As long-time locals, we were surprised at how much new and colorful Asheville history we learned from our terrific tour guide, "Uncle" Ted White. He's an actual AVL native, and very funny! I'm sure the two day "hop on, hop off" feature is ideal for out of town visitors. We should have done this long ago!

Great way to see the city. You can get on/off at several sites on the tour. The trolley drivers were fun and entertaining. Felt like we really saw a lot of the city. The visitor center, where you catch the trolley was easy to find and had good parking

Their hop on hop off policy is a great value when visiting Asheville, you can use the trolley for two days and it stops at many Asheville locations with pickups about every 30 minutes. You could see pretty much everything Asheville has to offer and not worry about parking. We enjoyed all the drivers, each with his or her on spin on the history, they were all entertaining. Keep in mind if you are here to visit Biltmore it is best to drive your on car, Biltmore Estate is sprawling and it is 3 miles from the front entrance to the house.

There are 2 companies offering tours around Asheville. Gray Line Tours uses red trolleys and the other company uses white trolleys. We took the red trolleys and we were very pleased with the tour. Our tour guide's name was Matt and he was entertaining and provided us with lots of information.

The best place to pick up the tour is at the visitor's center because there is ample room to park your vehicle. We were told that parking might not be available at some of the other pickup locations. You can get off at various locations where the trolley stops and pick up the a later trolley to continue your tour. Also, the pass you get is good for 2 days so you can ride around on the first day and go back on another day and get off at specific locations for sightseeing or to have lunch at one of the many restaurants along the tour.
