We picked a perfect day to do the trail. Not our first time. Checking was easy, getting set up with a bike went smoothly, and the ride to the to of White Top Mountain was entertaining. They know what they are doing, and do it well. We had a great time on the trail. Christmas tree farms, pumpkin patch, and... More

Decided to do the Virginia Creeper Trail White Top to Damascus and sought out a business that was all inclusive. Adventure Damascus is that place. Bike, shuttle, info, suggestions on dog boarding, friendliness of staff was the reasons we chose Adventure Damascus. For such a small hamlet, there are more bike rental places than restaurants and bathrooms, but Adventure Damascus... More

I was hesitant to take the shuttle with my expensive electric bike, but was happy to see the care the driver and another employee took hanging our bikes and strapping them in. It was a 45 minute shuttle up to Mount Rogers. The driver made sure the air conditioning was comfortable and they kept to their schedule. Reasonable pricing and... More

We very much enjoyed our Virginia Creeper trail experience. Made all the better by the helpful and professional staff in Adventure Damascus. Everything was made easy for us, from booking in the shop, cycle fitting and transport to the mountain top by a very experienced guide! A great day was enjoyed by all.

We booked a tour of the Virginia Creeper Trail through Adventure Damascus. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about the trip. They provided bicycles, helmets and water for us and shuttled us to a mid-way stop on the trail. We cycled from this point 17 miles, downhill, back to Adventures Damascus. The staff were all friendly and helpful- they told... More

I don't know about any of the other bike-rental companies as I have only used Adventure Damascus. They were extremely helpful on the phone when I called to make our reservations. They were extremely helpful in the store and took time to give me some helpful tips on where to eat, what to see and do, etc. I would definitely... More

This is our go to bike shuttle. The bikes are very nice. The staff is so helpful on the phone and off the phone. Our reservations have always been spot on, the service of fitting for bikes was fast and most pleasant. We had a great time and look forward to be repeat customers.

On arrival, the shop was well organized, quick to take our money and fitted us for our biking experience. The bikes we rented were top quality and appeared to be well maintained. The ride to the beginning of the "Creeper Trail" was made in a clean 15 passenger van. The trail was a great ride through the Va. countryside and... More

We loved being able to cycle along this beautiful stretch of scenery. It is pretty much all downhill and the most strenuous part is flat! They sort your bike out for you very efficiently, then send you and your bike up to the top in a mini-van and bike trailer, which takes around half an hour. It is a good... More

I have taken this ride many times but this is the first time using Adventure Damascus. Chris, who answered the phone was friendly, polite and reserved our trip quickly. I was riding with my brother and sister-in-law. Both my brother and I are in our 60's and have ridden for years. For anyone who rides much at all this is... More

Thank you for your response. We all work hard to try and give the kind of service that Chris and Hamilton provided. There is no excuse for anything less. I have addressed the situation and promise that we will try to never repeat those mistakes. Thank you again for taking the time to comment. I do apologize for the experience. More
