Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and fauna of the area. We saw 3 Amazing waterfalls and beautiful flowers.There was lots of walking but Keith ,our guide, gave me a walking stick which was a great help going up and down the gravel paths. Our guide was professional and patient and brought snacks for our stop by the rocks to watch the waterfall.We came prepared for cold weather but it was warmer than we thought. At the age of 77 with 2 knees and a hip replacement,10 years ago, I was very proud of my achievement in completing the 3-4 mile hike.


Keith was our guide on the Blue Ridge Parkway hiking tour. I highly recommend this activity and found the event to be both fun and educational. If you're in decent shape, the hike is very enjoyable. The trip included a fairly long drive along the parkway, which gave us plenty of time to learn a lot of the history of the area, from Keith.


The tour was great, the waterfalls were beautiful and Keith was very knowledgeable and a great guide. We enjoyed this tour and would recommend!


I had the pleasure of being guided by Keith on a tour, and I must say it was a delightful experience from start to finish. As a guide, Keith was not only knowledgeable but also incredibly engaging. Moreover, his driving skills were a lifesaver for me. I suffer from motion sickness, but thanks to his smooth and careful driving, I did not experience even a hint of discomfort throughout the journey. Thank you Keith for a memorable and enjoyable tour!

This tour was so good! Keith was a great guide. We learned a lot and he took us out, even in the rain, and it was great! Highly recommend this tour. Thanks again, Keith!


Keith was a Fantastic guide. He shared his knowledge about plants and fauna, the water shed, Water Falls and trails in the forest. He was fun to talk With but he also listened. He recited poems about our trees and even had an app for bird sounds!


Keith was a great host and tour guide. He knew and shared a lot of information about the hike, the waterfalls, Biltmore House and other must-do's in the Asheville area. Would definitely book again.

This hike and tour of the waterfalls was amazing!!! Our guide Keith was amazing and if I could I would rate this a 10+. Certainly a check off my bucket list. If you happen to be in Asheville book this excursion- you won’t be disappointed!


Keith was a great guide for our half-day out to see several beautiful waterfalls. The walking in to the falls was fairly easy, some short inclines, mostly on a gravel path. There were only four of us on the tour.


My wife and I did the waterfall tour with Keith and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Keith is incredibly knowledgeable and had an answer for every question we asked. He is very friendly and a great guide for showing you the Blue Ridge Mountains and the waterfalls. I would recommend anyone take this tour!
