Keith is the man!!!

Keith was an absolutely incredible tour guide. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about what he does that it really shows. The ride was insanely comfortable and looking out at the blue ridge parkway while learning about the history of Asheville is blissful. Keith was also very accommodating with a variety of snacks and cold drinks. The waterfalls were beautiful and so worth the mini hike. We are so grateful that this was our first Asheville experience. Highly highly recommend

Best day in the Asheville area. Keith was the best guide with his love and knowledge of nature coupled with his long time living in the area. He even worked at the Biltmore Estate when it was being restored and was able to give us a lot of insight into that process. Tour spots were great

Our guide, Keith, was knowledgeable and awesome. Not only did he entertain us with stories but also pointed out native species on our hike. Being close to the falls and experiencing the amazing splendor of nature was awe-inspiring. Would definitely revisit falls in future.

VISITING THE BLUE RIDGE FORREST

We had Keith as our guide, who knew the facts and history and lay of the land and shared as much of this knowledge that he could fit into the short time we were with him. The hike in the woods seemed to be very creative. I came away with so much knowledge how the Vanderbilt family helped develop the study of forestry how to preserve the natural resources.

This is a great way to see the Blue Ridge Parkway and get a sense of the grandiose nature around Asheville with lovely company! I am a solo traveler and debated renting a car for a solo adventure and hike. I am SO HAPPY I chose to do the guided hike with Keith instead! He picked me up from my Air BnB, dropped me off wherever I wanted to be dropped off afterwards, and the entire day, fed us (it was me and a couple on the tour) bits of historic and natural info about the great mountains and the flora and fauna we encountered. I will surely sign up again next time I'm in Asheville! Such a great value!
