    Itinerary

    We pick up near downtown Asheville around 8:45 am for a lovely half-day adventure seeking the BEST waterfalls and trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway and in Pisgah National Forest!

    This is a CUSTOM tour, suitable for groups of seniors or families with young kids. We may also customize your hiking adventure to include a longer Appalachian Trail hike, a scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and Waterfall Tour or even an adventure with Swimholes and Swimming!

    Waters, snacks and hiking poles are included. Your guide drives a clean off-road vehicle for your comfort.

    We generally recommend a return time around 1:30 pm (in time for a late lunch) but we can extend this tour for those interested in a full day of hiking with an optional picnic lunch (at $15/person).

    We recommend wearing sturdy tennis shoes and dressing in layers, with a light jacket for the early morning.

    We booked a private tour for Labor Day. Jennifer was very accommodating, since we booked the tour less than 48 hours in advance. We were three adults and one 5 lbs Maltese puppy :-) We got picked up at our hotel a little before 9am and had the pleasure to meet our wonderful

    Jennifer was great! Everything was so professional from the moment I contacted the tour company. Eventhough the tour we wanted to book wasn't available on the day we planned for, because we had 5 people, she offered a private tour through the BRP for me and my girfriends. She
