Charlotte 6am Christmas Tour

I like how the tour guide asked us if it was ok if he didn’t wear a mask and gave us good recommendations on where to eat in the city. He was very kind and outgoing to the bystanders in Charlotte which was nice to see.

Asheville City Guided Walking Tour

Asheville City Guided Walking Tour

star-5
2020 has been hard on us - for a limited time I'm offering this tour for tips only. Please be respectful of my time & let me know if you do not intend to show. My free time is valuable too, thanks! Tour value of $45pp. This is a Boutique tour - Brass Monkey takes a maximum of 10 people! This allows me to spend quality time with you. Asheville City Tour is an extended walking tour of downtown Asheville (cemetery not currently included due to not being able to meet 6ft guidelines in vehicle). We walk for approximately 2 miles at a comfortable pace over 2 to 2.5 hrs. We start downtown: looking at glorious art-deco architecture coupled with an in-depth history of Asheville. We will stop at several locations and delve into the intriguing history of many of Asheville's past literary and notable residents including O'Henry, Thomas Wolfe and the 'founding fathers' of Asheville. The walking element of the tour is classified as easy/moderate. This tour is for history and architecture buffs!
