Itinerary
Day 01
New York

New York - Luray Caverns

Hotel: Quality Inn Christiansburg, VA / Quality Inn Roanoke Airport, VA or similar

Depart from NYC heading to Virginia State, and our first sightseeing at this journey is the most stunning and largest cave of the entire east coast, the Luray Caverns, which is one of the National Natural Landmark of US. The underground cavern system is generously adorned with speleothems (columns, mud flows, stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, mirrored pools, etc.) The path that goes through Luray Caverns starts at the entrance. Next it curves throughout the caverns and there is a spring of water called Dream Lake. Stalactites are reflected in the water making them appear to be Stalagmites. This illusion is often so convincing that people are unable to see the real bottom. The caverns are perhaps best known for the Great Stalacpipe Organ, a lithophone made from solenoid fired strikers that tap stalactites of various sizes to produce tones similar to those of xylophones, tuning forks, or bells.

Tips:
If the Luray Cavern is closed, we will go to Shenandoah Cavern instead.

Day 02
Chattanooga

Great Smoky Mountains – Dixie Stampede Dining Show

Hotel: La Quinta Inn Chattanooga, TN / Clarion Inn Cleveland, TN or similar

In the morning we head to Tennessee, known as a home for country music. We will stop at a welcome center and continue the trip with more knowledge to the musical history and heritage of Tennessee. We will drive through the Great Smoky Mountains. With the innovative itinerary, everyone has this unique chance to visit the most popular National Park. It is the major tourist attraction in the Eastern United States. The most popular scenic point of the Park is Newfound Gap, which is located at an altitude of 5046 feet between the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. From the platform, it allows visitors to see a 360-degree panorama of the surroundings, giving visitors a spectacular view and fresh air of the mountains. Open areas in the park offer some best opportunities to see wildlife, for example black bear, elk, white-tail deer, as well as over 1,500 kinds of wildflowers. (Note: we charge $20/person for Great Smoky Mountains In-depth Tour.)

After a stop in Gatlinburg, TN, we will continue on to Pigeon Forge, TN which is a family-friendly mountain town within the Smokies. Here you can attend the most visited dinner attraction in America (at your own expense): Dixie Stampede, dine in a dinner theatre where you can watch a brilliant show with 32 horses and a cast of top-notch riders plus a mouth-watering four-course feast complete with a delicious dessert! They will thrill you with daring feats of trick riding and competition, pitting North against South in a friendly and fun rivalry. You will also enjoy music, dancing, special effects and family friendly comedy along the way. And then, we will go and stay in Chattanooga, TN at night.

      Good tour if you like to spend a lot of time in the bus

      - tour started in China Town, NY at 8 am - Bus was very good - had WIFI and could charge our phones with USB - Accomodation was okay, luckily we had breakfast 2 times - long journey by bus to get to Tennessee - last day of tour you sit i...n the bus most of the time - Tour Guide 'Sunny' was very nice !!! He was very helpful, gave recommendations and was very kind - My favorites are: Luray Caverns, Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, Ruby Falls + Rock City, and Natural Bridge (I did not watch the Dixie Stampede show) - The only thing I would criticize is that especially there was not enough time visiting the Great Smoky Mountains as well Gatlinburg Read full review

    Dear Sundararaman,

    Thank you very much for your inquiry.

    During the winter season the temperature will mostly be cold throughout November and December with average annual temperatures ranging around 60°F or about 15°C through out the day, but most all attractions should still be accessible.

    We recommend that if you are planning to take this tour during the winter season that you take the necessary precautions to stay safe and warm. Please also check on the weather forecast days prior to your tour's departure.

    Most of the attractions that are not weather dependable will be able to run. Additional tours that require activities outdoors have a possibility of being closed if there is snowfall.

    Thank you.

    Please let me know which one is correct.
