Blue Ridge Hiking Experience
, Oct 2020
Blue Ridge Waterfalls hike and extensive review of the area was fantastic. Keith was so well adversed knowing the area well. Very informative and caring for his 4 passengers. Also had some snacks and adhered to social distancing, requiring masks and made sure at all times we were cared for. Picked us up on time and made sure we were back to our hotel location always making sure we were OK and did we have any additional questions.

Keith was knowledgeable &passionate about the beautiful natural setting he led us through. Although we are “seniors”, we were able to keep a good pace with his guidance to 3 separate waterfalls

Waterfall tour with Keith
, Apr 2019
We had an amazing experience with our tour guide he was so informative about the history of Asheville and The Vanderbilts. We were visiting from Florida ( elevation sea level) and not hikers, he was more than patient as we hiked up to 4000’ plus, not an easy journey for senior citizens. I would HIGHLY recommend Keith he did above and beyond our expectations and we had a wonderful time. NC is absolutely beautiful and we are blessed to have such an amazing guide.
