Great tour - This is a tip based free Walking Tour. No need to book via Viator, just reach out to the company directly. Our guide was Mike, and he was very interesting and informative. Our tour was about 2 hours long, and we walked about 1.5 miles through Downtown Asheville. It was a great tour, Mike filled us in with history and fun facts about Asheville. He also gave us recommendations for later during our visit. Highly recommend it!
