It was a wonderful time. Well worth the price and so informative. We got to learn about how Cherokees produced their own items; how they still live; and talk to the Guides. These Guides actually take time to explain stuff to you...especially, when the children...More

A must stop while traveling in this area. So much to see and do. My wife learned so much at this village. Watching Indians in the habitat they once lived was so interesting.

Today my friend & I toured this Cherokee village. Our tour guide, Chipper, was knowledgeable, clear speaking & willing to answer all questions. She also participated in the dance presentation which was more entertaining than expected. Would highly recommend for all ages.

So much to learn. Watch the young people do several of their dances. The person doing the calling of the dances told what each dance means. The tour was nice, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Will go back.

A very pleasant way to spend a few hours. We booked our visit on line and our receipt allowed us to leave and return later during the day if we wished
