This was the highlight of our vacation! The teenagers enjoyed the birds. It is a beautiful peaceful place. We enjoyed feeding the nectar to the birds and getting our pic taken for a small fee! Our whole family enjoyed the visit
Tip: The parking is pretty bad and the parking lot is very steep! It levels out a little inside

"Fantastic Visit"
August, 2016
This was an amazing visit for our group. We had 15 people with us at the time of our visit and the staff made sure everyone had a wonderful time. They made sure our pictures were beautiful and that the kids handled as many birds as they wanted to. The grounds were clean and beautiful and all of the birds looked well kept and taken care of. This was one of the kids favorite experiences over our vacation. Thanks for having us and we will definitely be back to visit!
Tip: Bring your camera and be prepared to walk uphill and down.

"Great time"
June, 2016
I love going here, I try to go every trip! I love interacting with the birds and I have a few favorite ones I go see. Some can be a little crabby and bite you when you try to feed them so watch out on that. Good fun and so relaxing.

"Very disappointed"
June, 2016
I was at parrot mountain today. I came with my handicap neice. She don't walk, talk or understand. Someone told ask about taking the golf cart. We didn't get to see everything. Never went to garden of Eden.But you charged me for a childs rate and 25.00 for the golf cart. I just think you should of waved the cart fee. It was not easy to push her up to the entrance. Just think you should be alittle more kinder to handicap children/young adults. I know not all handicap are the same.
Tip: If pushing a wheelchair think twice about going.

"Fantastic Trip for Bird Lovers"
October, 2015
It was an amazing and breathtaking experience for avian fanatics. My boyfriend who isn't into birds loved it because he was able to interact with each unique bird with its own talent. I love seeing them not being trapped in their cages and move freely. I really enjoyed feeding nectar to the lorikeets. They eat very quickly and love shiny things. Definitely worth my entire wallet. I drove from the Northeast just for this and I was not disappointed. Wish TN wasn't so far away!
Tip: The mountain is extremely steep and the roads are super windy!!! Please drive carefully. I wish they had a little bus that could pick up everyone from the bottom.

First time here and all I have to say is wow. So many birds. Just wonderful. My daughter and us loved it here. The birds are all over the place just sitting there. Can't believe they all stay. Never seen anything like this place. It's hilly so wear shoes not flip flops. Your on top of a mountain and it's kinda steep. See the pics. So worth every penny. Take some dollar bills or quarters for extra food. There are so many birds it's unreal. We will come back again. Don't forget to get a picture with all the birds. We got the 15.00 picture and it comes in a clear cover with a magnet for the fridge. They also let us take pictures with phones. So much fun. This is a must.

We like to find local attractions; not chains that can be found in many tourist places. This place did not disappoint. We spent about 2.5 hrs there and spent about $120 for 5. That included entry, an 8x10 photo and food for the birds. There are spiritual messages throughout and a prayer garden with sections depicting the life of Jesus, from birth to his rising. Kids didn't want to leave. If you are so inclined and have anywhere between $500-$4000 dollars to spare you can take home your own parrot. If we come back to Pigeon Forge this may be a repeat treat. There's just so much to see and do in this city. Caution, you do have to drive up to the mountain and the parking lot is at a slant. The drive up may not be quick.

I visited Parrot Mountain with my husband, and parents, and we had such a great time! I was concerned that my dad wouldn't be able to go, since he can't walk very far, but I was very thankful to find out that they have golf carts that you can rent. Our driver, Terri, was great! She was a wealth of knowledge. My family loves birds and we really enjoyed seeing so many beautiful colors and varieties. The gardens were beautiful too - I enjoyed the scriptures and prayer garden. The owner has truly combined his love of exotic birds with his love of God. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. We've been going to the Smoky Mountains for years and this was our first time to visit Parrot Mountain, but it won't be our last. I can't wait to go again!
