We stopped at the VC to get some maps and info. Best thing I picked up was a beer tour book of Asheville. Lots of fine breweries in Asheville.

Stopped by when went on bus tour. They were helpful, friendly, patient, and good experience. Best of all, I ran into the best tour guide, "Uncle Ted" and he was giving more knowledge on Ashville. There was a wonderful gentleman who came outside to check our tickets when we initially were walking around and little confused. Now, maybe, there were... More

Stop by as you enter town for tickets, helpful maps, and touring tips! Our ten-minute stop saved hours of searching on the Internet. The staff is so knowledgeable and friendly!

if you haven't been there before than visit this location. The trolley tour either starts or goes here. You can get tickets for Biltmore here. Trolley also stops at the Grove Park Inn

This large, conveniently located, well-designed visitor center is staffed with people who are well trained and eager to please. We came here because it is the designated starting point for the Overview tour offered by Gray Line Trolley Tours, but we ended up spending a good deal of time browsing the displays, getting brochures, chatting with the staff and searching...

We started our visit to Asheville here. Easy to get to and free parking. Tons of information and brochures. We received some good tips from a gentleman who worked there wearing a festive jester Christmas hat (I didn't get his name). He confirmed some of our restaurant choices, and best of all, suggested walking the Urban Trail which was one... More

This local visitor center is really worth a stop on your arrival into town. We went to the main location (not downtown) and they were very helpful. Lots of info to plan a trip.

Stopped first at the sub station off of Pax Square. Gentleman directed us to the main Visitors center and provided easy to follow directions. Upon arriving at the main visitor's center, we perused the information, signed up for a trolley tour, and did a little shopping in the gift store.
