Ive lived in Asheville for over 10 years and the Gray Line tour was highly informative. Its also a great way to get around the city for a day if your looking to bar hop. I liked it much better than LaZoom. A little pricey, but well worth it!

I wasn't sure what to expect but but was impressed. The roundtrip is about 90 minutes with 10 stops along the way. You can disembark at any of stops and then catch another trolley. A great feature is parking at the visitors center for free then riding the trolley where you want to go. There is no worry about finding... More

So happy we stumbled upon the Trolley tour! What a wonderful way to learn about Asheville, tour areas that you may not go on your own and have fun meeting new people. We did the "on-off" tour and it's well worth the few extra dollars - esp since you can do a second day free! I loved that we could... More

Our day-after-Christmas tour of Asheville was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Although I had visited Asheville over a hundred times before (we have close relatives there), I had never taken a guided tour of the city. My wife talked me into it, reminding me that there are always interesting things to learn about any city, even... More

Our tour guide and driver, Matt, is an Asheville native, and regaled all of his passengers with humorous stories and anecdotes about past Asheville residents, visitors, and events. In addition, he handled with dignity some difficult events that had taken place in the Asheville area. Most of all, he tied Asheville's past to its present through its architecture, neighborhoods, forests,... More

Our guide Michael was energetic, enthusiastic and a great storyteller! Best of all, he put all the pieces together as he described the history, architecture and places to come back to on our own. Love idea that we can ride a 2nd day. Trolley was warm even though we rode on a brisk day.

We were unsure whether we should take Trolly tours because Asheville is such a small town. We are so glad we did. The two guides Matt and another man gave us so much local information, history and local gossipy stories that we never would have heard about. The town has unusual architecture and NC has a completely different type of... More

The Trolley Tour is a Hop On, Hop Off Red trolley. There are ten stops for local sights or one hour, 45 minute tour of the city. Trolley drivers provided a running diagolue of Asheville's sights and history. Big Shout Out to "Uncle Ted" and Roger (drivers) for their outstanding tour. The Trolley is the best way to see a...

I am really glad we did the trolly tour! It was well worth the money. We had 4 different guides and learned something new each time about the beautiful city of Asheville.

Outstanding tour. Informative, fun, festive, great singing with Bill Birely, included flashlights and song sheets, Uncle Ted, driver and narrator was outstanding, funny, and most interesting. I would recommend this tour to anyone, even Asheville residents.
