Cades Cove Heritage Tours is a private non-profit seeking to provide a superior visitor experience that allows visitors to protect the natural and cultural resources of Cades Cove. Cades Cove Heritage Tours began in the summer of 2007; originally created by local citizens who were concerned about the air quality and overcrowding in Cades Cove and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the purpose of Cades Cove Heritage Tours is two-fold. First, tours are designed to provide visitors with interpretative experiences worthy of the natural wonder and diverse history of the Cove. Second, the tours assist in alleviating the overcrowding of traffic and pollution in the Cove.
