Selected this basis the many reviews, but was rather disappointed. The guide was lackadaisical, and outside of a few pieces of trivia which I hadn't heard before, there really wasn't much to glean from the walk - if you had ready any basic guide book about Asheville, you would have known most of the facts that were shared. I was... More

This is THE BEST TOUR of downtown Asheville. We were so happy we did this. Kevin is an extremely knowledgeable guide and very personable. The tour was on audio of what Kevin was telling us and, therefore, easy to follow. If you want to know about Asheville ... this IS the tour.

We really enjoyed this. First they have the "whispers" so you can hear the guide w/o having to be right next to him which was great. I like to take pictures so this allowed me to lag behind a bit to get good photos while still hearing the commentary. He pointed out buildings and things I never would have saw... More

Lisa, it was great to have you and your husband on the tour. The "whisper" headsets make it so easy to hear your guide. It's especially great for a photographer such as yourself to capture a great pic and not miss the tour! Thanks for your review. More

Our tour with Sharon had some introductory information about the town of Asheville, and included a few nuggets of really interesting stuff. I though the walking pace was pretty slow, and I am 7 months pregnant. Sharon was pretty low-energy and almost seemed bored with the tour at times though. But all in all, we did learn more about the... More
