This is our fifth trip in the summer to Asheville and we have done many tours of the city from bus tours to beer tours to food tours. The Asheville by Foot - Walking Tour is excellent. Kevan is very professional and knowledgeable about Asheville. First we were impressed with his promptness and efficiency for the tour. He has an audio system where each person has a headset making it very easy to hear him and really learn all that he has to share. Walking on sometimes traffic busy streets often makes it difficult to hear the leader. Not so with Kevan- we easily heard all his delightful, intriguing, and insightful information on Asheville. Taking us in a figure 8 walking tour of Asheville, we visited numerous areas we had not seen on previous tours and gained even more insight into this amazing town. Kevan provides a rich history of Asheville - from its beginning, how it got its name, growth, paying off its bond debt, its decline, how it came to be where it is today and visions for the future. Kevan has gathered extensive information on the city and has a delivery style that makes it most interesting. Our tour lasted the full 2 hours and the time went by so quickly.
There is a lot of walking so be sure to wear comfy shoes. Sunglasses are helpful also. We are not sure how far we walked but we covered a lot of the city.
