We really enjoyed the tour. Learned a ton about Asheville and helped us get our bearings for the layout of downtown. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your review and recommendation! I am always happy when our tour happens early in someone's stay in Asheville because I try to help orient them to the city and all the wonderful places and activities it has to offer! I usually have more to recommend than people can actually do in one stay, but Asheville is just that great! Electro Bike Tours is rolling out an additional route this spring, so please come back and see what else our little mountain town has to offer!

Had never ridden an electric bike. It was fun and very helpful going up the hills of Asheville. Kelvin, our guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us good instructions about riding and interesting information about the city. I'll come back and do this again. And maybe rent one of your bikes for a day ride.

Thanks so much for this excellent review! I'm so glad that you had such a great ride with Kelvin, and it's truly hard to find anyone friendlier or more knowledgeable about life in Asheville! If you come back to town, please check out the exciting new route that Electro Bike Tours is planning for this spring. We look forward to riding with you again!

We had a terrific time on our bike tour in Asheville. We were amazed at how easy the assisted pedaling made our trip up and down the hills. It was a glorious day to be out enjoying the sights and our guide was full of information he shared at each stop. We would recommend it for any age. You can ride with no assist, medium assist or lots of assist-- totally fun even for me and I was celebrating my 75th birthday that week.

Thanks for the excellent review! I love that you are still riding at 75 and that you had an easy time up and down the hills of Asheville with our bikes! You point out one of my favorite features of electric bikes, that they make riding accessible to so many more people of all ages and abilities! It is such a joy to see the empowerment that people feel when they first try an electric bike and realize that they can go places that they couldn't before! Electro Bike Tours is planning to roll out a new tour this spring, so please come back and ride with us for your 76th birthday!

Thank you so much to Torin our guide for providing my mom and I with a super fun and comprehensive tour of Asheville! For starters, if you are looking for an eco-friendly all encompassing tour of the city of Asheville, without the tenuous physical strain of a traditional mountain bike tour, then look no further! The electric bikes that Electro-Bike tours provides are super user friendly and seriously make take the challenge out of the mountain terrain of Asheville. As a native of Asheville, I have to say that I learned quite a few things about my town from Torin! All in all, I would definitely recommend this tour to locals and newcomers to the town alike! Awesome tour!

It was a pleasure to ride with you and your mom, and it means so much to me that you chose our tour as a way to spend time together while she was here!
