My husband and I went to Asheville for a week, did many fun things and particularly loved Electro Bike Tours. I am not a very experienced bike rider but Torin was very patient and kind. The places we stopped at were very interesting and not too much history but just the right amount. The bikes are awesome to ride on. The hills were a snap because of the motor. I would highly recommend putting this on your to do list while visiting Asheville and even if you live there. Thanks Torin !

Thanks so much for writing such a kind review! I know that you guys did a lot in Asheville. I’m so honored that your tour with me was a highlight! I had a great time riding with you guys too! I really appreciated hearing your impressions of Curate, the Funkatorium and the Beaufort Inn, all of which I routinely recommend. I hope you’ll be back to Asheville before too long so we can ride together again!

Torin was a GREAT tour guide who was very knowledgable about the city and highlighted the history of Asheville in a well-rounded and honest way. The bikes are great, very easy to use and I barely broke a sweat because I chose to cruise at a higher gear. The trail was a good mix of downtown, landmarks and a nice botanical park. I highly recommend this tour.

Wow!! Thanks so much for the review! I really loved my ride with you two! I especially enjoyed being a part of your once-a-month adventures! You're such a fun couple, I think your strategy must be working! I'm also glad that my presentation of Asheville's history resonated with you. I'm always learning and trying to find effective ways to share the aspects that I'm passionate about! Next time you are up the mountain keep an eye out for our new tours and come ride again!

We loved our electric bike tour! Torin gave us a lot of information as we rode through town and was a great guide! We really enjoyed stopping at some of the locations on our tour to go inside, like The Grove Park Inn and the Basilica of St. Lawerence. We had never ridden electric bicycles prior to this tour, so that was also a fun experience. It made pedaling up the hills so much easier. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone wanting to experience Asheville in a fun and unique way. We hope to take another tour next time we’re in Asheville!

Awesome Awesome Awesome!! I would definitely do again. Torin was an excellent tour guide. Very professional, interesting and informative of Asheville. He was more than willing to answer any questions we had. The tour was 8 mile but was an easy ride
