“One hour well spent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

We were in Hot Springs for the day because we had just read A Short Time to Stay Here by Terry Roberts which takes place in Hot Springs, NC during WW1. We stumbled upon the tour company at noon by the tourist information center and hopped on board for a great ride with Scott. He has a vast knowledge of the area and eager to inform. I definitely recommend his services.

“Best tour on our North Carolina vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Family of four visited Asheville and then Madison County for a week. We wanted to get familiar with Hot Springs and found this tour. It was a great tour...we learned about the history of the area and saw things we wouldn't have otherwise seen. What a great way to spend the morning!

“GREAT tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

My husband and I were in Hot Springs, NC this weekend and we took the tour and it was awesome! The guide was so knowledgeable and I don't typically like history but he really brought it all to life for us. After the tour we spent the day exploring because of all the suggestions and information we were given. This tour made such a difference in our level of excitement for being in Hot Springs. If you are in Hot Springs for the weekend, you MUST take this tour.

“Don't miss this tour! Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We loved, loved, loved this tour of Hot Springs, NC. It is the best way to understand
this unique mountain town and to get your bearings. In fact, without the tour, one might
miss the best parts of Hot Springs....it starts at the Visitors Center...meaders through
back roads, trails, bridges and springs. Do not miss it. History comes to life. Five stars!!!

“Very informative! Very friendly guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We recently went on a day trip to Hot Springs, NC. The highlight of the visit was the Hot Springs Tour Co. Very knowledgeable about the quaint town. Very fair price, it is the first thing you need to do when you get there.
