Knoxville Walking Tour
Take some time to truly get to know the city with this fun Knoxville Walking Tour. This tour explores the unique eastern Tennessee town of Knoxville and is led and directed by Laura Still. Laura will serve as your group's knowledgeable storyteller and guide, telling you in an interesting manner all the major stories of Knoxville pioneers, soldiers, outlaws, and even fictional characters who have walked these exact streets you are! The extremely rich and colorful history of this city contains both famous and infamous figures, characters who have since their time inspired books, movies, and works of art. Use this opportunity to stroll along the beautiful scenery of downtown Knoxville while also learning and hearing harrowing, heroic, and heinous tales of local history (and trouble) makers.
Your group will have the opportunity to choose from several different guided tours, each by Laura Still and each inspired by the facts of local author and journalist Jack Neely. You can take holiday tours, seasonal tours, or the Civil War tour, in which you will learn about a city torn in two, spies, and Sunsphere attacks. You can also take the Shadowside, Ghosts of Old City, Musical History (from Cherokee tribal rhythms to Scotch-Irish blues), and Gunslingers Tours! You can even mix-n-match tours and add in such special options as the Literary Heritage Tour or Early Years Explained Tour. Whichever informational adventure you decide to take we ensure that your group will get an absolutely excellent mix of Knoxville city history, culture, and regional beauty! If you work up an appetite along the way don’t forget about all the delicious local eateries surrounding your tour downtown.
