Our tour guide, Paul, was top notch. He was amazingly knowledgeable about the region we visited, including its fauna and flora. Paul’s love and joy for what he does is contagious and made us wanted to learn from him. The region is so beautiful and Paul took his time to allow us to enjoy every moment of our tour. I highly recommend this tour and don’t forget to ask for Paul as your guide.

This was one of the best experiences during our trip! It was exactly what we were hoping for! Chris is a super nice guy and extremely knowledgeable about the woods, birds, waterfalls and entire area! He took us to some amazing views! And additional Places that we can’t wait to return too!

Paul was such an amazing guide. He was so knowledgeable about the natural habitat of the forest and we learned a lot About the birds, the plants, and the trees. He made the tour funny, interesting, and never hesitated to take photos of my husband and I (and there were plenty of photo ops)! When Paul learned it was our honeymoon, he even took us to an extra waterfall to make the experience even more Romantic. We would definitely recommend Paul to anyone wishing to experience a day of adventure, beautiful sights, and hiking for any level ! Thank you again for an unforgettable honeymoon Adventure !

We had the most wonderful day with Emily and Paul, both extremely knowledgeable of the area. Turned out to be a personal tour for my friend and I. I can't thank Paul returning to the starting point to retrieve my day bag left behind while he allowed us to enjoy the first waterfalls with Emily guiding us. All the stops and waterfalls were just wonderful along with ample learning about the local trees, plants and critters. The hikes were not too difficult so we really got to enjoy the scenery. We ended the tour at Pisgah Inn and the views were just spectacular. The drive to and from downtown Asheville was easy and would highly recommend this tour to others who want to enjoy a nice 1/2 day of hiking and spectacular scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountain area.

What a wonderful adventure! Out your guide, Paul, was the best. He was knowledgeable, insightful, funny and inspiring! We visited 3 waterfalls, each one more awe striking that the one before. He went at our pace and gave us the option of how much information we wanted to take in. This was our first hike and it was amazing. He really set the bar high for our next hiking tour.
