Didn't know much about Cherokee. It was eye opening and had a great conversation with the guide. Must place to go even for a traveler.

I think the best thing about this place is that it feels so authentic and genuine. There's always something to do or see, where it's a performance or a demonstration, and the guides are super knowledgeable and good with kids. Definitely buy something from the gift shop!
