains and the Gettysburg Battlefield Site, our two-week Historic Trails & Blue Ridge Mountains escorted tour takes you through six states, beginning and ending in Washington D.C.

You’ll see the humble cabin where Abraham Lincoln was born, visit a bourbon distillery, take the Blue Ridge Parkway and wonder at the natural beauty of the Shendoah National Park – and those are just a few of the highlights.

This sensational trip also includes a tour of the 7,500 acre Biltmore Estate and the Kentucky Horse Park and there are two nights in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

There’s expert guiding throughout, bringing to life America’s history, colonial heritage and modern-day wonders – and who wouldn’t want to miss a Dixie Stampede at Dollywood, the theme park created by Dolly Parton…?
