Hike the best of the Blue Ridge Parkway with a 5-hour guided trip to three scenic waterfalls from Asheville. Take in views of the mountains as you tour the classic road in a comfortable van, and hear stories about the area’s natural history and culture from your local guide. Watch for blooming laurels and rhododendron as you walk the easy to moderate trails through lush oak and hickory forests. Enjoy light refreshments along the way with plenty of time to relax by the falls before returning to Asheville.
Keith was a wonderful guide, friendly and informative. Beautiful scenery, would highly recommend.
What a great way to see fabulous views and enjoy a beautiful fall hike. We were picked up at our hotel and transported in a comfortable van with a nice group of outdoor enthusiasts. The hike was at a nice moderate pace and we were able to relax and enjoy nice conversation knowing our guide knew exactly where to take us. Our guide was engaging knowledgeable and made every effort to make sure we were all accounted for and safe. Our stops were all beautiful as were the waterfalls and the drive itself.
Great trip perfect for me and my husband
This was great however you do need to be in shape. I don't exercise much and this hike was not easy . I had read it was easy there is a lot of up hill steep walking. The guide was great and the walk beautiful and well worth the trip.
The views were breathtaking, the information given extensive, the pace was geared to the groups ability. We certainly would go on another tour.

Beautiful, informative tour and hike. Would definitely recommend.
Our tour guide Keith was very accommodating, pleasant and informative. We saw spectacular views. It was a very enjoyable trip.
Keith knows the area in and out and he knows how to tell the story. We took a lot from it. The hours went by way too fast.
Keith, our guide, was terrific. He accommodated different levels of ability and made sure we all got the most of the trip. Enjoyed this very much and highly recommend.
We booked the tour for 2 adults, 2 kids ages 14 and 9 for a weekday tour. To summarize - it was a thorough, experiential, informative, and centering day. Keith as a guide is generous with his time, his availability to take family pictures, his knowledge of the area's history and flora, and his inclusion with each member of the party - taking time to remember names and engage each of us along the trails and sharing his passion for not only the Dupont State Park, Pisgah National Forest, Biltmore legacies, and Blue Ridge Parkway - - but more importantly, he knows when to step back, and let you stare in amazement at the 3 different waterfalls and scenic overlooks. He's prepared, he makes the trails accessible to all ages, he paces groups well, and when all is said and done, he'll give you the inside track on local bar-b-que with a healthy handshake and smile that makes even the 9-year olds among us realize they've spent 5-6 hours with someone who's eager to keep you safe, share wisdom in the mountain air when all you can hear is the birds, the water, and the refreshing of your Spirit. We enthusiastically recommend this tour.
