Keith was a great tour guide! We loved that he kept us informed a day before the trip as well as the morning of. Pick up time was perfect and really liked that during the drive he had a headset/microphone so you could hear everything. He has a wealth of knowledge on so much history as well as fauna and flora. Great trip overall. We felt like we could have done a little more strenuous and longer hike. The drive to and from hiking felt long to us, but also recognize that it takes time to get to beautiful waterfalls.

Thank you for joining the tour and it was great to meet you both , we appreciate your thoughtful words. The hiking portion of the trip (about 2 hours) is easy to moderate in terms of difficulty for the purpose of this particular tour and you are correct, the ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway is the shortest route to the falls that we visit. We are always looking for ways to improve the experience we offer and thank you again for your comments..

Keith was an amazing guide, made us feel like he was apart of the family. Made sure we were safe and still having a blast at the same time. He was a very funny and down to earth guy no pun intended lol. Learned a lot from him and went to one of the waterfalls that was filmed in the hunger games! That was awesome. Had great snacks and drinks. Loved that he offered to take the pics of me and my husband without us even having to ask. Thank you Keith we appreciate you. Love Megan 😊
